He brings a unique skill set to every production—whether in a distant location or on a Hollywood set—by being adaptive, open-minded, thoroughly prepared and unflappable in focus. Well known for his action and lifestyle cinematography, he has shot commercials for Ford, Toyota, American Express, Cabela's, Eddie Bauer/First Ascent, Victory motorcycles, Arctic Cat, Ski Doo and many others. In addition, his work on major Hollywood features includes shooting on Bourne Legacy, Gangster Squad, Iron Man 1,2 & 3, Cowboys & Aliens, Limitless, & The Other Guys. Most recently he has worked on Captain America: Winter Soldier, Lone Survivor and the yet to be released Insurgent and Everest of which Kent served as the 2nd Unit Director of Photography.
Kent is member of the distinguished Society of Camera Operators (SOC) and is an Emmy-award winning cinematographer. His talent and broad skills establish him as one of the most sought-after, professional and well-respected in the business.
Kent’s experience climbing and filming on six of the famed “Seven Summits,” including Mt. Everest twice (2009/2012) as well as in remote locations around the world such as Antarctica, Asia and South America, earned Kent a broad worldview with a global, human perspective. This, along with his active lifestyle as a climber, mountaineer, skier, kayaker and mountain biker, combine to form the distinct perspective he brings to every project.
When not working, you can find Kent spending time with his wife, Amy, and their two young daughters likely enjoying time in the mountains.
