Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joseph Walker, A.S.C. (August 22, 1892 - August 1, 1985) was an American cinematographer who worked on 145 films during a career that spanned thirty-three years. Born Joseph Bailey Walker in Denver, Colorado, Walker worked as a wireless telephone engineer, inventor, and photographer of documentaries for the Red Cross during World War I before starting his feature film career in 1919 with the Canadian film Back to God's Country, which was filmed near the Arctic Circle. For the next seven years he freelanced at various studios, working for noted directors W.S. Van Dyke, Francis Ford, and George B. Seitz, among others. He joined Columbia Pictures in 1927 and worked almost exclusively at the studio until he retired in 1952.show more
