SCROLL TO EXPLORE

Cooke Gallery London

Cooke Gallery is a tribute to the artistry of cinematography in motion pictures, where we will host different exhibitions ongoing. The first of these is FOCUS, an exhibition looking at the creative ways cinematographers have used focus to evoke emotions and elevate storytelling.

Cooke London test space

Cooke London test space has been designed to support cinematographers and the creatives they collaborate with to review and test The Cooke Look® on both spherical and anamorphic lenses across a range of leading camera manufacturers’ digital cameras.

In the new space cinematographers can change wall surface textures or swap backgrounds for Colorama papers or green screen, as one would in a photographic studio. The space has employed space-saving asymmetric lights on dimmer controls to evenly key the background and back light subjects. We also offer an array of leading lighting options using the latest LED technology that combine controlling colour options and lighting FX.

DaVinci Resolve suite with HDR monitoring enables cinematographers to grade their transcoded material or produce LUT’s on site to review how Cooke lenses respond to their needs.
