Evelin is a Dutch cinematographer, currently based in London, and hailed by British Cinematographer Magazine as part of the New Wave in 2019. She picked up a nomination for the BSC's Short Film Cinematography Award in 2018 and 2019, and she is working in features, TV drama, and commercials. 


Her most recent credits include ITV’s Vera (2022) with director Paul Gay, and Channel 4’s crime series My Name Is Lizzie (2021, 2nd Unit) with directors Niall MacCormick and Jenny Ash. Evelin is well-known for her distinctive imagery, both still and moving. Visceral, textured and intricate, akin to paintings.


She is instinctively drawn to stories which unearth the complexities, psychology and fragility of our human existence, our psyche, and our behaviour. She is a lover of fine art, sports, the great outdoors, travelling Planet Earth, an environmentalist, supporter of mental health, and very sensitive to the eternal qualities of film.
