“What I love about Alard is the support he gives you. He has a unique eye, a remarkable work ethic and he is a brave dp in that he’s open to trying new things. He always has a ton of value to bring to the table and is a great collaborator.

Kim Geldenhuys

Alard is the first person I book. He is a leader, a collaborator, a visionary, a friend, a rock solid individual who will carry the whole crew if needs be. I can’t even count the number of times he has “pulled it out of the fire” for me.

Kevin Fitzgerald

Having produced some incredibly challenging work in the industry, Alard is by far the most invaluable DOP I have worked with. He is a producer’s knight in shining armor, and is an absolute pleasure to work with.
