Fabian Wagner is a German cinematographer. His roles in the production of the television shows Sherlock and Game of Thrones have earned him two Creative Arts Emmy Award nominations. In 2017, he won the American Society of Cinematographers Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography in Regular Series for his work on the Game of Thrones episode “Battle of the Bastards”.
He shot his first studio picture ‘Victor Frankenstein’ for 20th
Century Fox and director Paul McGuigan. The success of Game of Thrones put him on the map for another studio
picture, Justice League for Warner Brothers and director Zack Snyder.
He then shot two Episodes of ‘The Crown’ for director and old time
friend Sam Donovan.
After graduating from the Louis Lumière film school in 1982, Gautier began work as an assistant camera operator director on Alain Resnais’s film Life Is a Bed of Roses. He left the job soon after, however, and chose instead to work as the director of photography on short films. He shot 60 films before returning to feature film work. The first feature-length film he photographed was La Vie des morts, released in 1991 and directed by Arnaud Desplechin. He won a César Award for his cinematography on Those Who Love Me Can Take the Train (1998), and received nominations for his work on Sentimental Destinies (2000), Clean (2004), Gabrielle (2005), Private Fears in Public Places (2006), and A Christmas Tale (2008). He has worked on many other French films, collaborating most often with Alain Resnais and the directors Olivier Assayas, Arnaud Desplechin, and Claude Berri.
Gautier began working in the international film in the early 2000s, beginning with The Motorcycle Diaries, for which he won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Cinematography and the 2004 Cannes Film Festival Technical Grand Prize, and was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Cinematography. After seeing The Motorcycle Diaries, American actor/filmmaker Sean Penn approached Gautier to shoot the 2007 film Into the Wild, for which he won a Lumière Award. He subsequently served as director of photography on the American films Taking Woodstock (2009), Grace of Monaco (2014), Welcome Back (2015) and The Mercy (2018). Presently, he shifts between professional commitments in Europe and overseas : Ash Is Purest White (Jia Zhangke), La Vérité (Hirokazu Kore-eda), A Tramway in Jerusalem (Amos Gitai) and L’Apparition (Xavier Giannoli).
