The 10th Hall Of Fame Inductee For Contribution To Cinematography - Adam Greenberg

Beginning his long career as a DP in 1966, Adam Greenberg (born Adam Grinberg in Krakow, Poland, raised in Tel Aviv) from the mid-sixties and throughout the seventies worked in Israel, most notably the Golan and Globus-produced Lemon Popsicle. After working with Sam Fuller on The Big Red One in 1980, he began working in North America on all manner of genre films throughout the 1980s, most notably The Terminator, Near Dark, Three Men And A Baby and Turner & Hooch, before his greatest success in the early-nineties. Following on from 1990’s smash-hit romance Ghost, he shot James Cameron’s long-awaited sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Greenberg’s work on this film, expertly capturing all of the action, drama and visual effects and unifying them into a single cohesive visual aesthetic, earned him an Academy Award nomination. He would continue to work throughout the nineties and early-2000s, several times again with Arnold Schwarzenegger, but has gradually reduced his work-rate, his last major feature being 2006’s Snakes On A Plane and most recently 2013’s documentary Footsteps In Jerusalem.
