The Director of Photography is also known as the Cinematographer of the D.O.P. for short.

What does a director of photography do? Directors of photography are responsible for the photographic heart of a production. They read the screenplay and work closely with the director to discuss the look and feel of a film. They then research how to create the look through lighting, framing and camera movement and what they will need in terms of kit and crew to achieve this.
