BIOGRAPHY

Like many cinematographers, John Toll began his career as a camera operator. He worked with many noted filmmakers, including Martin Ritt on "Norma Rae" (1978), James Bridges on "Urban Cowboy" (1980), Karel Reisz on "Sweet Dreams" (1985), Francis Ford Coppola on "Peggy Sue Got Married" (1986) and Robert Redford on "The Milagro Beanfield War" (1988). He moved up to second unit photography on Steven Spielberg's "Always" (1989) and landed his first job as director of photography for Carroll Ballard's uneven "Wind" (1992). Toll won praise and an Oscar for his sweeping, panoramic, yet intimate work on "Legends of the Fall" (1994). The following year, he lensed the equally epic "Braveheart" (1995) which earned him a second Oscar.
