South Africa-born cinematographer Ted Moore moved to England in 1930. During WWII, he was an RAF pilot, and then a part of the RAF's Film Unit. During his stint in the air force, Moore successfully completed many combat missions and earned medals for his courage. After the war, he became a camera operator in the British film industry where he did films such as Outcast of the Islands (1951) and Genevieve (1953). He became a director of photography in the mid-'50s. By the 1960s, Moore earned recognition as one of the industry's finest color and wide-screen cinematographers; this led him to film the distinctively photographed James Bond thrillers. In 1966, he won an Academy Award for his work on A Man for All Seasons.
