Douglas Milsome BSC, ASC (born 1939) is an English cinematographer.


Milsome was born in Hammersmith, London, England, in 1939.

Sometimes credited as Doug Milsome, perhaps his most-widely seen work to date is Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. He collaborated with Stanley Kubrick and John Alcott in the 1970s, as camera operator and second-unit photographer, and became Kubrick's director of photography for Full Metal Jacket. Known for his mastery of difficult focus techniques, tested especially with the idiosyncratic lenses used on Barry Lyndon to film scenes by candlelight, he was consulted for Kubrick's final project, Eyes Wide Shut.[1]

Milsome has gravitated toward genres such as science fiction and fantasy, where he is known for his brooding style. He is member of both the American and British Societies of Cinematographers.
