Ronnie Taylor (born 27 October 1924) is a British Cinematographer, who has collaborated with directors Richard Attenborough and Dario Argento. He was born in Hampstead, London and joined the film business at nineteen. He first worked for Gainsborough Studios at Lime Grove in Shepherds Bush. This studio was later taken over by the BBC and was used before Television Centre was built. It was also used after TV Centre was built for current affairs programmes such as Nationwide. Taylor's first film was as a clapper boy on The Young Mr Pitt (1942). That year he went into the services and on his return went back to work with film. He became an operator and went on to become a director of photography, winning an Oscar for Gandhi. Lime Grove was demolished in the 1990s to make way for housing. Ronnie Taylor retired to Spain.
