Cabot McNenly

Cabot McNenly developed an early interest in image-making
when he purchased his first stills camera with paper route
money at the age of nine and, since graduating from the York
University Film Studies program, he has shot a wide range of
material in all formats and genres. Most recently Cabot was
the Director of Photography on CBC’s acclaimed comedy
series Cavendish, created by and starring Andrew Bush and
Mark Little and produced by Temple Street. In 2020, Cabot
was nominated twice for his work on Cavendish by both The
Canadian Society of Cinematographers (CSC) and the
Canadian Screen Awards (CSA). His work on Cameron
Pictures’ Little Dog for CBC – his first foray into scripted
television – earned Cabot a 2019 CSC Award for best
cinematography in a comedy; prior to this, he had twice been
nominated by the CSC for his work on short films, including
Steven McCarthy’s striking O Negative, selected by Toronto
International Film Festival (TIFF) as one of Canada’s Top Ten
Shorts of 2015.
Earlier work includes the 2010 Toronto Film Critics Awardwinning
feature film You Are Here, along with a variety of
credits on short films, documentaries and several feature
films. With over 12 feature films to his credit and many more
in development, Cabot has collaborated with a number of the
country’s best up-and-coming producers and directors. His
work has been shown at festivals around the world, including
Locarno, South By Southwest, Hot Docs, and TIFF.
