Colourist Peter Doyle has joined the Picture Shop roster.

Doyle, who will be based in Los Angeles, has worked on Oscar-winning films including “The Tragedy of Macbeth,” “Cyrano,” “The Theory of Everything,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “King Kong,” and the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

“Peter is well known throughout our industry for his collaboration, innovation and artistry,” says Picture Shop President Cara Sheppard. “His addition to our outstanding global team will only further strengthen Picture Shop’s offerings to filmmakers.”

Doyle’s list of feature credits includes Azazel Jacobs’ “His Three Daughters,” Michael B. Jordan’s “Creed III,” Ethan Coen’s “Drive Away Dolls,” Guy Ritchie’s “The Gentleman,” Tim Burton’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow,” as well as David Yate’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and 2,” “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” and “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.”

A  collaborator in technology development, Doyle used custom software to colour grade scenes of the “The Matrix” and employed the first DI grading packages for “The Lord of the Rings.” He helped create a DI facility for WB to grade the Harry Potter films and worked with the Coen Bros. on their first digitally originated film “The Battle of Buster Scruggs.”

Prior to joining Picture Shop, Doyle was at PostWorks New York. He is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Production and Technology Branch, an associate member of the American Society of Cinematographers and an executive member of SMPTE.

“Picture Shop offers artists an amazing opportunity to have a global reach with locations around the world, which is essential for filmmakers,” notes Doyle. “Depth of knowledge, a deep pool of experience, workflows and resources all allow the Picture Shop team to handle everything from a NY indie to a large, tentpole vfx intensive film. I’m thrilled to be part of it.”
