Janusz Zygmunt Kamiński, A.S.C. (born June 27 1959) is a two-time Academy Award-winning Polish cinematographer and film director; he has photographed all of Steven Spielberg's movies since 1993's "Schindler's List".

Kamiński was born in Ziębice, Poland. He emigrated at the age of 21—after Prime Minister Jaruzelski imposed martial law in 1981—to the United States. There he attended Columbia College in Chicago from 1982 to 1987, taking up film making as a profession before transferring to the AFI Conservatory, where he graduated with an M.F.A. degree.

Kamiński won the Academy Award for Best Cinematography twice in the 1990s, for "Schindler's List" and "Saving Private Ryan".

Kamiński was married to actress Holly Hunter from 1995 until 2001. He married ABC reporter Rebecca Rankin in 2004.

While accepting his 2008 Independent Spirit Award for Best Cinematography for "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly", Kamiński stated he earned $3,000 per week for his work on the film, far below his alleged normal fee of $6,000 - $12,000 per day. He joked that he would not be able to accommodate young filmmakers for the same fee.
