Time keeping, crew behaviour, dress and manners all come, at least in part, from the DP and so they set the standard for the professional approach of the crew. DPs are responsible for all matters pertaining to the photography of the film – lighting, exposure, composition, cleanliness, etc. are all, ultimately, their responsibility.
