Cinematographer Makes History With ‘Yellowstone’ Series – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth


The women’s story is told every day at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth.

And director of photography Christina Voros is one of the women who made history and won the honors of the museum.

Voros grew up wanting to be an actress, then discovered her talent for cinematography while shooting her own documentaries.

Ten years ago, she found her niche doing stories about the West.

Now she is making history on the set of the popular series “Yellowstone” and its prequel “1883”.

Voros served as the sole female director and cinematographer for “Yellowstone.” This accolade made her a 2021 recipient of the Patsy Montana Award at the Cowgirl Museum.

She first came to prominence at the museum five years ago while researching a “A Year in the Life” film following young cowgirls who embarked on the life of ranchers. This project has been put on hold, but she is now looking to return to the project as it may evolve into an extended account of their lives from five years ago to where they are now.

“We are used to seeing women in front of the camera rather than behind it, so we are particularly pleased to honor Voros,” said the Museum’s Associate Executive Director, Dr. Diana Vela. in a press release. “She is a role model for other young women who want to create behind the lens and be part of the larger conversation about diversity and inclusion in media.”

“It’s the greatest honor I can imagine,” Voros said. “Winning an Oscar would mean less than that. The women who are part of this organization are heroes and trailblazers to me. It’s very easy to take for granted that I’m a director, cinematographer, producer and a woman. C It was unheard of for us to be so numerous in this field just ten years ago. I think that’s changing, but it’s not changing fast enough.

“It is essential for all of us to accept a helping hand when needed and lend a helping hand to those who come up behind us,” she said.

Voros grew up on the East Coast, married a cowboy from West Texas where they now live, but the couple plan to move to Fort Worth.

But Montana first comes in April to work on the next season of “Yellowstone.”
