Game of Thrones’ Official Photographer on Her 14 Favorite Behind-the-Scenes Shots
Helen Sloan isn’t as famous a name to Game of Thrones fans as Emilia Clarke or Kit Harington, but the photographer has played as integral a role in the HBO epic as any of its actors. As the series’ principal unit photographer, she has outlasted many on-camera stars (and even preceded some, including Clarke, who took on the role of Daenerys Targaryen after the original pilot was shot). Though she’s gotten help along the way — she can’t be in two locations at once, so HBO employs other photographers too — the most memorable Game of Thrones set images you’ve seen over the past eight seasons have probably been shot from her point of view.

Since first hearing of the job back in 2009, when Game of Thrones was still just an HBO pilot shooting between Northern Ireland and Morocco, Sloan has snapped thousands of portraits and behind-the-scenes images that launched thousands of fan theories. Ahead of the show’s final premiere, Sloan shared her 14 favorite photographs from the past eight seasons and explained what made each one so special.

like the audience, Sloan’s time with Sean Bean was limited, but she made the most of it — especially with the scenes in the Godswood of Winterfell, which she describes as “a really beautiful place to shoot.” Sloan loved this image in particular because it serves as a reminder of what life was like for the Starks “before the shit hit the fan.” “It’s a moment where everything is still okay because he’s still alive,” she said. “Everything was still, everyone was still together, and everything was still kind of okay.”
