Alan Hume (b. October 16, 1924, in London, England) is a British cinematographer. He worked on Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

His early credits as camera operator included Great Expectations (1948), Madeleine (1950) and The End of the Affair (1955). He was a cameraman for the successful Carry On comedy films, eventually alternating with Ernest Steward as the series' regular Director of Photography, beginning in 1961 with Carry On Regardless. Other sixties credits included horror films The Kiss of the Vampire (Hammer Films) and Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965, for Amicus Productions). Among his later films were A View to a Kill, A Fish Called Wanda, and Shirley Valentine.

He had four children, all of whom followed him into the film industry.

Behind the scenes

During the filming of Return of the Jedi, Alan had a falling out with the film's producers because he felt they were mistreating the director, Richard Marquand. He was never officially fired, but the photography during the entire last month of filming was handled primarily by his assistant, Alec Mills.
