Teamwork and group effort is the Loach modus operandi. Loach has denied his status as an auteur director. Unlike most directors who routinely overstate the importance of their personal achievements, Loach celebrates the contributions of his crew, such as frequent collaborator, cinematographer Barry Ackroyd.

Film reviewer Jack Matthews of the New York Daily News remarked about the filmmaking behind The Wind That Shakes The Barley: "Beautifully shot, both in darkened homes and on the misty green Irish landscape by Loach's frequent cinematographer Barry Ackroyd, "Wind" has a you-are-there intensity and intimacy about it that make it nearly overwhelming."

In 2016, he reunited with Greengrass for the fourth time for the fourth Jason Bourne movie.
