Not a perfect measure & not a comprehensive, but here's are the rules. I go through every notable release, major or independent. If they have a credited D.P., I look up their work. If it's enough notable films for people to discern their esteem in a D.P., I include and rank them by cinematographer. If it's few notable films, they're not included.
This is meant only as a reference for those who can't decide if they should see a film based on its director. Often who they choose to shoot a film is the penchant of a promising, if not necessarily great, work. That's what I'm looking for. Whose previous work inspires interest & whose inspire suspicion.
