The Art of

Cinematic Imagery

DC Brandon

Edmonton Cinematographer

Painting with Light

10 years of production experience behind the camera has taught me one thing: beautiful cinematography starts with understanding light.

Allowing the shadows to talk

I adore shadows in the frame and understand that taking away light is just as important as adding it in.



Harnessing the power of colour

I understand colour and the psychological effects of using different tones to help convey meaning

A richly coloured, natural feel is what I love most.

I love shaping natural light for a beautiful, timeless feel.
