Gaffers in Los Angeles, CA

Brandon Le [Daybreak Lighting & Camera]
208 (100%)
I'm a freelance cinematographer and photographer, as well as a graduate from the University of Southern California! I've been working in film for quite a few years now, practicing throughout middle and high school, and now have been working seriously for about three years. As a cinematographer, I shoot everything from corporate and event work, to music videos, and short narratives. As a photographer I find myself gravitating towards portrait work, and if you look at my Instagram I have a massive obsession with streets and alleys.
