Jenise Whitehead earned a BA in Spanish from San Francisco State University after studying abroad in la Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Upon her graduation, she co-directed "Gideon's Cross" in Outfest Los Angeles’ OutSet program. The film screened at Outfest Fusion, Outfest LA, Outfest Santo Domingo and Outfest LA Online by DirecTV in 2014. She then trained in Panavision Hollywood’s two-year program and joined IATSE International Cinematographers Guild Local 600 in the fall of 2016. She was chosen out of 700 applicants to study in American Film Institute's inaugural Cinematography Intensive for Women in the summer of 2018. As a cinematographer, Jenise intends to lens stories that reflect being Black, female and queer in South LA, to humanize an experience that has yet to be fully explored in cinema and is often marginalized in society.
