BRIAN NGUYEN

Brian Nguyen is a cinematographer based in Los Angeles, CA. During his time at the University of Florida, from which he received a B.S. degree in Human Nutrition, Brian shot videos and photos for various local artists and fell in love with shooting. He decided to make the professional move to Los Angeles and pursue cinematography full-time. After working for several years as a camera assistant, Brian enrolled as a Cinematography Fellow at the prestigious American Film Institute. Under the guidance and mentorship of Stephen Lighthill, ASC, Bill Dill, ASC, Jacek Laskus, ASC, and many more, he honed his skills and most importantly developed his storytelling abilities through camera and lighting. Brian aims to evoke emotion, tension, and beauty through the visual medium of film.
