About Me

Jesse Todd is a cinematographer in Denver, CO with a background in Documentary and TV, with a passion for storytelling and the craftsmanship of camera operation. With an education from the Colorado Film School and certifications including scuba for underwater film work, Jesse has experience in almost every form of video production. Traveling internationally to capture narrative style documentary films, to capturing local corporate events and commercials, Jesse incorporates his attention to detail and hard work ethic to capture dramatic and beautiful images.

Working in Denver means a lot of run and gun film work, so the ability to light a scene quickly but still create unique and stunning image is an essential skill. With experience as a gaffer and in recording and producing music, Jesse has the ability to direct multiple teams or find ways to work alone when necessary. His creativity, versatility, and dedication to effective storytelling makes him an excellent asset on any production.

I have been in the industry since 2010.
