My name is Sam Graydon. I've been a Cinematographer and Director of Photography since 2008. I studied film formally at the university level, and I’ve worked on a variety of projects, large and small, over the past decade. I've created work in all genres - from commercial to art-house. I can operate with large crews and budgets, or be scrappy and resourceful with a limited budget when the need arises.
No matter what the budget or genre, my main interest is always storytelling from a collaborative place. This means that my cinematography supports the story first. All other considerations are secondary.
I have been in the industry since 2006.
