About Me

An Award Winning Director of Photography, Lighting Director, Camera Operator and Gaffer. J. Poisson has over 7 years of professional experience working on narrative films (short and feature), music videos, corporate videos and commercials.

Rhode Island native J. Poisson has always had a strong passion for film. As a child, her favorite thing to do was go to the movies. One such childhood movie, Explorers (1985), caught J's imagination so much she thought that she and her kindergardner friends, like the characters in the movie, where going to build a spaceship and explore space. To say the least, fantasy and reality had to be explained to J. about her interstellar ambitions.

Of course her ambitions remained high, J. doesn't seek the limelight of the camera but rather control of the lights and camera. She has served as Director of Photography or Lighting Director on 11 feature films and 16 short films.

I have been in the industry since 2006.
