My name is John Lewis and I have been a videographer and a director of photography in multimedia and television for over twenty years. I have experience ranging from 30 sec spots for Ad agencies to full seasons of Reality shows and everything in between! I am also an experienced gaffer and audio engineer, sort of a one-man-band if needed.
Originally from Hawaii, I relocated to Texas in 2017 for work. After landing several jobs in Houston, Dallas and Austin I consider myself a "traveling DP" working as a local throughout Texas. I live part-time in Houston and Austin. My Houston address is 3614 Fairvalley Drive.
Fun Fact: I filmed my first movie at the age of 11 on my Grandfather's 8mm camera and edited it myself with scotch tape.
I was living in Hawaii, where I owned a production company, producing and working on regional television shows, documentaries and commercials. One day, while sipping a very tall Mai Tai under a palm tree on a white sand beach, I had a profound calling. The voice said, “It’s time for you and your company to leave this island paradise, go out into the world and share your varied and brilliant video/cinematic skills with others.” I quickly heeded to the call and here I am, a video/cinematic Guru based in a strange and rugged new land, Texas.
