About Me

Director of Photography with over 15 years of experience shooting hundreds of TV shows, Documentaries, Corporate projects, and Branded Content. I know Washington DC like the back of my hand, yet I've also shot extensively in over 25 countries.

I own a Sony FX9, Sony FS7, Xeen Cine Primes, Sony A7iii, Ronin-S, Sony Wireless lavs, OSMO, Dana dolly, and an arsenal of lights, including HMI's. I also fly a Mavic Pro 2 and shoot underwater.

I’m PADI certified, FAA certified, and will literally go out on a limb to get the right shot.

If you need more than a cameraman, I also Direct and Produce. My website is mfcormier.com and I can be reached at 202-669-3366 or mfcormier@gmail.com.

I have been in the industry since 2001.

I worked with Mike Cormier recently in Washington DC, filming a Sky Arts documentary for UK TV. Excellent, professional DoP, a real pleasure to work with and very good with talent. Highly recommend him. Len Brown

Working with Mike is always a great experience. I am often amazed by his creativity, and appreciative of his devotion to each project. He goes above and beyond each time and makes me feel like he has given each and every one of my projects his all! I would highly recommend him.
