Jake Dugger is a cinematographer based in Los Angeles and Atlanta. Born and raised in Georgia, he started his career as a Casting Director's assistant for such hits as Vampire Diaries, Containment and The Originals (none of which he's actually seen). Moving to LA to follow his passion for filmmaking he would discover the intricacies of cinematography and study under Johnny Jensen A.S.C. and Bill Dill A.S.C. and Conrad Hall Jr. It was from their mentorship he would build a strong foundation in narrative, but has taking this storytelling-centric approach several music videos and is currently pushing into the commercial world.
Jake's passion is to help directors to define the a piece's visual language through new and exciting techniques. He believes that cinematography is when art meets science and in order for one to be a great artist must also be a great craftsman.
I have been in the industry since 2016.
