About Me

Hello! My name is McKinleigh and I am a documentary cinematographer. I currently freelance as a cameraperson and drone operator for Vice News and several feature length documentary productions.

I am fully vaccinated, have an FAA Part 107 drone certification, and own my own gear, including a Canon C300 mkii, lenses, a DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone, lenses, and equipment to run sound.

I have been in the industry since 2012.
