Kyle I. Kelley

I am a Brooklyn, NY based cinematographer, originally from South Burlington, Vermont. I enjoy working on all types of projects, from short fiction to feature documentaries, and everything in-between.

I got my start making short films with my friends in my high school's Imaging Lab. I try to maintain the spirit of those early collaborations in my everyday work. There are very few occupations that allow you to choose the people you work with. For me, filmmaking is all about telling amazing stories while working with people you love. Unlike most other jobs, being a cinematographer means that I constantly get to meet new people to add to my group of friends and collaborators.
