Who am I?

I’m Gavin Ash, I’m a freelance Cinematographer from Melbourne, Australia, currently based in Los Angeles, CA.

I began at an Australian boutique wedding cinema studio (Wheelhouse Studios) as an assistant editor while still in high school.

In 2014, I moved to the United States to pursue my love of film-making, at a film school called Full Sail University.  There I was privileged to have the opportunity to shoot on 16mm and 35mm motion picture film. Upon graduating in August 2015 with a Bachelor of Science Film Degree, I moved to California.

I have been freelancing for 6 years as a cinematographer on narratives, commercials, music videos, and corporate media.  This experience gives me a wide range of knowledge on different camera systems that allows me to make an informed camera format choice based on the needs of the production.

Currently I’m the in-house Director of Photography and Associate Producer at Elevated Media Productions based in Westlake Village, CA.  Elevated is an Award Winning creative agency that promotes brands, products, causes and ideas.

Gavin recently helped me out on a short student film I was Director of Photography for. Not only did he volunteer heaps of his time to the project, he kindly imparted much wisdom and taught me a lot about technical aspects of filmmaking, camera work and cinematography. I’m still not convinced we would have wrapped shooting on time if it wasn’t for his extra help, and his camera prodigy skills. 🙂
