“The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
— Steve Jobs
Brandon Haynes is an award-winning narrative and commercial cinematographer and director based in Brooklyn, NY. He started his creative journey as a photographer in 2009 and fell in love with cinematography after attending Denver’s SeriesFest in 2016. Teaching himself the rules and tricks of the trade, he now blends the worlds of music, fashion, and sports with his love for TV and cinema. His drive to continually perfect his craft, and capture a striking balance of color and shadow, has allowed him to shoot for a diverse array of clients including Hennessy, Uptown Magazine, Adidas, Sony Music, Biden For President, Nestle, Essence Magazine, BET, Volkswagen, Doordash, Facebook, American Red Cross and Google. In 2020, he made his narrative directorial debut with the short film "Carol Crawford". The early reception of the film has been positive, including numerous awards and nominations for Best First Time Director & Best Cinematography from the likes of the Los Angeles Cinematography Awards, Wales International Film Festival, & Boulevard Film Festival.
