I'm John Cummings, an award-winning cinematographer/lighting cameraman. I distill decades of incredibly diverse experience into every project I touch. I work worldwide with documentary filmmakers, production shops, content producers, ad agencies, indy producers and directors--shooting corporate and marketing videos, entertainment programs, documentaries and doc elements, branded content and doc-style commercials. I've shot for some of America's biggest brands- including Mercedes Benz, Nike, Wahl and Kahlua, as well as hundreds of segments and episodes for popular network programs on HGTV, DIY, PBS, Discovery, Food Network, History and Animal Planet. Also Getty, BBC, ITV, RTE and Al Jazeera English. 

Have a smaller production in mind? I also self-produce affordable videos that can have a big impact helping nonprofits reach out to donors and their community...and I help small businesses to connect with their customers or employees. These turnkey services could save you thousands compared to traditional brick and mortar production shops.

Whatever your project might be, chances are I've shot something very similar before. I'm known in the industry as a versatile, creative and efficient cinematographer, capable of producing high-quality work quickly and cleanly. A well-seasoned pro that can roll with whatever might happen and deliver the goods. Someone who can make even the most mundane subject matter look fresh and interesting, someone who can "run and gun" while still producing a nice cinematic look.
