Omar Juarez

Director of Photography

Who I am

“The frame is my canvas, the camera is my brush and the lights are my paint, I don’t just shoot, I create.”

What I do

I’m a freelance Director of Photography, I’ve shot features, shorts and commercial work. I love all aspects of art from painting to photography. I believe that every frame should be a painting, the sound could go off and the audience would still be too captivated by the imagery on screen to notice. A lot of my influences come from master painters like Caravaggio and Rembrandt, their use of chiaroscuro always intrigued me and I try to use a lot of their lighting techniques in my cinematography.
