A Northwest native now based in Los Angeles, Ian McGlocklin Sinclair is not merely a cinematographer; he is a lighting cameraman, camera operator and an accomplished gaffer. His work encompasses a wide range of content from shooting documentaries in China and Central America to lighting up New York Street at Universal Studio's back lot. Independent films, commercials and music videos are the backbone of his cinematography in which he's had the privilege of working with some of today's top name talent like Carmen Electra, Breckin Meyer, Brittany Murphy, Ernst Borgnine, Wayne Newton, Bill Pullman, George Cheung and Cybill Shepherd. Additionally, a number of his commercial credits as cinematographer include spots for AAMCO, Blue Cross, Direct TV, AARP and Prince Tennis.
Since graduating with honors from Boston's Emerson College film program in 1999, Ian has been honing the cinematography craft for a decade by training his eye, mind and hand via lighting and shooting a wide scope of visual content. His background in gaffing has made him extremely versatile in merging light and composition into an efficient use of time and resources with stunning results. Ian's work on narrative projects such as the independent features "Acts of Worship," "Out There" and "Corporate Affairs" have traveled globally which included stops at the Sundance and Tribeca film festivals. He's provided cinematography services for the production company Video Arts Studios in which a number of commercials have won local Telly awards. His artistry as cinematographer on the short film "Gabriel y Gato" played a significant roll in helping director Andrew Mudge win the 2003 Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival competition.
Flexible across all capture mediums, Ian strives to be well versed with the constantly changing landscape of filmmaking tools. He'll work within a production's budget to provide the best possible options in camera and lighting equipment for the job. He believes in not letting the budget or equipment stand in the way of telling a visually compelling story. A member of the International Cinematographers Guild, Ian is extremely collaborative, crew friendly, imaginative and most importantly driven to make the best of every situation with a smile on his face.
