He then turned his lens toward motion content as a cinematographer shooting TV commercials and films for brands such as ABC Family, KIA, and Xbox. You can see examples of his work at www.augustbradley.com
While continuing an active schedule in both commercial photography and cinematography, August is now also working as Director/Producer on innovative narrative projects that simultaneously span TV, theater, digital, and gallery exhibition.
Throughout his career, August has been at the forefront of applying the most advanced technology toward artistic ends. Be it lenses, cameras, and lighting or new communication and distribution technology to serve clients and reach disparate audiences, August is constantly experimenting and finding effective new methods to tell stories.
Filming the horses running wild and free just beyond the ranch, on the southern tip of the California Sierras near Lake Isabelle, was among the most remarkable experiences of my life. These incredible animals had such a combined power and grace, they would rush toward me filling the viewfinder so rapidly as they approached that holding the camera steady tracking with them was an act of faith that I would not be run over.
