    About me

    Ashton Rae is a cinematographer and camera junkie based in Los Angeles. She is known for her realist approach in lighting a frame to emphasize the human condition. Artwork and nature are components that inform her organized approach to recreate a story's thematic messages and riveting undercurrents. Her body of work consists of scripted narrative films and television, in addition to music videos and commercials.

    A graduate of USC's School of Cinematic Arts, Ashton has nearly a decade of experience in production as a cinematographer. In that time she has lensed a number of features; shot a myriad of shorts; photographed countless music videos; and captured several commercials and corporate videos. She has an eye for light and composition that she is constantly refocusing in order to maintain a freshness to her imagery and tell each project's unique story in its own way.

    Many of her more current pieces can be viewed circulating through a multitude of film festivals.
