    About me

    Gelareh is an Iranian-American Cinematographer and Lighting Designer. She has spent early years of her career assisting major award-winning directors and that’s where she picked an interest for theatrical lighting design and cinematography.

    Since 2004 she has worked as an active cinematographer and has worked on many Narrative and Documentary projects. Earlier in her career Gelareh was trained to shoot on 35mm and 16mm film, naturally her more recent projects are mostly shot digital.

    In the meanwhile, Gelareh graduated from UCLA with MFA in Lighting Design where she was trained by Tony Award Winning Lighting Designer Neil Jampolis. She has designed lighting for major theater productions such as The Tragedy of Carmen for LA Opera.

    In 2018 she graduated from UCLA with her second MFA in Cinematography. Today Gelareh lives in Los Angeles, California.
