About Yuval

I am a Director of Photography with over 25 years of experience shooting film, tape, and
multi-digital HD formats. I have filmed large and small projects in multiple genres - feature films, TV shows, commercials, infomercials, corporate, industrial, educational and web based programs for such studios as: Disney, Warner Bros., Amblin, DreamWorks, MCA/Universal, 20th Century Fox - and for independent producers and filmmakers.

I photographed the Emmy award winning Documentary, "Survivors of the Holocaust" for Steven Spielberg and numerous TV Shows for A&E and the History Channel including: the "Dick Van Dyke Biography", Red Fox Biography", "Roman Polanski Biography”, Bob "Newhart Biography" and "David Wolper Biography".

I also filmed the visuals for the new Disneyland attractions “Star Tours” (Star wars), “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Habit Heroes."

For the last 15 years I’ve been working on an ongoing visual History project for the Archive of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

I enjoy mentoring, teaching and sharing my experience with eager students, new filmmakers and photographers. By sharing my passion and inspiring others, I am rewarded in turn. I just love seeing others experiencing the art and craft of cinematography, videography and photography.

Having worked with all the major Hollywood studios and with numerous celebrities, my experience as a cinematographer of over 30 years is an invaluable asset to anyone seeking to break into or professionally advance in a career in the industry. Most people who wish to embark upon such a career do not normally have access to experienced industry professionals where they may learn firsthand some of the “tricks of the trade.”
