Anthony C. Kuhnz

Anthony enjoys challenging himself to continually experiment and evolve, using cinematography to effectively enhance story, theme and character in the magical way only it can.
Anthony earned a BA in film at Northwestern and an MFA in cinematography from the University of Southern California where he met his writer/director wife, Shilpi. Together they enjoy camping, traveling the world and playing guitar at home with their cats.

Professional cinema image-taking should integrate, serve, interest, and enhance the story.” Haskell Wexler
