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 film production from the University of Southern California where he currently teaches cinematography as an adjunct professor.

When not shooting or teaching, he likes sharing time with his writer/director wife, Shilpi. They enjoy camping, traveling the world and playing music at home with their cats.

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