Ricardo Birnbaum

Director of Photography in New York, NY, USA
Hi I’m Ricardo 🙂

I love light and I love people. I love capturing the human face. I love the motion that is captured in a movie camera. As a storyteller I want a story beyond a beautiful image. I like abstraction and improvisation. I like to vary my lighting setup depending on story, taping into instinct. I work to see your surprise at the unveiled image... The opening of possibility in your eyes.

Don't count the days, make the days count. Muhammad Ali
