bio

Jeff Turick has been visually telling award-winning stories for over twenty years. Graduating from Penn State University with a degree in Architecture and an emphasis in Computer Animation, he immediately chose to apply his understanding of design, lighting, and composition to the cinematic arts.


As a director/DoP, Jeff’s debut feature film Cut Up won the 1994 LA Filmmaker Award and his 2002 short Webcam premiered in the Sundance Channel’s Buzz Cuts Series. Allison (which he also lensed), won the Chapter 4 Selection in Canon’s The Story Beyond The Still contest created by photographer Vincent Laforet and judged by such notables as Star Wars producer Rick McCallum and Titanic cinematographer Russell Carpenter. The film premiered alongside the other chapter winners at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival to a standing-room-only crowd.


Despite his early interest in writing and directing, Jeff’s passion will always remain fixated on cinematography. His career has taken him around the world from the bayous of New Orleans to the busy streets of Delhi and Tokyo. His work is clear evidence of his constant love for seeking out the perfect frame and capturing the nuances and emotions of each narrative moment.


Now residing just outside New York City, he continues to seek new ways to challenge his cinematic sensitivities, and looks forward to using his Canon C300 Mark II and 4K aerial drone on a host of commercials, documentaries, music videos and more.
