Luca Del Puppo
DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Luca Del Puppo is a cinematographer and alumnus of the American Film Institute, where he studied under Stephen Lighthill, ASC. Luca has a passion for creating meaning through lighting and composition, and believes that the photography of a film should be essential, evocative, and ultimately indistinguishable from the other elements of the visual storytelling. He is guided by William Morris’ dictum “Nothing useless can be truly beautiful.” He has photographed commercials for clients such as Levis, Facebook, Toyota, Gillette, Google, Keurig, General Mills, and Haagen Dazs. His narrative work has premiered at festivals such as Toronto, SXSW, Tribeca, and on HBO, Showtime, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. When he is not in Los Angeles or New York for work, Luca likes to spend as much time as he can in Florence, Italy, where he grew up. Luca is represented by the Gersh Agency.
