Thanks for visiting my site! My name is Yasuaki Nakajima. I’m a freelance cinematographer living in New York. My passion is yoga, traveling and making films/videos with nice people.
I have shot over 40 music videos, a feature-length documentary, over 100 short documentaries, over 10 narrative shorts, over 100 weddings, and countless projects for promos, events, dance, fashion, red-carpet, educational, corporate, live-music, EPK, interviews and how-to-video. I own full a large-sensor HD production gear (Canon C100 Cinema Camera) + HD DSLR package (Canon 60D) + a small greenscreen studio in Bronx.
My schedule is pretty flexible since I’m a 100% freelancer.
Since I’m extremely reliable and loyal person, I’m very afraid to work with certain types of clients. Please read below and if you are these types of clients, let’s not work.
I DON’T WORK WITH CLIENTS WHO DON’T WANT TO PAY ME.
I DON’T WORK WITH CLIENTS WHO DON’T WANT TO GIVE ME A LUNCH BREAK.
I DON’T WORK WITH CLIENTS WHO DON’T WANT ME TO SLEEP AT NIGHT.
I’m a good cinematographer and also regular human being that needs food and rest.
I DON’T WORK WITH CLIENTS WHO CANCEL AT LAST MOMENT.
I’m an extremely loyal person, and commit to a project once my client confirm a shoot. Once a shoot is confirmed, I would turn down all other gigs to keep the day for the client. If the client cancel because of whatever reason, I would lose all gigs and end up not working the day.
I’m originally from Japan, moved to New York in 1996 and have worked on numerous amount of film/video/media projects as an editor first, and then did transition to cinematographer about 7 years ago. Feel free to contact me if you have a good project. Let’s film and cut!
