Laffrey Witbrod is a director of photography and owner operator with over ten years of freelance experience, including shots, features, and television. Recent projects includes cinematography on a feture film, work on the Jason Mraz music video 93 Million Miles, and ABC's 20/20.
Laffrey studied Cinematography at the Colorado Film School (CFS). While getting his BFA in filmmaking, he studied lighting with Ric Waite ASC. During his time at CFS he worked on many award winning short films, including The Herald, Taken, and Ropies.
Laffrey grew up in the mountains of Montana, where he was home-schooled until high school. He has always wanted to be a storyteller and now uses cinematography to tell stories visually. Between the ages of three and six, he appeared in some of the first live action videos developed especially for toddlers, produced by Bo Peep Productions. Since his mother, aunt and grandmother were developing these videos, he was exposed to many aspects of video production during these early years.
Later his family bought a home video camera and Laffrey started making his own movies. At the age of 14, he was able to purchase his own camera by filming local events and distributing them to parents.
Today he has shot in countries around the world and has experience on narrative films, documentaries, television, and music videos. To see more of Laffrey’s work check out his demo reel.
