Bruce Francis Cole is a cinematographer who lives in both NY and LA and works globally. Early in his childhood he was an exceptional student in the form of visual art. Raised in the inner-city, his art carried him to places beyond his immediate surroundings. After traveling around America working for non-profit social justice programs and inspired by the late Haskell Wexler, he decided to explore film as an art form. Eventually after studying cinematography at both UNCSA (David Gordon Green, Jeff Nichols) and The American Film Institute, he worked his way up from electrician to gaffer and eventually DP.
