Adam McDaid
Director of Photography
Adam McDaid is based dually in New York and Los Angeles. Adam believes cinematography is an art form that requires a unique ability to see minute details that advance elements of a story, characters, and emotion. Adam traces his innate gift back to his frequent childhood daydreaming, for which he was often chastised.
Since receiving a Masters of Fine Art in Cinematography from the American Film Institute in 2006, Adam has kept busy shooting narratives, commercials, music videos and documentaries —in all formats. Last summer, Adam had the opportunity to work under the tutelage of Janusz Kaminski as a camera intern on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. He worked on Una y Otra Vez, which recently was accepted into Slamdance 2009. Adam is a visual storyteller who looks for projects that are challenging, collaborative, and that can push the medium forward. And he has not stopped daydreaming.
