Eli Arenson is a LA based DP whose work has been praised for its strong compositions and raw subversive esthetic.
He started his career as a military photojournalist before shifting his skills of embellishing coarse reality into commercial and narrative films. Often shooting on motion picture film, his instinctive camerawork has garnered the attention of artists such as A$AP Rocky and Karl Lagerfeld. He recently wrapped Valdimar Jóhannsson's Icelandic supernatural drama LAMB starring Noomi Rapace and written by the poet Sjón.
Eli believes in cinematography that is simple and graceful - his visual approach always begins from the minds of the characters. The world as perceived through their eyes.
