Max Miles

Motion Pictures & Television / BFA

As a Cinematographer, I have learned what it takes to make a beautiful image. I have to power to shape light and move the camera in a way that makes me connect with the subject in front of me. It feels almost like a dance. I love what I do and hope to share my work with the rest of the world.

Max Miles, born Max Miles Venenciano, is a Filipino- American Cinematographer and Camera Operator from San Francisco, CA. He began his journey at the Academy of Art University, where he found his passion for camera operating.
