Hey there, I’m Bud Simpson. I’m a director of photography working (and playing) in ATL.

But my work takes me all over the world.

I’ve gained an international reputation for crafting impactful moving images.

Ever since I was a kid I loved the movies. To this day, I’m still absolutely swept away by BIG stories told with BIG images and BIG sound.

I take that same passion for larger than life images to work everyday.


For me, it’s about stretching the medium as far as it’ll go. I’m always wondering, “How can I photograph this in a way that’ll make it unforgettable?”
