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?”
