Hi, my name is Luke.

I’m a cinematographer and photographer based in New York City.

I frequently work as a camera operator and 1st AC on documentary films for clients like Jigsaw, RadicalMedia, Story Syndicate and Lightbox. Projects I've contributed to have appeared on Netflix, HBO, Showtime, Prime Video and Hulu. I also frequently work as a DP on an ongoing news documentary series for Newsy, where I have filmed in over forty U.S. states and 8+ countries, often in challenging and hard-to-access environments.

Prior to New York, I lived in Washington, D.C. for five years, where I photographed the Trump era on 35mm black-and-white film. I documented many of the major political flashpoints of the last half-decade such as: the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol, the Black Lives Matter protests, the impeachment of Donald Trump, Robert Mueller's testimony to Congress, and the Charlottesville protests. My photographs have been published in The New York Times, Rolling StonePitchfork, The Wall Street Journal, Marie Claire, TIME and more.
