“I Am Cinema” is a professional photography and cinematography studio located in Reedsburg, WI. This is in Sauk County, which is near Wisconsin Dells, Devils Lake, and Baraboo, and about 45 minutes from Madison.
My name is Nathan Grey. I’m a Wisconsin Native who’s lived in various places and states, including 4 years in New Orleans, and 5 years in Southeast Florida, by West Palm Beach. Regardless of where I’ve lived or traveled, my heart has always called me back home to this area. I specifically choose to open my two studios (I Am Cinema & Kaizen Tactical Combatives) in Reedsburg, due to it’s location to Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue. I’ve been an active sponsor and volunteer for them since early 2006. When I was first given the opportunity to work with these amazing Tigers and Lions, there was no going back in mind. I had found my happy place.
After years and years of working in full feature films, TV shows, and commercials, I found myself as a photographer and cinematographer behind the lens. I love this profession, as it doesn’t even feel like work. I get to work with actors, musicians, models, and countless varieties of people and businesses sharing my love and skill in photography and videography.
The last large production I worked on prior to returning to Wisconsin, was a comedic drama series called “In Sanity, Florida” by See~Worthy films. This series featured Burt Reynolds as a fictional version of himself, and followed the coming of age story of a young girl wanting to break out of the normal, to follow her passion as a singer. This was the second production I worked on as the Director of Photography for Marc and Shawnee of See~Worthy films.
My Reedsburg Studio is massive, around 5,000 sq ft with 13 ft ceilings. I started my studio with virtually no equipment, and absolutely no money. Over the years my reputation grew as did the number of clients I worked with, and the size of my productions. I made the choice with each production, to re-invest in my company, and continue building my arsenal of professional cameras, lenses, lighting kits, audio equipment, tripods, jibs, drones, and steadicams, etc. My studio is now equipped with over $30,000 worth of photography and video gear. This now allows me to offer truly professional packages for my clients, and bring to them the quality and versatility of a small Hollywood Production Studio.
While many people claim to be professional photographers or cinematographers because they bought a camera and can take a properly exposed shot in focus, most of them don’t understand the first thing about being a professional. I understand though… I was once there myself. We all start somewhere. I did my share of countless free productions, photo shoots, and videos. My reputation has now been established and I know the value of what I offer both with technical skill and creative ambition. I will never let anyone outwork or outperform me, and I strive to offer my clients more features, higher quality, and the best creative passion than anyone in my area can compare to.
