Cinematography

Apart from his work on Archipelago productions, Young regularly works as a cinematographer for other producers. Clients include: Nature, National Geographic, Nova, The American Experience, the Discovery Channel and the BBC.

While visual style is often dictated by subject matter, Young most often pursues an experiential style of cinematography. Whether filming people or animals, his goal is always to put the audience inside the story. This often involves the creative use of lighting, as well as specialized equipment and techniques such as: Steadicam, jib arms, probe lenses, aerial mounts, underwater housings, time-lapse and high-speed photography. However, on human subjects, Young often finds there is no substitute for spontaneous and intuitive handheld shooting to put the audience in the moment. 

Young is well versed in all major acquisition formats, including 16 and 35mm film, high definition video, and cutting edge cinema cameras such as the Phantom and Red Dragon. Equipment packages are available to suit the needs of any production.
