About

Jerry has more than 30 years experience as a professional Director of Photography of documentaries, television commercials, television series and feature motion pictures in Hollywood and around the world. He began his career in the film industry at the age of four as an actor at MGM. During his ten-year acting career, he worked with such renowned directors as Cecil B. DeMille, Arthur Penn and Alfred Hitchcock. It was during this time that he became interested in film and photography. While acting in “The Buccaneer” with Yul Brenner (also a master photographer), Yul took an interest in Jerry and along with the camera department at Paramount Studios, personally tutored him in the art of photography. This was the beginning of Jerry’s interest in a “behind the camera” career.

He went on to graduate from the U.S.C. School of Cinema and began his career as a Producer/Director/Cinematographer of television documentaries for the U.S. Navy and later, the NBC affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona. All of this work was shot and edited on film.

As his career evolved, he moved to Hollywood and served as the Director/Cinematographer for numerous television commercials. In addition, he was the Director of Photography for more than 1000 national and international large budget commercials for such clients as Apple Computer, Ford Motor Company, Coca Cola, Budweiser, Levi’s, American Express, Mercedes, General Motors and United Airlines; working with such talent as Ridley Scott, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jerry Seinfeld (American Express commercial series). In addition to his commercial work, Jerry was Director of Photography for television films, Movies of the Week, television series and feature films. Among them were the ABC series “thirtysomething” and the feature motion picture “Wilder Napalm”, starring Debra Winger and Dennis Quaid.
