Craig Johnson

I am a documentary filmmaker and Emmy award winning producer working in the southwestern United States and beyond. I strive to create compelling and novel work and I am the recipient of the Ansel Adams Award for Videography for my work with the Sierra Club. I’m also an FAA Licensed Drone Pilot.

My summers working as a wildland firefighter awarded me a strong work ethic that compliments my technical abilities as a director of photography, visual journalist and field producer. My proficiency in Spanish is a useful tool on productions in the southwest and I am experienced in reporting and filming in the borderlands.

I have worked for television and news programs in Arizona and overseas including Arizona PBS and i24News in the Middle East. I’ve also independently produced and shot countless videos across the state and country for non-profits, corporations, news outlets and many more.

I have a passion for documentary work that explores the connection between people and their natural environment. I also have a diverse set of skills and professional equipment to make your project a success, whether it be news and event coverage, a storytelling project, branded corporate content or an artistic endeavor.

I look forward to working with you on your next production. Please inquire to learn more about my 4k Canon cinema camera package with all your stabilization, audio and lighting needs.
