Aaron Grasso was born and bred in southern California.
From a young age, he had a keen eye for visual storytelling. His father, a commercial cinematographer, would speak with his son about photography, composition, lighting and movement through space. Those talks laid the groundwork for the approach Aaron takes in his art today.
Early in his career, he forged a relationship with Director and Cinematographer, Brain Lazzaro, who took him under his wing as an apprentice. He searched for any opportunity to assist reputable cinematographers in order to observe the craft from the best seat in the house. Aaron was a sponge, retaining technique and tricks which have inspired much of the dramatic style seen in his films today. Hard work and attention to detail has earned him the honors of multiple award winning films and music videos for many of the worlds' top artists and celebrities.
Aaron believes in having a truly objective approach to each project, allowing the stories to inspire the worlds around them. He has a desire to create films that make us think and feel, that push boundaries, both technically and emotionally.
