Aaron Grasso was born and bred in southern California.
From a young age, he had a keen eye for telling stories through images. His father, a commercial cinematographer, would have in depth discussions with Aaron in regards to composition, lighting and movement. Those lessons 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 immediately recognized his talent and took him under his wing as an apprentice. Brian helped him find opportunities to assist for many well known cinematographers, so he could observe the craft from the best seat in the house. Aaron was a sponge, retaining technique and tricks which helped him build the dramatic style he is known for today. Over the years, Aaron worked his way up the ranks and has earned his reputation as an innovative artist and Cinematographer. His relentless hard work and attention to detail has earned him the honors of multiple award winning films as well as music videos for many of the worlds top artists.
Aaron takes pride in his versatility and objective approach to each project he takes on, 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 emotionally and technically.
Aaron recently completed a documentary project for RedBull and NBC, and is currently in post-production for a sci-fi/horror film with SkyBound Entertainment (The Walking Dead) and screenwriter Max Landis.
