Umpornpol Yugala (Ping): Cinematographer


Ping studied film production at the San Francisco Academy of Art and probably holds the distinction of taking the longest time to graduate from there.  He has worked as cinematographer on many student films, and that adds up to A LOT of experience for the reason just mentioned in the previous sentence.  Anyway, besides that dubious distinction, he is also appreciated for his beautiful lighting.  He even went so far as to tell one director, “let me know when you’re ready.  If you don’t tell me to stop, I’ll just keep adjusting the light forever”.  When he isn’t adjusting lights, Ping enjoys hanging out with his girlfriend.
