David has the eye of a painter, the calm mindset of a Zen master, and the ability of a chameleon to adapt visual styles to story needs. A photographer from the age of fifteen, he shot miles of film, one frame at a time, before he ever touched a movie camera. David was drawn to film through intense interests in many diverse art forms, and the idea that only film brings them all together so immediately and so well. Moody, emotional, atmospheric and uplifting images are hallmarks of the Brower style. To merge art and technology, film or digital, in a way that evokes a response is his stock in trade. Laughter, tears, fear or longing; your story brought to life in moving images.

On the set
David Brower is a consummate professional who brings years of experience to each of his projects. In fact, just having David on set is comforting. He has a master's eye for capturing beauty and is calm, cool, and collected while solving inevitable production challenges. He has a way of bringing out the best in his crew and ultimately the project as a whole. Every project I have worked on with David has been a better experience because he was on it.

I can tell you that David is a great shooter -- his knowledge, creativity, and professionalism make him an asset to any production. But you should really check out his work -- if a picture is worth a thousand words, one of David's movies is worth a million.

David Brower is the go-to DP when there's no room for error. He possesses a vast knowledge of his craft and also consistently delivers gorgeous photography. But what sets David apart is attitude. For the past five years, David Brower has collaborated with me on both commercial projects and documentaries. There is no dearth of qualified DPs where I reside in California. I work with David not only because of his extraordinary talent and experience, but also because he always brings the highest degree of professionalism to any shoot.

In the best of situations, the Director and Cinematographer work in collaboration, bringing together their unique ideas to determine and then create the visual feel of a project. This is exactly what I experienced working with David on my film, "Transfers." Beyond his technical skill and level of experience, David brings with him a wealth of creativity and a deep understanding of visual storytelling. I cannot overstate what a pleasure it was working with him.
