Adrian Musto
Director of Photography


About me

Today more than ever, visual media is shaping perceptions.

I have been fascinated with film and video for as long as I can remember and I would love to help you tell your story.

I am a Director of Photography based in London, England. I have more than 15 years of experience working on documentary, film, TV and corporate projects. Growing up in a house full of cameras, photography and filmmaking have always run in my blood.

I've worked in very diverse environments - from remote towns in Alaska and the Arctic Circle via busy cities like London and New York to abandoned places like Chernobyl and the Nevada desert. I love working on documentaries, factual TV and emotional film. I'm comfortable working in controlled conditions as well fast paced run-and-gun style productions.

I shoot across a wide range of digital cinema cameras and currently own a RED Dragon-X, RED Komodo and Sony FS7.

I have a clean UK driving license and I am a US I-Visa holder (Expires 2023) and an A2 CofC certified drone operator. I also have a current valid UK press card.
