Will Stewart is a Gold ADDY Award winning Director of Photography.
He got his start in video production as the Creative Director of a marketing agency. After helping build the camera department of the agency, he discovered that the best way to tell a story was through video. It was then that he pursued his calling as a filmmaker.
He eventually worked his way up to be the cinematographer on projects for Michelin, BMW, U.S. Olympic Team, and many others.
His passion is painting a story through cinematic lighting. His thoughtful approach to lighting sets him apart from his contemporaries and brings agencies and Directors to him.
In 2013 he started a video production company in Greenville, SC called 9/8 Central. Through that company he heads the camera department and is the Producer for all of their projects.
After establishing himself as a Director of Photography in the commercial world, he turned his attention to narrative work. In the last 3 years, he has served as the Director of Photography for shorts, a feature-lengthed web series, and a TV show pilot.
His most recent short was “Shelter County” which won 4 film festivals.
Will lives in Greenville, SC, with his wife and newborn daughter, Ella. When he’s not on set, you can most likely find him at a coffee shop, sipping on a latte and planning his next project.
