Director of Photography/Lighting Director/Gaffer

David Navarro

I decided not to waste money on film school, therefore, I purchased a 5 ton truck and several thousand dollars worth of grip, lighting and electric equipment whereby I created my own curriculum.  Over the years, I worked hard to become a recognized CLT, a proud member of IATSE Local 728 – Hollywood Set Lighting Technicians and an aspiring Cinematographer.  For the past ten years, I have built a successful company as an independent sole Owner/Operator of “Dream Lighting”,  a provider of grip, lighting and electric equipment in the greater Los Angeles area.

With a resume of well over 400 projects ranging from music videos, commercials, pilots and feature films, I have had the opportunity to light such notables as: Anthony Hopkins, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock. Illeana Douglas, Jason Biggs, Justine Bateman, Robert Patrick, Jane Lynch and Lauren Holly. In addition I have had the pleasure to light musical artists such as: Miley Cyrus, Adele, Leona Lewis, and Dave Navarro.

My most recent project released nationally was Black Waters of Echo’s Pond,  and projects currently on air are: Sports Science on ESPN, Fact or Faked [Paranormal Investigators] on Syfy and Car Warriors on the Speed Channel.
