My name is Aaron Leong and I've been in the industry for 13 years. I went to SF State for theatre arts with a double emphasis on performance and directing. I worked as an actor for a few years at Kaiser Permanente's Educational Theatre Programs, after which I started a production company and got into commercial work and weddings. I went back to school at the Art Institute for filmmaking, where I concentrated on cinematography and directing. I continue my education in cinematography at GCI in LA taught and mentored by ASC members.
I currently reside in Sacramento but do travel for work quite often. I own a lot of gear including a full RED Dragon package and a set of Zeiss CP.2s. I have a lot of gear for rental including wireless director's monitors, client monitors, 2-way radio systems, steadicam and much more. Please feel free to contact me regarding your productions needs.
