About Michael

Michael Lockridge is a Los Angeles based Director of Photography who was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Upon discovering his fondness for shooting film in high school, he decided to attend college at Florida State University’s School of Motion Picture and Recording Arts.

Upon graduating from the University the thesis film he shot was selected to be shown at the DGA in Los Angeles.

What attracted Michael at first to film was first and foremost story, and he has taken this revere for story and used it in his application towards cinematography. Cinematography is about understanding the story and making sure that the composition and lighting are adding to or reinforcing that story, not distracting. He also has a passion in his belief that french fries, being one of the greatest foods ever invented, are best enjoyed with mustard.

Michael has worked as a Director of Photography on commercials, music videos and documentaries. He has recently shot commercials for Filler Magazine, American Express, HTC, Playstation, GM, Anthem blue Cross, and The California Dairy Industry.
Most recently he shot “Half pipe Proposal” which was a 2011 AICP winner. He is currently working on a documentary about the street art scene of Buenos Aires.
