About Gary Orona
Film/TV Director, Photographer, Cinematographer
Hello! Thanks for checking out my Introduction.
For those who don't know me I'm a Film/TV Producer/Director and Cinematographer whose roots began in Photography. I'm also a devout outdoor wilderness explorer.
I don't like to toot my own horn but so you know I've got some credentials here's a quick sense of what I've done in the past:
I'm classically trained and was first published at age 19 (in1984) as photographer for the Ventura, California "Star Free Press".
I've since created, produced, directed and photographed a whole bunch of TV shows and movies for HBO/Cinemax, DirecTV, Fox TV, USA Channel, British Sky, International Broadcast, PPV, VOD, and Home Video Worldwide.
I also won "Best Picture" in the Fantasy genre category for my feature film "Trance" at the 2002 New York Independent International Film Festival.
I've owned and used just about every format and camera know to mankind... this is stated with absolute humility!
Now I shoot spirit infused landscapes and strong, empowered women in primal settings and I call all of this OronaScapes.
