John Hudak grew up in Northeast Pennsylvania and after getting an undergraduate degree in painting he attended graduate school at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. His main concentration was cinematography with editing as a second interest. He began working in film as an assistant cameraman on feature shoots in his hometown. John's career as a director of photography began when he shot his first feature length film, "REFLECTIONS," at the age of 21 in Scranton, PA.
His love of painting has influenced his eye for cinematography, using the baroque period as an inspiration and reference. John relocated to New York City in 2006 and he continues to focus on his crest as a DP. He has traveled nationally and internationally to photograph narratives, music videos, and documentaries and is always ready to take on interesting projects.
