About

Academy Award nominated Luke Geissbühler   has excelled as a cinematographer in nearly all genres of filmmaking with over 25 feature films, 20 documentaries, and countless television shows, commercials, and web content to his name. His achievements include having shot Borat, the documentaries Buck and Helvetica, as well as Sir Patrick Stewarts's tour de force performance in the film Match.  He has been entrusted to photograph the most beautiful women in the world working with Victoria's Secret consistently for many years.  Luke became unexpectedly world renowned when he and his eight year old son launched a camera into astonishing near space in a homemade capsule, as seen in the short film Space Balloon.  A native New Yorker and self taught engineer, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from New York University's Tisch School before starting his career at R/GA doing special effects and tabletop photography.  Since then, he has traveled the globe many times over to orchestrate elaborate shoots for OK Go, The Muppets, Nike, Amazon, Adam McKay, Doug Liman, Barry Levinson, and Katherine Bigelow, among many others.
