He continues to make narrative and documentary films primarily using the RED cameras in his arsenal.

During his off time he seeks action, energy and purpose through military led endurance events, which keeps him ready for production field work of any kind. Keeping him in line are his wife, four kids and golden retriever.

Keaton Bowlby

CINEMATOGRAPHER

Residing on the west coast but always following the next adventure, moving cameras with speed is the name of the game. Russian arm, camera car, drone - you name it, Keaton straps a camera to it with a unique crew of young cinematographers. If the tool he needs isn’t around, he will make it, regardless of the complexity. Come join him in paradise, or as most know it, Lake Tahoe, for a backcountry powder day or go for a summertime boar cruise. Always push forward and always have fun.
