Hi, I'm Thaïs. I'm a director of photography from Brazil based in Los Angeles, CA.
I'm a horror film buff, film history aficionado, and a Classic Hollywood fan.
I received my MFA in Cinematography from the American Film Institute Conservatory in 2016 - the reason why I came to LA -, and started to work in the industry here around that time - the reason why I never left.
I'm passionate about creating images in all levels - I was a storyboard artist, commercial photographer, film loader and camera assistant before fully transitioning into cinematography.
I'm also interested in both technical and creative aspects of filmmaking: having worked for Leica Camera in Brazil, Zeiss Cinema Lenses, and now-a-days I'm with Kodak Motion Picture.
My cinematography work spams from multiple short and long-form and made for TV documentaries in South America to recent music videos and narrative in the US.
My main goal in a project is translating into images the stories that are trusted to me. Hence why I love the community work that filmmaking allows.
