BIOGRAPHY

ROB FORTUNATO

Rob Fortunato is a 10 time Emmy winning Director of Photography based in the Washington, D.C. area. 

Rob began his career in 1996 as a freelance cameraman while working for the CBS 60 Minutes documentary series Ed Bradley on Assignment. He was the youngest shooter to ever work for the show at the time. Over the course of 15 years while working for CBS, he traveled to 55 countries. These trips included extensive travel within the Mideast, including five different trips to Iraq to cover the war.

In 2006, Rob developed Mozocam motions systems with partner Lee Dashiel from Osprey Production Group.  At the time, Mozocam was a revolutionary motion system using a Segway, RED Cameras and KS-8 gyros. It allowed for freestyle, limitless dolly shots and was the only way to create the floating motion effects that we have become accustomed to with the DJI gyro systems of today

He also engineered specialty live camera mounts for the musician James Taylor for the first generation GoPros. These mounts allowed the artist to have multi camera angles, even inside the guitar for his live performances at Carnegie Hall.  Over the course of four years, Rob's work for Mr. Taylor encompassed filming promotions, documentation and still work.

Rob photographed the album cover, Other Covers for the artist and directed the music video, Here Comes the Sun with James Taylor and Yo Yo MA for Sony Music.

 

Rob currently works as a Director of Photography and media consultant for agency, broadcast and Fortune 500 clients. His company offers clients full scale production crews for promotional, documentary and political production work on both small and large set designs.

Rob is also the recipient of two Peabody awards and one Edward R. Murrow award for excellence in Journalism.
