AJ de Angelo
Director of Photography
Location: New York, USA
My name is AJ DeAngelo. I'm a camera operator for many different reality TV shows. When I'm not working on some tropical island shooting the the latest and greatest real estate shows for HGTV - Caribbean Life & Beachfront Bargain Hunt or in NYC shooting fashion makeovers from TLC's What Not To Wear, I can be found digging my toes into the soft & white sands of the Jersey Shore. Right on the edge of the surf, catching salt water on my face in the arms of a glowing sunrise or sunset photoshoot.
What I love shooting the most are vibrant color-rich ocean & waterfront scenes. With an extreme enthusiasm for filming beachfront projects, if i'm not in the water even just a little up to my knees getting wet, then i'm not 110% satisfied with my work! My inspiration comes from home. As a Jersey Shore native, I lived and worked on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights. It was right there on the Seaside Height's Boardwalk 'spin the wheel' games of chance, facing straight out onto the sun-gleaming ocean & endless flood of wild, sunburnt tourists, combined with the sounds of rickety roller-coasters & the hum and buzz of glowing carnival lights, where the magic first amazed and next inspired me to become the camera man that I am today.
Capturing beautiful scenes is my passion. But what really does it for me is the inner serenity and gratitude I feel from you... for letting me fill your heart and imagination with my vibrant images and colorful visions.
