Christine Adams is a Los Angeles based cinematographer and camera operator specializing in Steadicam and gimbal. She majored in film at California State University Monterey Bay before beginning her professional career. Shortly after graduating, Christine moved to Los Angeles and immediately started working in camera rental houses. She was able to learn the equipment and gain knowledge from cinematographers and camera assistants who would frequent the shop.
Fortunately, her rental house attained one of the first Movi’s, so she was able to practice gimbal operating whenever she could. She later added Steadicam to her repertoire and has been primarily hired as a Steadicam operator on narratives, music videos, commercials, documentaries, and live music events.
Her favorite part of cinematography isn’t just making a pretty picture, it is helping to enhance a story through visuals in ways words cannot.
