Biography 

David Fortney is an award-winning cinematographer whose footage is distributed by THE IMAGE BANK, and has been seen in hundreds of national and international televisions spots, shows and specials. He often functions as director, cinematographer and editor, combining supreme artistic skills with the technical expertise needed to develop and extend the current state-of-the-art in cinematography. His PBS Documentary on "Denali, Alaska's Great Wilderness", THE LIVING EDENS, has won an EMMY AWARD for outstanding individual achievement in Cinematography.

His full length video album, "Lightdance", with music by Santana, explores patterns of color, light and form found in nature along with a special filming technique that transports the viewer over surreal landscapes.

His visual music album EARTHSCAPES features music by Vangelis and Pactrick O'Hearn. It utilizes a specially designed technology that allows the camera to pan the landscapes while filming in time lapse.

The following review of EARTHSCAPES is representative of what many people say about David Fortney's work:

"Sheer cinematic genius... there simply is no one alive with a better eye for beauty...clearly at the pinnacle of its genre." -P.J.Birosik, National Music & Video Reviewer
