Bruce Cole is an American cinematographer who lives in both NY and LA and works globally. Early in his childhood he was an exceptional student in the form of visual art. Raised in the inner-city, his art carried him to places beyond his immediate surroundings. After traveling around America working for a few non-profit social justice programs in his teens, he began searching for a bigger platform for social change. Eventually after studying cinematography at both NCSA and AFI, he began his career as a DP.
