Bruce Dorn has been a full-time professional image-maker since 1973 when he was “discovered” by the editorial staff at Conde Nast – the publishers of Architectural Digest, Glamour, Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, and Vanity Fair magazines.

Bruce was recognized as “One of the top creative college students in the nation” and started out shooting editorial fashion spreads in New York, Paris, and countless other beautiful locations around the globe. Over time, he moved from Fashion Photography into Advertising Photography and eventually from Still Photography to television commercials. He was inducted into the Directors Guild of America in 1984.

As a Director/Cameraman working in Hollywood, Bruce’s areas of specialty have been in the categories of Automotive, Fashion, Life Style, Light Comedy, Aerials, Underwater, and Digital Effects Design. Over the years, he’s earned almost all of the major industry awards.

“Common to all of my many and varied visual pursuits has been my clients’ consistent demand for imagery that is both compelling and visually attractive. With hindsight being 20/20, I’ve come to realize that it’s been my innate ability to recognize and celebrate subtle beauty that has been at the core of all of my successes as an image-maker.”
