I’m Kristina Willemse, an award-winning Director Of Photography with over 12 years of experience in the industry.  Since the beginning, my passion has been routed in the art of creating dynamic images; starting out as camera operator on specialty equipment such as jibs, robo heads, go pros, and Flyline cable cameras.

This career has led me to work with many creative and incredible partners, with work featured on Amazon Prime, HBO, ABC, Food Network, award-winning websites and branded content. In my off-hours, I also create videos for North Beach Citizens, a non-profit serving homeless citizens of San Francisco, as well as the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.
