Mark De Leon is a cinematographer based out of San Diego, California working on narrative films, commercials, and branded content. He is dedicated to the pursuit of creating great visuals and enjoys working with inspiring creatives in collaborative environments. Mark served in the United States Navy for 11 years where he honed his talent as a photographer and a videographer (as collateral duties), creating high impact stories for sailors and their families.
In 2017, he decided to separate from the Navy and hit the ground hard as a cinematographer. Establishing himself quickly, Mark has landed freelance jobs from UCSD, UGG, and MTV filming creative content and advertisements. After two fruitful years of being involved in the agency landscape, Mark decided to step it up a notch and started producing and directing his own narrative films.
He enjoys being an active part in problem-solving and strategic production planning with an extremely focused, story-led approach.
