Antonio Santos is a director, photographer and creative who has been in the business for over 10 years. Fresh upon his arrival in N ew York, he helped create and manage a production/creative agency with a couple of close friends. Over the course of that company’s 6 year run, Antonio wore just about every hat there is to be worn in the business. Though his job title was technically creative director, the variety of projects he oversaw allowed him to get involved in all facets of production. He’s production designed, produced, art directed, edited, photographed, and directed. He realized his true passion was for photography and direction, and as such has been freelance ever since.
He has worked on shoots with musicians, artist, and celebrities - ranging from commercial, documentary and feature films. From directing big personalities like Shaq, to producing films for high-profile events like the Met Gala, he has been well seasoned in production culture. He is a true collaborator, as he always felt that the richest creative ideas come from collaboration - when shared and diverse experiences have the opportunity to be conveyed. His reel is a testament to his incredible range. From his moody street style photography to the varied tones of his directing pieces, Antonio has been able to work across a variety of genres and styles, from contemplative documentary, to fashion to comedy.
