“For me it’s the best of both worlds... Cinematography is a perfect combination of doing something technical and artistic. Working with lights and camera gear and finding the right tools for the project is a big joy for me. I love nerding out on gear. The best part of it is the different technical tools you can use to create the exact look you want for a project,” explains Gohr.
“The artistic part of cinematography is a soulful experience and it’s why I started doing cinematography. I love creating a visual story, from the colors to the camera movements to the framing and locations. All of that makes it an amazing creative process.”
