Yoni Shrira is a professional photographer and cinematographer working in Los Angeles. Currently he is finishing his graduate degree at the American Film Institute with an MFA in Cinematography. Before his pursuit in motion picture filmmaking, his love for visual storytelling began when his curiosity led him to enroll in a black and white analog photography class while living in New York City. He has been shooting primarily black and white film ever since. It is through the analog film process that he too has found a connection to his subjects long after the shutter is released.
