Society Welcomes Labisi
Born in Glen Ridge, N.J., new active
member Joseph Labisi, ASC, is a Los
Angeles- and Miami-based cinematographer and photographer working primarily
in music videos and commercials.
After working as a DJ in New York
City, Labisi decided to put his sense of
timing and mood to use, studying film editing at the Academy of Art University in San
Francisco. During his studies, he had to
shoot a project on 16mm film, and he
subsequently switched his focus to cinematography and photography. In 1999, he
won a Silver Clio for a spec commercial that
he shot and directed titled "An Instrument?" The spot was also recognized for
its artistry by the Association of Independent Commercial Producers and eventually
led to his move to Los Angeles and the
launch of his professional career.
Labisi has shot more than 700 music
videos and 100 commercials. His work has
twice been nominated by the Music Video
Production Association for best cinematography, and has been nominated for and
won numerous other accolades, including
MTV Video Music Awards.
