As the Director of Photography of choice for many of the most reputable businesses, institutions, and venues on the Monterey Peninsula, Michael Buffo prides himself on preserving our region’s arts, culture, and entertainment. He strives to show up with as much generosity as the client can handle with multiple camera systems to choose from, providing unexpected wireless HD monitoring solutions, and delivering much more than originally ordered.
Michael Buffo started out as a friend, and transitioned into a videographer shooting a documentary inside the Salinas Valley Prison for our group, The Freedom Within Prison Project. I was impressed with his contractual acumen, the ease at which he guided us into the development of a 1 minute commercial, a 5-minute home page video, and a 10 minute mini-documentary. His camera operation in a sensitive environment, a level 4 state prison, Michael being a “one-man crew”, and coaching us through the filmenvisioning process as well as his interviewing of the warden was excellent. I felt at ease and trusted his decisions in obtaining the shots we needed for our film, and was appreciative that his respect and care led our inmates to feel welcomed and at ease during the filming.
