Austin Stoecklein is a 26 year old freelance Director/DP, currently living in his home town of Chino, which is a small cow-town in Southern California, an hour outside of Los Angeles.

He got his start very early on, shooting his first national TV commercial at 21 years old. He has since lensed commercials and branded content for Apple, Visa, Subaru, Toyota, Citi Bank, Jack Daniels, Patron, Don Julio, EA Sports, and The Art Institutes.

He seeks to make films that show real life, with real human emotions that we all feel on a daily basis. Austin's work is truly genuine - a character trait that is often missing from the overflow of content we see everyday. 

Austin recently received an Emmy award for KCET's recent documentary "Third LA", in which he served as the cinematographer.
