Clare Major


Public bio

As a freelance Cinematographer/DP and field producer, I have shot for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Discovery Channel, and numerous independent documentaries and web series. 

Based in the Bay Area, I've shot in Senegal, Liberia, Azerbaijan, the Philippines, Haiti, Spain, Switzerland, and all around the USA. My half-hour thesis film at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, "Feast and Sacrifice," filmed in my former Peace Corps host village in Senegal, won a Student Emmy and was a national finalist in the Student Academy Awards.
