About Les Gaddis

Les Gaddis has had a passion for cinematography since the age of 12, when he started working as an event camera operator for his family’s video business in New Orleans, Louisiana. With a natural progression and growing appreciation for the arts he pursued a Business Management and Music degree with a minor in Concert Piano at Dillard. In the midst of Hurricane Katrina’s furry, his family moved to Dallas, Texas. Les re-energized his passion for film and became professionally trained in cinematography at the Art Institute of Dallas, receiving his Associate in Video Production in 2009. Les has worked for two international television shows, produced 1 feature film, over 20 short films, 13 music videos, 20 commercials and promotional videos, and covered over 500 events. While continually growing in his craft educationally and in experience, Les is expanding his portfolio as a Director of Photography.
