About Justin Bastien
Whether it's diving among schools of exotic fish off the coast of Tanzania, struggling through the surf in Tahiti, or clinging to the towering walls of Yosemite Valley, Justin Bastien does it all…with a camera in hand. Pushing the limits to get the perfect shot in overwhelming conditions is second nature to Justin. In other words, he's the guy you call when looking to make great pictures in impossible situations.
With extensive experience working as a DP on commercial sets, combining stills with motion is Justin's strong suit. He's comfortable navigating his way around a production and has seemingly limitless capabilities—from shooting motion to capturing stills to jumping in front of the lens as talent, he can do it all. Regardless of his role, Justin actively engages the viewer and pulls them right alongside him for the ride of their lives.
Modest to the core, Justin couldn't bear to write his own bio so he asked me to brag on his behalf. Justin's contagious enthusiasm and appetite for excitement will make you want to be his friend. His mellow core, creative vision and technical expertise will make you want to be his client.
