Tavis Pinnington

Video Artist

Originally from the suburbs of Hobart, Tavis Pinnington relocated to Melbourne in 2013 to study a Bachelor of Film and Television at Swinburne University and pursue a career in filmmaking. After completion, Tavis worked around Melbourne as a camera assistant and in the lighting department for a few years before breaking into cinematography. His cinematography work includes a broad range of areas across commercial and music videos but as of late, has started to focus his areas into narrative and documentary form.

Being of mixed heritage (Filippino/Australian), Tavis actively pursues projects that offer a diverse range of storytelling both in front of and behind the camera, aiming to bring more minority stories to a bigger audience.
