Director of Photography
Kaayla Whachell is a cinematographer from Vancouver, Canada and an associate member of the Canadian Society of Cinematographers. Her first feature film, Portraits from a Fire, directed by Trevor Mack, went on to win her Best Cinematography at the 2022 Leo Awards. Whether it be a narrative film or commercial, Kaayla believes that the cinematography must accurately showcase the individuals depicted on screen.

She strives to produce a diverse film set for all people to thrive and create within.
