BOHDAN DOVAL  cinematographer


Director of Photography and Filmmaker

Hello! I’m Bohdan Doval, a passionate filmmaker hailing from the picturesque town of Nelson, BC. My career began in 2015, and since then I’ve immersed myself in the captivating world of visual storytelling. As a cinematographer (DP), I’ve meticulously crafted countless frames to bring the director’s vision to life. 

From gripping documentaries to dynamic tourism campaigns and action packed commercials, I love telling visual stories. 

I work for different production companies/ad agencies but I can also assemble my own team when needed. I can organize projects with professionals that specialize in their creative fields like directors, producers, editors, colourists, fpv drone operators, wardrobe & makeup.

Though I like working with teams to accomplish larger creative goals I also thrive as a solo full production filmmaker. I’m like a Swiss Army knife for your production needs. Here’s why:

Agility: When the clock is ticking, I pivot swiftly. No bureaucratic red tape—just action. Need a last-minute location change? Consider it done.

Cost-Effectiveness: Forget hefty agency fees. As a cinematographer, I offer competitive rates without compromising quality. Your budget stays lean, and your project thrives.

Creative Autonomy: As a solo filmmaker, I wear multiple hats. I’m the writer, director, and editor. The result? A cohesive vision from start to finish.

Personal Touch: When you work with me, you’re not a faceless client. You’re a collaborator. Your project matters, and I invest heart and soul.

Faster Turnaround: No layers of approvals. I execute swiftly, delivering results before the ink dries on their contracts.

Personalized Attention: When you call, I answer. No automated menus or waiting on hold. Just direct communication.

Adaptability: I adjust to your needs. Small project? No problem. Large-scale shoot? I assemble the dream team.
