Dallas, Texas – Managing Director of Photography – Nate Galluppi

About Nate

  • What cameras and equipment have you worked with the most?

If a certain camera has the specs the client needs, then that is the one I will shoot on. I’m not tied to any specific camera brand, though each has its own list of pros and cons. For several years, I have worked with the Canon C300 and C300 Mkii and then later to the Sony F5 and 55s as my main go-to camera’s in my kit. However, I love working with all types of cameras and have been trained by AbelCine on the Arri Alexa Mini as well as the entire lineup from RED.  A few years ago I upgraded to the Sony Fx9 and an FX3 as a secondary camera that I have with me at all times. I’m a total gear nut, and I can talk about this all day!

  • Do you specialize in a specific shoot style?

I would consider myself a video swiss army knife. I could specialize in one specific shooting style, but I get to have fun and cover a variety of shooting styles while shooting for GTT. I have shot several years of home renovation and docu-reality type of shoots, so if you had to pin me to something, that would be up there. But I do love having the opportunity and time to craft a look for an interview for a sports feature/documentary. The creative juices that flow on those types of sets are unmatched.

  • Do you have a favorite project you’ve worked on?

I had the opportunity to Produce/DP a character reel and then DP the Sizzle Reel for a potential reality show in Austin, TX. This gave me the ability to flex my wings as a DP and a shooter, with multiple GTT shooters working under my guidance, to really craft the look and feel of what this show could become. I was given complete creative control on set, and the producers that came into work with me on the sizzle reel respected that and respected the relationship that I had built with the talent before they were on board the project. My favorite part was having the trust of people that I’ve never worked with before, to let me do what I do best and tell a great story that is visually appealing.

Chip and Joanna Gaines Shoot

I don’t even know where to start… I’ve never heard our EP so happy on a field shoot and everything seemed to have gone even better than planned. The team was incredible!! We feel so lucky to have had them for this one as their knowledge of Waco was specifically helpful and they were quick and efficient (despite the poor weather). We all feel that this shoot set the precedent for all future In The Room shoots. We are ingesting all of the footage from the hard drive now and I can’t wait to see all of it ?

Jordan + Nate

Nate and Jordan were great. On-time, professional, fully prepared and rolled with the punches on a, at times, unpredictable shoot. Would highly recommend them again.

Jordan Woods

Everything went really well, and the crew was a big help when a team member had a little fender bender at the shoot, and they were able to duct tape his bumper so he could drive back to the airport. He was super appreciative of all their help!
