Steve McCord Director of Photography

Steve McCord is a queer Director of Photography based in Brooklyn, NY.

Originally from East Africa, McCord found film as a way to connect two worlds: being a white kid in Kenya and visiting the U.S. as the white kid from Kenya. He has hitchhiked around Morocco, been deported from Vietnam, and run a marathon around a volcano in Patagonia.

His art is part of MOMA's permanent collection, was awarded Best Cinematography for Commercials by the AICP in 2024, and is a Young Guns Finalist.

He also owns a peanut butter company called The Family Nut.
