Ali Cameron is a hands on director with a love for telling real stories about real people. Her background in photographic art and journalism tints her work with an aesthetic that is simultaneously nostalgic, genuine, creative and experimental.
Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Ali arrived in Australia in 1989 after spending her first years of life in Africa. These early years of transience and travel instilled a deep sense of curiosity, openness and an unfaltering desire to explore.
After working in Australia for a number of years, Ali dove into the fast paced world of the São Paulo film and photography industry. Working for production company Galeria Experiência, she has filmed and photographed a huge range of clients and projects including Red Bull, Nike, LG and TV show ‘Base Aliada’ for Rio based channel GNT.
She also worked as a freelance photojournalist for São Paulo’s largest newspaper Folha de São Paulo, producing work for their culture guide, magazine and daily journal. During her time in Brazil she was exposed to unique and innovative ways to approach film production amidst the South American market.
