Claudio Manni

Director of Photography

Meet Claudio, He’s Bulldog Productions’ Director of Photography. Eleven years ago, Matt was showing Claudio a pilot he had created on a phone at an industry event. Claudio was inspired by Matt’s enthusiasm and knew from that moment this was someone he wanted to collaborate with! Claudio and Matt have since worked on countless projects together and Bulldog’s most recent TV venture FAK YAASS which broadcasts on OUTtvIf you’re on set with this gem, you’re bound to break out into laughter at least once. He also has yet to meet a dog that hasn’t stollen his heart. 

Claudio hails from the home of Neve Campbell aka Guelph Ontario. He realized his passion while he was in Peru taking stills of some locals. He lined up a moment with a child and father and his heart started racing as he photographed them. After that expereience he knew he was onto something – it eventually lead to capturing moving images. Claudio’s love of film has gotten him exceedingly far as a Director of Photography. He’s racked up some serious credits as DOP; The Amazing Race CanadaUser’s Guide to Cheating Death, The Real Housewives of Toronto and The Bachelor Season 3. He’s even done commercial work with Louis Vuitton. You’d probably never guess it just by looking at him, but Claudio’s spirit animal is a dolphin! He’s a social and outgoing guy so a dolphin makes a lot of sense “they always seem to be having a ton of fun”.
