Dylan Priest


Dylan Priest is a Cinematographer and lifestyle photographer in Seattle, Washington. He has a decade’s worth of experience in the commercial photography industry, shooting both in studio and on location.

Dylan is known for his ability to use light and composition to convey mood and emotion. His work has a natural and relaxed feel with a strong sense of narrative. He likes to collaborate with his clients to develop their visions and tell their stories.

When he is not behind a camera (which is not often), Dylan can be found riding his bike long distances, reading history books with a glass of whiskey, or traveling the world with his wife.

    Real Change

Dylan is a fantastic and dynamic collaborator. He is a talented photographer and brings his eye for emotion and composition to his directorial video work as well. In addition to creating beautiful work, he is easy to work with, a good communicator, and a pleasure to have on set. It is clear he cares about the work and makes suggestions for ways to improve process and the creative throughout a project. My team and myself love working with him.

Senior Producer, C+C

Dylan's videos for our nonprofit are wonderful. He worked to understand our needs and vision, and created videos that exceeded our expectations. He worked to get the shots we needed, edited beautiful videos meeting our requirements, and the final products perfectly capture the information and feeling we were looking for.

Development Director,
Real Change Homeless Empowerment Project

Dylan was such a joy to work with. He was quick to respond, extremely organized and asked for all information up front. We're located in Indianapolis and needed someone in Seattle to help us with an offsite job. Dylan is extremely reliable and flexible. Even with the project was over, he didn't stop until the videos were perfect (which only took two versions.) We're very pleased with the finished product. Thank you, Dylan!
