First inspired by the character 'Animal' on Lou Grant, and later on, fine art photographer, Peter Lik, professional photographer Louis Halcyon Simmons first picked up the camera at age 6. From then his eye developed into something amazing with his everlasting visuals of cinematography that capture life, both past and present.
Louis’ adventure into both photography and aerial cinematography stemmed from his background in production. While in Los Angeles, Louis’ intentions to pitch his high def motion picture idea called for another means of advertising. After researching various media sources, Louis landed with stock footage agency, Footagebank.com, immediately after graduating film school at The Los Angeles Film School in 2001.
“My passion comes from the heart, as I love to share images and visuals with the world,” explains Louis. “It is an exciting feeling when you are able to introduce yourself to the public and have them immediately see my vision.”
Louis has plenty on his plate to keep him busy. Being a professional aerial cinematographer, Louis often finds himself in different parts of the country, pairing music and aerial footage together, creating whole new entities.
While holding down these projects, Louis has plans to launch another project with his aerial footage called, 'Murals by Halcyon' by using single framed high definition images and transferring them to life size murals for corporate lobbies.
