JOHN PAGET

Documentary Filmmaker | Director of Photography

John Paget has worked as a documentary filmmaker and freelance director of photography since 1992. He has shot and directed several award-winning
and nationally broadcast feature documentaries on such iconic American topics as Route 66, Elvis Impersonators and Alcatraz Prison.

Paget’s exceptional storytelling instincts and craftsman-like approach to cinematography have put him in high demand as a freelance director of photography; he’s traveled worldwide to produce commissioned projects for international non-profits, TV networks, and Fortune 500 companies.

Originally from Olympia, Washington, Paget now lives in Buffalo, New York. He’s made several celebrated short films about Buffalo (This Place Matters, Buffalo: America’s Best Designed City) that have captured and helped catalyze the city’s revitalization.

Paget recently founded First+Main Films, a creative studio dedicated to telling stories about cities, towns and neighborhoods through films that foster civic pride, build community and spark imagination. Visit firstmainfilms.com to learn more.
