Finn is a photographer & director who believes in working hard and being nice. His strong cinematic approach to storytelling creates work that is visually striking and emotionally engaging. Finn describes his film and photographic methods as a raw and always improving process. He finds inspiration in old books, rural travel and everyday happenings. Forever curious, Finn is constantly exploring new ways of approaching his work with a love for happy accidents and a passion for visual storytelling, texture, type and everything in between. Recently, he has been photographing and filming global campaigns for Adidas, working with some of the top athletes competing in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, as well as filming a young group of talented Dominican baseball players in a rural pocket of the country who are becoming world-class players with modest facilities and an immeasurable love of the game.
Over the years, Finn has become an established name within the photographic and film community with an impressive client list, shooting for such brands as Adidas, Nike, Coca Cola, Mini and Budweiser. His editorial clients include Esquire, Der Spiegel Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, and Vogue.
Finn's photographs are held in the permanent collections of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection and the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro.
