Duncan’s childhood was spent between Nova Scotia, Canada and Ojai, California, in a fractured, but loving family of practicing Buddhists in the Tibetan lineage. At 18, he found his way to New York City, where he lived many lives before discovering film through his brother’s studies as a cinematographer. Drawing inspiration from poignant human experiences – from the auspicious to the beautiful to the haunting – Duncan is convinced that the craft of filmmaking is also the science of empathy. His work poetically transcends genres within both traditional and more artistically elevated storytelling styles, making him a unique candidate for nearly every category, from luxury & fashion, to sports, lifestyle, cars and beyond. When not shooting, you can find Duncan with his partner, Sheila, and their two sons, Lucius & June, surfing, gardening, home-building and exploring in the endless California sun.
