We may have just recently found out that the chicken came before the egg, but what is first in the media world: does being good with film make you a good photographer, or do you first need a knack for photography to translate it into film?

Danilo Parra (nb: not the Ecuadorian singer) can do both, and does both better than most. His photographic work is based in portraiture, and uses lighting as his main compositional tool. Over his career his style has varied vastly, as you can see through some of the pictures in the above gallery.

Parra is now focusing his knowledge and understanding of light and composition on the film world with his work appearing in The Rooftoop Film Festival, The New York International Latino Film Festival, The National Arts Club of New York and the Pop Montreal Festival. He currently works with Vice as an editor and filmographer on their documentary shorts, as well as the Guardian as a producer. He also makes music videos, most notably some stuff for The Black Lips (below). Plus he still 'dabbles' in photography. And can you believe that this guy is only 25-years-old? Right.

More (including his video reels) at danilop.com, or there is also a large collection of his older work at usefilm.com.

I love it too. His understanding of light and contours (and ladies' bottoms) is phenomenal.
