Filmmaker and photographer based in Brooklyn, NY with an interest for telling stories about underground subcultures, the arts, human rights, social justice, and personal triumphs.
Austin Ampeloquio is a filmmaker and photographer based in Brooklyn, NY.
He received his undergraduate degree at Temple University with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the Klein College of Media and Communication in 2018.
In 2019, his short video about a mother and her journey to sobriety for Covering Addiction: 1217 was recognized as a finalist for Best Online Videography at the Society of Professional Journalists, Region I, Mark of Excellence Awards.
Austin was the personal documentarian and social media content creator for IBF World Champion boxer, Tevin Farmer, from June of 2019 up until March 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic hit the United States. During his time with Farmer, Austin created the YouTube docuseries 'NO DAYS OFF' which captured Farmer's training camps and championship fights.
Given the sparse amount of sporting events taking place due to the height of the pandemic, Austin pivoted into creative and editorial content for different brands, musical artists, athletes, and models to sustain and grow his skills behind the camera. During this time, Austin gained experience on music video sets, modeling-agency photo shoots, and editorial video productions for i-D.
Most recently, Austin published his first photography zine, 'make ur friends models' and continues to shoot creative photography for different clients. With his expansion of different photographic techniques from shooting stills over the past two years, Austin is looking to get back into documentary style filmmaking to tell personal, human-interest stories with a more refined eye.
