Working as a Director of Photography within the world of professional sports has been an unexpected, but very welcome stop along the journey for Alysha Galbreath. Having the pleasure of creating with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment and the successful NBA franchise, the Toronto Raptors and NBA TV Canada, Alysha applies the artful look of film to what is typically a television dominated realm of professional sports content.
Beginning her career in the newsroom, Alysha quickly found her love of shooting and being on set outweighed the chaos and craziness of the control room. Graduating from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, University of Calgary and supplementing her learning with courses from the Maine Media Institute, she also has many years of shooting corporate projects, commercials, music, and lifestyle shows as a camera operator before making the shift to Director of Photography. With this diverse background, Alysha is equally adept at run and gun documentary style shoots, meticulous, artful, and thoughtful lighting plans, and everything in between.
Currently based in Toronto, Ontario, Alysha is fully equipped to create beautiful visuals for every story she helps tell.
