I'm a freelance photographer and filmmaker based in the San Francisco Bay Area. My background in journalism has made me a versatile shooter, and my work now ranges from editorial to commercial to documentary and experimental/personal projects. After 10 years at it, I've realized my strength is in finding compelling, honest and moving stories and pairing them with authentic and visually sophisticated moments. 

I came out to San Francisco on my bicycle from the east coast in 2012. This journey was one of the most challenging and amazing experiences of my life. AND it's the subject of my first feature-length documentary film, America Recycled, which was co-directed with my brother Noah Hussin and follows the two-year, 5,000-mile bicycle trip that we took through hidden pockets of the American South. 

I more recently left a staff photographer/filmmaker position at the San Francisco Chronicle, where I co-produced a weekly video column with Erin Brethauer, called The Regulars, and co-directed the Chronicle's first feature-length documentary film, Last Men Standing, about long-term HIV/AIDS survivors. Both films have toured festivals worldwide.

I've won numerous awards in the POYi and BOP contests, and have worked with publications such as National Geographic Magazine, California Sunday Magazine, Pop Up Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, NPR,  The Guardian, The Telegraph, Le Monde, Huck Magazine, Oxford American, Virginia Quarterly Review and Airbnb. 

I love to meet new clients and collaborators. So feel free to reach out...
