Early life and career[edit]

Fong showed interest and talent in art at a young age. His experience in photography and film was self-taught, beginning in junior high with short films shot on Super 8, cel animation, and stop motion projects. He graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in Linguistics and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, specializing in film and photography.

He began his professional career filming music videos, and garnered enough attention to result in him filming two independent films and various TV pilots, commercials, and shorts.

In 2004, he was hired to film the Lost pilot, for which he was nominated for an ASC Award.[1][2]

2006 saw the release of his first studio film, 300, directed by Zack Snyder.

In 2011, he was accepted into the American Society of Cinematographers,[3] and in 2012 he was accepted into the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.[4]

Fong is also an accomplished magician and is a member of the Academy of Magical Arts.[5][6][7]
