Mihai Chebac is an established Romanian-American cinematographer living in Boston MA, USA. He is originally from Romania, where he earned a Masters in Arts from I.L. Caragiale Film Institute in Bucharest. Upon completion of his studies, he  worked at Buftea Film Studios in Bucharest as a cinematographer on feature films. He came to the United States in the the 80's and began working  with top studios and agencies in Boston, New York, and Los Angeles. He currently lives and works in Boston, MA,  where he runs his  company Avangarda Films LLC. Even though he has been working as a professional cinematographer for over 30 years, he has just begun his pursuits as an aspiring photographer.

"And if a day goes by without my doing  something related to photography, it's as through I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. I know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible."

Richard Avedon, 1970
