Bardia Zeinali

Director

The visual content creator’s mash-up aesthetic caught the industry’s attention with his videos for Troye Sivan’s Bloom and the Met Gala.

Biography

The pop videographer, beloved by the likes of Petra Collins , Paris Hilton and Pat McGrath , is known for a mash-up style and distinct aesthetic that scored him a role as Vogue’s visual content creator, until leaving to pursue a freelance career.

Bardia Zeinali grew up in Vancouver, Canada, dreaming of becoming a musician. However, he turned to video instead. While at Vogue, he posted clips of Anna Wintour in her office for the publication’s Snapchat and created short and quickly viral videos on celebrities like Beth Ditto, as well as recordings at the Women’s March in Washington DC and the post-election Trump protests. He also shot the videos at the Met Gala 2018, where he made photobooth-style clips with the Met as a backdrop, starring Rihanna, Katy Perry and Anna Wintour. 

In early 2018, he left Vogue to pursue a freelance career, scoring clients like pop star Troye Sivan along the way, for whom he made a video for his latest single, “Bloom.”

Zeinali lives on the Lower East Side in New York.
