About

Jethro Waters.jpg

“Jethro has that rarest of gifts, a perfectly proportioned mind, eye, and instinct for delivering his eloquent artistic erudition like a lighting bolt of intuitive energy to the moment. Jethro sees through his heart with eyes and feelings that transcend mere words. This man performs music with his camera. His language is visual, a voice for a depth of his being.”

- Burk Uzzle

"Jethro has always been my co-director, my co-editor, and my number one space cowboy co-pilot. If you decide to work with him in any capacity I can assure you he will greet you and your project from the heart and with a squinty eye, just in case. You need both, you see.”

- Angel Olsen
