Justin Tyler Close is a Canadian-born visual artist currently based in Los Angeles. He studied film and photography before founding The Lab Magazine in 2010, which launched his photography career and gave him the opportunity to work directly with brands such as Commes Des Garcons, Givenchy and talent such as Bryan Cranston, Lykke Li, Wes Anderson, Marina Abramovic, and Willem Dafoe. 

After the success of THE LAB, Justin began directing commercials and was nominated for a Cannes Young Director’s Award for a series of films called “Seeker Stories” made for SAUCONY RUNNING. Since then he’s directed commercial spots for MASTERCARD, CHEVROLET, CITIBANK, NORDSTROM and MORE.

His latest passion project called “THE FIFTY ELEVEN PROJECT“ includes 11 music -art - films made for 11 compositions by Danish artist KASPER BJRØKE QUARTET (a full visual album). Justin is currently developing a TV show and two feature film projects.
