Walters was raised in Nova Scotia and began making a living behind the camera at the age of thirteen. Only five years later he would move to New York City and find opportunity with Warner Borthers Online at the peak of the internet boom. In 2003 the young camera man was drafted into television commercials by mogul Bob Giraldi, for whom he would go on to shot over thirty projects.  To date, Walters has lensed several hundred commercials and eight feature films, the most recent of which, “Faraway Eyes,” starring Christina Ricci, will premier in 2019.
