DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY, PRODUCER
For 20 years I’ve had the privilege of working in the Film and Television industry. The last 15 years credited as Director of Photography. With two decades working alongside and learning from great Directors, I’ve expanded my skillset to producing story and directing talent. I’m grateful for a career that has demanded hard, quality work at home in the US and across 25 countries. I believe in maintaining high standards, communication and above all, teamwork. My work experience spans most subjects from documentary, build & process, adventure, cooking, travel, true crime, and paranormal.
More below on what I work hard to deliver.
Providing clear direction and communication gives purpose to the crew. The result is more than a quality product, there’s pride behind it and a strong sense of comradery that lasts beyond time on set. Mentorship and providing environments for crewmembers to succeed and work towards their full potential is as important as the project itself. I work hard alongside crew to create a safe, efficient and enjoyable work experience.
I offer experience directing camera and talent for a natural feel with quality coverage, giving close attention to detail, guiding and unfolding the story coherently for the viewer. My upbringing in the industry taught me to tell a story through the lens naturally, on the move without disruption.
I work to exceed expectations and match the look, feel and pace of the subject. No project is the same and creating new and original visuals is among the best aspects of the job, pushing mediums to inspire the best quality in picture.
CAMERA & SPECIALTY EQUIPMENT
I've curated a personal selection of equipment including modern cameras, new and vintage glass, motion control and lighting. The combinations of these tools allow my work to be fast, efficient and provide the tailored imagery I’m expected to deliver. For more detail, see equipment.
Interviews, scene work and recreations. My lighting experience ranges from studio sets to exterior environments and vehicles. I provide quality lighting from bold and stylized, to subtle and natural. I have also worked extensively with available light keeping a small footprint while maintaining quality picture.
