The beginning of any production requires lots of prep work. Be it meeting with a client, working out a shot list, or creating story boards, I'm a big fan of knowing what we want before we try and shoot it. So please feel free to contact me to discuss your production and give you a quote for my services.

What you will see in all of my work is a level of enthusiasm, drive and passion to create something of quality. The reason why? I don't get involved with projects I am not willing to stand behind.
Over the years I have collected a good amount of equipment that can be used to facilitate a production of small to medium size. Please contact me with your production needs and I will be happy to provide you a list of what I have access to.
Additionally I have experience working with a number of different camera systems; Canon DSLRs (5d mk2/3, 70d, 7d, 60d), Canon XH-A1/A1s, XF-300, C-100, C-300, Sony FS-700, RED One/Scarlet/Epic, Arri Alexa, and more
Unsend: This was the second short film that I created and was the Director of Photography for.
L.A.T.E.: Was and idea I came up with while being a swat actor on a student set and became my first short. I directed and DPd this one.
While I do not pitch myself as an editor, I am very familiar with several editing programs, and color correction programs. The majority of my workflow tends to be High Definition and Ultra High Definition (4K).
I love taking stills, particularly the outdoors and getting out into the wild. Not only because of the wildlife, and the chance to get images of them, but the landscapes and scenes off the beaten path. I love doing high dynamic range photography, and have a particular fondness for long exposure shots of the night sky. Studio photography is also of particular interest to me and I love using multiple lights and set peices to create a scene.
Here is a mix of some of the work I have don on the internet.
SCRAPPER GIRL: was a short series by Chinimblelore productions (I was hired as a camera operator) based on a girl who scraps metal for money.
RAPID FIRE REVIEW: was a web series reviewing airsoft guns that I Produced for Pyramydair.com. I also created the pilot, directed, and shot (with help of others I hired) over the course of three years.
Right, I love a good camera. Be it a DSLR, Video camera, or Cinema camera. Like any toll they all have there place and time for use. Here are a few that I have experience with and am particularly fond of.
RED SCARLET/EPIC - This is one of my favorites, not only because of the high resolution, but also because of the ability to shoot in raw. I love post production with this camera. Yes it's lots of data, but what you can do with it just amazes me.
ARRI ALEXA - Such an amazing camera, this one is a beast, but with an image quality that is absolutely breathtaking. The only camera so far to really challenge my default choice of shooting with a Red.
CANON 5d MK3 - So much in such a small package, if you need a DSLR form factor this is the guy to go with. Shooting RAW video with the Magic Lantern softwear also squarely places this camera on my radar.
