Experience: I have been a DP for over 8 years, having worked extensively in the documentary field. I am a skilled camera operator, a fast lighting technician, and extremely computer savvy. I have experience shooting around the world and I am comfortable on any type of shoot from a corporate boardroom to hanging out of a helicopter to filming in a small village in Africa. High pressure situations do not faze me in the least, and I communicate excellently with Producers, Directors and documentary subjects.
Past Clients Include: United Airlines, Visa, ESPN, Cartoon Network, Applejacks, UCSF, Alltel Cell Carrier, Ensure, Koodo, NARAL, ServPro, Chem Lawn
I am proficient with these cameras: Canon 5D Mark II, RED "One", Panasonic HDX900/SDX900, Varicam, Panasonic HVX200 (with and without Mini 35 w/ Zeiss lenses), Canon XHA1, Sony Betacam, various ENG cameras, and most miniDV cameras including Canon XL1/2. Many other cameras as well, including film (email me for more information).
I have filmed in: US, Canada, Mexico, France, Italy, England, Scotland, Egypt, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Brazil, South Africa, Uganda, Mauritius, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, China, and Japan (to name a few). I am always looking to add to this list; let me know about your travel project!
