Gear

As a director of photography I always seek to carefully choose the appropriate tools for my work as a visual storyteller. Beautiful and effective cinematography relies on the use of cameras and lighting that reflect the desired look and feel of the film. For that reason, I am well-aquainted with a wide variety of 4K and HD camera systems that serve a diverse collection of genres, styles and working environments. 

Special skills include underwater work, motion control timelapse, wildlife set work, slider/jib operation, Steadicam operation and remote camera setup. I have also rigged cameras to cars, motorcycles, boats, planes and other vehicles. For wildlife work, I am also experienced at building camera blinds to disguise my presence while filming.
