In my work as a cinematographer I strive to be confident in the technology and equipment used so that I operate from the right hemisphere of my brain to observe light, color, patterns, movement and how these visceral elements can be captured in a dance with the camera to tell a story. There is no box.
Here are a few examples of recent work.
Director of Photography
Because the main energy of visual story telling is light, I have studied light for many years. Getting formal training with grip and electric gear in film school and my internship at Cinepartners Grip and Electric rental house, I was equipped with the knowledge of the lights used in production. Several years working as a gaffer and lighting assistant has given me the ability to utilize those tools to use light to the advantage of the story. Light is one of my favorite toys.
