I am a director of photography/steadicam op who does commercial, narrative and doc work.
A short film I did for Sean Kennedy won a Primetime Emmy in 2014. A commercial I shot won the Grande Prix at Cannes 2014 and another won the Palme d'Or in 2016 for director John X. Carey.
I try to bring honesty and an emotional connection to the people I film.
For me, camera movement and composition is just as important as lighting. How a frame moves into the next frame. So are lenses and color.
I understand the needs of the director since I make my own films as well. I understand what they need in terms of dedication to their ideas, as well as drive to not give up. And if you are a producer reading this, I completely understand your needs as well and thinks you are wonderful.
I takes on every project with as much energy as humanly possible. Cinematography is my passion, along with writing and making films about social change and playing super nintendo and photography.
I'm in the local 600 union.
I'm a local to New York but travels frequently.
I work on all projects, big and small.
