ABOUT .....

Ed is director of photography who does commercial, narrative and doc work.

A short film he did for Sean Kennedy won a Primetime Emmy in 2014.  A commercial he shot won the Grande Prix at Cannes 2014 and another won the Palme d'Or in 2016 both with director John X. Carey.

Ed tries to bring honesty and an emotional connection to the people he films.   

For him, camera movement and composition is just as important as lighting.  How a frame moves into the next frame. So are lenses and color.  Older lenses give a certain feel that modern ones lack. 

He understands the needs of the director since he makes his own films as well.  He understands what she or he needs in terms of dedication to their ideas, as well as drive to not give up, to give them the shots they need to tell their story.  And if you are a producer reading this, he completely understands your needs as well and thinks you are wonderful.

Ed takes on every project with as much energy as humanly possible.  Cinematography is his passion, along with writing and making films about social change and playing super nintendo.  

He's in the local 600 union.

He's a local to New York but travels frequently.

He works on all projects, big and small.
