DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY

After thirty rewarding years working in motion picture production, I am well versed in the technical aspects of the photographic process including lighting, exposure and composition. I have served as Director of Photography, Camera Operator, Videographer and Camera Assistant. Working on many low budget shoots, I have learned to improvise when encountering limitations. I have done extensive exterior work ranging from the desert to the mountains.

Colleagues know me as a great team player. I genuinely enjoy the collaborative aspect of the filmmaking process. Presenting plenty of creative ideas of my own, I always endeavor to remain focused on supporting the director's vision.

I have on the job experience with the following camera systems:

Film:
-Panavision, Arriflex, Moviecam, Aaton, VistaVision, Eclair, CP and Eyemo.

Video:
-Arri Alexa
-Sony Cine Alta F55, F900, EX1, EX3, HDCAM, XDCAM, DVCAM, BetaCAM SP, etc.
-Panasonic Varicam HD, HPX3000, HDX900, DVCPRO, HVX200, DVX100, P2, etc.
-Canon 5D Mk III, 5D Mk II, 7D, XL series, etc.
-Red One, Red Epic, Red Scarlet
-Ikegami, Hitachi, JVC, Sharp, RCA, Contour, GoPro, etc.

My experience also extends to a wide variety of special use camera support systems including:

Steadicam, Power Pod, Hot Head, Gyrosphere, Tyler, Jimmy Jib, Cam Mate, Shotmaker, Tulip, Chapman, Fisher, McAlister, Lomax and Pogocam.
