I work both as a DP and Photographer. Background: went through the union ranks on the East Coast from AC to Gaffer and LD, now DP, independent, based out of San Francisco.
Many years helming commercials, documentaries and corporate videos as DP. Was LD with Maysles Brothers for many years.
Originally from NYC, specialized in table-top as well as green screen. Moved to the West Coast in 2000. Principal clients currently include Wells Fargo, Charles Schwab, Pay Pal, etc.
Stills work focuses on portraiture and events.
Competent on all camera platforms, confident lighting any situation from single light to 10 ton lighting/grip trucks with full crew. It’s what I do.
