EMMY AWARD WINNING pHOTOGRAPHER

There's something familiar about a camera, when you hold it in your hands. Memories, stories, people - some that you haven't even experienced yet, can be captured in the right hands. As a photojournalist, it's my opportunity to help create a record of those moments. 

But stories die, everyday.

History vanishes right in front of us, the stories don't have to become rumble or buried - as a society with cameras, we can prevent that with video documentation.

I'm available for domestic and international storytelling, regardless of how substantial a story can be or how personal.

aDVENTURE TOURISM

Making work play time, nothing beats the opportunity to capture the wilderness at it's best. From kayaking winding rivers, climbing a route in the Gorge, to aerial photography - if it brings out the adventurer in someone, count me in.

Documentary

It's definitive storytelling, focusing on a particular conflict, cause, or interest - an opportunity for me to focus on creating a factual record through film and journalism.

BREAKING NEWS

Years of experience covering breaking news in several cities, working well with authorities to provide video as the scene develops and to gather crucial information for broadcast television and social media.

Event Photography & Videography –

It's about capturing the moments you missed, even if you were front row at the show. People can get lost in the music, the lyrics hit so close to home, with film we can bring those words to life - a piece that visually illustrates your album, your passion, and image.

From all day coverage of a music festival, open mic night, or in depth interviews with the musicians and presenters - my crew can handle it. As a creative, I look to musicians for inspiration, of course working with them is simply one of my favorite things. 

Recording session or playing at the bar downtown, I'm available to capture that step in your journey.

Pre-production

We establish our relationship early into the project, depending on the role I am hired to fill (I can fill the shoes of a cinematographer, editor, grip, or director of photography) we can begin tackling how the project will be handled. Story-boarding a shot list, scripting dialogue, understanding the purpose and targeted audience of the finished product. We'll also determine what equipment is need to complete the project.

ON LOCATION

Depending on the role, I work closely with the client to achieve the overall feel of the project. It's important to capture everything needed out in the field than to realize we overlooked a detail during the editing process. I can bring a mobile editing bay to review any of the footage shot on location. I use professional photography and video equipment, which can handle any sort of conditions - underwater or high altitude. 

editing

Occasionally I'll have the opportunity to edit the footage I captured, but I do work closely with editors - I attempt to make their job as hassle free as possible. All of my footage is organized and structured to go with the storyboards, raw footage can be a pain to sort through so I label every clip appropriately. 

If I'm the editor of the project, expect a quick turn around for a rough cut which will allow us time for re-edits - but let's get it right the first time.
