I have over 30 years of experience photographing hundreds of projects all over the United States and 10 countries around the world. I have photographed 23 feature films as a first or second unit Director of Photography. I’ve also shot narrative and documentary style television projects for all of the major networks and cable channels including NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, BBC, HBO, MTV, Showtime, Discovery, Animal Planet and National Geographic. In addition, I have numerous commercial, corporate, and documentary film credits.
Several projects that I’ve shot have won prestigious awards, including an Academy Award (short film, camera operator) and an Emmy (Christmas special, camera operator). The feature film The Juniper Tree, was a Grand Jury finalist at the Sundance Film Festival and was singer/actress Bjork’s first feature film. I was honored when I was selected to film the Dalai Lama when he received a Congressional Gold Medal from the President in Washington, DC. My images were webcast live to a world-wide audience.
Early in my career, I developed a strong foundation for my own cinematography by absorbing diverse photographic styles. I was fortunate to work as a gaffer or camera operator with some of Hollywood’s most prestigious Director’s of Photography. That list includes Academy Award winners John Alcott, BSC (Barry Lyndon, The Shining, A Clockwork Orange), John Alonzo, ASC (Chinatown, Scarface, Star Trek Generations), Robert Elswit, ASC (There Will Be Blood, Michael Clayton, Syrianna), Robert Richardson, ASC (Shutter Island, The Aviator, Kill Bill), Russell Carpenter, ASC (Titanic, True Lies, Charlies Angels).
Some of my feature credits include: Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure (2nd Unit), Men At Work (2nd Unit), House Party (2nd Unit), Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter Is Dead (2nd Unit), Imaginary Crimes (2nd Unit), Claire of the Moon, The Juniper Tree, Trainmaster II, Barefoot to Jerusalem.
