I am a Director of Photography (commercial) and Professional Photographer living and working in the greater Los Angeles area.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Feature Film Production with an emphasis on cinematography. I feel very fortunate that I attended film school during the time when viable digital motion picture systems were first being introduced and therefore I was able to learn both traditional film and digital workflows.
The majority of my clients are corporate - I shoot product and event photography. I specialize in the use of motion picture techniques in my still photo work such as the use of fixed studio lights and green screen systems for the creation of composite images.
When shooting events I fall back on my years of working in the Newspaper Industry; I prefer to go unseen and capture my images as they unfold. I am without question drawn to the photojournalism style of photography. I feel there is truth in real moments and I enjoy finding the rhythm of an even to capture slivers of truth when my subjects are unaware that I am focused on them.
In all I find that photography is tremendously rewarding and my education in film production has further cemented my desire to capture images which tell a story.
I feel my best images are the ones which leave the viewer with the desire to want to understand the image better.
