Director of Photography reel

I have recently updated my DP reel and made it available here.

There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.

I have been working behind the lens for almost 20 years, as Director of Photography, Photographer, and as a Studio Chief Lighting Technician. I believe that the language of visual storytelling is a complex one that invollves composition, optics, light and movement. This is the first reel I’ve put together in awhile, but it won’t be the last. Consider it a work in progress and feel free to comment.

My experience includes working with 35mm and 16mm film cameras, broadcast video, High Definition, and all of the latest digital cameras.
