About Me

Hi! I'm Andrea and I'm a commercial and narrative music video, documentary, and film Director of Photography in Dallas, TX. The Home Sweet Home music video I shot and edited has been featured at local and international film festivals and won awards for Music Video Original at the 2018 Music Video Fest and Best Music Video at the 2018 Cutting Edge International Film Festival.

My gear is Vintage Zeiss Jena & Flecktogon Primes (20mm, 35mm, 50mm, 80mm, & 120mm), LED lights, Halogen lights, Paper Lantern lights + accessories.

I have shot with Sony FS5, Sony FS7, Sony AS7, Canon C200, Canon 7D cameras, Small HD and Atomos monitors, Fujinon & Sigma Cine Lenses, and Nucleus Follow Focus system.

I'm super detail oriented, don't crack under pressure, and love meeting new people and going to new places. I can't wait to work with you!
