I highly recommend Skye Fitzgerald as a DP/Cameraman. My client is in here in Florida, but wanted a spokesperson filmed with prompter in Oregon. The budget would not permit me to travel, so I turned to the Production Hub and found Skye. When the requirements changed, requiring our spokesperson be shot in front of green screen, Skye made that happen, and at an affordable rate. The final results were outstanding. I was easily able to pull a key from the green screen footage, and the background plates matched the foreground quite well. Throughout the process I found Skye to be helpful, and professional.

Skye is both professional and a pleasure to work with. His understanding of producing, directing and editing make him extra effective as a DP. He always captures great footage even under the more trying conditions. I highly recommend him.
I highly recommend Skye as an experienced DP. I sent Skye out into the field to capture b-roll footage and interviews around our current work in the DRC. He was ready, willing, responsive, easy to work with and captured great footage. This was our first time working together and it was a great experience.
I've worked with Skye on several films that he has DPed. His dedication to craft in capturing compelling, quality footage under challenging work conditions and with difficult subject matter, has him on my short list for any future project. I highly recommend him as a talented and excellent resource.

I worked with Skye Fitzgerald last summer in Portland, Oregan while filming for a documentary. He was great to work with and shot some fabulous footage. Highly recommend.
