A North Carolina (Charlotte NC local) based, seasoned professional DP (Director of Photography) with over 28 years of true crime, reality, home makeover, corporate, commercial, and documentary production experience. Available camera packages include two Sony FS7's , Sony a7s III mirrorless camera/Ronin RSC2 Gimbal, and DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone. I can work as a one-man-band or compile a complete video camera crew here in North Carolina and around the Southeast.
I am experienced at working with remote producers. I have a special built laptop stand to go next to camera for remote producers to conduct the interview via Zoom or Teams anywhere in the world. I can direct feed the output of my Sony FS7 back to the remote producer. I routinely arrange and provide for my clients, COVID safety compliant video camera crews ranging from a one-man-band to a full crew.
My experience includes going on-location and finding the best "look angle" for an interview set-up. I am comfortable setting up a great looking and sounding interview. I have both Canon zoom and CINE prime lenses. My lighting kit includes Bi-color battery-powered LED panels, Kino Flo soft light, Arri 300, Arri 150, and DedoLight. I know how to shoot creative B-roll to make your editor very happy. I have my FAA and North Carolina state certifications for commercial UAS ("Drone") operation and I fly a DJI Mavic 2 Pro 4K drone. My company has $1 million in both general liability and drone liability insurance on all productions.
My clients include multiple large corporate clients, Brandstar, A&E Network, National Geographic, Discovery, NOVA, NASCAR, NBC Sports, NFL Network, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Red Bull Media Group, and the American Cancer Society.My clients include multiple large corporate clients, Brandstar, A&E Network, National Geographic, Discovery, NOVA, NASCAR, NBC Sports, NFL Network, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Red Bull Media Group, and the American Cancer Society.
