About Me

I'm a Director of Photography, Movi Pro operator, camera operator and gaffer at Synchronicity Motion Pictures, offering top quality work in anything from shorts, features, episodic TV, documentary, commercials, corporate and more.

I own and operate a RED Weapon Helium, Panasonic Varicam 35, Sony FS7 Mark II, Sony A7S II, Panasonic Lumix GH4, with options for PL, EF and E-Mounts available.

Own a Movi Pro with RT Motion motors, CineMilled accessories, ReadyRig, Atomos Shogun Inferno 4K recorder, Paralinx Ace 2:1 wireless transmitters.

Sliders and jibs available are Kessler CineDrive, Shuttle Dolly, CineDrive Motion Control and PocketJib Pro.

Need lights and grip? I drive a Ram Promaster grip truck, and can provide powerful low power-consumption lights, stands from C-stands to high rollers, grid cloth, soft frost, tough spun, including BBS Area 48 remote phosphors, Joker1600w, frames, stands, in many sizes and much more.

A full range of Canon CN-E primes are available, modified to PL mount via Duclos Lenses, and cover full frame sensors. Canon maintains a warm look, and is excellent on skin tones.

JokerBug 1600W with bug-a-beam adapter to add Leko barrels for a very strong, defined beam of light when needed. Outstanding power in a low-weight, efficient light which can run on 15amp house power.
