About Me

Sony FX9 / FS7 crewing!

I’m a working DP / Lighting Cameraman / Filmmaker with over 25 years experience in the Seattle film and TV market, currently based out of Bozeman, Montana (www.detourpictures.com). Tapping into my studio & broadcast experience, I work hard to implement network quality lighting into my corporate films and the various TV/web shows that I shoot and field-produce. I graduated with a B.S. in Motion Picture Production from Montana State University, and also studied broadcasting at the University of Idaho.

Some recent National corporate clients include Wells-Fargo Bank, Chase Mortgage Bank, Cummins Diesel, the Boeing Company and Hamamatsu Photonics. Recent broadcast clients include the TMZ Channel, HBO Real Sports, Inside Edition and Lift The Ice.

In the Seattle market, I filmed for countless TV clients, including MTV, VH1, The Travel Channel, HGTV, Discovery, The Bachelor, Montel, A&E, etc. I’ve also Field-Produced and shot dozens of business-profile shows airing on Fox Business News and Kiplinger Reports.

I’m experienced lighting and managing large studios ( Seattle Grip and Lighting, Pacific Grip & Lighting, Microsoft Studios, The Victory Studios), as well as small projects on location.

"We are adept at Zoom shoots!"

Again, I especially love the lighting process and have been a Lighting Director on many infomercials and countless executive interviews in the Fortune 500 sector. While shooting for Univision TV, I was flattered when soccer legend, David Beckham, went out of his way to shake my hand, for the attention to detail on his interview lighting. At the time, I didn’t even know who I was filming; which of course, became a bit humorous for the rest of the production crew. See a bit more at www.detourpictures.com.

Ok, that’s enough about me. :). Thanks for making it this far.

PS: A client email:
"As you know, too often out of town clients come and go and you never get much feedback from the work you've done. Well let me just tell you as I sit here editing the footage from New York, Boston, Washington DC, and San Francisco--I have to say nobody else holds a candle to you! All of the interviews you shot look fantastic! It's incredible how much nicer the lighting and composition looks. "

Thanks again!

I have been in the industry since 1996.
