Doc-style commercial cinematographer. I specialize in organic, hand-held camera work, smooth gimbal operation, and naturalistic lighting.
I'm well connected in San Diego and would be happy to help you assemble the rest of your crew and/or gear rentals if you're coming from out of town.
I have Canon C200 & C200B camera packages with an EasyRig for hand-held work and a Ronin for gimbal work. I can shoot 4K raw or compressed UHD and can come with my laptop and card readers to transfer and backup footage for you.
I also have a wireless director's monitor package and other helpful gear available for rental.
I have been in the industry since 2002.
Chris is a total pro! I hired him to DP and operate a gig I was producing. He was extremely professional, creative, and a complete pleasure to work with. I’m very happy with what he and his team was able to bring to the table and would totally hire him again.
Chris is one of my go-to guys. His work is consistently amazing, his attitude always one of can-do, and he always seems to have the right tool to make the shot happen. He's creative and efficient, and is able to work fast and still deliver great looking footage. Plus, he's just a nice guy, so that's always a plus on set.
As an out-of-town producer I needed a great shooter, and almost as important, someone who could foresee and deal with every production problem that might arise. Chris combined those skills; he was talented, creative, flexible, dependable and a total pleasure to work with. The footage he shot for us looks and sounds terrific. I recommend him without reservation.
Chris was very professional, creative with the direction he was given and good at solving problems on the fly. I would hire him again.
