About Me

Three time Emmy award winning director of photography. I have spent over 35+ years in the television broadcasting and production industry, and have worked for several networks and production companies. I consider myself to be a creative visual thinker who believes that there are some things that can only be communicated and expressed through the visual medium. I am a dedicated professional who will work hard for my clients and bring all of my experience, skill, and wisdom to every shoot. This includes doing things in a safe and sensible manner. I am an honest, trustworthy, and punctual individual who is easy to work with. Along my career path, I've had the opportunity to work with quite a few very talented individuals. Through those experiences, I have developed a keen understanding of how to tell a story, and what it takes to create stimulating visual content. I will always go the extra mile whenever necessary.

In addition to my videography skills, I am an equally capable and talented still photographer. From head shots, environmental portraits, and editorial coverage, to corporate events, galas, and fashion shoots. I can also provide green screen shoots, photo printing on site services, and instant/on location social media uploads. My website is DezVisionphotography.com
