2018 Showreel

2018 Cinematography Showreel

Thank you for viewing my 2018 cinematography and videography showreel featuring samples from my recent client work. I am very pleased with how it turned out! I made sure to include a taste of several different types of work I am generally hired for: as a cinematographer where I can control the look of a film or video, or as a videographer capturing reality such as private events, documentary, or broadcast journalism.

I create a lot of corporate films and industrial videos, TV spots, music videos and other branded content. I record tons of interviews and testimonials every year, and beautiful stock footage or B-roll, from the ground or in the sky.

My clients appreciate that I can tackle a project as a “one-man-band” often serving as an entire film crew all by myself; simultaneously fulfilling roles such as director, producer, cinematographer, sound recordist, key grip, editor, and sometimes actor.

Occasionally, I am blessed to work on larger projects like the features and short films, where I may have access to a crew, plus lighting and grip trucks. I do enjoy working with small crews. It’s far more intimate and you really get to form close relationships with everyone on the team.

My Sony FS7 Mark II is a proven industry workhorse. I have an outstanding collection of future-proof cinema production lenses, and modern stills lenses. Additionally, I have invested in professional field audio recording gear, and lighting equipment, to make sure even my smallest productions look and sound their best.

I also have extensive experience working with many different cameras like Sony CineAlta, Panasonic Varicam, and Red Epic to name a few – but I always offer clients my services first with my in-house personal collection of equipment which saves them money, time, and hassle.

I am located in Sparta, Tennessee, as of July 2021, but available for projects worldwide. Contact me today to discuss your next project! I look forward to working with you.
