a small selected sampling of recent work.
Sony Playstation "Lost in Music"
This is a promotional piece for the Sony PlayStation VR "Lost in Music" campaign in 2017, produced by Ralph Creative and shot at LA Hangar Studios. I was the Director of Photography for this promo as well as the event itself, and it was amazing to work on such a beautifully-designed studio set.
I love combining my love of scuba diving with underwater cinematography. Here is some of my underwater work, shot on Arri Alexa, Alexa Mini, F55, and A7Rii, for feature films, commercials, promos and music videos. Shot in various locations including LA, NY, CT, NC, and FL.
Vidant Health Cancer Commercial
Meals on Wheels: "It's More Than Just a Meal"
"1 in 4 seniors lives alone in isolation. Join the network of two million volunteers who are making a difference in the lives of seniors across the country."
This was a branded content commercial I shot for the New York Times and Meals on Wheels, produced by the Mustache Agency. Shot on ALEXA Mini with Zeiss Super Speed MkIII lenses.
This is one of a 2017 commercial series for Vidant Health that I was Director of Photography on. Shot on Arri ALEXA Mini with rehoused Kowa Cine-Prominar prime lenses, the whole project involved 7 days of filming in 3 cities in the Southeast and culminated in 3 different commercial spots.
Childress Vineyards Commercial
I was the cinematographer for this commercial for Childress Vineyards, owned by legendary NASCAR team owner Richard Childress. We shot this over 2 days on Alexa Mini and a classic Cooke Varotal 18-100mm lens. All flares in the spot are natural.
Vanity Fair Instagram Portraits
This project was Vanity Fair's first ever Instagram videos, posted LIVE right after the White House Correspondent's Dinner in Washington, D.C. To see how this video was created, see this blog post. Shot on RED Epic Dragon in 5K 120 fps, with 2 moving light fixtures and a moving camera, everything had to be timed perfectly to hit the 15-second Instagram time limit.
BEST LOGISTICS COMMERCiAL
This is a 30-second, 2017 brand spot for longstanding client BEST Logistics, a company providing trucking and logistics support throughout the Southeastern US.
I was Director and DP on this shoot, which employed steadicam with my ALEXA Mini, Zeiss Ultra Prime lenses, and a high-key look.
I was DP and shooter for this promo for Netflix, entitled "Netflix Cheaterz", featuring original host Joey Greco, produced by Ralph Creative in the UK and shot in Los Angeles. The client wanted to create a comedic promo series that followed the original show, featuring couples where one side would "cheat" (ie. watch ahead) in a particular series.
Throughout 2015 and 2016 I had the privilege of working with a group of great producers who got us amazing access in VA to film a documentary about some of the best Bluegrass and Old Time musicians in the world. Here is the trailer for the upcoming film, which is slated to be released at film festivals soon.
I shot this music video, "Get Away" by Casual Confusion, with director Sam Fischer at Four Aces Movie Set near Palmdale, CA. The client wanted black and white, with a performance outside the set including rain towers. Shot over the course of 3 days, this one was a blast to work on.
