With every frame I shoot, I try to tell a story. A story about what a character is going through, or what an interviewee is thinking. I believe film is a very powerful medium, both to portray feelings and convey messages. Whether it's happiness or sorrow, anger or peacefulness, I think every emotion has a 'look'. I take pride and find joy in creating those 'looks', and building a world with a camera. I am a committed learner and fan of the visual arts, and I strive to be a cinematographer that creates beautiful and thought-provoking images that stand out among the rest.
The Tenant is a story of a lonely man struggling to find his place in the world. I made a concerted effort to create very distinct lighting for this film, while also focusing on using foley and other sounds to create a mood. The film asks the question: which side of yourself do you want to be? You can only be one.
Veracity is centered around a homeless man who wakes up behind an abandoned building to find his friend dead. Probably my most ambitious project, Veracity includes numerous locations and lighting scenarios.
