As one great cinematographer once said, good cinematography is the right cinematography for each script that you make. This is how I see it too.
It's all about story telling for me. On set I love to collaborate with the Director to help them achieve their vision while simultaneously collaborating with the producer to help bring the project in on time and on budget. On a long TV series or a one day shoot, I enjoy building the visuals to produce the very best product possible for the time and money available.
I have been shooting features, television drama, commercials, music videos, and documentaries for the past twenty years but I'm still just as excited and motivated as the first day I raised a camera to my eye!
I come from a long line of cinematographer/photographers. Both my father and grandfather before me made many movies and always carried a stills camera wherever they went. This is a family tradition I am pleased to have kept alive in my own right.
