    About me

    I'm Babi, a cinematographer and gaffer.I'm a friendly and workaholic guy who is willing to help in his best interest and produce a good piece of work which it is the reason that he is here. For the same reason and to improve my knowledge I'm studying at Mphil/PhD Art and design - Cinematography and Philosophy.

    My passion is cinematography and for this reason I worked on over 40 projects as a Director of photography, Gaffer and their assistants include Features, Shorts, Students and Music Videos. I'm experienced in working with huge range of video cameras include Arri Alexa, RED, Canon Cine, DSLRs etc. Hence, I'm confident to use any video cameras. I do believe that lighting is one of the most important knowledge which a cinematographer should have. For that reason I experienced the field as a Gaffer, Lighting Designer and their assistant.I feel that I am well qualified to be an effective member in shooting and lighting for film, video and photography projects.

    Professional Recommendations

    Jeffrey Owusu Cinematographer

    Clearly Mr jani, is a professional dop/gaffer he came on board a our short film and made the film it is today, he had a very professional attitude, was always on time and the last to leave on most night, made sure all the kit was pack properly even this was not his role, he help out steer the look of film with his invaluable knowledge, crew like Mr Jani are hard to come buy so when they are your project, you know your in safe hand, we will always give Jani (babi) first refusal on any of our upcoming project.cannot recommend Jani enough, I can go on but if you want to see the wrath of Babi, you to will be be please as the producer and I was.Thanks Jani and keep film alive with what you do so well as a cinematographer and the occasional gaffer man.
