    About me

    I'm a DOP generally based in NYC USA, currently spending time in the UK. I was a news and documentary cameraman for ABC TV Network. In my Indie dramatic films I continue to apply the process of improvisation or 'thinking on my feet' to get the kind of mood and shot coverage that I learnt to look for in non-fiction films.

    I've had my dramatic cinematography at the Sundance Festival. (See the psychological thriller, MR. VINCENT.)

    I'm very attentive to lighting. This includes using existing lighting and accenting it with some creative license without blasting. I am very inspired by Film Noir and by the French New Wave. But I am also continually drawing inspiration about the lighting of the human face from medieval and renaissance painters. Lighting, like acting, needs to be motivated.

    My cinematography is grounded in technique, but, for me, the story always comes first.
