DOP / Cinematographer

Career Summary

I paint with light. - It is my utmost passion in conveying a powerful narrative through the artistic, creative and technical knowledge of lighting, composition and movement, creating fascinating and exceptional visuals that captivates the heart and soul. - I consider myself a visual junkie and I get excited over anything visual. I like to observe how light falls on a subject, how to shape it, bounce it, how far I can push it in the grade and what emotions they might evoke combined with movement. I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to work a job I absolutely love, doing creative projects with cool people. - With over 10 years experience in the industry and having worked in both Camera and Lighting departments on traditional big sets and also as a solo lighting cameraman, I pride myself on being versatile and efficient. It is a delight to explore new possibilities with different directors and artists. - I’m always looking to meet new filmmakers. If you like my work, please feel free to contact me to chat about any upcoming projects big or small, or just to grab a coffee. I would love to hear from you.
