My version of traveling light. Today, for work in Pittsburgh.
A few years ago I spent several hours in the Pittsburgh airport waiting for a delayed flight. I passed the time taking several silly selfies, including one with this dapper fellow who is still right where I left him. Apparently George Washington is still waiting for his flight home.
I've worked in TV and video production since 1995.
Since 2005, I've been a freelance D.P. (Director of Photography - i.e. cameraman) based in Boston. Previously, I worked in news, where I learned to work fast, light when necessary, and shoot for the edit.
My career has given me a wide range of hands-on experience in many aspects of video production. My specialties: DP, lighting cameraman, shooting video, lighting, ENG audio, linear and nonlinear video editing, field producing, still photography.
I've shot all kinds of projects including documentaries; network programs and news; live shots; travel, home improvement, reality, fishing, and cooking shows; as well as surgeries; corporate videos; and multi-camera events. I also work as a field audio technician.
Note that I can light and shoot for many different styles. Often I do all the camera work, lighting, and sound while working with a producer.
I am comfortable working as a one man band, in a small crew, or with a large group. I am familiar with nearly every camera available from high end full-size broadcast HD cameras to DSLRs and HD palm-corders.
