DP & Color Reel

Lots of shots from jobs big and small over the last decade. The opening shot shows that being a DP isn’t just about physical world cameras but 3D virtual ones as well where you have complete control of camera, lighting and color.

Short Form : Meet The Baumanns

This is a business doc on Wisconsin’s largest Ginseng grower. Shot over a year to capture all the seasons and processes in creating this popular export product. 

4K anamorphic lenses added a great look to this project. Shot with minimal crew and gear over several months to capture the entire project. This video highlights the artist and his inspirations in completing this mural.

Social Issues

I’m an active supporter of various social causes and issues. The LGBQT+ community, drug endangered children, charities and services supporting those in need. 

Things That Fly

I specialize in shooting aircraft in flight. Not from the ground or with a drone, but up there in another plane. It requires working with a skilled pilot you trust. The results of planning with safety in mind, communications and skill get some amazing shots no one else is has. Worth a watch, no CGI involved.
