The short version: Digital Photography and Video Production
The long version: My preference is to support the creative efforts of others through my equipment and knowledge of that equipment, as well as collaboration on the overall ideas and approaches. Whether I need to provide everything end to end for my own production, or act as a camera assistant, at this time I am happy to do whatever is required and helpful to you. I am, admittedly, new to this industry. I am also enthusiastic, well equipped for most things, and have a deep technical background which helps me learn quickly when faced with new situations. Probably the best thing I bring to the table is a different approach. I am happy to learn new ideas and approaches while looking for new and creative ways to accomplish a given task.
It should be understood I do not operate in a ‘promise everything and then learn it’ mode. If I am not confident I can provide the services I say so up front. If you still want me for that responsibility it is with the understanding I am not proficient and there should be no surprises in that regard. I do not promise what I am not confident I can deliver. Below is the most honest list of capabilities you will find in this industry…
- Motion Control via the KesslerCrane CineDrive system. Details around this will be provided soon, but I have 20 feet of track for the system, and pan/tilt/slider/focus and zoom control. Depending on the shoot the method used to support the track will vary. With sufficient notice this can be solved easily.
- Camera Operator using my Canon 5d Mark 3. If not using my camera I would need time with your camera of choice to learn it so I am not offering that as yet. At this time I do not have a shoulder rig/stabilization for the camera, so this would be tripod mounted, slider mounted, or motion control mounted. I will probably be adding the MoviM5 or a basic shoulder rig soon if the need arises, it has not yet though.
- I can fill the gap if audio is needed, but it is not a primary offering. I have the Sennheiser MKH-416 shotgun mic, smart lav microphone (works great with an iphone and the rhode recording app, very clear and solid) and the Zoom H6, and a boom pole but this would be a last resort for production situations.
- Photography: This spans the gamut from simple headshots to family photos, realestate photos, architectural, commercial, product, etc. Events, like weddings, probably not, but if you are willing, I will be happy to do my best for you.
