Custom Gear To Order
Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you - I'm a gear junkie. And while I own a lot of my own gear, I don't determine what I use on a shoot, by what I own. Each job has a unique set of needs, and those needs determine the gear we use.
The Secret To Crews
I love hearing producers and directors say " I wish I could shoot with this crew on every job. It's the best compliment I can think of - it means we have put together the right chemistry of

Ever notice how some shoots go so smoothly, while others, well lets just say "not so much".

Do What You Love - the rest will come.
Every Day is different - it's why I love this business. Someone told me they recently heard a crew member ask to point me out on the set, to which she replied, "just look for the guy smiling the widest". It's true, I have more fun than just about anyone on a set. I live and breath production. And if I'm not developing, shooting or editing something, I'm either teaching a class about developing, shooting or editing or I'm writing an article or book about developing, shooting or editing.
I may shoot a commercial one week with a Sony F55, Arri Alexa or Red Epic, a documentary the next week with an Canon C300 or 5D MKIII, or reality show with a Sony F800 or Panasonic 3300. I've shot time-lapse, hyperlapse, slow-mo, motion control, tiltshift, HDR, beauty shots, product shots, food shots, and aerials. I've strapped cameras to planes, trains and automobiles, climbed mountains, trees, rooftops and even water towers to get the right shot. I've worked with big crews, small crews, my gear, your gear and rental gear.
Throughout it all I'm still the one having the most fun and smiling the widest.
