I have been a professional cinematographer and gaffer for over 14 years. Its my passion, its my life. It's also my full time job, not a hobby. I grew up being fascinated with the art of cinematography, and since I can remember I've had a camera of some sort in my hands, from stills photography to my first movie camera when I was young.
My passion runs deep, I like to preserve and protect the cinematic process and though digital has taken over for the most part, it doesn't mean that cinematography should be taken lightly.
