Most of my shooting and directing work is in the documentary film space, but i’ve also produced commercials, narrative films and music videos as well – you can see some of my favorite moments in my cinematography reel here.
Collection of film work I’ve produced freelancing, as passion projects or with my partners at Northguild.
IN PRODUCTION 2022
CONVERSE x SKY HIGH FARM
We’re working together with Oceans 8 Films to produce a series of short docs for CONVERSE about Sky High Farm in Pine Plains, NY. The 6-part series unfolds over the course of the growing season, meeting the farm workers and food partners that make up this unique, non-profit food operation. Releasing Autumn 2022.
THE RIVER KEEPER
The next feature length documentary from Jon Bowermaster at Oceans 8 Films, The River Keeper tells the story of John Lipscomb, the lone patrol boat captain of the Ian R. Fletcher, working to defend the Hudson River on behalf of public environmental watchdog group, Riverkeeper. Shot almost entirely on – and in – the water, this production presents a lot of logistical challenges while also providing us with long days in the idyllic “office” of the Hudson River! Releasing late 2023, early 2024.
The story of Captain Sam Merrett of the Schooner Apollonia, the only licensed sail freight vessel in the United States. We followed them over their first season in order to piece together their first round trip delivery from Hudson NY to New York City – exploring sail freight as an alternative to fossil fuel transport while also providing a resilient option toward reconsidering our fragile supply chains. Production started on this one just as Covid hit in March 2020, we shot over 2 summers and I cut the film over last winter, check out the film homepage for screening events.
Filmmaking is a team sport – and over my career I’ve played many positions: editor, cinematographer, producer, writer/director. These experiences have honed my skills toward a complete understanding of the creative and technical processes behind making movies, providing me with a holistic understanding that makes the sum of my talent greater than its parts.
These days, I live in New York’s Hudson Valley, spending most of my time freelancing behind a camera and running a production company with my partners at Northguild, which produces content for documentary, narrative and commercial projects.
I’m interested in issues regarding our environment and food systems – particularly the communities, political forces and social structures that surround it.
Wether you are a director/producer, agency or commercial client, I’m available for hire as a cinematographer. If you’re looking for a production company and a crew, you should check out the company I started with two other talented filmmakers, Northguild.
I’ve got a versatile skill set oriented around serving as a Director of Photography, Gaffer, or 1st Assistant Camera. I’m also a fully insured and licensed FAA UAV drone operator with years of flying experience.
