I am very familiar with Nikon, Canon, Sony, Phase One, and Mamiya camera systems. I am a Phase One Certified Professional. I am capable with Profoto, Broncolor, Alien Bees, Jokers, and Litemat lighting equipment. Along with photo I am also proficient in video production workflow. Another skillset I have is shooting film 35mm to large format and scanning the film along with color correction.
I can efficiently use Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere, Aftereffects, Illustrator, InDesign and Capture One Pro.
never left the country but I have a passport and I’d love to travel if i had the opportunity.
On the job I am always alert and trying to predict the needs of the photographer before they ask me to do something for them. I am physically fit and able to carry heavy loads to and from location. When on set we are all working towards the same goal so it’s important to be friendly and be a team player.
References as assistant / Career
I graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a BFA in Advertising Photography. During school I had access to a plethora of photo equipment which allowed me to become familiar with many different pieces of tech and gives me the confidence to be able to learn a new piece of gear quickly while working on set.
I have never been a permanent assistant but the photographers I have assisted for consistently ask me to work for them again after the first gig. I have assisted for Richard Schultz, Christina Emilie, Catalina Kulczar, and Seth Abel.
I am able to work any job but I specialize in portrait and fashion photography.
