References as assistant / Career

I learned on the job. I worked for eight years in a product studio, where I learned most of the basics. Serving clients such as Tropicana Beverages, Donzi Boats.

I lived a few years in Japan and have experience on Japanese crews. I speak Japanese well enough to work on sets. I have worked on shoots for DENTSU (agency), Miki House, Kirin Beer.

As a photo assistant and lighting tech, I have worked for many great photographers when they

come to Tampa on shoots for:
Tampa Bay Rays
Toronto Blue Jays
Tampa Bay Buccanneers
NFL Films
Munroe and Main
Norvell Jefferson
Trans Siberian Orchestra

And sometimes I get to shoot a little bit. I am primarily interested in sports and entertainment. I particularly enjoy technical lighting challenges and stop action setups. I shoot sports for University of South Florida, Spartan Race, and Getty.

I can't wait to get my hands on a Phantom high speed camera.
