I'm available for hire as a freelance DP or camera operator. And I can connect you with more crew...
Typically I'm asked to work as a Director of Photography or Camera Operator. Sometimes with gear, sometimes not. And I'm often asked to provide a Sound Tech with audio gear to create a two-person team. I work with several excellent local sound mixers, gaffers, and grips...and can put together a crew that's just right for your job. I like to create a team that's talented, efficient, friendly, and collaborative.
My smartphone is your direct connection to me. I'm usually able to answer or respond right away. But if you happen to call while I'm shooting on location, I'll return your call just as soon as possible.
My standard rates for local shoots in the San Francisco Bay Area are based on a 10-hour day. That usually means "portal to portal"...but we can discuss the drive time and distance and then determine how many hours we would have to shoot on site without running into extra charges.
I recognize that choosing the right crew makes all the difference on a video project. It's not just the quality of the work we do, but also how we go about getting the job done. My goal is to be a crew that you'll enjoy working with, and that you will want to invite us back again.
