Recently finished a day of 3 camera cinematography with Cumbo, Inc. for the largest specialty jewelry retailer in the US, UK and Canada (top secret for now.) Pictured here are camera operator Neal Ten Eyck and myself on the set. Amazing makeup artist Josselyn Scott was on hand to finesse our 8 pairs of interview subjects and I am super stoked to see the finished piece.

Just wrapped a week of shoot days for Niagara USA. We got to visit the big Niagara County tourist hot spots with our talent to see and feel it all first hand in an immersive cinematographic experience. I can’t decide if the helicopter ride, or getting pounded by Niagara Falls was my favorite, but I know the gorge hike was the most fun :-p
Got out to the Lauren Fix garage a little while ago to serve as chief lighting technician for a series of stills which will be used to market and advertise Chevron’s gas additive, Techron.
Once again, I spent a lot of time staring at cool cars and of course, that Ducati @_@
I operated camera on these recent spots, one for ECMC and one for Mercy Flight.
Spent some time in DPost’s production facility recently.
Served as cinematographer on Lynn Wessel Keane for State Supreme Court’s new commercial.
Participated in the Buffalo, NY 48 Hour Film Project, as producer, editor, and cinematographer.
Operated camera for Rhea Anna’s latest spot for ECMC.
Backed up Eric Frick in Pittsburgh for some retro Excellus BlueCross BlueShield stills.
Spent a day at the Auditorium Theater in Rochester with my double Sony EX1R rig shooting a simulated Ted Talk for a pharmaceutical company.
Recent work for New Era Cap directed by Peter Cumbo with extra special motion graphics and related artistry by John Long and B-Camera action from JR Kraus:
I spent a few days shooting footage with Eric Frick a few months back for Marble + Rye restaurant in Buffalo, NY. Day one was a bit of a field trip as we followed restaurateurs Michael Dimmer and Christian Willmott out to Arden Farm in East Aurora for a little walkaround with organic farmer Dan Roelofs and then jogged over to a nearby park to document the harvesting of the ramps (wild leeks), or “ramping” as they call it.
We spent day two as flies on the wall during a normal day/night in the restaurant and even managed to squeeze in some sexy food cinematography just in time for the happy hour and early dinner crowd.
Over 4,000 views on social media in a day and a half – not bad.
