Shooting in the studio or on location, I have a full arsenal of equipment.  Both strobe and continuous lighting, a plethora of light modifiers and the ability to use them to create whatever look the client wants.


Lighting, shooting, editing, I can do it all.  Producing cost effective yet creative video to aid the sale of products and services, covering events and producing film to promote events.


Post Production

Capture One, Photoshop, Premier, After Effects, I have excellent knowledge and experience using them all, to produce eye catching stills and video.
