I work in LA and the NYC area, I have excellent experience in studio and outdoor natural lighting. I know 99% of all lighting equipment and most cameras. I work very hard, and am not a complainer. If there is a problem I try to resolve it or come up with a plan b. I'm friendly, not pretentious, and nothing is beneath me from taking the trash to getting dirty or wet.
I'm available to work as an DIT, 1st, 2nd, or Set PA. I have experience working in a production office, handling crew hires, insurance, rental paperwork, permits, and producing shoots.
I'm used to working hard for long hours, and prepare for everything just in case.
Tethering: I use Capture One, Phocus, and Lightroom. I can correct and process approximately 30gb-50gb a day 1-4k images.
I have card readers for every camera, 10 meters of tethering cables for most cameras, backup for
almost everything I own except the monitor in NYC (I take the train in).
I know how to light scenes, in the studio and use natural light and bounce outdoors. I've worked on fashion catalogs all day with no strobes and had very consistent light over a 12 hour day.
I've worked in freezing cold to a 127 degree desert shoot.
I want to work and I only know how to work hard. I don't mess around with my phone or social media, I do whatever is necessary to keep the shoot going and have the clients smiling. I can take orders and give orders, it doesn't matter to me. If you need someone who is reliable and works from the moment they arrive, please consider me.
Ps in LA I'm able to work anywhere that's driving distance and in the east coast I'm able to work in NYC, Boston, or Ct.
