As a self-proclaimed lover of winter, snow and the crisp cold air that comes with it, heading to the Arctic was a bucket list item. I’ve always been fascinated by the polar regions and I am beyond fortunate to have been able to actually check one location in the Arctic off my list. First impressions […]

When I shared the photos of my delivery on social (taken with my iPhone), I had a number of folks asking “Why did you choose the R6 over the R5?” so I thought I’d cover that here today (and why I decided to upgrade from . Here we go:

If I’m not working in the camera department or as a project manager/producer, I often get asked to work on productions as a grip, gaffer, or BTS photo operator. Over the course of my career, I have been able to build up a skill set that enables me to juggle these responsibilities. I am based out of Columbus, Ohio. Out in the midwest, it’s not uncommon to work with people who can multitask.
