CinematogrApheR & Gaffer
I have worked as a cinematographer, gaffer, and grip on feature and short films, commercials, fashion shoots, and music videos.
As a cinematographer, I study the script and inspect every element of the film. Before working on a shot list, I am thinking about the overall mood of each scene as well as each character's mental state.
From there, I work side by side with the director to light and frame each scene in order to tell a fitting visual narrative. I often like to light very stylistically with harder, higher contrast lighting, but can light to look very natural and minimal as well.
