Second Shooting

Finding a reliable & experienced second shooter can be very difficult. Yet, in most cases, absolutely necessary. Regardless of how seasoned & knowledgable you are, you can't be in 2 places at once. Sure, you can set up a tripod in multiple places, then cross your fingers that it doesn't get moved by a child, that Uncle Jim, intrigued by his new 8 megapixel cell phone doesn't stand right in front of your camera. Or that everything in a continual light changing environment remains correctly exposed & everyone (or thing) remains properly composed. This is where a second shooter is required, not optional. The pace of a wedding for example, is New York rush hour. No replays or do overs either.


Most Cinematographers are connected. We value the community of creatives, our network & networth  But, in most cases, seasoned Cinematographers are unwilling to budge on pay or style. This is where I gladly come in. Knowledgable, dependable, friendly, & flexible. I feel comfortable in any shooting environment, regardless of the nature of the set. I also adapt to your preference of style. Movement? Still? Creative? Clean? I can achieve the look you desire.
