My cinematography can be characterized by precise framing, careful color selection and deliberate use of shadows. I love working in low-key lighting schemes, but I steer away from the current trend of making the image too dark to actually see. Instead, I opt for smart contrast ratios that provide the picture with shape and structure. I've shot a diverse array of narratives and am highly versatile, enjoying both vivid neons and naturalistic palettes. One of my strengths is creating custom looks consistent with the aesthetic of the project and needs of the story.
