Fusing light and movement through time and space
Capturing photography in motion is equally about composition, using light and seeing the story unfold in front of the lens – as it is understanding the unique combination of sensor types, the camera glass, what it does and everything that goes in between; characteristics, emotions and memories, cause, what story are we telling?
While it’s easy to talk about looks it’s way more interesting to think about tonality. How light reflects of skin, the richness and depth of ocean water or how a mindset can expand into a scene through colour – or the lack thereof. How we see tells us so much about what we see – colour grading embraces that vision.
IMMERSIVE ENVIRONMENTS & VR
There is an equal number of methods to communicate as there are ways to experience. Every road to immersion is driven by an agile development process, from creative direction to implementation. While vision and code make it happen it is by asking how and why that take us there. We do both.
Storytelling with a vision
Storytelling isn’t just something I do, it’s who I am. It is said that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole, and I firmly believe this stands true in the collaborative art of filmmaking. Contributing with equal parts of passion and vision I purposefully celebrate co-creation, collectively transforming ideas into true experiences. As a maker of images I am compelled to touch lives in an inspiring way, as a human I strive to leave lasting impression both on and off set. Comfortable in chaos and trusted in the creative process – I am genuinely excited to bring stories to life.
