About This Class

In this class, we discover the benefit of working to achieve results in camera. This means knowing how to look at your model's features and bring out the best of them while shooting. Before going to post processing, we first have to look at how to shoot a face. 

It will focus on the relationship between focal length and height. How do your subject's features change looking at eye level compared to the three inches above and below that level? This class will allow you to begin thinking in a different way of taking images. Not just about compression, bokeh or framing but the angle as well. 

Be creative, daring and take great photos!

Lifestyle & Travel Photographer

A love of film is a given when beginning to look at a career in the industry. It was a given when I was named after Indiana Jones as well but that's a whole other story. The desire to work in the industry hit me like a truck watching Malick's Tree of Life

I entered the camera department because I couldn't do it. When I entered it, I didn't know where to begin. I had no knowledge of how to work a camera or the principles behind it. However, I knew I wanted to learn how to create the images we see on screen and fall in love with. However, it was important not just to have a vision but be able to execute it. Using the technical, practical, and creative application of camera, lighting and collaboration to realize a vision.

My passion and enthusiasm for the camera department has led me to travel over the past three years trying to learn all I can about the camera department and its industry. I have been working with a variety of film companies (shoutout to my Vantage family) being trained in optics, camera and their respective accessories. Learning lighting and becoming a voyeur on some fantastic mentor's sets (sending love to David Miller and Alexander Gruszynski) and finally, freelance assisting, operating and DPing on short films and a few documentary projects overseas.
