I believe DJs should add their style and musical interpretation and take nothing away from an event. I don't speak on a microphone unless it's called for, and I know how to read a crowd to change the playlist to keep them on the dance floor. I let the music get the people on their feet and don't make over-the-top announcements or play games. I customize my playlist for every client, and with a list of just a few songs, I can easily build the entire feel for an event.
I love experimenting with and exploring equipment, both old and new. From super 8mm film to full 1080 HD, I enjoy the workflow and technicality of making it all mesh together. I geek out on things like time lapse shots and changing film frames per second to create a desired effect.
I take great care in composing my shots and telling a story with every frame. I love taking hours of raw footage and making it into something moving and worthy of multiple viewings. To see the finished product after being involved in every step along the way is a feeling of true accomplishment.
