About this pro
I have 20 years in Media as a Director of Photography (Videographer), working in both the Private and Public sector. My work has included Red Carpet events, Sporting events in the US and Internationally. Producing and creating news and entertainment segments, training and demonstration videos. I am a seasoned videographer and photographer with the ability to edit as needed. Currently my work can be seen via Fox News, and across NYC networks as a pool shooter for news outlets. I am a seasoned coordinator of production events, leading a team or producing solo, shooting, interviewing, getting b-roll, lighting and editing. I most enjoy about what I do is that I do not see it as work, but as a labor of love. Each production is an opportunity to learn something new, make new firends and produce a beautiful piece of work for the client, that exceeds their expectations. For me no two jobs are the same so it keeps what I do interesting.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is as follows, depending on the event $650 for (4 hours) with camera, $1000 for full day (4 to 8 hours) with camera (wireless or wired mics for interviews or plugged into side unit) On camera light (Additional lighting) $200. Editing available on request.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First I will have a phone conversation with the client to see what their needs are, and to see if I am able to meet their needs. After the initial phone meeting, I would submit my proposal (Outline) of what I can provide and the cost and timetable of the turnaround to the final product. Once that has been agreed on we will meet to sign contracts and the deposit for the job would be made to secure the job. On the completion of the job the product would be presented to the client and the final payment collected.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Education and training is an ongoing process. I have a degree in Television and Radio as well as a certified Audio Engineer. I am trained in Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro, and constantly updating my skills by taking online tuturals.
