It started when I was about five or six years old when my parents bought me a small camera. I took to it pretty quickly, and they even put together a makeshift darkroom for me at the age of six.
I took pictures everywhere, and got to a point where I started eyeing a more high-end camera. I tried mowing lawns and doing odd jobs as a kid, but never made enough money to get that big prize I was fixated on. But, I would still go to the camera store everyday and dream.
I ended up purchasing a camera more in my price range, and was able to learn more skills. I started taking pictures for the school paper and quickly became known as “the guy with the camera.”
The passion never died, so when I was 19 I started a small photography and real estate publishing business in North Carolina. I steadily grew the business and eventually landed Disney as one of my clients, so ended up moving to Orlando Florida. Working with such a major company afforded me the luxury of working with the best creatives, crew, talent and equipment possible. That’s where I started working with Steadicam and started traveling the country as a Steadicam operator and aerial cinematographer.
We opened a second office in Las Vegas in 2004 which has been a tremendous success and after 14 years we’ve decided to reopen a Orlando office with our company headquarters located in beautiful Winter Park, FL. With both locations running at full capacity we’re now able to have a presence on both East and West coast.
I’ve traveled from coast-to-coast receiving extensive hands-on Steadicam training even from the inventor himself. I’ve learned from some of the most talented and well-respected Steadicam operators in the world.
I’ve taken lots of courses, but nothing beats real world training in our business.
I do. I continually provide workshops in Las Vegas, Hollywood, Atlanta, Orlando, Miami and the Caribbean. In some cases we’ve even conducted workshops where the client’s company was located due to their offices being far from any major city. Our workshops include camera operating, cinematic style for UAS drone operators, stabilizer systems for aspiring Steadicam operators, how to shoot live broadcasts, just to name a few. Check out our workshops and know we’re able to tailor the workshop curriculum to meet the clients goals.
Our crew of professional film and television professionals have years of experience in commercials, live events, multicam, narrative film production, video production, photography, drone operators and more. We are all passionate about our work, and have learned to adapt to any situation. You will not find more creative and dependable production teams in , Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Bahamas, the Caribbean or anywhere else.
Having been in the business for more than 30 years, I’ve worked with some of the largest companies in the world, traveling internationally and throughout the United States for clients such as Dreamworks, Viacom, Warner Bros, Hilton Hotels, Sony, HBO, Disney, MTV, Marriott Hotels, CBS, NBC, BBC and more.
