The Director of Photography You Deserve

  • Takes direction, understands visual storytelling, versed in composition & lighting.
  • Anticipates needs, client & crew friendly, work is “what you do when you are not shooting”.
  • Skillful lighter, from beautiful interview setups - to feature movies – to quick ‘pickup’ shots on the run.

In a marketplace that is rich with talent behind the camera, Robert is head and shoulders above them all. What makes him so special to any production is he not only delivers exactly what is asked, he sees things through the lens like nobody else and delivers it better than expected.

I know that when I hire Robert, there is never a need to second guess his vision. His ability to capture the project through his cameras makes post-production so much easier and, actually, enjoyable.  His talent allows me to truly enjoy every stage of production.

Robert has always been my “First Call” and will always be.”
