A love for photography and a background in post production led me down a circuitous path to becoming a cinematographer; now I can't imagine doing anything else. I primarily do commercial work but short films and music videos are certainly the most fun as they let you play and push things in ways a commercial client rarely will. I love the unique challenge presented by every shoot but jobs where I really get to play with lighting are definitely my favorite. 

My favorite Tokina product is definitely the Vista Prime lenses. They have an amazing look and feel with incredibly low breathing and chromatic aberration without feeling clinical. It is remarkable Tokina was able to produce such an amazing lens at such an affordable price.
