You might be wondering, ‘why is your work so dark and contrasty’? Simple answer: Because I love it. But really, I think because my uncle took me to Nightmare on Elm Street when I was 3 years old. Didn’t sleep for a week, but that’s okay - the experience was worth it.


This also explains why I find cinematography a fascinating and powerful art form, that can drag you into a new world and shift your emotional state from one place to another as you go through the journey. The idea that you can change one’s mood by showing images was a big mystery to me, and I wanted to learn more about it.


Titles like ‘Blade, Collateral, The Mask, the X Files, IT, Halloween, Jaws’.. all were addictive experiences. I was 10 when I realized movies don’t just fall out of the sky and that I had to accept the fact that every film I had ever seen was fake. The making of documentary I saw that day spoiled it all, but also taught me something new: the coolest guys on set were around the camera!


And so - here I am, around the camera, crafting new worlds and moods using my framing, lights and motion techniques.
