As a cinematographer I translate stories to visuals. I love to create atmospheric cinematic images that authentically portray a feeling and deliver a message. For me, it is a pleasure to create an original concept with my client and produce a film that is goal oriented. If the project requires specific expertise or more manpower than I can provide by myself, I select a team of people I trust to complete the project within the agreed timeframe and budget. Creating films is an art, it’s a beautiful process. For any questions, contact me at

Having a camera in the sky can make all the difference. Drones enable us to create shots from inspiring locations and with camera movements that would otherwise be impossible. We have all seen epic drone footage. It’s a thrill. Depending on the requirements of a project I can fly drones with interchangeable lenses and dual operation or fly with a compact single pilot drone.

I am RPA-L certified allowing me to fly in controlled airspace and on locations off limits to people with standard (ROC-L) certification. Contact me for specific details, laws and limitations.

If I can be of assistance for your production as a drone pilot or payload operator, do send me an e-mail at

In order to deliver high quality content, I use premium equipment. I own the items listed below, which I use on many of my productions. When equipment is required that I don’t own, I make use of my relationships with a number of equipment rental agencies.

  • DSMC2 RED SW – Dragon 5k
  • Zeiss Milvus Planar 85mm f1.4, Milvus Distagon 50mm f1.4, Milvus Distagon 35mm f1.4 & Zeiss Distagon 21mm f2.8

Each production is unique and therefore requires a tailor made approach. Whether I’m working by myself, in a small team or on productions with large crews, I aim on efficiency to reach our goals swiftly. Join me behind the scenes to get a glimpse of the atmosphere during productions:





Film is a fascinating craft. What intrigues me is how vividly a story can be visualized through film. I am passionate about creating films with a cinematic and atmospheric feel by capturing the essence of stories in abstract yet targeted ways. Films evoke feelings. Film is an extremely powerful art form.
