cinematographer using 35mm film ARRIflex camera


I am graduate of the Toronto Film School and freelance cinematographer.

My work with award-winning directors had been recognised and showcased by numerous film festivals around the world, including Sitges Film Festival, Amsterdam Film Festival, Kinotavr Film Festival, Barcelona International Film Festival and many more.

My clients include Adidas, National Geographic, Tretyakov’s Gallery, Gillette, FOX, Nissan and S7 Airlines.

I pride myself in my enthusiastic nature, ability to accomplish objectives and my ambition to always improve productivity and efficiency when working in the camera department.



Once upon a time, my crew and I climbed up a small mountain with an ARRI 35BL, a tripod and a lens package. Just to get an establishing shot at sunrise. It was awesome. The crew loved it.

Other on-set accomplishments include: 

  • single-take Movi and Steadicam pirouettes,

  • hanging out of windows as well as moving cars

  • "lighting the hell out that scene." (References available upon request.)

  • working in scorching heat, freezing cold and with a sprained ankle.

Full list of skills and accomplishments is listed in my Résumé.

Résumé and Showreel are available upon request
