I am a cinematographer with a passion for time lapse photography and aerial UAV cinematography.
I have gained extensive experience behind the camera which started with Rajotte Productions in Winnipeg in 2006 where I assisted and operated cameras on multiple shoots. They recognized me as a promising young videographer early on and mentored me to help shape my skill set. I attended the Media Production program at Assiniboine Community College in Brandon, Manitoba, while freelancing on corporate shoots and live hockey productions with the Brandon Wheat Kings on the side. Once I received my diploma, I moved to Calgary where I worked as a camera operator and director of photography on projects that have taken me across Canada and the US including documentaries, television series, and corporate productions for networks including CBC, CTV, Sportsnet, Discovery Channel, CMT Canada, Animal Planet, The Cooking Channel, and more.
My love of cinematography and aviation have combined to create of love of drones or UAV's in video production. I have been flying UAV's for video since 2013 and own a DJI Inspire 2, a highly advanced UAV cinematography system. I hold standing special flight operation certificates and valid liability insurance, exceeding the minimum amount required by Transport Canada. Safety and security is paramount when it comes to UAV operations and I am a proud operator of safe and legal operations.
