About Dennis

Started off with 35mm film photography back in 2006 and started to realize this kind of art was my passion, eventually I grew onto medium format and became addicted to 120mm film. After a few years in film photography, I expanded onto digital photography and my eye for photography later on faded away and started picking up on video. Since video was a whole new world to me yet pretty similar, I was able to learn quickly. Expanding my knowledge on lighting, color contrast, motivated movements, motivated lighting setups, etc. From there, I knew this is what I wanted to do. Originally started with skateboarding videos and grew onto automotive-documentary style videos and for easy money did a whole bunch of weddings, commercials, corporate work, etc. Eventually I made my way into the narrative side of film making and hope to expand my set of skills and meet others along my journey.
