Hello Sunny,

I am writing to express my interest in joining the team of your upcoming feature film as the Director of Photography. I had previously applied and commented, but am following up as the listing had been updated.

I have been in the industry for nearly 15 years now and have worked on a number of feature films, short films, and more as the Director of Photography.

Two recent feature films I served as the Director of Photography on, Fighting for Freedom (starring Bruce Dern and Kristanna Loken) and Comedy Warriors (starring Zach Galifianakis, Lewis Black, Bob Saget, BJ Novak, and more) were both theatrically and digitally distributed.

I also just wrapped more two features, "Burguesinha" and "Lighthouse Unmanned" are both set for release in 2018

I am an owner/operator of a RED Epic-M Dragon as well as a RED ONE MX. I also own a two ton lighting and grip truck package.

You can view my reel, equipment list, and more on my web site at:

I can also be found on IMDb at:

If you could get back to me when you have an opportunity to do so, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing back from you.
