I've been working as a documentary and political event photographer on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC since the mid-1990s and as a DOP at a museum near the Senate Hart Building. I've been exhibited at the Library of Congress for my work during the aftermath of 9/11 in the DC area, and have photographed Heads-of-State, members of congress, civil and human rights leaders and numerous celebrities.
Although currently on medical leave due to a near-fatal post-operative infection following routine surgery, I am working on a documentary related to the issues of violence against children and the failures of our court system, social services and society at-large to protect and support the most unrecognized category of victims of crime in the US. I am interested in collaborating with like-minded people who are also working on child abuse and the toll that it takes on its victims, our medical system, criminal justice system, and society. While most of my experience rests with still photography, I am transitioning to video/documentary filmmaking with relative ease but can always use the advise and expertise of others who have successfully completed these types of projects. I'm editing in Final Cut but am looking to find additional information on precise color management in cinematic projects, as well as work in Motion Graphics. I'm skilled in Adobe products such as Photoshop and ran a digital imaging lab on Capitol Hill, so my understanding of color management issues is far from elementary.
I also build early Delta Blues and Depression-era instruments that can make for unique soundtracks -- please contact me if you are invested in hearing more about these instruments.
