About Aaron

In the last several years, I have gratefully experienced a range of film and media productions. From key positions on smaller sets to supporting roles on larger ones, I am dedicated to every assignment that I undertake. My experience consists of serving in camera and lighting departments for film and commercial production studios to VFX work on music videos and network television. I pride myself in working hard in a creative community.

With a certified background in commercial diving combined with my camera experience, I am also an underwater videographer who owns my own diving gear, as well as my own camera and lighting equipment. So please feel free to contact me for a full equipment list.

I am passionate about what I can do and I look forward to collaborating on your next project! Please follow the links for more info, my credits/experience, and to view my work. Thank you.
