Before learning the art of steadicam, I started as a camera operator, learning all the differences between shot types, compositions, lenses
and what each one convey to the audience.
My job whether a camera or a steadicam operator is to follow the visual language established by the director and cinematographer
and use my tools and creativity to push the story forward.
Because, at the end of the day, steadicam is just a tool, in the wrong hands it's meaningless, but in the right hands it creates magic !
Yes I'm young but I'm experienced, and had the chance to work on the most prestigious sets and most talented crews in my region.
You will find lots of operators out there, but each has a unique style because operating is a mental game and Steadicam is a personal instrument.
I'm a certified operator by Tiffen Steadicam® and the first lebanese member in the Steadicam operators association.
So, please consider a hard working 188cm guy for your next project.
