About me:

I was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. During my time here I've been lucky enough to develop some great community roots and am very proud to be heavily involved with various charities across the city. Previous to the cinematography industry I played hockey in the Ontario Hockey League with the Plymouth Whalers and Sarnia Sting.

Throughout my life I've always had a passion for movies and cinematography. From how certain shots were filmed to the special effects I've always wanted to be a part of the film and photography world.  I am fully self taught and pride myself on my work ethic.  From creating storyboards and dialogue to filming and post production I am involved in every project every step of the way with my client. I am a hands on type of person. 

I created Skytography Inc. out of passion not necessity. I love expressing myself visually through my videos as well as meeting creative people along the way and helping them achieve their visions. If you're passionate about your project and would like to collaborate with someone who can portray that passion through cinematography you've come to the right place.

Our equipment is constantly changing. As technology continues to evolve and provide indie videographers with unbelievable tools for high quality footage, we upgrade our equipment with the changing tide. In doing so we are able to provide our clients the absolute best in quality images and video. 

 Recently one of our long term goals of owning a Red camera became a reality in less than a year of being in business. Red is one of the leading companies for cinematic videography with cameras reaching up to 8k in quality. Our newest member of the Skytography arsenal is our RED EPIC-W. This camera reaches image quality of up to 8K at 30 frames per second.  With this camera we are able to produce unchallenged image quality.  In fact RED cameras are used in Hollywood on a regular basis to shoot some of your favourite movies such as; The Revenant, The Martian and Jurassic World to name a few. 

For our aerial cinematography we are currently using our DJI Inspire 1 pro equipped with the Zenmuse X5 camera, DJI Phantom 4 pro and the DJI Mavic 2 Pro. These drones are at the top of their class and can reach resolutions of up to 4K.
