I have not posted in a while and wanted to share some things with you as I’ve been going through this journey. Being a DP is much more than just operating the camera and getting the shot. It’s more like you are steering the course of what the viewers will see as you are telling the story. It doesn’t necessarily have to be YOUR story but a story. Reveals, angles, movements, depth of fields, all these are just a fraction of the tools that the DP uses to help tell the story.

I was blessed to be a part of some really great projects that taught me more than a few things on telling a story. Since then I’ve been asked to DP on a new project and I’ve been studying the script and the shot list thoroughly to find out how I can bring the director’s story to life and keep the audience engaged! I must admit it’s a litte scary but I’m so up for the challenge! I will keep you posted!
