INTRODUCTION

Based in New York City, I am a longtime photographer shooting actors, dancers, singers, bands, recording artists, personalities, models, executives, kids and families. As a cinematographer and videographer, I shoot dramatic scenes for actor showreels, web commercials, mini-docs, non-profit and political message videos, real estate and industrial videos, "expert" and instructional videos as well as shooting multi-cam setup live music and events. As a TV producer and director, I oversee community/public affairs talk shows and culture-centric shows using a state-of-the-art TV studio and I am currently developing several TV shows in the travel, food and culture genres, an educational children's show and a public access platform for NYC politicians. Flipping back and forth between these different work modes makes my job incredibly exciting. 

My passions of music, travel, hiking & biking... a past career as a professional musician... an educational background in engineering... and being surrounded by a family of artists and musicians... all influence my photographic vision. After all these years of shooting, I still really love what I do and feel excited every time I prepare for a session and pick up my still camera or cinema rig.

SCROLL DOWN THIS PAGE  to browse my various portfolios of photo and video work and then say hello using the contact form at the very end of this page. This site is geared towards entertainers and individuals. If you are a company looking for larger productions, please contact me and I will direct you to one of our other commercial websites.

I have surrounded myself with an incredible production team of talented artists to bring your project from concept to reality. I look forward to working with you and building a long lasting business relationship.

Best Regards

CASTING

TV  SHOW  HOSTS

( no experience necessary )

We are currently seeking several TV hosts for travel, food and culture shows in development for network and direct digital distribution platforms. One of the shows' co-producers has already sold shows to the Food Network. Previous TV experience is not required but having a upbeat personality, loving the camera and being organized is. Speaking another language in addition to English would be an asset for some of the shows (accents when speaking English are OK). We are also interested in speaking to those people with a specialized knowledge or talent in which a show can be developed around.

If interested, please use the contact page and include some detailed information about yourself (interests, hobbies, talents, education area, related job experience) to help match you with a show in development or maybe a new show will be developed based on your unique interests and talent. Please include a direct link to your on-line photo or we can provide you an email address to send a current photo. In the "Are you replying for a casting" question line of our contact form, please type... TV show host. If we gave you our card, please write the location and the circumstance or some discussion details.

"Personality/energy/attitude/interest is MUCH more important than experience." 

ON-CAMERA  TALENT

To our clients, in addition to our media production services, we offer access to our database of talent both professional/non-professional, with/without agents or managers. We are especially interested in discovering fresh new talent who may not have professional experience but who possess that special sparkle that the camera loves. We are always looking for TV hosts, actors, models and dancers. Off-camera talent including voice-over artists and talented musicians with original song writing abilities are also needed for commercial and film projects.

If interested, please use the contact page and include a direct link to your on-line resume and photo or we can send you an email address to send your resume/photo. In the "Are you replying for a casting" question line of our contact form, please type... on-camera talent.

 

ON-CAMERA  HELP

( no experience necessary )

We are always in need of people (male and female) that enjoy getting involved in front of the camera while we test different concepts/situations and shooting styles to prepare for some of the TV shows/commercials/spec projects. We will give you some footage to post.

If interested, please use the contact page and include some information about your interests and talents to help match you with a current project. Please include a direct link to your on-line photo or we can send you an email address to send a current photo. In the "Are you replying for a casting" question line of our contact form, please type... on-camera help.

"Personality/energy/attitude/interest is MUCH more important than experience."

DOCUMENTARY IDEAS SEARCH

Do you know a person doing something incredible to help others? Met someone struggling to get by that needs help? Have you noticed an injustice or scam? Do you have a story that you feel needs to be told? I have assembled a talented team of producers, writers, investigative journalists and crew and we are always looking to story ideas. All ideas are welcome and may be turned into news stories, video blogs or documentaries (mini to long form). Please use the contact page and include some basic information about your story suggestion.

We look forward to meeting you.

Best Regards

Chris
