I've had an interesting journey shooting with Zeiss optics over the years. Particularly looking back at the first shoot with Ultra Primes and the very first time I was able shoot with the T1.3 Master Primes.
I use all sorts of lenses for many reasons. Different brands, vintage glass, Cine-Modded by Duclos Lenses for motion picture use, etc... At the moment I'm using the Zeiss Otus 55mm and 85mm f/1.4 primes for stills and motion work on RED Epic Dragon and Canon 5DsR camera bodies. Also, I've been very impressed by the Compact Zooms since their release and have been working with them for a long while now. I've added the 28-80mm T/2.9 into my motion arsenal which will be perfect for the upcoming RED Weapon 8K Dragon with it's slightly larger than VistaVision sized sensor.
This also comes during a very special week. I started working in entertainment about 18 years ago doing odd grip and testing jobs. 16 years ago in early July I got what I consider my "big break" into working on feature films. This happens at a particularly great time as I'm on the road shooting for a couple of months on a very special commercial project.
For those of you who have been following my work for a while, thank you for the support. For the new faces, have a browse around. The website has been recently redesigned and I've uploaded some of my favorite stills and fun motion pieces over the years. When I get back in town mid-August I'll be adding more artwork and motion work. It's been interesting looking back at all of these images over the years. I've been working with cameras and the pencil for all of my adult life. Lot's of great memories behind many of these images with some amazing individuals involved as well.
