Cinematography / Photography


As a native of San Diego, I'm able to find unique locations for film settings and background plates that would otherwise be overlooked. Some locations are well-known spots that are highly underrated or still underused, others are hidden gems around in local haunts, surrounding areas, and scattered throughout the city in various neighborhoods. I specialize in finding locations that stand-in for other parts of the nation, globally, and not of this earth. I like to look outside the box for distinct storytelling locations. Because, I'm always scouting for my own productions, I usually keep an eye out for specific design elements that can be at home in any genre I'm writing for. I tend to look for unique cinematic elements and perspectives that contain various visual sight-lines. There's so many factors involved from the creative to the logistical, here's just as few; whether the location is walkable and near commercial settings, is somewhat remote and/or needs various means of transport for off-road entry, has existing lighting, natural lighting features, restricted hours, nearby residents for noise control issues, has long or short term parking limits, has access to electricity and water for (sanitary and humane) trailer hook-ups to accommodate necessary comforts for crew and talent.

San Diego is still considered virgin territory for filmmaking, even though its heyday dates back to silent-films, pre-code, classic cinema, and of course the latest cinematic resurgence in the 1980s and early 90s. The city is best known for its beaches, military bases, and mild weather yet there are other cinematic sides to this town that far exceed the typical sunset and surfer silhouettes used to advertise the city for year-round tourism. San Diego features unique architecture; historical landmarks to contemporary builds that draw upon vintage eras and visions of the future. Due to the varied topographical nature of the city, visual looks can be numerous especially if you know where to perch yourself. Sometimes the best finds are when I'm out doing errands, attending events, or just cruising through town. I shoot footage for my own productions so I'm always finding more places to film.

I've also scouted locations in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, England, and France. I store a photographic catalogue of all my locations for reference.
I post various scouting outtakes on Instagram. Cinematography and locations featured in my productions can be viewed at reels and design pages. You can also check out my photography galleries for more examples of my work. Feel free to peruse the links while this page is being constructed. I'll be posting new images throughout the year.

If you're interested in my eye, don't hesitate to
contact me for an appointment or Skype meeting to discuss your production needs. I can assemble a digital location look-book for producers, directors, DPs, production designers, art directors, and location-managers.

On May 18th 2018, I became an apprentice member of
LMGI. While accumulating more hours to upgrade my new status, I'm available to scout in San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County and abroad for music videos, commercials, shorts, feature films, television serials, feature animation, video games, fashion and product photoshoots, architectural and design magazines, advertising and marketing, and real-estate.
