(Nick) This is a listing of a few types of production that I have worked on as the DP or providing camera crew support or entire camera crew services. My background not only spans camerawork in motion pictures, video cameras, as well, still photography cameras. Aside from the skills of a DP, cameraman & photographer, I am proficient in other applied work experience making myself a stronger hire for a freelancer/contractor. These skills include still photographer, gaffer, location sound, among some other production skills, as I have been a professional since 1990 in production. The ones that are not my complete camera work are noted with the camera crew or role as well, but these examples are few, with the majority my work as a dp/dop.
These samples however do not include every TV production I have ever worked on, however you will get the impression of my extensive experience in production dating to 1990/1991. All the work below is produced via my direct involvement and not borrowed / plagiarized.

Rory McIlroy Pro Golfer Coverage, BMW Championship, Cherry Hills Colorado
This is a group of shots covering professional golfer and world #1 pro golfer (as of 12-2017) at the BMW Championship in Cherry Hills Village Colorado of Rory McIlroy for sports television broadcast. The last interview was a bit tricky as the venue wanted no silks or lighting control at the clubhouse for the last interview, so was the contention of changing sunlight. The interviews relied on microphones whereas the tournament coverage samples, and B Roll relied on the camera mic as a sound recordist with a boom mic is an unwanted intrusion on a golf course if you are trying to get close to the action or tee box. This is a sampling of the entire tournament footage. I also covered other professional golfers in this tournament, as well, have covered professional golf, as well other sports in all aspects as a professional cameraman, and director of photography, as well, in instances for still photography.

This is a sample from the reality television show called “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” airing on E!

This was a 2 man HD video camera crew shoot for Inside Edition recorded in Lakewood CO, a suburb of Denver. One of our segments focused on crime, as well the proximity to a certain business. For this shoot we used 3 GoPro cameras that were dash mounted in the police car. We attempted to persuade for one of the cameras to be used on a differing POV, such as the car, as well it’s background or foreground environment, however the producers were more interested in the shot in the interior of the police car. We did end up passing the other media from an additional camera from a pick up in the same shoot day so we could not incorporate this footage into this scene.
