Owner / Director of Photography
I started Tight Line Films in 2013 with a GoPro. Now ten years later things are quite a bit different. After years of filming construction sites and fly fishing projects I took a job as DP/Editor at "BC Outdoors Sport Fishing TV" where I filmed and edited 3 seasons of the show. During that time I also developed / filmed and delivered another series for Cabelas called "Sossy's Outdoors"
In 2019 it was time for me to move on to further my creative needs and so I left the comfort and craziness of TV to strike out on my own again. Since then I have steered TLF through covid and into today where we are the first call for many clients and producers on projects whether they be corporate or narrative. I enjoy the days when I wake up knowing I'm on route to set the most.
