STEADICAM – MY ART
I’m an artisan obsessed with photography, movement, film and light. I have been in the business of film for 10 years now, and got my small break sparking which gave me my understanding of the workings of film, how to tell a story visually but most notably, the chemistry of everything on set.
“For me, movement, is the embodiment of the way in which things are experienced. Lighting illuminates the eyes to see beauty, whereas movement allows one to navigate through a space with a fluidness that challenges our understanding of harmony. Understanding both lighting and movement is similar to appreciating the chemistry between the sun and the moon. As one illuminates, the other moves, both dancing in harmony as we, the planets/ audience, observe its beauty”.
My approach to Steadicam is no different. Since completing Tiffen’s Silver workshop, I went on to buy a Tiffen rig, then got to working. Being a member of the ACO has helped me approach my work differently by allowing me to not only focus of just being busy but on refining my skills by focusing on things that I’m not comfortable with. The wealth and the support received, thus far, has been priceless. The association encourages me to maintain and push for a certain quality of work to honour the incredible works created my greats that have preceded me.
In my spare time I enjoy Brazilian jiu-jitsu, CrossFit and Capoeira.
