Here is a montage of some small projects I have been shooting with the Sony A7s camera accompanied by a score composed and mixed by Benjamin Freiburger. The camera has proven to be a great solution for low/micro budget production.

Our Doritos commercial is still getting buzz. Industry website “Stage 32” featured a behind the scenes article I wrote about the commercial. Check outÂ Super Bowl Success Story of a Workaday DP.
I am privileged to include “Fashionista Daddy” in myÂ new commercial reel. This little commercial that could, aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday. It won 1st prize against 4700 qualified entries in the Doritos ad contest, and placed 4th against all the Super Bowl Ads on the USA Today Ad meter. The top three are from major ad firms representing Anheuser-Busch, Tide, & RAM. Additionally, it was the highest rated 30 second commercial and has been featured on major network news, tv shows, radio, and press including the Today Show, Good Morning America, NBC, CNN, Fox News, Kelly Ripa, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, & NPR.
I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful production team as the Director of Photography. Thank you Director Mark Frieburger, Producer Nathan Scoggins, Producer Nate Daniels, Writer/Producer Gabe Trevino for inviting me to be a part of the project. Thank you Pierce Cook for providing and operating your RED EPIC Camera and Cooke Lenses. Thanks to the rest of the crew for their passion and professionalism in making this a quality product capable of standing out amongst the rest. And much gratitude to my family, friends and colleaguesÂ whom supported the commercial online.
A low budget commercial I shot for director Mark Freiburger is competing w/ the best of the best in the ad world this year as one of five finalist in the â€œDoritos Crash The Super Bowlâ€ Contest.
It was a great opportunity to work with Mr. Freiburger and producer Nate Scoggins while trying out a new set of Cooke iPanchro prime lenses on the Red Epic. Working with the lenses was a breeze, their markings clear and focus silky smooth. Image quality is comparable to higher end s4i and s5i Cooke lenses but there arenâ€™t as many focal lengths available in the iPanchro set and they arenâ€™t as fast. Cooke Optics is receiving an Academy Award of Merit this year â€œFor their continuing innovation in the design, development and manufacture of advanced camera lenses that have helped define the look of motion pictures over the last century.â€
