DP with 16 years experience available - DV, HD, Film
I work in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles and have over 16 years of experience as a Director of Photography shooting film and video for narrative fiction film, television and various productions. Professionally and creatively diversified, my background covers drama, comedy, news, documentary and a variety of television programming. My extensive portfolio holds examples in categories that include: independent films, music videos, reality-show TV, travel, fashion and business communications.
I began my career in Budapest. I worked at Hungarian Television as a camera assistant and later as cameraman, and was apprenticed to the late László Neumann, one of the great Hungarian cinematographers of the time and a contemporary of Vilmos Zsigmond (Deer Hunter; Witches of Eastwick) and László Kovács (Paper Moon; New York, New York).
I grew up on European cinema. My directing heroes are Fellini, Bertolucci, Truffaut, Kieslowski, Bergman, Polanski, Kubrick, Hitchcock, Ridley Scott, Terry Gilliam, Jean Pierre Jeunet, Scorsese, Coppolla, Michael Mann and David Fincher; my cinematographer influences are Vittorio Storaro, Robert Richardson and Sven Nikvist.
I approach every project with a high degree of professionalism and focus on the director's vision. Due to my classical training in cinematography I am particularly masterful with lighting and making limited resources and budgets stretch to the maximum, delivering world-class work on almost any budget to the best of my abilities.
