About the Artist:
Born Liverpool UK.
As a child I was fascinated with small movie cameras and the process of filming, shooting and creating.
After school I joined the British Military in 1975 and served 5 years as an engineer.
1980 I moved to the France and became an entertainment manager for British vacation companies.
However, in 1986 I came to the States to pursue a career in cinematography and photography with he intention of learning carpentry to pay for them both.
Within one year of working on Nantucket Island learning carpentry, I purchased my first camera and as it was pre-internet, I applied to a correspondence photography course from NY Institute of Photography.
Working for the local papers part time and once in a while photographing musicians and getting national and international publications, I decided in 1993 to head west and go to film school.
Passing with flying colors due to my photography background, I ended up shooting all the students movies for them. One of which got great national coverage with screenings in Slam Dance, LA, Boston, NY, Austin and more.
I was also shooting for San Francisco Examiner Chronicle just as the medium moved to Digital.
I was hear broken so I put my cameras down and moved back to NY in 1998 and started a recording studio in Sag Harbor.
Working with Jay-Z, Jlo, HBO, NBC, DISNEY, AMC, CBS and more, I returned to photography as none of the local musicians I was working with had footage or photographs.
Soon after, I found myself shooting for Publications, NYC based magazines and local press alike.
Native portraits were my next step towards originality. I had made friends in the Native community and putting their elegance to camera was so natural for me. I was asked to be a cinematographer on a Native movie and jumped at the chance. “Looking Glass” has now screened all over the world including Cannes AFI film festival. As I had so much footage and interviews from local Hampton based musicians, I put together a short documentary on music. “Nashville Long Island” was also screened in Cannes AFI film festival and has won numerous awards from around the globe.
Recently 2019 I shot another Native project, only this time I am the director, still photographer and cinematographer. “1,000 Years a Witness” is a documentary on Indigenous Elders telling stories of back in the day on their reservation. Their ages combined come to 1,000 years. I have submitted it to 15 film festivals around the world. We won the first one we submitted to, got into the second one we submitted to and are awaiting the other 13 responses. Cannes AFI film festival accepted it based on the trailer alone. ***I didn’t even submit it to them yet.
I am now planning a trip to AZ to interview, film and photograph the last of the remaining 5 Navajo code talkers from WW11, then off to Dakotas to do an episode of 1,000 on the Lakota, then off to Oklahoma to do an episode on the Cherokee. This of course if all goes to plan.
