Jeff got his first camera when he was ten and has been looking through the lens ever since. Originally from Philadelphia, he has spent the last twelve years in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon working as a Director of Photography and Camera Operator. Jeff recently relocated to Venice, CA where he is excited to see a little more sun (a little more often). When not behind the camera Jeff can be found playing guitar, riding his bike, and hanging out with his super dog Sebastian.
“My love for photography and storytelling began when I was young-- today that passion has turned into an exciting and fulfilling career. I approach each day of production day with enthusiasm, creativity and a genuine desire to capture and create something special. As a Director of Photography I have a strong technical background, a great eye for lighting, and an adventuresome spirit. I thrive in new and challenging environments. I am equally comfortable working self-directed or as part of a team. I love to travel and I enjoy the friendships and adventure that come with working in production. And most importantly: from "behind-the-scenes" and documentaries to reality TV and concert films--I’ve never met a job that didn't have something to teach me. I love doing what I do!"
