I get to do something I love for a living. That's the most important reason why I'm a cinematographer.
I got really lucky and met the world renown cinematographer Janusz Kaminski. I got to work for him for 2 1/2 years. So that was my education. About a year after I began camera PA'ing for him he referred me to DP a project for Liz Goldwyn and I've been shooting ever since.
For me when I tell a story I don't want people to notice my cinematography. I just want them to feel it.
