Hiring a Cinematographer in Reno? A cinematographer is often referred to as Director of Photography [DoP]. I’m available as Videographer, Camera Operator, or DoP, and videocasts, plus live-stream productions requiring video transmission to AV mixer or straight to live feed.

My [cinematographer in Reno] package includes everything listed for one price. I’m available for half day, full-day and multi-day production, locally and regionally throughout the Northern Nevada and California areas.

But don’t let the “cinematographer” stop you, if you’re simply looking to hire a videographer. I’ve worked commercial shoots, product, advertising, fashion, weddings, bar and bat mitzvah and sporting events. So, let’s get together to see if I can help with any cinematographer in Reno needs today.
