Describe what you do? I am a cinematographer and photographer. Moving images, and the endless ability to create different forms of realities through the viewfinder is what I am drawn to.
Where do your ideas come from? I am a very curious person by nature, and I try to trust my intuition. When I start a project, I ask myself, what is the core of the scene about? Who is the subject and how do I portray them in a unique way? I try and always stay open to new ideas.
Can you describe your working process? As a cinematographer it´s a lot of pre-production. I have to make sure I have the right location, equipment and lights so that once I get to the location I can concentrate on filming.
Who or what inspires you? People, history, the vastness of our existence here - I could go on... I have a lot of people that I look up to and admire, but generally it’s originality and the unexplored that I love. I really believe in getting out of my comfort zone.
What was your favorite part about working on the Red Valentino Spring/Summer 17 PreCollection campaign? The energy on set at the Red Valentino is always brilliant, and I think that reflects in the campaign as a whole. The boldness of doing things differently and pushing boundaries is always exciting to be a part of.
