Jim is a cinematographer, director and writer, who makes his living shooting and directing commercials and writing articles for trade magazines. He is well know for his high speed cinematography, he also excels with vfx, stop motion and live action, his directing career began at the same time as his shooting career, and Jim often walks that line, jumping back and forth between visionary cinematographer for other directors, as well as acting as his own, when directing.
He began his career, or life, in the cornfields and fishing ponds of New Jersey. He learned the foundation of hard work dedication and responsibility from his hard working parents. Although an outdoor enthusiast, Jim watched a fair amount of TV, in fact he can still recite many commercials and has a certain nostalgia for hit shows of the 70's like the Brady Bunch. Jims' love affair with photography was discovered in his first photography class in college, as Jim states " it was like getting a shot of Heroin to the temple I was immediately addicted." After that Jim was completely dedicated to his artistic path, eventually expanding to the motion image. he began his career in VFX for movies, quickly migrated to commercials, making pitstops in Imax, documentaries and live action features.
The Future will take me to greater heights, it is my goal to be known as a very well rounded dedicated cinematographer, I will also segue into screenwriting, and directing, and just plain having fun at what i love to do.
