EQUIPMENT INVENTORY

ONLY THE BEST

I own and operate my own equipment all of which I have purchased and maintained from new. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for, and with that in mind all of my equipment is top of the line, tried and tested in the field under an array of varying conditions from hot dry dusty deserts, humid rain forests and ice cold mountain tops. I also have great relationships with various rental houses should something additional be needed. I am always updating and adding to my inventory.

Within driving distance of Los Angeles all my equipment fits into my Subaru Outback all wheel drive which can access most locations wether it be a leafy suburb in Orange County, a dust track in the Mojave desert, or a mountain trail in Mammoth. For shoots further afield I am able to compact everything ready to go anywhere in the world. I am very familiar with the process of getting my gear through airports.

If you are flying into LA from out of town for a simple documentary type shoot, then I can save you having to carry lights with you or from making a mad dash to a rental house when you land. If you’re hiring me for sound anyway, why not save yourself additional stress. I can supply LED lights, Canon L series lenses,  a slider or anything you see listed here.
