Just a guy and some lenses

Full disclosure: I don't claim to be a professional photographer or videographer, though I'd like to think that the "Just a guy with some lenses" tagline is selling myself short.

I'm a creative digital marketer who's always looking for ways to maximize what can get done within a given budget range. You know what eats up a budget really quickly? Hiring dedicated professional photographers and video teams.

So what do you do when stock won't cut it but you don't have the budget to bring in a dedicated photographer or video team? You put Steve on it.

I run a collection of high-end equipment and have the experience to shoot and edit the type of visual assets that compliment or anchor content initiatives. That's both photography and video as well as some light sound work. I'm an expert level Photoshop and Lightroom user including using the Nix collection and HDR composites. On the video-side, I can hold my own in Adobe Premiere including transitions, captions, color grading and various LUTs workflows.

My arsenal:

  • Nikon D90 DSLR camera body
  • Nikon D3300 DSLR camera body
  • GoPro Hero4 x2
  • Nikkor 50mm Prime f/1.4D
  • Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5
  • Nikon AF-P 70-300mm VR
  • Misc lens filters
  • Lavalier mics x2 (for interviews)
  • Takstar hot shoe boom mic
  • Misc ball-grip tripods
  • Misc video stablizers
  • Lightbox (product shots)

What I don't have is the dedicated lighting setups that a professional team would bring to the table.
