I bought my first “Steadicam” when I was a freshman in the college. Actually, it wasn’t technically a Steadicam because it has no brand, no monitor, no power system, and especially no arm and vest - just a handheld stabilizer. I put my DSLR on it and began testing it all around campus, looking like a madman as I did. People didn’t understand. They mocked me back then, but I didn’t care. I had found my calling.
Nowadays, I have my own Steadicam, flying motion picture cameras. I always try my best to help the director and DP tell their stories because I believe a great camera operator is the bridge between the creative heads of the film and the audience. Whether utilizing conventional, handheld, dolly, remote head or Steadicam, I want to turn the image in the director’s head into reality. I have worked on many productions with people from different cultural backgrounds to tell a variety of stories. But to me, I still feel like the boy running around campus.
From the first moment I call myself a camera and Steadicam operator, I hold on the hope to utilize my abilities and skills to contribute to the film industry. Since then, I developed and grown up so much around this industry and became more mature, more passionate and more professional.
I love cooking, camping and traveling, but just like I always said, “my life is better on set.”
I love what I do, and I would love to to be part of your next project.
I’m affiliates in International Cinematographer Guild (Local 600), Society of Camera Operators (SOC) and Steadicam Operators Association (SOA)
