Some incredible imagery for the latest @eversourceenergy commercials. Fantastic work by the team at Boathouse with @kimstagram_100 and @rogethat13 leading the charge and putting together a great piece. This particular shot we worked really hard on to maintain as much detail as possible while keeping the dark, pre-sunrise feel. We popped a little bit of color back into the horizon to give it a little extra polish. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorgrading #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #alexa #arri #arrialexa #cinematographer #cinematography #dp #dırectorofphotography #commercial #advertising
New spots for New England Baptist Hospital out now. Can't beat that nice cyan/blue lighting playing off the skin tones and rim light. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #alexa #arrialexa #arri #commercial #advertising #dp #dırectorofphotography #cinematography #cinematographer #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign
Two years ago I was approached by @edamario from @redtreeprod to color a passion project of his. Eric took it upon himself to write, produce, and direct a PSA for a rare disease that effects his family everyday. Today is TSC Global Awareness Day. Spread the word and help others learn more. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dırectorofphotography #psa #tsc #iamtsc #juliannemoore #commercial #alexa #arri #arrialexa
New work for DeWalt coming from the great crew at @sleekmachine. Edited and finished by @dshweez. Some great looking footage from a ranch in Texas where we embraced an old western feel with some nice warm tones. #colorgraders #colorist #color #colorcorrection #texas #bullriding #commercial #advertising #dp #dırectorofphotography #cinematography #cinematographer #davinciresolve #davinci #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign
New work coming out soon. A great opportunity to go dark and gritty with a nice blue/cyan tint. Also my first attempt at using ACES on RED footage. Some stuff I like, some stuff I hate. But I'm getting to the point where I know the quirks and how to work around them. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorcorrection #resolve #red #davinci #davinciresolve #redepic #shotonred #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #advertising #commercial #docustyle #dırectorofphotography #dp #cinematography #cinematographer #r3d
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Here is a spot that just started airing for @avocadosfrommexico. A very clever spot that puts two :15s up against each other that have completely different vibes/looks. At first they appear to be commercials from different brands, but they all tie together in the end. A lot of fun to work on this one.

New blog posting. Link in bio. The Benefits of Spec Work. There is no real set in stone way to approach these situations, you just have to weigh the pros and cons and go with your gut. For the most part, people in this industry just want the best for their project. But ultimately it is a business. And there needs to be some exchange of value. If it’s not monetary, it has to be something else that you can turn in to money in the future. #colorist #colorgraders #specwork #blog #website #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dırectorofphotography #blackmagicdesign #blackmagic
New work for @angieslist now on air. Nice muted tones to accompany the doldrums of everyday life inconveniences for the people that just don't quite fit in.

Our first ever remote connection grade with our sister company in NY, @soundtracknewyork. It was a blast to work on this short - can't say much about it now - but it looked great. #colorist #colorgraders #colorcorrection #cinematographer #cinematography #alexa #arrialexa #arri #film #indiefilm #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #remotegrading #dp #dırectorofphotography #resolve #davinciresolve
Recent work for the team at Sam Adams. Beer commercials are always a challenge. Matching liquid color and branding are critical and can prove to be quite challenging when placing them in a particular environment. Good time as always with @trip.g and @squiersllc. #beer #commercial #samadams #boston #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorcorrection #advertising #cinematography #cinematographer #davinci #davinciresolve #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #red #r3d #shotonred #bostonbeer
Opening Day for the @redsox is finally here! Always a pleasure to team up with @conovertuttlepace and their creative team to get the city of Boston ready for the season. A combination of broadcast, user generated, and archival footage proved quite challenging to match for consistency, but we made it happen. Look for it on @nesn and all throughout New England. #colorgraders #colorcorrection #cinematography #cinematographer #colorist #boston #redsox #bostonredsox #openingday #mlb #davinciresolve #davinci #resolve #bmd #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #director #dp #dırectorofphotography #nesn #newengland #baseball
Unfortunately I didn't get to grade the broadcast campaign for this stunning footage from Acura - that was done by the super talented @timmasick - but I did get to work on some insanely awesome web videos that utilized the same footage from their award winning campaign "Made for Mankind". It was a blast to grade and really cool to collaborate with the agency on such a creative concept. On the broadcast spots they painted out all the wires to make it look as if the product was floating. For the web video they left the rigging. I think both are equally cool. #colorgraders #colorist #cinematographer #cinematography #colorcorrection #dp #dırectorofphotography #acura #cars #commercial #advertising #alexa #arri #arrialexa #vfx #davinci #resolve #davinciresolve #blackmagic #bmd #blackmagicdesign
Now on air - @averybrad0 absolutely bringing it for New England Baptist Hospital. Some killer lighting in this one where we embraced the dark and let the rest fall into place.

A fun #tbt to six years ago and the first time I ever worked with director @casey_tebo. An awesome song accompanied by an equally stellar one take video for @taddyporter. Casey is one of the hardest workers in the business I have ever met. He has basically willed himself to become an accomplished director though pure guts and hard work. Inspirational is an understatement. #colorgraders #colorist #color #colorcorrection #musicvideo #taddyporter #rocknroll #davinci #resolve #davinciresolve #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dırectorofphotography #caseytebo #blackandwhite
