Gear, Rates & Terms

I can work local as your DoP or gaffer from Seattle, WA to Portland, OR.

DP and gaffer rates vary between $900 and $600 (10 hours) depending on the production type (commercial/corporate/doc/non-profit) and the crew position. Travel days are billed at 50% of the work day rate. No charge for equipment on travel days. Please call regarding half-day rates.

Need a crew? I can call around and check on crew availability and then offer you recommendations for the best available crew people, the folks I work with regularly in the pacific northwest. They’re skilled, likeable, well-equipped craftspeople who work safely and efficiently.
