Webb P.
“Pete is highly-knowledgeable camera operator who stays well in tune with today’s ever-evolving technologies and finds ways of incorporating them into current workflows to achieve results.

If you need a camera operator who keeps up with the cutting-edge of technology, Pete is your guy!”

“Pete is a great technician, videographer and mentor. He showed me how a small TV studio operated. He taught me how to capture and edit video and mentored me before I went to school for film.
