Videographer with a passion for emotion-driven storytelling.

Melbourne based Director, Cinematographer, and Editor. Recent clients include Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft and Blue Origin. I am a filmmaker with over 10 years of experience and a background in documentary production. By working on documentaries, I have become a more adaptive videographer that is comfortable working in fast-paced environments and is accustomed to editing large amounts of footage into clear, concise videos that are always driven by emotional storytelling. My background in documentary film has given me years of experience in all aspects of film production. Whether your project requires simply operating a camera for a one-day event, or everything from pre-production to directing, cinematography, lighting, sound recording and editing, I am capable of meeting these demands while staying within your budget. My client list includes Bose and the Seattle Seahawks, Microsoft, Blue Origin, Mariner's Bow, Fluke, Seabird Scientific, the AFP, Reuters, Hydrogen Advertising, TRT 2, Venture Real Estate Group, Sewn.tech, CTGN, OTIS Solutions, Sun Path Electric, Our Children's Trust and Pyramid Communications, among others. One of the most valuable skills I have gained from documentaries is my excellent people skills. Spending hundreds of hours working with non-actors that are not experienced in front of a camera has taught me how to get my clients to open up and feel comfortable while I work with them. In addition to this, I excel in the following technical capacities: - Cinematography: Lighting, composition, and use of camera stabilization systems for cinematic camera movement. - Directing Interviews: research during pre-production to formulate questions, ability to develop rapport with the subject so they can deliver natural responses, and quick thinking to react on the fly as the interview evolves. - Editing: 8+ years of experience in Adobe Creative Suite (Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, and Lightroom) Outside of videography, my greatest passion is conservation and protecting the environment. I have produced videos for a variety of organizations focused on environmental issues, ranging from national and international organizations such as the Endangered Species Coalition, Stand.earth and Rainforest Action Network, to local non-profits such as 350 Seattle. If you or your company are focused on issues related to sustainability, I would love to help educate the world about your efforts through video.

"Austin did a fantastic job shooting and editing our video projects. We had him do multiple Real Estate videos, but he does work on various topics as well. We had the pleasure of working with him in-person, over the phone, via email, and even met over Zoom! His communication was top-notch, he met all deadlines, and is great at what he does. I really appreciate how Austin is honest and will give us his input on projects. This was our first time hiring a professional cameraman/videographer and I feel like we lucked out! We already hired him for another project, which he did a superb job on as well. We feel like we're in good hands with Austin and he will be our go-to camera guy/video editor in the future. Cannot stress how good he is at communication. Addresses all our concerns quickly and makes you feel like you're his only client. We also can be very picky with details and require many edits, which Austin handles seemingly with ease! Also he has a network of other great freelancers, such as photographers and graphic designers who can assist when needed. Can't recommend Austin enough!"

"Austin was amazing to work with on production. He was very knowledgeable of the video equipment that we were using and very hands-on when we needed to make it happen. He was a wealth of knowledge as an eye on the ground and helped connect me with local resources. A great attitude and I would work with him again."
