Growing up between Oregon and Germany, Dennis’ creative career began in photography in and around the Oregon wilderness. As an experienced outdoorsman, he began shooting stills on film in the forests and mountains of the cascades, studying the nature of light and composition. In the late 2000’s he transitioned into filmmaking, working throughout Oregon and primarily in the Portland area.
Dennis attended and graduated from the USC School of Cinematic arts in Los Angeles in Film & Television Production with an emphasis in cinematography while minoring in photography. He still lives in Los Angeles although his work has taken him to all corners of the United States and other countries.
Dennis frequently shoots on film and owns both Super 16mm and digital cinema cameras. He’s a licensed diver and experienced underwater camera operator and drone operator. He’s climbed mountains and glaciers to capture the right angle, ridden on horses and snowmobiles with a camera, hung off the side of tractors, and dangled over the side of a hot air balloon to get the shot. There are plenty more adventures to be had and he looks forward to working with you on your next production.
