Seattle Gaffer with Grip Truck & Lighting

I am a very experienced gaffer in Seattle, and can work local anywhere from Bellingham, WA to Portland, OR.

I bring a large Kino Flo lighting package and a surprisingly comprehensive grip kit that satisfies most lighting needs on documentary and mid-sized corporate & commercial shoots. All of the equipment is kept clean and fully operational and most of it is packed and ready-to-go in the Inventive Pictures customized extended length E350 grip van.

Daily equipment rates are simple and affordable:

$200 – Large grip package with Ford extended cargo van
$50 – Any Kino Flo fixture w/ 32k and 56k lamps
$25 – Any Tungsten or LED fixture
$250 – Cineo HS Cinepro Kit w/ chimera, frame and full range of phosphor panels
$125 – Cineo Maverick Pro Kit w/ chimera, frame and full range of phosphor panels

Weekly rates are 3 x the daily rate.

Please call me anytime and let’s talk about your project.

If you’re flying in from out of town I can offer professional camera support gear (tripods, monitors, etc) at rates cheaper than the excess baggage charges the airlines will charge you to ship your gear.
