Having worked in Dallas, Texas in the Grip and Electric industry since 1991 with some of the most respected key Grips and Gaffers, I feel honored to have learned from the best. As I broadened my experience I did the typical climb up the ladder thing and settled into a gaffer position in 2006. Now, with literally hundreds on shoots in my career bank I’ve grown confident enough with my lighting expertise and working with a long list of diverse clients to start my own business.
…and this is what happened next.
I bought a big truck and some really cool lighting equipment, started slapping my new logo on everything and had this cool website built. It’s the marketing end of my business and it’s designed to share with you who I am, what I do and how I do it. In the end, I’m a really fun guy to work with, I’ll use all my tips and tricks and full blown lighting expertise to help make your finished project look great and we’ll have a blast doing it. So let’s get started!
As Gaffer, owner/operator of I said Jimmy in Dallas Texas, I push for the best on every project I tackle. I’m professional, flexible and easy to work with. I lose the ego and focus on getting the project planned, shot and finished as the Director and Director of Photography envisioned it. I surround myself with super talented folks which results in feeling good about the end product and looking good for the client.
My Grip Truck
You can expect a spot on lighting plan for any size production. Not only am I accountable for the lighting design, I personally provide and maintain high-end lighting equipment while executing a great production and end product. My Sprinter grip/electric 1 ton is well organized with efficient carts designed for fast in and out loads. Simply put, It’s my stuff, so I take good care of it. You’re my client, so I take good care of you.
