About Gwen

I’m a photographer and videographer based in San Francisco, CA. I will shoot or edit anything, but I’m a total sucker for things that are social justice oriented or food focused. Or dogs. I love dogs.

I work both solo and on crews large and small, so I have a good general familiarity with many aspects of production, including pre and post. A partial list of my core skills:

  • Camera operation
  • Lighting/DP
  • Grip
  • Basic sound capture
  • Photo and video editing
  • Photo retouching and compositing
  • Graphic design
  • Production management


I generally try to use the right tool for the right job (budget allowing, of course), so I’ve used a range of different gear. Some of the gear I like to use includes:

  • Primary camera: Canon C300 Mk II
  • Other Canon cameras such as Canon 5D Mark III (including Magic Lantern)
  • Sony FS level cameras such as the FS7
  • iPhones
  • Rode and Sennheiser mics and transmitters
  • Strobes (for photo)
  • LED lights (for video)

Technology (partial list)

  • Apple products
  • UNIX
  • Adobe Creative Suite
  • ShotLister app
