 Jim did an awesome job shooting underwater video for Edison's Reef Check project at Casino Point, Catalina Island! We'd highly recommend him for any underwater filming project, and will certainly use him again.

 Jim is an outstanding camera operator and producer who is not only knowledgeable, creative and artistic; but also a real delight to work with. He just recently produced an outstanding, short film for Jean-Michel Cousteau Ocean Futures Society on Mr Cousteau's mother, Simone Cousteau. Jim is passionate about his subject matter and strives to always do his best. He is dependable, reliable and comes highly recommended.
