I am an independent Director of Photography and Producer in the District/Maryland/Virginia area running my own freelance production company. I have spent years shooting work for film, television, web, and corporate video. As I have built my resume, I have also built up my inventory of filmmaking equipment. I spend whatever free time I can find doing gear reviews and sharing filmmaking tips on my YouTube channel.

Great rental experience with Bart! He was very responsive, flexible and nice! Would definitely rent from him again!

This was my first experience using Kitsplit, and it couldn't have been better! Bart is supremely responsive, knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. He helped me troubleshoot some issues I was having with kitsplit's site right off the bat, and even took a substantial amount of time to help me get the footage onto my harddrive when I was having trouble with it after the shoot. The camera was in perfect condition and came with everything we needed. I had never worked with this camera before, so Bart gave us a thorough walk through when we picked it up. I was impressed by how user friendly this camera is, and how lovely the footage turned out on our run & gun documentary shoot. (A shoot that required us to find the ursa mini at an affordable rate on super short notice, and that could not have happened without Bart's responsiveness and help.) Bart is a warm person who's passionate about what he does, and I will definitely be renting from him in the future. Many thanks again, Bart! 🙏

Bart is very nice, accommodating, and communicative. Would definitely rent from him again!

Working with Bart was great. We needed a camera last minute and he went out of his way to hook us up. Very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely rent from him again.
