FILM AND VIDEO PRODUCTION
I'm a cinematographer, camera assistant, and photographer based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. I enjoy working on unique projects with outside-the-box concepts, and love using a blend of art and technology to bring stories to life both creatively and efficiently.
I have experience with systems from Arri, RED, Sony, Canon, and Blackmagic, and love cameras and film technology of all kinds.
Below are some examples of my work as a cinematographer in multiple genres and project types. Feel free to take a look!
Also below is a selection of my still photography work.

Northview Class of 2020
A LETTER FROM THE FILMMAKER: Congratulations, Class of 2020! We're here, we made it! I'm so proud of all of us. As many of you know, I've been working on this video since the fall. It was intended to be a recap of the year, and a celebration of our friendships and accomplishments as we enter the next stage in our lives. The COVID-19 outbreak changed the way we lived our lives, and one of the impacts was my filming sessions being cancelled along with school. You'll notice that there are sports, arts, and a few bits of student life missing. From the bottom of my heart, I'm sorry. I did the best I could with what I had, and I decided to include coverage of the outbreak and how the Northview community decided to cope with it. I'm so proud of all of us, and I thank you all for allowing me to document your stories and your memories. I also apologize to those who weren't able to be included. Please know you're still a part of the heart of Northview, and we'll always remember you. Thanks again, Class of 2020. Enjoy the video. -Tanner Hamilton CREDITS: - Video by Tanner Hamilton - Additional Photography by Alina Pawl-Castanon - Aerial Videography by TJ Hamilton - Special Thanks to Lily Camp, Ja'Kaurie Kirkland, Camile Lebon, Peyton Templar, Sydney Rauch, Danielle LaMonte, and Jordyn Young for Additional Content
