IMG_9842-Liz-PayneI first fell in love with image making when I was gifted a Kodak Pocket Instamatic camera. The prized disposable flash cubes made every picture feel like an elusive event. I later picked up a series of video cameras until I graduated to shooting 16mm film at Ithaca College. I concentrated in cinematography and reveled in conspiring with filmmakers to tell odd, beautiful and personal stories.

Like many curious souls before me, I found myself in San Francisco shortly after graduating film school. In the Bay Area I’ve run the gamut of working on socially conscientious documentaries to remaking many a living room for HGTV. If you need help championing your cause or picking out a nice throw pillow, I’m your gal.

As of late, I’ve discovered an affinity for editing and can say I enjoy every part of the production process. It’s a big wide world out there, with so many stories to mine. So let’s get started.
