About me, Nick Teti; I started out in cinematography as a video cameraman at Denver 8 television, while attending college (for video, television and film production). I learned motion picture production techniques starting in college; from cinematography/camera operation, film transfer, telecine, film editing, syncing sound, lighting, direction, video editing among other production skills, in tandem while in television production; it was my entire focus. After college graduation I shifted full time to a news market as a photojournalist as an employee of Denver 2. I later moved over the years as an employee for ABC, another Denver television station, later to Tribune broadcasting and then for all the national networks as a freelancer.

After the news market and cable television production markets, I began freelancing as a cameraman, as well a production person for video, film and television crews across Colorado. For production I have also been traveling to other states in countries most of my career. As my camera work evolved from the the video cameraman to film production and through the evolution of video + many film cameras, I kept learning & applying all the basics of lighting, grip, sound mixing/recording and talent direction and learned several camera makes as they evolved. From my first student film back in 1989 to modern day 3p film cameras from Arri & Aaton, I have enjoyed production for television spots, some smaller scale features, and some documentary productions in film. As a cinematographer I still occasionally shoot film for a spot, time lapse or whatever else, but most modern production has moved to digital cinematography (often also called digital video production or other related production terminology).

Most of my camera technology as a DP/DOP is into HD video cameras for production now days but I still operate film cameras as well for specific clients preferring specific film stock; although most HD cameras used in feature or other feature or advertising production have several looks exacting film gamma curves among other looks. My applied experience & rental insurance to rent higher end cinema cameras or operate provided resources is common, while I add the support production equipment to complete your production puzzle. As well I provide scalable camera crew resources where you need in Colorado. Aside from the metro areas like Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs & Fort Collins; I have covered the major Rocky Mountain areas from Vail, Aspen, Summit County areas, down to Telluride up to the top of Colorado; as well, border to border in the state. I have worked many Colorado areas aside from the rural areas, small towns, and Colorado's vast geographies. I have also traveled as a cameraman providing Dp/DoP services to clients across the globe. I am also well versed in Spanish, able to travel central America to South America, to other Spanish speaking counties. NTSC or PAL or 35mm, I have the camera resources as your go to camera guy with the creativity + enthusiasm.
