He began working on Star Trek in the sixth season of TNG, as the camera operator of cinematographer Jonathan West, and followed him to DS9, where he and West worked from season 3 onwards. He also served as substitute director of photography when West was directing the actual episode.

Krosskove's motion picture credits include working as a dolly grip on Halloween II (1981) and The Thing (1982), as an additional assistant camera on Back to the Future Part II (1989, starring Christopher Lloyd) and as an additional camera operator on the 1994 movie adaptation of The Flintstones.

In 2000, he worked with West, as well as DS9 actress Leslie Ackerman, on the movie What's Eating You?. Also in 2000 he worked as camera operator on Jonathan Frakes' Star Trek spoof Star Patrol!.

In 2007 he acted as director of photography on the feature film Reach for Me, which was directed by Trek director and actor LeVar Burton. Notably, the film was the first one to be shot in the 4K Digital Cinema format, the intended successor to current HDTV standards.
