For the past two years I have been training with the Glidecam and recently, I have been investing my time and money to master the art of the Steadicam. The reason is to continue growing in this field and to add more value to the 522 Creative Team. Although the Glidecam is a great tool, it does not compare to a full Steadicam rig. Read more

A year ago I shot a video for Jon at Spksmen and this time he wanted to shoot a different type of promo video. A two location shoot which included his artist sketching up the design for the newest hoodie and shots of the new hoodies being printed. Not sure if this paragraph includes the correct terminology, but I’m a video guy Read more
It’s a great time to be in this field. The technology is never ending, cameras are getting more powerful, lighting has numerous options, and the gear… oh that gear . Not to mention the announcements from Canon and Red. I won’t fill this post about those cameras for two reasons. I haven’t event seen them (as most haven’t), and there’s enough information out there already. I recommend checking out Vincent Laforet’s blog and watch the beautiful short he shot with it. Amazing.

I was lucky enough to shoot the Annual Salvation’s Army Most Amazing Race in Pittsburgh. I shot this same even last year but this year seemed to have more people and move along much faster. Luckily I am in decent shape because I had to cover over 17 miles of Pittsburgh and was on my feet the whole day. What an event though and for an even better cause. Read more
Last week I went over to Jamestown NY to get some shots of BMX riders Matt Baglia and Ryan Baglia to showcase the HTFU clothing line. It was pretty cool to have the entire park to ourselves and be bothered by anyone. Matt and Ryan are pretty solid riders so I was fortunate enough to get a couple redos to get a better shot.
I am still messing with high frame rates on the 7D and keeping a good look (anyone that has shot with 60fps at 1280×720 knows what I mean). Anywho, enjoy the video and if you have any cool tips about shooting action sports with the DSLR, let me know… There is more coming!
I was lucky enough to shoot the wedding of Kristin and David. I can honestly say they have been my favorite client to work for of all time. They moved a few things in the ceremony just to ensure me the best shots. The initial meet up only made me more enthusiastic about the wedding and about making a highlight video.
There was a lot going on during the wedding and I needed a second shooter. I brought along David Banks and he did a really good job. Great attitude, fun to work with and constantly shooting until the end of the day.
Their wedding was so much fun and matched their personalities perfectly. Hope you enjoy the trailer I put together. Feel free to comment.
A few weeks back I got a call from Dave Ogden about a project he was hired on. It was for two political spots to be aired nationally. Figured it would be a simple lock off interview style with some b-roll. The next thing I remember is Dave asking if I could rent a slider and get a second shooter. Game time! Read more
All these new cameras are coming out. Don’t get me wrong. Having all the professional features especially audio and hooking up additional monitors is great. Being able to use the lenses we’ve invested a lot of money into is even better. But saying it is a DSLR killer is… (take a deep breath) wrong. If you think DSLRs are stupid there’s no need to read on. Read more
