Steadicam

Steadicam

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, […]

A Closer Look Into SPKSMEN

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 […]

Working with the Af100, 7D and 5D

Working with the Af100, 7D and 5D

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 […]

*Updated* An Event that Raised More than $67K for the Salvation Army!

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 […]

HTFU BMX Shoot

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 […]

Kristin and David

Kristin and David

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 […]

Two Political Spots in One Day

Two Political Spots in One Day

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 […]

DSLR Killer? Are You Kidding Me?

DSLR Killer? Are You Kidding Me?

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 […]

If I Could Go Back and Start Over

If I Could Go Back and Start Over

April 26th will mark my one year anniversary of buying a Canon 7D. I wasn’t happy with what I was doing and wanted something more. Something that I wanted to do everyday. Working in an office 40 hours a week just wasn’t for me. Thanks to my income tax return I was able to get […]

Matt and Amber 4/2/11

A few months ago my girlfriend, Jessi Adams, got hired to shoot a friends wedding. I was planning on going and helping with what I could and maybe getting some pictures of my own. Little did I know she was telling Matt and Amber that I did video and soon I was getting ready to […]
