Latest Photography & Motion Showreel


(Music Information: Another World via FirstCom Music  Library UTS006, Track 2)

I decided to create a new showreel that combines both my photography and motion work.  So much of my passion in capturing personality, style, and grace is embodied in both.  I feel so lucky to be in a time, technologically, where we can create both with so much more than in years past. DSLRs that create gorgeous photos AND motion. 4k Video cameras that allow us to create beautiful stories in gorgeous glory.

In the very beginning I started out professionally with the then hot Nikon D70 for stills and the fabulous Sony DVCAM PD-170 and a MiniDV Sony DCR-TRV950 (which I still have!).


Of course I'm now thoroughly spoiled with the current digital HD/4k workflows,  as opposed to the old SD analog ingest and edit list days!

Having the ability to create productions that combine the best of both still and motion with hardware and software in a workflow that is miles advanced and easier than 10 years ago...I'm awash in awe and thankfulness...and loving every minute of it!

The current lineup of my main motion and still toolset is:
Sony PXW-Z100 4k XDCAM
Nikon D800
Canon XF-300 HD Camcorder
Defy G12 Gimbal
Adobe Premier Pro CC via Adobe Creative Cloud

Feel free to hit me up with any questions!

Until next time:

Love Yourself, Love Your Neighbor, and Stay Unique!
