The Most Beautiful Place on Earth

Just got back with the excellent chaps of Account One from the Northern most California coastal region for a fun-filled two days of cows, dairy farms, grass, cheese, and local splendor. For as much as you can hear or read about the redwoods, you have to stand amongst them to really understand what they’re about. I’ll definitely be going back with a smaller camera.


You just have no idea what the redwoods are about until you stand right there with ’em.

Southern most, coastal Oregon. Wow.

Sunrise near Crescent City. Yeah, it was worth getting up at 4am.

Farm dog cared about only one thing – fetching.

God, I love those Jersey cows.

You had to be there.

Southern most costal Oregon where the views can keep you there for a week.

Statue of President McKinley in McKinleyville, California.

Crescent City airport. Two flights in, two flights out each day (maybe).

Erendira Wallenda, two helicopters, and many cameras.

Got up in the air  yesterday to film trapeze-artist Erendira Wallenda performing an acrobatic routine while suspended from a helicopter above Niagara Falls. The best part was banking hard over the American Falls on the way back with nothing but air between me and the water, woof!

ISIS in America

Had the privilege of contributing camera work yesterday to Al’Amriki (The American) an eight-part interactive docu-series following social media and human rights activist, Hazem Farraj, as he explores the roots of Radical Islamic Terrorism through his own personal experience with religious persecution.

We visited the FBI office in Rochester, NY to see a presentation to local press specifically including two Rochester based ISIS sanctioned attackers who never ultimately achieved their objective thanks to the very fine work and dedication of the FBI.

3 days in Steel City

Got out to Pittsburgh last week with the A team to back up Eric Frick on a Blue Cross & Blue Shield gig with my new Canon C500. Good work, good people, and pretty decent food made it a special occasion.

Back with the USSR

Got out to The Flower City to shoot a 2 camera interview for Michelle Malkin Investigates with an interesting gent from the former USSR. First thing on the agenda was a shot of cognac, not vodka, haha. Anyway, Misha, our interview subject, spent time in the Russian navy and of course had many interesting stories to tell. Only problem was, he only spoke Russian, so I can only imagine.

Outdoors

Spent 4 days out on the beautiful lower Niagara river near Lewiston, NY recently with the crew from Leiter Outdoors to shoot steelhead fishing for their new adventure doc “Ice Fishing Hardcore.” Thankfully, I thought to wear my thermal underwear. Brisk!

Interview with ME!

Sat down with photographer Stephen Gabris last week for a little podcast action, talking about being a cinematographer and such. Maybe someone can watch and let me know how it is? (I can’t watch myself.)
