Lights... Camera... Action!

The newest addition to my film arsenal- Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera

The newest addition to my film arsenal- Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera

After years of taking stills (which by the way, I absolutely love), I have been delving into the world of DSLR filming. It is something that I have wanted to do for a while and will eventually figure out exactly what I want to do with it. But in the mean time, I am going to have fun trying out different projects: both personal and professional.

Video 1: The Metal

Check out this film comedy short that my two youngest wrote and starred in. Shot with Nikon D800, Tamron 24-70 f2.8 lens, Westcott continuous lighting, and Rode VideoMic Shotgun

Video 2: Thanksgiving

Instead of taking stills this Thanksgiving, I spent some time falling in love with my new GoPro HERO5 Black and put together this little montage. Shot with GoPro HERO5 Black and EVO Gimbal. 

Video 3: CodeMark Financial

Many of you may not know this but I've been working with the awesome Mark MacInerney and his company, CodeMark Financial. Mark mainly has me shooting commercials and Codemark TV episodes which are his insights on mortgages and financing. Check out the first commercial I shot (and cameoed in) for him a couple months ago.

Learning film making is a journey and I plan to get better and better at it. But in the mean time, I am really enjoying the process both creatively and technically. If any of you video or film people out there have any critiques or suggestions, I am eager to listen.

Enjoy- Cheers!

Family Portraits : Carter Family

I know I don't post much about it, but I love family shoots. Every family brings a different dynamic that is very fun to capture. The Carter family is a very athletic, active family that is pretty laid back. The only requests were that their photos not all be typical and at a location with graffiti or old buildings. Here is a sample of photos from our shoot.

Senior Portraits : Quentin

This past weekend, I had the pleasure to shoot with senior Quentin who will be heading to Belmont University in Nashville, TN this fall. He wanted a shoot with an iconic Houston flare- the imagery, the skyline, downtown. Our shoot took about an hour and a half covering from the graffiti by Warehouse Live to Discovery Green to the Sabine Street Bridge
