The concept of this piece is to show an advanced skateboard trick through artistic high speed video. We aim to tell the story of the trick from beginning to end; utilizing artistic studio lighting and unique camera angles to capture its intensity. We want our viewers to be able to see the action (that normally takes a split second) in a way where they can enjoy every detail and movement of the skateboard and skateboarder. In order to capture an image like this we 35,000w of power to light our subject in front of the Phantom HD Gold camera shooting at 1000fps.Read More
I was recently driving to location in Ventura for a sunset time-lapse when I smelled something like burnt plastic. I thought I messed up my car but pulling over I saw my trunk smoking. Turns out a 12v battery was shorting itself inside my bag while I was driving. A photographers nightmare right!? Luckily the dividers in my Karachi Outpost bag from Crumpler insulated my Canon 50mm f1.2 from being burned.
Aside from saving my camera and lenses in the case of a fire, I took the bag to India and experienced a great image making lifestyle with it. The bag covers a photographers every need for international travel including room for personal items and safely stored camera gear.
Huge thanks to Crumpler for hooking it up with a new bag. :)

I have been fascinated by events captured in slow motion for a long time. I also love the way billowing clouds of smoke look in high contrast light. Using the Phantom HD Gold high speed camera, I wanted to capture smoke at 500fps.

A cave I slept in for 2 nights at the Red Rock State Reserve. With a fire to radiate heat off the walls I was warm as I watched the stars pass above me through the crack in the cave entrance.Read More
