The RED Epic + Cooke S4's = crazy good footage.
I had a paper route when I was a boy growing up in Southern California. I loved being alone on the streets during those early mornings. Hearing the birds chirping, feeling the wind on my face and the excitement of pedaling along effortlessly while making money seemed like a dream. A couple hundred dollars a month was a ton of money to a kid in the early 90's- You know, I needed hypercolor t-shirts, slap wristbands and Air Jordans of course!
I directed another spot two weeks ago. The talent, wardrobe and location collided again to make this piece visually beautiful. We couldn't have done it without our phenomenally talented crew. It's currently in post and coming along nicely. My director's reel website should be live in the next few weeks-
I had the opportunity to shoot and spend a few days with Jimmer Fredette in Glens Falls, NY this past summer. The kid can score the basketball, no question about it. More than that though, he was raised the right way and it shows in the way he lives his personal life as well as his attitude on the court.
I shot this piece with my personality and interests in mind. Here are a few stats about the image and myself:
1. I grew up in Southern Ca. and love the ocean (lakes are an ok substitute)
2. I golf (best round 72, I always walk, never ride)
3. I hate wearing shoes (sandals or bare foot all the way)
4. I love mountains (I ride my road bike up the canyon on the right)
5. I enjoy early mornings
Client: Personal work (because I love to shoot)
Talent: Me (Yes, I have curly hair and toned calves)

"The thought of getting a killer shot always helps get me out of a comfortable bed early in the morning. The brisket still churning in my stomach from the night before had finally settled so I knew it was going to be a special morning even before we arrived on set near Austin TX at 5 am.
Although it was dark we could still sense the thick fog rolling over the glassy surface of the lake. My assistants got the boat positioned as the fog lifted and the early morning light engulfed the scene. We started taking shots immediately. The first dozen were good but not exactly as I had envisioned. As soon as I saw the light starting to streak through trees I knew instantly this was what we were after. The rays started small then became bigger. In less than five minutes it was all over. "
