Videography

While still image photography is my passion and the core of all of the business I do, I enjoy creating some videos from time to time using the same lenses and same editing techniques from time to time. I feel like it is a fun and interesting challenge to try to blend the art of still image photography with videography.

This was one of the most unique hikes I’ve done thanks to the weather. It was inspiring to be in a mix of heavy fog and mist that collected as ice as you walked and it led to me making a short video to remember the feeling.

One of the more complete videos I have created came at the end of a trip to the Black Hills and Wyoming with Bryan Rask of Raskal Photography. Throughout the trip I took small video clips using my 5D Mark iii. I combined the video with unique, home-grown effects to create a fun summary of the trip.

One of the more meaningful photography experiences I have had to date was at the 2018 PurpleStride. A 5k for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
