"Shoot first, ask questions (or forgiveness) later!"
That means a lot of things to me - mainly that I've learned that to "get the shot" I need to be shooting, so shooting is what I do. The questions I ask later usually consist of queries to myself, but sometimes are to others, requesting a model release, or for forgiveness after making people (like gun shop owners!) nervous.
Primarily, I shoot nature: Birds & beasts, water, mountains, clouds, timelapses, scenery, etc. Planes, trains and automobiles, and not just a few boats also catch my eye. Sometimes people cross my path, but in general I leave the people shots to those professionals who specialize in such.
I frequently shoot and retain more of the footage than shown in my portfolio - if you are needing more of anything in particular, please contact me! I also take requests. Residing in Homer, Alaska has a few drawbacks, but the perks are great - overwhelming scenery, dynamic lifestyles, and voracious predators to keep us on our toes.
Increasing quality of production is an ongoing effort, and as my experience, knowledge, and quality of gear increase, so too shall the quality of my clips. I shoot primarily in 30 fps progressive - interlaced footage is a thing of the past for me (evidenced by my older work)!
If you should purchase any of my clips, and have a moment, I would absolutely LOVE to hear how you used them - not only to satisfy my unabashed curiosity, but to learn from the information so as to improve the productivity of my efforts.
Thanks for reading- please enjoy the increasing number of clips I have here on Pond5 - check back frequently for new ones!
