"When I’m out shooting on location—whether in the deserts of Africa or the shorelines of Europe—I know I’ll be able to use the footage I capture to supplement my income and support my independent documentary filmmaking. I can honestly say I’ve been able to make my films because of my relationship with Pond5."
