It’s January 2012 and to some people it may seem that things have been slow, no shoots, no new photos. Well, in fact its been the opposite. Taking a small break from still photography, I’ve been consumed in what I like to call “Video World”. Shooting, editing and color correcting video a.k.a. cinematography.
I’ve been shooting and editing video long before photography. Growing up with an oversized 8mm camera, I would shoot my own videos and short films dreaming of becoming the next Steven Spielberg. Music eventually took the front seat and after I edited my bands music video in 2004, I started bringing in clients to edit video. Now, I’m being hired to shoot, edit and color correct the whole shebang.
About a month ago, friend and photographer Josh Eskridge came to me and asked about doing a little video to feature on his website, a behind the scenes video. After a meeting or two and brainstorming, the ideas had flowed in and this little video had morphed into a full blown documentary. I’ve been working very hard with Josh and the results should be nothing short of stunning. Working with Josh has not only been a way to further my cinematography portfolio but also learn more about his techniques with lighting and model interaction in photography.
We released a trailer last week to a great response and I’m excited to upload the second trailer this upcoming week. All gearing up for a late February premiere. I’ve had the pleasure of working with some great people and great talent. I can’t thank Josh enough for the opportunity to be apart of his incredible vision.
On a side note; I’m really feeling the itch for still photography, so I’ve started working on my next two concepts and have been cruising Model Mayhem and Facebook for the right talent. Come February it’s on!
