We were out filming with Discount Tire last weekend for the Global RallyCross Championship race in Charlotte, NC. In true Discount Tire fashion, we tried to have a little fun with the athletes and some of the fans before the race by hosting a public meetup at Dave and Busters.
Here is Discount Tire’s short recap video.
A little sizzle reel we cut together for Sam Villa’s entrance at the 2012 Premiere Orlando international beauty event.
So with everyone posting their pictures and videos of the solar eclipse, we figured we would do the same. I wasn’t anywhere special to shoot these and only had my kit lens and an ND filter but they still turned out kind of cool!
We were fortunate enough to be asked to take a trip to the Bahamas with Shelter Insurance to film their 2012 Conference of Champions. The weather was perfect up until the last two days when it rained but we still had a week jam packed of activities and beautiful scenery.
So a few buddies and I headed out to Moab, UT for a weekend mountain bike trip. Denton and I had never been so this was definitely one for the bucket list. I hope to post more GoPro and timelapse footage later but here’s a photo of our campsite and a short clip of a nice little crash I had.
So we finally finished our first music video for the very talented Moonlight Howlers, a rockabilly band from Williams, Arizona. Check these cats out and have them play at your next car show or event!
So a few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of working behind the scenes during one of Set Apart Photography‘s photo shoots with up and coming musician Trevor Forsman. The “theme” of the shoot was a provocative look into the different temptations we are faced with while searching for our own identity. Trevor’s new album “Identify Me” will be out in early 2012. Take a look at our BTS video and let us know what you think!
At about 6:55pm on July 5th, I got a phone call from my buddy Dano who was panting, trying to find his breath while wind howled across the other line. He was scrambling to a get to a high vantage point on South Mountain to get a shot of the oncoming dust storm, also called a “haboob,” that he had predicted about 2 hours earlier. The excitement and nervousness in his tone made me rush to find my camera and jump into the my truck as fast as humanly possible. Knowing I was short on time before the cell hit the valley, I rushed to the nearest little hill I knew of, Sun Ray park in Ahwatukee. It was only minutes after I began shooting that I was totally engulfed by the monstrous dust cloud and found myself in the middle an apocalyptic whirlwind, the likes of which I have never experienced (even in my 14 years living in Arizona). Here is the timelapse shot I was able to capture along with some pretty intense cell phone footage during the moment of impact. It took me about 15 minutes to carefully walk down the side of the mountain and find my truck (which was only parked a couple hundred yards away) relying on my cell phone as a flashlight.
Here’s a photo of the toll it took on my camera, even though I immediately got it into my camera bag after the shot. After a little bit of cleaning up, it’s still working beautifully.
