I feel like every time I write one of these short blog updates, it’s been a long time since my last post—and this time is no different. I guess time flies when you’re having fun—or when you’re busy—and I’ve been wide open lately, working on commercials, filming projects, and photo shoots. Last year, though, I achieved a major milestone. Along with Justin Chapman at Chapman Aerial Productions, I joined the ICG Local 600. We were inducted into the union during a quick ceremony at the Local 600 offices in Hollywood, with the Local 600 president and the board. I really look forward to what the future holds for us and the projects we’ll be working on. It was a step in my cinematography career that I will never forget.
Another huge step forward for me was the purchase of a brand new Red Epic-W. In the world of cinematography, this camera is at the top of the heap. Capable of filming up to 8K, the camera is one of the most advanced on the market. I’ve already had the chance to put it to work on some projects, and the future is exciting with this new piece of equipment. It’ll be fun flying it on drone jobs as well. All in all, some pretty exciting stuff has been happening to start off 2018. I’m looking to keep the ball rolling, accomplish my goals, and make memories while working in a field that I’m extremely passionate about.
