This was the second of three music videos I made for the Omaha Guitar trio. I think this might be my favorite song of the videos we did. It was also the most difficult edit to complete, as we recorded the video and audio over several tracks getting the timing right on some of the intricate parts proved to be extremely difficult and required a lot of re positioning of the files to get them just right. In the end it all worked out though and I think it turned out pretty awesome.
The guys in the Omaha Guitar Trio asked me to put together a series of videos for them during their recording time. Here’s one of the 3 we shot for that project, filmed in 4 takes, so not all of the video matches up with the audio since I sat with a different member for each take. All in all, very happy with how this turned out.
Today I worked with Brinker Harding, who is running for a seat on City Council. He needed some new photos for his marketing materials. We were looking for something a little more casual than a straight into camera shot, and were able to get a few different set-ups in not a whole lot of time. Here’s a few favorites from the shoot.
Every year my girlfriend likes to go somewhere warm in the winter months. Something to look forward to during the cold crappy months. Since she works for Hyatt we get to stay in some really nice places for free or significantly reduced costs meaning we’re fortunate enough to travel a little more often than most folks.
This winter we went down to Arizona for a few days. We mostly just hung out at the pool and ate fattening food so I didn’t take many photos but we did go on an adventure one day. Here’s a few photos
I absolutely love shooting weddings – they’re like an iron man event for photographers – you have a bunch of different types of photos to take, often in bad conditions, with very little time for each set-up all happening in one marathon day. On the other hand, I’m not really a big fan of doing family photos, mostly because I don’t feel like I can get the kind of quality photos I want and why offer a service you’re not happy with?
The problem is that when you shoot weddings your couples tend to want you to do family photos for them as they begin to start their family. In the past I’ve always resisted this a bit and referred past clients to other photographers, but this year I dipped my toes in the water by doing some pregnancy photos for a few folks. Jon and Robyn’s being the first session for a couple who I wasn’t doing it just for a friend that only needed one or two images.
I gotta say I’m pretty happy with the results from this shoot, so maybe I won’t shy away from stuff like this as much anymore.
