Frequently Asked Questions
What camera do you use?
I think that story is king, and that the photographer is so much more important than the camera, but since people love talking about gear. I shoot on the Sony mirrorless system. Specifically the A7S2. With a couple lenses. The Canon 16-35mm F2.8, which is on my camera 85% of the time. The Sony 55mm F1.8 which I absolutely love for people and details. The Sony 70-200mm F4 which is ideal for that long reach. On drone, I am currently using the Phantom 4 Pro. And for stabilizers, I use a Glidecam. I think that pretty much covers it on gear.
How did this all start for you?
I was lucky enough to be born in a family that truly valued experiences. That meant that we were always traveling somewhere. Photography naturally developed as a way to share these moments. As most of you know, its kind of hard to communicate the stoke of standing on top of a mountain at sunrise. I use moving photographs to share my vision of the world.
What's your film making inspiration?
My film making inspiration are stories that inspire me to get out and explore. And this is what I hope to communicate with my films. A sense of wonder and a deeper connection with the world around us. Here are some films that inspire me.
How do you afford to travel so much? How did you get where you are?
Honestly, kind of unsure. I've been chasing the adventure for some time now. I am a travel film maker, so traveling is kind of what I do. Be that working with brands or tourism boards or just friends on passion projects. It's been a lot of hard work. A lot of hustling. A lot of learning. I feel blessed that I have the opportunity to chase this as my career and wake up each day stoked to create.
I want to do exactly what you do, where do I get started?
This is an interesting question, and a hard one to answer. Because each person's story is so unique, there's no one size fits all. The first thing I can say is improve your craft. Take your skill set to the next level, and chase projects that are unique to you. Then share them with the world.
