Here’s a look at a few of the productions and locations I’ve worked on. This doesn’t include everything, of course… I’m often far too busy to fool with a still camera. And you’ll notice that I’m not in many of these. That’s because I’m usually the only one who remembers to bring a still camera to a shoot.
Speaking of that, if you happen to have any images from shoots I’ve worked on it the past, email them to me and I’ll post them here… thanks!

My good friend Mark Kennedy shooting in Charleston SC. Mark and I worked together at Channel 2 in the mid ’80’s, and we’ve been fast friends ever since. Mark is the owner of Kennedy Video Services in Charleston, and here was working at the graduation of the College of Chrleston when I was down for a visit.
Shooting with Bobby Stone of Atomic Films. Bobby has one of the few Red cameras in Chattanooga. This was a crazy day… very short setup time, complex setup, multiple talent in front of a seminar audience. While it went OK in the end, there are plenty of things I wish I’d done differently.
In Knoxville shooting for Jay Kriss, In2Focus Films, for XFA and HD Net. These were interviews, bumps, and lead-ins for a live telecast the next day.
