Some people say they think in pictures, but I have always thought in videos. The eye of the camera becomes my eye, and I record the way I see.

Chua Yun Chun Dance Shoot with Lee Milby & Sharan Kukreja

I recently did a test video shoot with fabulous dancer, Chua Yun Chun! My video partner and I wanted to test the FS700 camera in anticipation of a future music video shoot. I thought it would be ideal to have someone as the subject of the video so that we could practice more techniques, so I put a call out on facebook to find a dancer who was free that Read More

Orchestral Performance Video Documentation: Eric Lemmon

The Impossible Will Take a Little While: composed and directed by Eric Lemmon. The set up included 3 GoPros and 7 DSLR’s.

I love to participate in documenting the realization of people’s dreams. When I was doing wedding video and photo, I often Read More

Enjoyed the color correction during post, going for a cool, appealing overall look for the video. Details of the garments such as Read More

Fashion Video Production, NYC: Lee Milby

Fashion Video shot for Coco + Liz. This was a one-day dual fashion photo and video shoot, where I brought double the equipment! It was a hectic day, but the results were great and everyone on crew was wonderful to work with. We shot against and around the Bowery Mural. The garden was actually right across the street from it, and kudos to our model who was brave enough to Read More

Vincent Cooper Fashion Video

For this video, I chose a rather desolate part of Brooklyn to shoot. The sunset allowed for nice bright shadows, to properly display his skin and form. I’m a fan of backlighting, which was abundant during our first shoot. My instinct is always to give imagery a cinematic edge. As we were walking around, I saw so many beautiful shots that couldn’t be included in the final vid because they Read More
