Crime Reporter

What a cool shoot.  I had a blast meeting and shooting Susy Solis, crime reporter for KTVT channel 11, for an editorial shoot.  I wanted to show her cool fashion sense, but also show visually what her surrounding might look like on a normal basis.  She was awesome, such a cool girl, and man did she have some crazy stories.  

Here is the image they ran in black and white, I do really like the color version also though.

Auto Trader

So I shot this personal project of my Grandfather a while back.  He is one of the coolest guys I know.  I haven't done anything with it besides putting it on my vimeo page.  Auto Trader found it online somehow and loved it.  They asked if they could use part of the video in an Auto Trader UK video ad.  So here it is...  I think it turned out really cool.

Ross Perot

I had the honor of shooting a video project of Ross Perot a few weeks ago.  It was such a interesting experience.  He really was so nice to the whole crew.  You never really know what to expect going into a project with a "celebrity" type.  I have to say though, it was a very nice experience.  The only thing I would have changed would have been getting Mr. Perot to go through the 6 pages of lines more than once.  Yes, he did one take and was done.  We did talk him into doing a second take on page 4... but it was because he sneezed.  Hahaha.

His office was seriously like a museum.  He had so much art and history surrounding him and throughout the hallways, it was amazing.  The day we went and scouted the location, Mr. Perot's secretary was a tour guide for us through three gigantic hallways of American history.  It took about 2 hours, but was well worth it.  She told us about all of the POW rescues that Mr. Perot were apart of, how Mr. Perot bought all of Russia's space equipment, because they needed the money and didn't appreciate their own history, showed us Bin Laden's cane that the special opts. gave him, Norman Rockwalls original paintings... on and on.  It was such a great experience.
