FAQ (Frequently asked questions)

  • Q: There are so many people and companies now that do video, why should we work with you?
  • A: Great question! Let's start with experience.
  1. Twenty years writing, creating, producing, directing, casting, lighting, micing, mixing, schlepping (many 'ing' words) assembling crews, making graphics, searching for music and sound effect libraries, finding talent, keeping up-to-date on royalty free and copyright laws, locating the right equipment for the job and keeping it all up to date and in good shape......the list goes on and on.
  2. The quick easy answer is: This is what I love, It's what I do. It's not a hobby or something I just started, it's my job and I wake up everyday excited to do it! I care about working closely with clients and companies to make sure we're all on the same page and together we create something amazing!
  3. I have connections to the best in the business, whatever you need: graphics, voice overs, crews, aerial video/photography, sets, make-up/hair, chroma-key etc.
  4. I'm a professional. I will represent you or your company/client with the utmost respect.
  • Q: How much does a video cost?
  • A: This is the hardest question to answer until you get some more information. It's kinda like saying how much is a car. It all depends on the make, model and accessories. For a video project there are questions like: Will it be a high-end production or a iPhone/Gopro video? Will it need talent? How long is it? Is there a script? Will it need graphics? A voice over? Different locations? How many cameras? Music? (make sure the music is royalty free, unprofessional video creators might not understand how important this is) but even with all these questions, I'll be happy to help figure out what's the optimal options to create the best video for you and your budget.

  • Q: Can we hire you for a photography project?
  • A: Yes! I am always ready to chat about any video or photography project!

  • Q: How do you use Social Media in your work?
  • A: The best part about hiring me for any of your projects is my social media following. I joined twitter back in 2007 thinking it would be a fun way to talk about my trips and show off my photos and videos. It has literally changed my life and I'm thankful to everyone who follows me and shares my adventures! Basically I'm an over-sharer (is that even a word?) I like to share where I'm going and what I'm doing, so if I'm working with you, that will be tweeted along with what I had for lunch (LOL). Of course full discretion is always observed.

  • Q: How many countries have you been to?
  • A: 86 countries so far and all seven continents.

  • Q: What country/place is your favorite?
  • A: That's always a tough one to answer. I like so many places for a variety of reasons from food and architecture to beauty and history. Some at the top of the list are, Antarctica, Fiji, Bali and Italy.

  • Q: Where do you want to visit that you haven't yet?
  • A: So many places, I haven't been to the Galapagos, China, Japan, Korea, Cuba and number one on my list it the Arctic, to video and photography polar bears!

  • Q: What camera/video gear do you use?
  • A: I traveled for years with a huge BetaCam Camera (not to be confused for Betamax) It was the industry standard and not only did it weigh a ton, the tripod, batteries, tapes (remember those?) and the charger were all BIG and heavy! Today I'm so happy to be able to carry a whole video studio in my backpack: Canon 5D Mark III and a Mark II. wide lens, standard and telephoto. Vanguard Tripod, F-Stop backpack, 3 external hard drives, lots of memory cards and batteries.
