“YEEHAW!” screamed the talent as nearly 15 people dressed in cow costumes stumbled about the Atlanta airport.
It was not easy operating the camera while trying not to breakout into laughter during each take of the “Skip the Stampede
video we produced for AirTran Airways.

The day was long and the trail was tough but we finally did get those steers corralled on that plane.

Our production company, Common Machine Production, had a great time producing the clip. The video is a response to an ad SouthWest Airlines is running, in which their crazy baggage guys pull up their shirts and flash an AirTran plane.

I hope you enjoy our response.

On March 9th and 10th Common Machine Production had the opportunity to document 300 Women Aviator Service Pilots (WASP) receive the Congressional Gold Metal at the Capital building in Washington, DC. I ran the cameras, Brett O’Bourke produced, and Jorge Rubiera edited the piece for AirTran Airways who provided an enormous amount of support to the WASP. We had an incredible time and it was really nice to tour DC the night before the ceremony with my trusty M6 and some old TriX 400… love it.

It’s great to be included in a photography show, and even better to take part in something meaningful. This evening in Miami there will be a great event at Aperture Studios, 385 NE 59 St, to raise money for the orphans of Haiti. This is also a great opportunity to aid those tragically affected by the earthquake in Haiti through photography. Everyone attending will have the opportunity to bid on original signed prints from a variety of photographers (some pretty famous) who have donated their work. The online auction and photography show will take place simultaneously until 10 PM. I’ve donated one of my prints from the Bahamas and hope you get a chance to check out the work at the show.
