I’ve been sitting on some of my recent time lapse footage and decided to edit together a short reel of my favorite shots. Many of these clips have been used in work for the Travel Channel and several corporate shoots for Cisco Systems. Time lapse photography often presents challenges – early mornings after a 14 hour day or tough weather conditions (cold or hot). However they are often my favorite images from a shoot and I look forward to capturing more complex shots using rail systems and more advanced rigs in the future. I hope you enjoy.

“Hehco A Mano” won an Emmy on Saturday night in Ft. Lauderdale for Historical and Cultural Programing from the National Academy of Arts and Sciences, Suncoast Chapter.

This is my first PBS documentary as the Director of Photography for Common Machine Production and I’m proud to be part of such a great short film. “Hecho A Mano,” was the culmination of many hours of sweat equity on everyone’s behalf and the beautifully candid stories of the main characters.

“Hecho A Mano” is now the winner of :

*EMMY, Historical & Cultural Programming National Academy of Arts & Sciences 2011
*Best Florida Documentary, Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival 2010
*Best Local Film, Miami Short Film Festival 2010
