This is what three locations in three hours looks like - Uber trunk is full, backseat packed with Tristan Nash double fisting some C300s, me and an large equipment case on my lap, and not even enough room to frame a proper picture ha ha... fun first day of shooting for Double7 Images and 4A's / American Association of Advertising Agencies - got some great footage!
It's not everyday you leave a shoot with a smile on your face and feeling better about the world but our shoot with Double7 Images and Tristan Nash for Dress for Success was one of those shoots. These folks are doing good work for good people and it was inspiring capturing their stories! Here's some BTS photos from the set :-)
Tristan provided an EyeDirect for this shoot - a very cool device that allows the interview subject to look directly into the camera and through a series of mirrors, see their interviewer's face looking back at them. The result is a stronger human connection between interviewer & interviewee and more genuine responses on camera.
The New York Times has a profile of the play's director Christopher Bayes and it features some scenes we shot, check it out here.
We recently had the privilege of documenting TCI College of Technology's 2016 Graduation ceremonies at the Javits Center. It was a great experience to watch so many motivated people striving for and achieving their dreams.
Lobo Jones Productions provided both photo & video coverage of the event as well as a second shoot interviewing past current & past graduates.
You can check out photos from the event here and stay tuned for the video.

We recently had a great time providing photography event coverage for New York University's Game Center "Student Showcase 2016" event at MAGNET in Brooklyn, NY.
These kids are making some amazing things down in Brooklyn and it's only a matter of time before you see some of their innovations hitting the gaming market. Very cool!
