World Traveler

 

For the majority of my career, work has taken me to the most remote ends of the earth. Whether documentary film in Asia Pacific Islands;  outdoor TV adventures in pursuit of exotic wildlife on six of our Earth's magnificent continents; on the heaving deck of an Alaskan fishing charter; or lensing a feature film in my home state of Montana, nearly two decades of photographic adventures have fulfilled my dream of never doing the same thing day in, day out.

Image capture technology has changed. When I first started making movies, everything was shot on 35mm or 16mm film.  Then HD came along and wooed most low budget films away from 16mm. Digital cinema cameras continued to evolve into the 4k, 6k, and even 8k sensors of today, making some people eschew 35mm film completely, while others push toward a resurgence in 65mm capture for 70mm print exhibition.   

Though my roots were firmly planted in the analog film world, I appreciate the digital technology that continues to challenge the tried and true traditions. There is no single camera or film stock that is right for every project. Every story should inspire a unique vision, and deserves to be told with the best tools and techniques to achieve that concept.
