Panasonic AU-EVA1 5.7K Super 35mm Cinema Camera | Fill the Gap for $8K

Panasonic AU-EVA1 5.7K Super 35mm Cinema Camera | Fill the Gap for $8K

  Earlier this month the Cine Gear Expo was in full swing at the Paramount Studios lot in Hollywood. For me, it’s a 2 1/2 block walk over to Paramount. I like to drop in every year if only for a few minutes to check out all the latest gadgets, gizmos and technology in the field of cinema. There was a lot of buzz surrounding the new Panasonic AU-EVA1 5.7K Super 35mm Cinema Camera. What I personally find interesting about the camera is that it has an EF lens mount,…

Telekinetic Yeti: Stoned and Feathered

Telekinetic Yeti: Stoned and Feathered

  There seems to be a never-ending supply of stoner/doom/metal on YouTube these days. This afternoon I stumbled across Telekinetic Yeti from Iowa. The band has popped up a few times in my YouTube feed recently, but today I took a chance on rock and was rewarded for my effort. Apparently, the band’s first album Abominable was released through Bandcamp.com on March 17, 2017. Do yourself a favor and check it out ASAP.   It seems that the two member band idea has really struck a chord with me lately,…

Photo Story: Miniature Perspectives

Photo Story: Miniature Perspectives

  Recently, I headed to Texas to shoot a couple music videos with Ashley Worhol, lead singer of the band Worhol. Fellow Houstonian Tod Waters, owner of Junker Designs was directing the videos and enlisted my services to DP the project.   One of the segments we were shooting required the use of miniature models to create forced perspectives. An old friend from the local Houston music scene, Kevin Forbes, was great help in providing and maintaining the models. It took quite a long time to line up the models…

Documentary: When We Ruled H-Town

Documentary: When We Ruled H-Town

  A look back at a documentary that I was an associate producer on as well as being featured in as a musician.   When We Ruled H-Town is the story of the 90’s Houston music scene. An objective but nostalgic look at a not-so-distant past when a spark of energy, a deep pool of creativity, and insatiable curiosity brought musicians, artists, fans and an entire city together for a brief moment of greatness and excess during the 1990’s. Other cities may have made the headlines, but Houston made the…

Love Kills in Fashion Video

Love Kills in Fashion Video

  For many years it has been my job to create original content whether it be visual, audible or both at the same time. Still photography will always have a place in the lexicon of media, but video is now an all important marketing and advertising tool on social media platforms. Images must move these days.   With that in mind, I have made many promotional videos for the fashion industry. Most of them start out as behind the scenes footage during a photo shoot. In these situations, time and…

What’s up with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR?

What’s up with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR?

It’s been a long wait and after all the reviews have come in, the comments are all very similar. What’s the point? That’s really the consensus. I’m a die hard Canon fan from way back. I’ve never even considered using a Nikon camera. But even after all the years that the 5D series has been around, I’ve never wanted to own one. Functionality in a camera is important, but price is important as well. Why spend $3500 on a camera body that you’ll immediately have to spend more money on,…

KFSTV Showing Experimental Movies by Jon White

KFSTV Showing Experimental Movies by Jon White

  KFSTV is a new internet TV station started by Tim Woodward of Skin Two just this year. Within KFSTV you will find documentaries, feature films, fashion, interviews and nightlife coverage. After noticing there was room for experimental content, I submitted a short movie I made a couple years back called Nylon Commander. Shortly after, Tim got back to me and the next day I had my own film makers page on the site.   I won’t give away the details of the movie I submitted, but if you have…

Late Summer Bikini and Fitness Shoot

Late Summer Bikini and Fitness Shoot

   It’s late September and Jewell Marceau and I are shooting some bikini pix in a backyard that overlooks the San Fernando Valley. It’s a simple shoot, one Canon DSLR, an open faced softbox on one of my trusty Alienbees photo strobes and Jewell.    The hot tub technician was a bit surprised when he rounded the corner to the backyard and found us there. His day got a lot better real quick. For the past year, Jewell has been intensively training six days a week to compete in a fitness competition,…

Punk Rock Isn’t Dead! Face to Face – Triple Crown of Shows

Punk Rock Isn’t Dead! Face to Face – Triple Crown of Shows

That’s right, punk rock isn’t dead! Face to Face returns to the Observatory for three sold out shows. This video was a marketing piece to tie in Face to Face with Lucky 13 Apparel and ASG Guitars. The band was in the middle of doing their Triple Crown of Shows at the Observatory in Orange County. Over a couple days Todd Huber and I shot Face to Face with very much the same style we used when shooting Agnostic Front a couple months prior, leading up to the release of…

Gritty in the City with Lucky 13

Gritty in the City with Lucky 13

   Shot on a rare rainy day in Alhambra. We needed to quickly capture a day in the life of a custom car builder. To create a sense of being immersed in the lifestyle, we pulled back the color so that it feels as though you are remembering being there rather than watching it happen in real time. This is just one of the many branded content pieces we shot last year for Lucky 13 Apparel.   Get Some! www.Lucky13.com
