Here’s a short video I put together from my trip to Southeast Asia last year with The Seed Company. I helped set up a satellite internet connection and netbook in a remote village, and trained Mando (the main translator) how to use it.
I captured this footage in between the rest of the IT work, and recorded the background music one day when they eagerly shared some of their favorite songs with ukulele accompaniment.
Geeky Details: Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, Sennheiser MKE 400 Shotgun Mic, 50 f/1.4, 24-105 f/4 IS, 70-200 f/2.8 IS, 16-35 f/2.8, and Velbon carbon fiber tripod. Background music recorded using an Olympus DS-30 digital audio recorder.
You can see more of my videos here.
I’ve done quite a bit of photography recently even though I haven’t updated this site much. On Sunday I took portraits of the Moothart family at a nearby park. The active boys were definitely a challenge, but very fun at the same time.
A couple months back I helped Heather Fuqua shoot a wedding down in San Diego.
In July I took photos for a news story about Hollywood’s 20th Century Props and owner Harvey Schwartz.
The latest issue of The Seed Company’s Seedlinks publication features more of my photos as well (including the cover shot).
Finally, I’ve been posting quite regularly to the FOCUS photo blog.
Some of my photos from my last trip to SE Asia have been published in the latest Seedlinks magazine: the cover photo, along with the photos in the “Remote Possibilities” and “Working Together a World Apart” articles. Be sure to check out this excellent publication by The Seed Company to see what God is doing through this great organization. It was a privilege to be have a small part in this.
A resort in northern Sulawesi, Indonesia (Tasik Ria Resort) contacted me about using one of my photos on their website. It’s partway down on the page in the Volcano Trekking Tour section: the Mount Mahawu Crater panorama that I posted to my photo blog here.
Last week was a busy one for photography, as I also shot photos at the ordination of Greg Peters at Blessed Sacrament Church. The low light is always a challenge, but at the same time it’s a beautiful church so that makes it rewarding.
Last week Jeff Silzer and I setup our gear in someone’s house to shoot formal portraits for The Seed Company board and leadership team. I think the shots came out great, and it was a good experience especially since I haven’t done much with studio lighting before.
Recently some of my photos were put on display in a local Starbucks. I have posted these photos online in case anyone wants to buy these photos. Many sizes and options are available.
In March I was in a remote part of Indonesia doing some IT work, and also photography/videography. I have been posting some photos from this trip on my photo blog.
