I’ve been editing and reworking footage from recent Palo Alto Networks company events, but this is the first big event where I’m at the helm of the video production machine. Here’s my public-facing highlight reel:
And a few working snaps from the event:
Morgahn Miller and I headed up to NYC on business, but ended up doing a fair amount of sightseeing, as it was her first time in NYC. I love snapping pics, and Morghan is always willing to have her picture taken.
Here’s a quick set of snaps I took near Downtown Orlando for a co-worker’s engagement announcement. I had about an hour before sundown, and broke my 50mm lens so everything is shot on a tilt-shift lens.
Here’s a look at the investigative team promo campaign I produced at KPRC in Houston, TX. It was a “refresh” of the existing brand image, but with a more modern, “techie” look – while keeping an element of the urban grit. This was the introductory spot, with each of the team members getting their own vignette spots.
Want to know how I got some of those cool video shots? I used Lensbaby lenses on my DSLR camera.
Back in late 2009 I was hired by The Dr Oz show as a staff photographer for a special episode in Houston, TX. I spent the day, snapping hundreds of photos of people getting free checkups and following around Dr Oz, as he helped people and shot segments for the show. It was a long and exhausting day, but really fun to be part of that media machine.
The episode later aired using a ton of my photos, and DR Oz gave me a shout out at the end of the show. Here’s a few of my favorites:

My first big job as Promo Producer at KPRC in Houston was to produce a series of campaign spots to premier during the Superbowl. We rented a soundstage in downtown Houston, and went to work refreshing the Local 2 news team’s commitment to the community and news product. We eventually landed several Emmy nominations for the spots and campaign.
