Client Wrap Video

I recently spent a week in DC/Maryland to photograph and film a company retreat for a client. During the days we were there we recorded this video and presented it at the final session.

Dinosaur Tracks, AZ

Recently, on a summer drive from Phoenix to southern Utah, my brother suggested I stop to see the dino tracks near Tuba City AZ. I have driven this highway probably more than 100 times and never knew about this little gem. Suffice it to say that I was more than satisfied. As a photographer and science nerd, or at least someone who loves to learn about paleontology, I was in heaven. As you can see from the photos, there are hundreds of tracks in a very small area. Our guide Michael (a local Native American) gave me a little bit of archaeological information but they felt like guesses, mostly. As I’m no scientist, I had no information but what I could see: amazing specimens of Dino tracks of several shapes and sizes. Mostly three-toed with claws. You can imagine how the area was once wet and muddy. Unfortunately, looters have damaged or taken many of the fossils, so I hope someone figures out a way to protect this area soon.

Beynac in Black and White

In 2009, a friend invited me to France to help with a remodel of their newly purchased house to use as a rental/vacation location. It was purely amazing. For six days we toiled away to remove years of recent additions to the house and return it to its original form as best as we could. I was only there for part of the process which consisted mostly of chipping away plaster added to the original rock walls. Of course, my camera was always near my side (wrapped in plastic bags since the whole house was filled with dust for days).  Here’s a selection of black and white from that event. It’s hard to tell how magical it was from the photos but I hope they convey some of the grit and history. The Beynac castle, dating from the 12th century, is literally across the road.

If you’re considering a trip to France anytime soon, I highly recommend it: La Maisonnette du Coteau.
