About a year ago, I purchased my first cameras that shoot both still photographs and HD video. I now find video to be a liberating medium that will provide me with one more avenue for expression. To that end, I have decided to add a lot of video specific gear to my line-up, including this shoulder mounted camera rig that arrived Saturday and these professional audio accessories that arrived today.
Model Jason C had to tough out a 70-degree air temperature on this fall day when he washed his jeans and my hoodie in Lake Michigan.

I had a the great fortune to donate my Chicago charity advertising photography services to Chicago’s Edge Alliance, which is involved in a wide range of initiatives that respond to the needs of the homeless, people living with HIV/AIDS, the disabled, and veterans.
