Summary

A favorite video:

I’ve been in the biz for 25 plus years…shot everything from cigarettes and booze to baby diapers and salad dressing. I’ve worked with huge crews on large sets to solo projects where it was just me, talent and a camera. I love every aspect of shooting stills and motion. Yes, the business has changed dramatically over the past 10 years. Budgets are different, bidding process is different, the creative process is different, just about everything is different with the exception of one thing; the client still needs to be served.

The one constant that should remain in this business is, that as good creatives, we need to listen to what our clients needs are. How those needs are addressed and translated into words, pictures and actions ultimately results in the success or failure of any project. Listen well…

“Never hack your way through an open door…..”
