After getting a late 2016 Macbook Pro with Touchbar I need to plug in so many different devices that there weren't ports for, only 4 USB-C ports. Here are the 8 devices I've been testing out to make this new laptop work for my set-up.Read More
In my hunt for the perfect set of video lights to fly with and film my client’s videos, the next lights I tried are a set of LEDs from Fiilex.
The K412 set comes in a rolling travel case with 4 lights (two 360EX’s and two 180E’s), barn doors for each, three light stands, a softbox, and a cold shoe mount.
I’ve used these lights on different shoots over the past six months since filming this review and they’ve really helped me stay light and nimble when flying with all my video gear. (Normally I fly with a 67-pound case with two Kino-Flo Diva 401’s, which leads to paying more baggage fees too.)Read More
For the past two years I have done the majority of my lightning with Kino-Flo Divas.
The only problem is that I’m constantly flying to film for clients and need to set up and tear down quickly. I also have to light talent in a run and gun situation where the light needs to be held and moved while recording.
And while the light the Divas put off is big, so is the 67 lb case I have to lug them around in. I needed something different.
Enter the Westcott Flex LED Light. At 1’ x 1’ these lights look small but give off a ton of light. Constructed using a flexible LED panel you can easily handhold the light or mount it to pretty much anything you can think of.
Due to their versatility, I have found myself using these lights in all kinds of environments and consider them a staple to my kit.Read More
This is the story of how we filmed and photographed our friend's secret wedding proposal, which was over a year in the making.
Over the next few days we will be flying to New Zealand to document the wedding (which is happening just 4 days after the proposal) and then staying for another month to travel and explore.Read More
Most unboxings I watch are too long, so when I got the second new MBP in for my editor to use I decided to do something a little different and try to capture the experience, feel, and sounds of unboxing a product quickly. Might do more of these in the future...
If you're curious which model I went with, here are the specs of mine.
- 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core
- 16GB of 2133 MHz RAM | 512GB PCIe SSD
- AMD Radeon Pro 460 GPU (4GB GDDR5)
Like with all my major purchases, I bought this through B&H Photo Video. Here is my exact model.Read More

Canon just announced it, so I’m going to compare the Canon 5D Mark IV to the 4-year old 5D Mark III.
I’ll touch on what’s new, what’s the same, what I wish they would have put in this camera, and what I recommend to someone who currently films video on Canon cameras and lenses.Read More

I just got back from a trip from Portland, Oregon. While I was there I tried to concentrate on being with friends and staying less “plugged in”. When I got back I realized the YouTube channel had surpassed 10,000 Subscribers!
I wanted to put a video together detailing my motivations for running a YouTube channel.
