ESPN – Elite 11 Finals

The Elite 11 Quarterback competition selects the top 25 high school quarterbacks in the country to compete for a spot in the top 11 and overall MVP. The camp/competition is coached by former Superbowl Champion Trent Dilfer and a talented line up of assistant coaches. The goal of the camp is to challenge and groom these young elite athletes for the next chapter in their careers. Trent and his team must be doing something right, last season 22 of the starting QB’s in the NFL came up through the camp.

I was one of the specialty cameras on this show, tasked with shooting interviews and creative transitional b-roll elements. Along side my good friend Dane Henry we shot on two RED Scarlet X’s and a Canon 5dmkII. Once again it was an awesome trip working with the talented team at DLP Entertainment, hats off to Executive Producers Micheal Hughes and Mark Mayer. Be sure to check out the 2 part mini documentary series on ESPN August 7th & 14th at 7pm Eastern and 4pm Pacific.

What a good looking crew!

AT&T – Visa Championships

The country’s top gymnasts headed to St. Louis for the 2012 Visa Championships, one of the qualifying stops on the road to London. This was my first trip to St. Louis and first time shooting gymnastics. It was definitely a cool experience to watch these amazing athletes in person. My favorite event to watch was the vault, I was blown away with how fast everything happened.

The DLP Entertainment crew was on hand to film this action packed event armed with a Arri Alexa and 3 Canon 5dmkII’s. Using small form factor camera systems allowed us to move around quickly to cover all the action. This was a tricky event to shoot, as we were very limited to where we could shoot from. My go to lens on this shoot was the Canon 70-200 f 2.8 IS and a 2x extender supported by a Manfrotto 561BHDV Monopod. Good luck to these gymnast in the up coming National Championships in San Jose and the Olympics this summer in London.

AT&T – Paralympic Athlete Profiles

I just got back from a week long shoot at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs with the all star crew from DLP Entertainment. We had a unique opportunity to follow and document a day in the life of Team USA Paralympic athletes. Dave Denniston is a former NCAA swimming champion from Auburn University, a 2008 U.S. Paralympian and currently the coach of the US Paralympic swim team. Dave has a heart of gold, a passion for his sport and a remarkable story about the ups and downs of life. We also had the pleasure of meeting 2011 USA Shooting Paralympic Athlete of the Year Eric Hollen and his daughter Payton, an aspiring ski racer. Really inspiring story about this Father/Daughter team chasing their dreams of Olympic gold. Look out for Eric this summer in the Paralympic games in London, Good luck Eric!

Heavenly Mountain – Season Recap 11/12

Another Ski season is on the books here at Heavenly Mountain Resort. I can honestly say this season was quite an interesting contrast to last years record breaking snow fall. This winter marked one of the driest winters in over 100 years here in Lake Tahoe. The months just kept passing without a single snowflake from mother nature. The storms finally arrived late in the season and we received the bulk of our seasonal snowfall around mid March. Despite the lack of snow, there was still plenty of memorable days and vertical feet logged. Check out some of my favorite highlights from this year.

Fox Sports – San Diego Padres Open

I Just got back from a week long shoot in San Diego filming the Padres for Fox Sports and DLP Entertainment. The objective of the project was to shoot the opening montage for the Padres, which airs before every game on Fox Sports. This was a really cool assignment, we shot just about every corner of San Diego in a really artistic and stylized way, basically a camera mans dream. For this shoot we wanted to roll as light as possible, so naturally the camera of choice was the Canon 5d MKII, an arsenal of lenses and Kessler pocket dollies to add a bit of movement to the shots. Check out this slick edit from the boys over at DLP Entertainment.

Dawn Patrol – Opening Mott Canyon

My good friends over a Ski Patrol invited me out to document the behind the scenes of an avalanche control route. Due to such a low snow pack this season, this was the first route out into Mott & Killebrew Canyons. This was a really exciting experience, nothing like the sound of bombs in the morning to make you feel alive. Thanks to patrol of the opportunity.

Nike Choosen

Check out the highlights from the Nike Chosen event at Heavenly. The Heavenly Terrain Park Crew and Snow Park Technologies built a really diverse feature for the event with lots of different options. The main attraction was the 80 foot gap jump with a perfect Lake Tahoe Backdrop. Shot by Chris Stamey & Aaron Laub. Edited by Chris Stamey.

East Bowl

Fun morning out shooting the signature run East Bowl at Heavenly. The snow guns and harsh back lit snow made for some interesting and beautiful images. This was a same day edit, shot, edited and posted in 6 hours.
