Just got back from shooting two episodes of Playbook 360 for Spike TV at Northstar California. The show was hosted by Dhani Jones and featured Pro snowboarder Jamie Anderson and Pro skier David Wise. Jamie is a South Tahoe local and probably the most solid slopestyle rider in the game, she has won 4 X Games gold medals. David is also from Reno/Tahoe area and has won the gold medal the past two X Games in Skier halfpipe. It was truly and honor to work with such talented athletes.
The team from Deep Roots Media was in full effect on the production side. My good friend Dane Henry, owner of Deep Roots Media, was the Director of Photography on this project and I was the second camera. We had tons of help from our AC’s John Considine and Luis Rubio. Principle photography was shot on the RED Epic and 5dmkII. Such a fun shoot with a great crew!
Look out for the episodes on Spike TV, they will air in late February & early March.Read More›
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.

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.
