Update from Sitka

Well it has been almost a year since I updated the blog so I wanted to start off strong with a series of screen shots from footage I have been filming here over the past few weeks.  I am shooting a number of different projects in Alaska this summer (3 tourism videos, 3 public service announcements, an 8 minute promotional video about Sitka and Salmon, and a documentary film about wilderness in Alaska.)  I am going to be sharing a lot of media over the next few weeks and look forward to posting some great stuff soon.  Below is just a taste of Sitka so far!

Gateway to the Tongass

Almost immediately after arriving in Sitka I had the amazing opportunity to go hike and film on Kruzof Island near Sitka.  Kruzof is home to a dormant volcano and is a world class destination for hiking and camping.

I am producing and shooting a film for the Sitka Conservation Society to promote Sitka as a gateway to the Tonagss National Forest and this place is one of the most incredible and accessible destinations around.   Below is a teaser screenshot from the film (COMING SOON!) and following are some fun production photos by the talented Alex Crook.

The Narrows – Texas Land Conservancy

In May I had the incredible opportunity to film again for the Texas Land Conservancy.  Check out the first video I did for them here:  Protecting the Nature of Texas

This year we decided to do a one minute point of view film that would highlight some of the best areas that TLC has conserved.  The Narrows was one of the top places I had the privilege to visit and below are some photos that show off its beauty.  Photos by Nicole Mlakar and Will Mederski (and myself).

Video will be released in the next few weeks so stay tuned!
