And yet another sad one…

Another senseless death. What is wrong with people this summer? So many murders in just a few weeks.

This was a fun one. Able to use a tad of creativity to help spice up a story. This lady was a great interview and very passionate about her work. A great artist in her own right.

A little miracle…

I didn’t shoot this story but I edited it. You can never go wrong with cuddly baby shots!

Feral cats

Here’s a story that I helped the amazing Jim Swift out on. Feral cats are a pretty big problem, so for the sake of the animals, get your outside cats fixed. You will have a lot of miserable, starving colonies of feral cats roaming around town if you don’t.

Had fun with this one. Any opportunity for natural sound.

This was a sad one. Reinforces the absolute necessity for helmets.

Thoroughly enjoyed shooting this one. Such a sweet and kindly lady. Very humble.

Rousing the troops…

Fun to shoot, but very stressful to put together since it didn’t start till 8 pm and we went on the air with this at 9. That’s a very quick turn-around.

Dam revamp

This was neat for me to watch. Unfortunately didn’t get to shoot it. I used to work at Buchanan Dam during my summers off from college. So much history out there in that area. The area right beneath the Dam is beautiful, especially when the floodgates are open – the foaming water glistens and spawns rainbows as it roars over the orange granite.

Snakes alive…

I thought this was interesting and made me drift back to childhood. I saw coral snakes several times in my backyard growing up. They certainly aren’t anything to mess with, but you can pretty much only get bit by one if you are playing around with it or step on it barefoot. So just shoo them away. Not near as nasty or aggressive as rattlers and water moccasins. We found the skin of a 9 foot rattlesnake one time on the family ranch. Creepy. And I was nearly bitten by a copperhead when I was picking up a baseball from the ground in my frontyard. Ahhh childhood memories…

Public v. Private

June 8th, 2010 at 9:45 pm by under Photo/Video

Interesting discussion of possible individual privacy rights being violated in the name of public safety. Will they be violated? If they are, does public safety come before the rights of the individual? Ahhh, the eternal argument…
