***21JUN2011 - If you watched the premiere of ABC's "COMBAT HOSPITAL" tonight then you saw some of my Afghanistan footage, it's being used for establishing shots in the series.…

***29SEP2009 - Just got notified that Helewidis just put up an interview she conducted with me a little while back:…

Also, my latest footage from Afghanistan 2009:


When I was notified that I would be deploying again, I wasn't so much excited as to my actual job (which is definitely kick-ass), but that I would be able to film again our service members in action overseas.  Not just that, but that this time I would be able to do so at a quality unseen since WWII/Viet Nam when film was still used for motion acquisition.  You've seen some of the stills I've taken this time, but the following is where my passion lies: &nb…: >> Updated 16MAY08

Though the actual quality of the footage I shot was film resolution (4K) you'll get an idea of the quality through that link.  I am trying to find the right person at the right influence to put together an specialized filming unit at the national level and will be using the potential this new technology offers as the cornerstone to the argument that the concept of posterity and modern archival footage has been killed by video and is now an option again that we're letting slide by basically six years into these operations around the world.

Even if my quest never succeeds, I will have captured that high quality footage when officially no one was even trying (I've contacted the DOD, DVIDS, AFN, etc.).  And in that alone, I have achieved a real dream of mine and can move on if nothing comes to fruition.

Hopefully you find value in such imagery because that's why I want to film it, for dissemination at any level, and at a quality the subject matter deserves.

A mutual friend of our, Naugs, suggested your page... You are awesome. An inspiration amoungst photographers, a hero amoung heroes. My husband is serving in Africa at the moment, and has served alongside Naugs. I hope someday, with the right equipment, my photography and skill could be like yours! Thank you for your service!!

Thank you, I appreciate that. Small world, Naugs and I were cadets together. Best wishes to you and your husband during the deployment, as well as with your photography. If you haven't already taken one, I would recommend any sort of photography course at a local college or the like, getting the fundamentals up front really goes a long way towards getting you closer to the pictures you want to take.
