Literally. This picture was snapped at a “One Couch at a Time” premiere in Poland in April 2013. 600 people in attendance!
This hike was a grind but totally worth it. To the hilt!
An electric speech from the past set to electro music in the present. President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society” speech from 1964 is more poignant today than ever.
I’m a big fan a fine oration and these words are timeless. But sometimes they need a little remix to be discovered again.
First L.A., now Phoenix. This film has legs! The response has been overwhelming so far and I hope the momentum continues. Thank you FilmBar for your amazing venue and thank you everyone who came out for your support!

After lots of hard work and an amazing adventure, the documentary I’m proud to be a part of has finally come to fruition! I never thought I would be premiering a movie in Hollywood, let alone a movie with great reception, but both of those bucket list items were checked off last Saturday night. It was a great event with Alexandra Liss, friends and crew, organized by Jean-Michel Werk. Special thanks to Dominic and Paola Marco for the hospitality, your friendship is invaluable.
As our relentless advancement of technology blitzkriegs into the future, there are inevitable casualties laid in its wake. Just as MTV killed the radio star and iDevices murdered the newspapers, Canon’s next generation DSLR just made a statistic out of photography as we know it.
The EOS-1DC is a brand new beast of a camera that can capture 4K resolution video on an SD card. This is an amazing leap in data transfer technology alone. The video quality is so good, each individual video frame captured can rival a still shot from almost any other DSLR on the market today. This is birth of a new art form, Motion Image Photography, a true hybrid of video and photography, and it captures the world ever more successively beautiful and crisp.

But something is lost with this new technology…the rush of perfect timing. The feeling of pressure knowing your moment of truth is slipping. Panic hands and sheer laser focus. Yes, there will be much less heartbreak due to a subject out of frame, but it will also dull the elation of knowing when you got that timing just right.
R.I.P. Classic photography, but technology is marching on.
