Whenever I get an opportunity to work with other professionals I jump at the chance. I love seeing how other people put things together and listening to their ideas on what makes an interesting shot.
Early this year I had the opportunity to work with a company called Beard and Bowler, shooting b-roll for a charity video they were putting together.
We met before dawn on a cold, winter morning in Paterson, NJ. But it was worth it as working with Jason was nothing short of inspirational.
They put together a website containing their “Hero Collectors” recently and I love how they used the aerial shots to add to the story, instead of making the aerial shots “The story”. It’s a great lesson on how to use the tools without overdoing it, so I thought I would share the page here. Enjoy!
And if you get a chance to work with someone more experienced than you are…take it!
