DC National Prayer Gathering for McLean Bible Church

DC national prayer gathering

What a great project! I really enjoyed capturing 5000 people coming together to be unified and pray for God to use them to live out His love in DC. When I first heard about the upcoming National Prayer gathering, I knew it would be important to tell the story of this big event. McLean Bible Church was one of the 100’s of churches involved but they were also the church that made the biggest push to organize and facilitate the event. I reached out to my contacts there with whom I’ve worked in the past and suggested that they hire me to cover it so they could get the story out to news agencies worldwide and to use the images to get other people and churches involved in future events like this. As a photojournalist I knew I could capture the images that news organizations would publish. I also knew they would trust the authenticity of the images since I hold to the same code of journalism ethics as their organization or agency. I reached out to my contacts at newspapers and wire services and they ran the photos that same day. I’ve really enjoyed working with McLean Bible Church on various projects because they are loving our city in very tangible ways.

Korean War veteran Rep. Charles Rangel | DC video production

Last June I was hired by USA TODAY to shoot an interview and make a portrait of Korean War veteran Congressman Charles Rangel for the 60th Anniversary of the war. Somehow I am just now posting this. Everything about the shoot had to move quickly because we only had about 15 minutes for the video interview and about 90 seconds after that for the portrait. One of my favorite things Rep. Rangel said was that he hasn’t had a bad day since the war. He shares this perspective the war has given him towards the end of the video which was edited by the staff at USA TODAY.

Capital Download for USA TODAY: Robert Dallek Presidential Historian

Robert Dallek, a well known Presidential Historian who has written books about the past half-dozen presidencies waxes on the “second-term curse” Obama might be facing IRS scandal and The Justice Department’s subpoena of Associated Press’ records thereby superseding the First Amendment. Interesting times for sure. Check out the full story and video here.

BrotherSpeak Dream for The Washington Post. Episode 3.

BrotherSpeak Dream episode 3 is all about dreams. This episode has my favorite stories and the interviews were so powerful. These stories of dreaming spoke to my heart.

Background:
Last year I was hired to come in on the ground level with a video series for The Washington Post. After seven years in the news media industry, most of which I spent at USA TODAY, I was eager to jump back into that world and tell some real stories and collaborate with some very smart journalists. Working with the team I was able to help cast the vision for the visual aesthetic, format, and style. Many of my suggestions and the choices we made were so we could help people forget they are watching a video so they could really dive into the stories and relate to their personal victories and struggles. This is part 3 of 3. I am excited to continue this project with The Washington Post and The Maynard Institute for Journalism later this year.

Olympics 2010: Gold medalist Seth Wescott

I got to do a quick little interview of my own with two-time gold medalist Seth Wescott. He now holds all the gold medals for snowboard cross since it’s introduction to the Olympics games four years ago in Torino. I did this quick little intro after I shot the interview by USA TODAY’s Reid Cherner in our studio in the heart of Vancouver.
