A dream come true, working for National Geographic.
Recently my good friend Bryan Smith through Reel Water Productions managed somehow to convince me that I needed to dive into the world of adventure film making and specifically as a grip, rigger and camera equipment designer. This summer I started with a radio controlled cable cam robot, and now have a 15 foot jib boom, a track and dolly system and a RC camera helicopter, and Bryan was right... I've never been so stoked! Together we have completed 6 TV segments with many more to go for Nat Geo Channel with stories about Base Jumping, Slacklining, Climbing, Kayaking, Ice Climbing, Mountain Biking and Snowboarding, and two web TV series with stories on Mountain Biking, Trail Running, Bouldering, Sea Kayaking, Climbing, Surfing and Skiing for Arcteryx and Patagonia. You could say our expertise in adventure film has become far reaching. I feel super privileged and excited about my new career and feel I've finally found the niche business I've been searching for. Here are a few images from our recent films.
