Sports Video 3 Camera Profile

We worked on this three camera profile of Golden State Warrior star Kevin Durant last week before the Warriors returned to Oklahoma City for first time since KD made his move to Oakland to play for the Warriors. ESPN ‘s Marc Stein conducted the interview at the Warriors training facility in downtown Oakland. Working alongside my colleagues we used three Sony FS7 cameras to capture the conversation for ESPN. With a combination of the terrific Sony FS 7 camera and a variety of Canon lenses we were able to achieve a nice low depth of field look for this shoot despite being in a practice gym with overhead halogen lights.       Here is the full interview that aired on...

NBA Playoffs 2015

Working the NBA playoffs for ESPN this month in addition to some other sports events. May is not usually heavy for sports gigs but this one is different and I have been enjoying it for sure as I always have liked covering sports since way back in the day covering the Niners in their glory days. Thinking back on it now I count at least 20 NFL playoff and championship games, four World Series, US Open at Pebble Beach and the Olympic club, one NHL playoff series, and now the NBA covering the Golden State Warriors. It has been some fun times over the years. (But I am trying to forget the time I slipped in the mud at Candlestick and landed flat on my backside covered in goo…) Some images from last nights game.
