Spent most of this autumn in the mountains surrounded by a glorious palette of colour. Wandering across the province working with the Travel Alberta crew was an incredible experience: searching for bears in Banff, the postcard prefect view of Moraine Lake, close encounters with wildlife in Waterton and a look back in time at Heritage Park in Calgary.
A 12km hike transported us through an extreme seasonal change, from the last warmth of summer to the vibrance of fall ending in snowy mountain tops to find golden larch trees. The best part was wonderful memories shared working with another fantastic crew - especially another great mentor of mine, Shaun Henning!
Along the way we met some wonderful people with great stories or fascinating facts to share and I was also lucky enough to meet digital nomad Andrew Evans and his cameraman Josh Newman from National Geographic!
Filming the behind the scenes of Clearwater Documentary's latest project “Human” was quite the dream! Such a pleasure working with a wonderfully adventurous crew in the beautiful landscapes of Grand Cache. Especially since some of my mentors, Daron and aAron were shooting the Sony F55 and Phantom Miro - not to mention Brett's (steadicam operator) cameo as a neanderthal!!! Plus it's always a treat to watch SkyMotion flying their helicopter RED Epic unit around! Wait until you see the gorgeous costumes, wicked makeup and high speed animal shots in these fantastic re-enactments!

Just wrapped working the tail end of a 35mm Feature Film called “Cut Bank” with a cast of huge stars Liam Hemsworth, Teresa Palmer, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bruce Dern and John Malkovich. It was such an incredible experience working for Cinematographer Ben Richardson (Beasts of The Southern Wild) and Director Matt Shakman!
Huge thank you to the camera team especially Dean and Andy for taking me on as a camera trainee and teaching me so much! What an amazing and talented group of folks!
