Aerial Videography

Mendocino Aerials
Taken from the Mendocino coast, in northern California.  The video opens up with a shot of the Devil's Punchbowl in Caspar and then moves up north near the Lost Coast, before coming back south over The Heritage House Resort, In Little River.  And in between are a few shots of my daughter in a Lake Tahoe meadow.

McGinty's in Tahoe
This is a short video compilation I made with an aerial drone, the DJI Phantom 2.  These are some of the first images I created with the Phantom and used my sisters family vacation to Tahoe to highlight their experience.  This is just for fun :).

Camp Sunrise 2014
This is a compilation of some video I took while volunteering as the photographer for Camp Sunrise, a weekend long bereavement camp for youth.  Camp Sunrise is part of the Barton Foundation, located in South Lake Tahoe, CA; and works with youth in El Dorado County as well has the surrounding counties -- including Douglas County in Nevada.  (This edit contains the timecode markers).

We covered the 2014 Rahlves' Banzai Tour event located at Kirkwood Mountain Resort. This was the first of a four stop tour around Lake Tahoe. We had beautiful weather and exciting racing. Big thanks to Daron Rahlves for throwing the event as well as Casey Lucas and Brian Walker for giving us their time to get some great content.
