2011 Celebrity Mascot Games at the Amway Center

by on Jul.30, 2011, under Work

Today I headed down to the Amway Center with ICPlaces sports and entertainment host Carson Ingle to cover the 2011 Celebrity Mascot Games. The event had four teams of six mascots representing different team colors. This 19th annual charity event brought in a crowd of 15,000 parents and kids to support their favorite mascots from across the US and raise money for the New Hope for Kids Charity. Their mission is to bring hope, healing and happiness to children and families suffering from grief, loss or life-threatening illnesses. To date they have granted more than 3,000 wishes to children in Central Florida. Above is a screen grab of a four way joust round with USF’s Rocky the Bull standing center, representing the green team.

XDL Sportbike Championship: Nashville Superspeedway

by on Jun.11, 2011, under Work

This weekend I traveled up north to shoot more freestyle motorcycle battles for XDL at the Nashville Superspeedway. I got in on Thursday night and went directly from my hotel to a bike night exhibition at Scoreboard Bar & Grill. It was an interesting night to say the least. They had a dance contest and the winner was a hyper midget who called himself “Lil’ Yoda.” The weather on the track the first day was almost 110 degrees. We had 3 cameras set up on opposite sides of the track shooting the competition all day long. With all the crazy tricks being preformed it was amazing only one person got hurt. The most interesting event by far was “longest stoppie” wherein the rider can get up to speeds of over 130 mph and then hits the front break, riding a front wheelie for as long as possible. The winner was Jesse Toler, who managed to ride an amazing 964 foot stoppie. More information about the weekend can be found here. Above is a picture I took while the riders were practicing.

Dance Recital for VSDance

by on May.14, 2011, under Work

Today I headed to Dunnellon, FL to shoot three dance recitals for my new friend Salam Tims, whom I met shooting horse competitions for Catchride this spring. The dance company is called VSDance (Victoria’s School of Dance) and includes children in pre-k all the way up to highschoolers. It was a cool experience for me since I had never seen a dance recital before. There must have been over 100 people combined dancing in the three showings that day. Above is a screen grab from their shortened rendition of “Swan Lake.”

XDL Sportbike Freestyle Championship

by on Mar.13, 2011, under Work


This week I headed out to Daytona International Speedway to shoot the XDL Sportbike Freestyle Championship Series season opener. This shoot was a very fun and interesting experience to say the least. Competitors came here from as far away as Japan to show their sportbike freestyle skills. A few people fell pretty hard but there weren’t any noticeable injuries. The cloudless skies and cool weather made for a great week of racing and shooting. The footage I shot will be part of Season 2 of “Inside XDL” which plays on the Versus Channel. I took the photo above during a little off time.

Color Shader For HIMSS 2011 With Michael J. Fox

by on Feb.25, 2011, under Work

This week I had a fun gig that started with being a studio cam operator for the opening stage of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2011 convention. The rest of the event I was the shader in control of the CCU for the show. Throughout the week I worked backstage for audiences of 500 to 5,000 people. The last day had Michael J. Fox as the keynote speaker. He talked about when he first got Parkinson’s disease and how he tried to cover it up for years before finally coming out with it. Now he is the poster boy for leading the way in Parkinson’s disease research and the search for the cure. This cause is magnified in importance to me personally because my uncle has been living with it for almost 20 years. This event was a great experience and I am grateful I was brought on to help such a large convention.

Commercial for the new Amway Center

by on Dec.15, 2010, under Work

These last two days I was out shooting a commercial for the new Amway Center with the production company DME out of Daytona. It was a pretty long two days, but we got a lot accomplished. It was nice to get to see the new arena before everyone else, they were still putting in light bulbs and painting walls while we were shoot. I was the 1st AC most of the time, but shot a couple of the scenes as camera op. The photo above was taken on an iphone while we were shooting at the Gentleman Jack’s Bar near the room of the stadium. I’m standing next to the camera waiting for the next shot, the weather was  around 40 degrees all day, which made some of the outside shoots a little cold!
