My first Backpack Story in 1996 on an HLV-55 Ikegami Betacam. As a staff cameraman and editor for NBC News in their Tel Aviv and Jerusalem bureaus, I was told a U.S. History professor was living in the Judean Desert with a tribe of Bedouin. The professor described a typical "Day in the Life" of the tribesmen, their history, uniqueness, and how modern technology is erasing their very existence.

A journey to the land of Charles Darwin: the scattered volcanic Galápagos Islands 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. Life there moves to the rhythm of nature with thousands of endemic species, both on its land and under its waters. Galápagos has a “naïve ecology”, in that the animals evolve without predators and have no instinctive fear of humans. Which makes the archipelago a photographer's playground and a storyteller’s dream come true. I captured this experience in 4K with an iPhone 14 Pro Max, a Go Pro Hero 10 Black, and a Sony A7Sii for both video and stills.
Telling stores that matter is part of Hawaiian life. How we tell them is part of Hawaiian art and history.
