Prague & Istanbul

Sometimes you can show a lot while traveling with very little. Here’s a Backpack project; a trek through Prague and Istanbul...capturing its sights and sounds.


‘Ulu in Hawaii on an iPhone

Recognizing the potential of the ‘Ulu tree (AKA, Breadfruit) Loren Shoop and his team at 'Ulu Mana have made it their mission to offer unique, high quality, simple, and delicious products made from 'ulu. All their fruit is locally grown contributing to the health of Hawaii's farms, community, and economy. Shot entirely on an iPhone 12 Pro Max with no supplemental lighting. Backpack Storytelling allows you to get up-close-and-personal without being intrusive. Small Cameras. Big Stories.


Farm to Table Organic Mushrooms

Shot in 4K on an iPhone 12 Pro Max in Log V3 using FiLMic Pro. A Go Pro Hero 7 Black was used for the time lapses. Eli & Noah are on a mission to simultaneously reduce green waste while increasing Hawaii’s food security.


Good Spirits

Welcome to Good Spirits on the high seas! Where every drink is a one-of-a-kind cocktail creation. A unique blend of knowledge and technique with a splash of storytelling from regional flavors around the world. Shot on an iPhone, DSLR, and two Go Pro’s.


Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune's Story

An introduction to a woman who defied incredible odds to achieve international recognition. Establishing the well-respected Bethune Cookman University and its growing legacy of empowering young leaders. This one-man-band Backpack Story was captured on an iPhone 12 Pro Max in 4K, a Sony A7Sii with natural light, and one wireless mic.


The Bedouin Lifestyle

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.


Success Stories of the Visually Impaired

Captured on a Sony A7Sii with minimal lighting, this Backpack Story of three extraordinary individuals, highlights how a local non-profit continues to empower and impact the lives of Central Florida's visually impaired.
