Below is a collection of photographs and video screen captures from my recent work trips to Québec City and Santiago, Chile. I found Québec to be beautiful, clean and full of good food and good people. Santiago was beautiful in a more rugged and non-traditional way but I truly enjoyed walking the streets with my camera and felt very safe and comfortable.
This past weekend I went home to Toledo and worked with my friend Joshua Wagy on a video shoot for a project called Smash Toledo. We shot footage for what is going to turn into an introduction/welcome video for his project, which will give viewers an inside look at the best places to eat, drink and be merry in the Glass City.
On Friday, we stopped by a few places Josh frequents, shot some amazing footage of Toledo food and spoke to some truly awesome chefs, owners and service people. This is the most fun I have had shooting for a while and I wanted to share a few stills. I had planned to write a more in-depth post about the places we went and people we spoke to, but I don’t want to spoil too much prior to the piece being finished.
Photographers and filmmakers of the world answer me this: does anyone/everyone else obsess over their images like I do? I have had dreams about cutting this stuff twice since we did the majority of the shooting on Friday. Really good times. Having willing participants and good people to work with makes all the difference.
