Eric Kessler & I capture stuff blowing up with Phantom v1610 at 60,000 FPS

First of all, do not try any of this stuff at home! We had a range safety officer overseeing our production to keep everyone safe. When Eric Kessler of Kessler Crane visited me in New England for the first time, I had to find something unique to keep him entertained. How about firing a very […]

I was lucky enough to be invited on this trip and got to hang out with some of the best photographers in the business. The […]

The Phantom Experiment

First of all, please do not try anything you see in the video above at home. We took precautions while shooting the more dangerous Phantom experiments. We made sure people were at a safe distance, we had fire extinguishers and the camera was protected by Lexan blast shields. I was hired by Cox Communications in […]

Clone Wars: Tommy Two

Last month I did not attend NAB in Las Vegas. But I was there. How is that possible you ask? I have been working feverishly over the last year to do something that no one else has managed to do. To create an exact replica of myself for the sole purpose of passing off unwanted […]

Exploring Abandoned Mine Tunnels in Arizona and Testing New Gear

First off, do not try what was attempted in this video blog above at home or away from home. Going into abandoned mine shafts, tunnels and other ruins is dangerous! It may be fun, but criminals, wild animals, dead wild animals, poisonous things, rock fall, Philip Bloom, explosive gasses, and other dangers/injury could lurk inside. […]

Bloom/Guilmette Blog War – Bloom Overboard

Foolish I know, this blog war. It is a real waste of talent and resources. But it is fun and entertaining too. I have been on the road with a bunch of Kessler gear and I have shot a ton of cool stuff in the Pacific Northwest. Exciting content like the Pacific coastline, the California […]

Bloom/Guilmette Blog War and Pacific Northwest Road Trip

I have known an English fellow, Philip Bloom, for about two years. Lovely human being, but something is fishy. I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is, but I think Philip has declared war. You can read his blog here. I am currently in beautiful northern California in a small town called Ft […]

Christmas with Friends and the Canon 5Dmk2 DSLR

My blog is crossing over into personal… ut oh! My parents moved out west this past summer and this was my first Christmas in 31 years without them.

Capturing live music with Zoom H4 portable stereo recorder

I have owned the Zoom H4 for about a year and I have used it on many different projects. I have used it to record natural “wild” sound while shooting nature, specifically waterfalls. I have used it to capture audio inside the Boston Garden as the Celtics pulled the championship banner up into the rafters. […]
