Capturing Content for the Extreme Mount Washington Museum

Last December, I spent almost the entire month in New Hampshire on the top of Mount Washington, the home of the world’s worst weather. I was hired to shoot wintery, interactive content for the newly updated “Extreme Mount Washington” summit museum set to open spring 2014. The idea was to capture the extreme winter environment, […]

Vinten Vision Blue Tripod System Review

I am a tripod snob and I am very picky with fluid pan heads. The tripod pan and tilt head is the most important part of the camera chain, in my opinion. If I put it all together in order of importance I would say, one tripod, two camera, three lens, and four viewfinder. Of […]

Creepy Crawlies

I bought the Canon MP-E 65mm f2.8 manual 1-5x macro lens a month ago and today was the first time I had a chance to try it out. The lens is $1000.00 and it is a specialty lens. It is good for only one thing, macro photos and video (using Letus DOF adapters or a […]

Golden Hour

This is just a quick film I shot today during sunset at Ashland State Park in Massachusetts. I wanted to try out my new Red Rock Micro matte box, 4×5.65 glass filters and my new follow focus. All this stuff added a lot of weight to my EX1 and Letus so hiking it around is […]

Champney Falls

Champney Falls is one of my favorite places to go as I explore and find adventure in New Hampshire. Located off the Kancamagus Highway (RT 112) in Albany, NH, the falls drop about thirty five feet in a narrow canyon. When I was younger, I climbed these granite walls. The cascade is about one hundred […]

Screaming Swamp

This video is different from all the other Letus videos I have ever made for my website. This video was shot with the Letus Ultimate 35mm lens adapter. It works brilliantly and I am very happy that I have it. I was a little worried using it so close to the waters edge, this one […]

Arizona Cactus

I am visiting my sister and her husband in Tucson, Arizona. I will be working on a job later this week, but in the meantime, I am running around the desert shooting the crazy stuff that grows here. We do not have spiky cactus in New England! I am using the Sony PMW-EX1 with the […]
