Bonnaroo Love

This last Bonnaroo I teamed up with the Zultan’s Army himself to shoot a little side project of some of the behind the scenes workings of a major music and arts festival. The video is currently being showcased on Bonnaroo’s website and facebook page. Shot with a Canon 5D MK II & 7D + Canon 16-35 f/2.8 L & Canon 50 f/1.4  and color corrected with Magic Bullet Looks.Director of Photography: Michael Nyffeler – Editor: Andrew Braden zultansarmy.com 

Music: Pretty Lights – ‘Finally Moving’

Storm Season

After a string of violent and deadly tornadoes in the midwest I wanted to go out and catch some of the weather action. Unfortunately, at this time I forgot my waterproof bag and had to stop filming as the torrential rain rolled in – but the sun was giving a golden glow to the western sky just below the storm front so I stayed as long as I could! Shot with a Canon 5D MK II + Canon 16-35 f/2.8 L and color corrected with Magic Bullet Looks.

This has been the halfway point for the past few million years and it’s an incredible sight to see such a mass of life – unfortunately a sight that becoming more and more uncommon (unless you’re talking about humans) This is a morning spent in quite solitude with them.
