Unlike most photographers, I never debated between Canon or Nikon. The gear that was available to me when I first started out was Canon and so I continued to invest in the brand. I always loved my gear, specifically the different lenses that were available. Getting to work one-on-one with Canon has been a great experience. All of the individuals who work there really care about the people using their products. Lately Canon has been posting some of our recent work on their Facebook page and I realized that I haven't shared any of the films on the blog. I thought it would be fun to start at the beginning.
In December of 2009 Canon asked us if we could shoot some fun footage of a 2 day workshop. We took an intimate approach to the film and really wanted to find out why students enjoyed the workshops as well as why the instructors enjoyed teaching them. All of the footage was shot at the workshop, except for the intro section which we created in our studio. For that section of the film we wanted to find the essense of the gear and keep it within the branding of Canon. Casey spent several hours waving LED lights over cameras and lenses until we got it just right and while it took a long time, we both love the end result.
This film has been shown at several tradeshows around the country and was also featured on Canon Live Learning's page here.
It has been a wonderful experience continuing to create work for Canon and we've truely enjoyed working with all of the great people there.
