Well hey, thanks for sharing! Seems like you've done a lot of interesting stuff.

As a fellow shooter the most interesting thing to see was your reel on Vimeo, I really dug it. Most of the time I find a mix of documentary/performance/narrative/commercial distracting, but you managed to make it blend, it's clear you have your own style. And the occasional added sound effect was really effective, pulled me in. Only stuff I wasn't crazy about was the on-white backdrop stuff, lighting was fine, just seemed very middle-of-the-road. Other than that, lots of epic shots; fantastic catch with that lightning bolt in the background.

Derek!

Thanks for taking a look. I do appreciate it. Yeah, I need to cut out the on white background people. I've got so many things that need to work their way in there..just need the time to edit!

All the best!
