A lot of people think I’m being paid to travel and make these films, and the answer to that assumption is NOT AT ALL. I actually lose money on these trips. I don’t get free hotel stays, I don’t get paid to promote some brand or silly product and I often I pay the way for my friends and family to come along and enjoy the experience with me. It’s not about $ for me, I’ve come to find I just really really enjoy doing it. I love to get out of my comfort zone, explore what this beautiful world has to offer, and capture it on film. The older you get, the more you realize how quickly life passes you by. It sounds so cliche, but we all know it, life seems like life is moving in fast forward sometimes, and we also know it can end in the blink of an eye, without warning. I say all this to say, whatever it is you want to do, do it, and if you can’t yet, then work really hard so you can.
I hope ya'll enjoy my latest travel film "Amazing Thailand" If you're curious as to what gear I used to film and make this video I've included a list of the various pieces of camera equipment I used below.
