Pedal For Peace

I reached out to the Temple University Police Association in regards to a post they had made on Facebook. The event I was originally supposed to shoot was a Gala for board members and elected officials.

However, about a week before the Gala I got sick with strept throat and was unable to come out and shoot. I felt bad for missing the first event, so I promised the next one I would be all good to go.

This event ended up having a huge turnout and the video came out great. Sometimes when things don’t go exactly as planned you can still come up with amazing results.

Country Cookin – Black Tie Friendraiser

This event was my first higher paying gig, and I got the opportunity from simply networking.

About 6 months prior to shooting this video I had invited an artist and his manager to come and do a show with me for The Philly 60.

It was a good interview but nothing super special, I did stay in touch with the manager but nothing really sparked. That was until 6 months later he decides to give me a call. Apparently his videographer for this “Black Tie Friendraiser” event had backed out last minute, and I was the only other videographer he had in his contact. I named my price, and immediately got booked.

I really had no idea who Saudia was at the time, but upon looking up her Instagram I found out that she had more than 300k followers and was a staple in the North Philadelphia community. Feeling very lucky and nervous I decided to go for it and tried to make the best video I could.

After she posted this video to her account my social media blew up and I got a ton of requests for new business. This was my first video that ever got attention like that, so it has a special place in my heart.

Smerconish.com

I met Michael Smerconish through a friend who had previously worked for him. I was applying to be the replacement of my friend. I did not end up getting the job, however I did get invited back to Michael’s office. After a few meetings he had a special video project he wanted me to take care of. He recently purchased and renovated an art gallery in Doylestown, PA. The video that follows is a recap of that renovation.

This project was done by combining file footage, footage I shot on site and custom made animations.

The Temple News

I worked with The Temple News for all 4 years of my college career. First as a freelance photographer, finishing as a Multimedia Editor.

The Temple News is a completely student run newspaper, so I had a lot of creative freedom when it came to the videos I created. What is listed below is every video I have shot or edit in my time with TTN.
