Simplified Website with More Images and Videos, less Text

People like to see more images and video than text on websites these days, especially since most are looking at those sites on phones, so the website now features more images (there's a new photo gallery, and now there's Instagram), more video, and less verbiage. Hope you like it!

Changes Coming for Photo and Video Hawaii

I will be talking about this also on an upcoming vlog...

In my always ongoing quest to provide the best possible video and photography services at the best possible prices, I am looking at making some major changes to my equipment. For one thing, I'm thinking that now may be the time to make a switch from Micro Four Thirds, which has long been the best overall choice for video but not quite the best for photography. It may be time because with the latest generation of the Sony brand larger-sensor cameras, most of the drawbacks for such cameras, such as overheating, short battery life, and expense, have been solved or at least mitigated, and the video quality has caught up with M43. I will have to research it more, but if I do decide to make the switch, you can look forward to significantly better photography and video. Here are some photos I took with a large sensor camera. They are especially good for separating the subject from the background, and for low-light situations.



I am also looking at replacing my drone, which I am getting more proficient with and am almost ready to use professionally, with a newer model that will be easier to use. Whether I replace the current done or not, by this summer at the latest, I will be offering drone services. Stay tuned..

Candidate Video

Earlier I had posted photos I had taken for a local political candidate's campaign event. Here is a campaign video I made for her later, using a new interview, some old photos she had, footage and photos from the earlier event, and some family portraits I had taken.

Third Video Shoot for the Same Family!




Or is it the fourth? Above are photographs, and below are stills taken from the video I shot of another first birthday party celebration for this growing family. This was the 4k plus stills from the video plus some regular stills package, very popular because the customer doesn't need to hire a separate photographer.

Memorial Service

Memorial services are sad occasions, but I actually get a lot of request to videotape them. People like to have a last remembrance of a departed loved one, and often they get a chance to talk to people they haven't seen for a long time. Here are some pictures from the day of a recent memorial service. Some are from video of the service itself, and some other, happier ones are still photos from when relatives and friends got together after the service.
