After retiring from a career as a serial entrepreneur, I chose to spend all my waking moments creating still and and video portraits of people I find interesting. I’ve been a photographer since I was given an Exacta and discovered TriX and Diafine in the mid-1960s. I shoot now with a Panasonic GH-1 and a pair of Panasonic HVX-170s. With my company, Rotten Dog Productions LLC, I have a multi-purpose crew that serve as gaffers, grips, location audio and second camera for video and as the lighting crew for location still shoots.
My audio setup includes a Sound Devices 442 mixer and 772 digital recorder; a half dozen Lectrosonic SM and UH series transmitters and receivers; Neumann KMR-82 and KMR-81s, Sanken CMS-10 and COS-11's and a CMS-10, and a few Sennheiser mikes. My light kit consists of a Dedolight 575 watt HMI octabox, four 200 series halogens, two Dedo 200 watt HMIs, and four LitePanel LED lights.
Recent projects include a popular video podcast and web video site called SomethingCooking.TV (SomethingCooking.com), presenting signature recipes prepared by top chefs from the best restaurants in the Northeast.
When my wife Barbara and I aren’t working, we can be found sailing on the coast from Boston to Nova Scotia (barbara-ann.com).
