The Lumiere Brothers Center of Photography in Moscow, Russia asked my friend, fine art photographer Wendy Paton, to provide them with a biographical video about her and her work to accompany her one person show, called "Visages de Nuit," at the gallery later this month.
We shot at her studio in Lambertville, NJ, in NYC, and at Chuck Kelton's lab in Jersey City.
Mostly shot on Sony NEX VG 20, NEX 5n, and some Sony Hx9v clips on a little stabilizer. My friend Ryan Mancuso shot some second camera in NYC and helped me with the edit.
A Film i shot about Dustin Kott,
the Californian bike builder who makes custom British style Cafe racers out of old japanese bikes.
I met Dustin in LA on a Harley-Davidson shoot, and was intrigued
how a classic American who looks like he should be building
Choppers, was passionate about little old Brit bikes,
and was using cheap 70s Japanese bikes to make lovely custom Cafes.
