It’s a natural progression for a still-photographer to evolve into filming. Digital technology, has made making videos (as with photography) accessible. 

In 2010, thirty-five photographers gathered to celebrate their boss and mentor Rich Clarkson for their respective tenures at the Topeka Capital-Journal.

This published video, illustrates the power of the medium and the difficulty of capturing a single moment that conveys an entire experience. I’ve made a few videos  and found the difference between film-making and photographing to be so illuminatingly different yet both mediums, the element of serendipity are at the very heart of the two disciplines.
