A Master shoots Rio


I’m just wrapping up a really demanding, two-week advertising shoot in San Diego that was made all the more complicated by a wicked bout of bronchitis (figures: leave the snow in Philly, catch your death in sunny San Diego).

But I wanted to share this video of my friend Dave Harvey at work on a story about Rio for National Geographic.  It was shot by Dave’s son Bryan, an accomplished filmmaker in his own right. I can’t decide which I like better, Dave’s pictures or Bryan’s film. Either way, you’ll learn a lot from each of them.

Dave’s intensity and eye have always been an inspiration to me, and now I’m picking up a lot of video tips from watching the work of his son Bryan.

I hope to be back to regular posting as soon as I can go more than  a minute without coughing….

  1. It must be extremely tough to have to work in such a place, I mean with all that sun, Warm air, tan bodies, color everywhere, the crowds, the gaiety and having to use a Leica M9 to capture all the sights..Poor guy, but I guess somebody has to do it. My condolences.

  2. Feel better, Bob!

    1. Thanks Marti, I’m coming around!

  3. Just finishing up with my own bout of coughing every two minutes or so, and I really do understand! Get better soon, Bob..

    1. Thanks Chris…hope we’re both up to snuff soon!
