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….

    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.
