Current Setup?
My Camera is a sony a99 that I plug to a Sennheier MKE 400. For lenses I have a sigma 15mm fisheye, a sigma 50mm and a Rokinon 16mm wide angle. I use a glidecam hd-2000 for stabilization.After that I have my usual stuff that I always have in my bag and a Pentax k1000 for film pictures,

Who are your favorite riders to film with and what are a couple of projects you really enjoyed working on?
I’d have to say Etienne Charlebois and Joel Marchand. It’s always nice when you have a good relations between the filmer and the rider and with these to it was always a good time! I always have a good time filming. I get so stoked when the rider lands a trick! I enjoyed every project I worked on!

As a filmer who also shoots photos, do you ever have a tough time deciding what to shoot that day?
Not really… Usually I always decide if im shooting pictures or videos before paking my bag so I only stick with one or the other for the day.

With more and more riders wanting a photo and video footage of their tricks, do you ever wish you could do both at the same time? haha
Hell yeah man! It’s the worst when you have an idea for the filming and the picture at the same time and you can’t do both! haha

Any tips or advice you have for filmers getting into the game that you wish you knew when you were starting?
To really know how to set your camera (youtube is a good place to learn!) always shoot in raw format and always have fun!
And also get low and close! Use the fish at it’s full potential
