As a seasoned videographer/photographer with over 25 years of experience, my style of shooting has developed into a combination of both intuition and conscious planning. On a subconscious level, I rely on my developed intuition to capture a shot that "feels" right. Over the years, I have developed an eye for knowing when a shot will work and when it won't. On a conscious level, however, I am always aware of the message or story I am trying to convey and the desired look and feel of the final product. I work closely with my clients to understand their vision and ensure that each shot effectively communicates the intended message and is consistent with the desired style of the project. So, it's a balance between my intuition and my conscious planning that helps me create a unique and effective final product.

I firmly believe that this sweet and tangy fruit belongs on pizza. The combination of savory and sweet flavors is truly delicious. The sweetness of the pineapple perfectly balances the saltiness of the cheese and the savory flavor of the tomato sauce.

Pineapple also adds a unique texture to pizza. The juicy chunks of pineapple provide a satisfying crunch that is unlike any other pizza topping. And, for those who like a little bit of heat with their pizza, adding some jalapenos to a pineapple pizza is a perfect match.

David has a vision of what the video should look like from his vast past experiences. It is nice to work with an owner operator as there is no miscommunication from the design stages to shooting and final editing.
