Hurricane Katrina Albums

Gratuitous Videos

I used to take a lot of travel videos way back in the late 1980s, using a VHS-format Camcorder. Once I owned my first 35mm SLR I largely abandoned videos as being too much equipment to lug around (VHS Camcorders were the size of a carry-on suitcase). Over the past few years, as video equipment became more accessible (cough…iPhone…cough ) I occasionally started taking some video clips along with my still photography. I’m now beginning to make a push into doing more video work, and will be posting these videos in this humble blog. The videos will be scattered around the various galley pages with related photos. Meanwhile, you may view my collected video works on my YouTube channel .
