Thank you for visiting bkjournalism. Above, you’ll find examples of my work from the past 5 years – quick-turn features, news issues and documentary projects. With the invaluable help of others, I acted as principal cinematographer, editor and producer of each.
The current featured video was produced for the Detroit Free Press. The North American International Auto Show is an annual event that draws thousands of journalists from around the globe during media week. It’s all glitz and glam – free cappuccinos, models, mega-screens, smoke and mirrors - designed to “wow” car writers and photographers… and in turn the public. The vehicles often take a back seat (no pun intended) to the show, which is what I tried to convey in this quick montage.
The images below come from various trips of the 2011/2012 “winter” season. Michigan ice climbing was weak this year; I made it to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore only twice, under dramatically different conditions. I also attended my younger brother’s wedding and spent a fair amount of time in traffic, witnessing A+ sunsets throughout. I keep this set of images fresh to reflect outdoor pursuits. Cheers.
