Yes, the famous shot in Haiti! We get lots of questions about this amazing shot we captured in Cange, Haiti. That shot was a major portion of our planning for the Cange Municipal Water Project story we created in partnership with Clemson University’s College of Engineering, Computing, and Applied Sciences.
This has to be one of the most powerful stories we have captured since I started working with Safe Harbor eight years ago. Each year, we have pushed the boundaries, getting to a place where real, raw emotion translated into such palatable words. Jenita is such an inspiring woman, with an amazing ability to share emotion in a way that we could truly see into her soul.
It is a beautiful morning downtown Anderson! Testing the rebuilt Phantom 3 this morning after extensive repair! Between the @djiglobal #Phantom3 and the @mavic_pro … we love our portable aerial cameras!
I was amazed that when I received an email this morning from PRNews and read the article entitled “5 Ways to Make Your Facebook Videos More Engaging,” I was disappointed the authors (@ebethsorrell & @ianwright0101) did not even talk about true engagement, or real tactics to increase engagement.

- The Pillars of Excellence
Imagine…recording a 360 Video? It is an amazing video production process that leverages lots of cameras to record simultaneously, 360 degrees. The idea is to allow the audience to experience the video and be able to take a 360 degree virtual tour while the video is playing.

I have to say I am speechless. I am having a hard time articulating how much this is bothering me. This blog post is by no means trying to make this situation about “me”…but it could have been me. Yes…I was that guy, that photojournalist. They had no idea…none!
This comes almost a few days after the ten year anniversary of Katrina. I was a part of a crew that covered Katrina for Belo Corporation, who owned WWL-TV. Yes, we flew helicopters over areas where people were stranded, many of whom were trying to get our attention hoping we would help them. Some used guns to shoot at us while flying over, mainly to get our attention…we could not land because of the location and the danger.
