My Equipment – Digital Camera Timeline (Past and Present)

Through the years I have used various film cameras, everything from disc film to disposable 35mm, to 35mm cameras with zoom, but nothing quite compares to the quality, and clarity, and ease of use that I have been able to obtain with a digital camera. Now I’m not knocking the 35mm cameras here, but I personally prefer the digital cameras. Not only are most digital cameras easy to use, there’s also the added benefits of not having to replace film rolls, wait for photos to be developed, etc. You snap images with a digital camera, they show up on the LCD screen, if you dislike what you captured, you delete it, no wasted film, no wasted money, no wasted time. Below is a timeline of digital cameras that I have owned and operated since 2005. They are in order from newest to oldest. Below are the details about each camera, and a little bit of info about my own experiences with each one. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Canon VIXIA HF R500 | Years … Read More…

From forecasting to chasing, to shooting footage, and more, including brokering. Most notably, I brokered my footage out to 60 Minutes in 2013. A big accomplishment for me. But as time has gone on, I didn’t feel as though I could handle the brokering aspect of it any longer. I knew of a few different brokering companies with decent track records.

But never really got anywhere. Over the past few months however, I had been noticing what was happening over at Live Storms Media. Seeing lots of good facebook posts about how people had made sales and such. It appeared to be a fast growing company, and I … Read More…

Google AdSense – My Experience

So earlier today as I was editing my website I noticed my Google AdSense Ad on my Videos page was showing an ad for Google AdSense Ads. (click left image for larger view) I found this humorous personally, but also pretty cool. I figured I’d share my experience with Google AdSense here, and also link some info if you are interested in signing up. First of all, I was skeptical, as I am with anything online, especially making money online. But I figured what the heck, might as well do some research and just see what all the fuss was about. I had noticed many ads on websites and YouTube videos, and a number of folks talking about this thing called Google AdSense. Back in October 2011 after loads of research and information gathering, I strongly considered signing up, once I found out how easy it was, I was sold, and have been signed up to Google AdSense since October 2011. Google AdSense is very easy to use from my … Read More…
