We had a great time capturing and creating the following content for Power Output Challenge 4! We wanted to capture not only the sheer size of this event, but to hone in and capture the emotion, talent and pure intensity that these athletes demonstrate as they push their bodies to the limits. Please watch and enjoy! 
"Power Output Challenge...The fourth annual competition in San Antonio brought to you by 2 Dudes and a WOD, LLC a collaboration of Elite CrossFit and Body Armor CrossFit. Our goal is to bring the best athletes to San Antonio to not only demonstrate their talents, but to challenge and prepare them for the upcoming Open Season"

I had the awesome opportunity to work create this Behind The Scenes video for Chamoy Creative's shoot with San Antonio native Jojo Gonzalez, an IFBB Pro and 2015 Olympia competitor! Great time with a great team.

Product Demo: Pilot Richard Jemal 
Created a few Instagram videos as a product demo for the DJI PHANTOM 3 and PHANTOM 2 w/GO PRO 4 BLACK. Ended up getting the Phantom 3 Pro after checking out the DJI booth and NAB 2015! A great little quad with awesome images! RAW DNG stills and 4K VIDEO! An awesome piece of gear! Check it out, we had a great time filming here at our Southtown Collective Studio and around San Antonio, TX.

We went to NAB Show 2015 in Las Vegas recently and learned quite a bit! The gear was cool, but the people were even cooler! Just a quick update: The @canonusa 11-24mm is a beast! I tried out @redrockmicro #scout and their new #Halo (awesome). Thanks @zacuto for the hands on overview, now I'm really eyeballin the #c100griprelocator.  Made some new friends and finally met some old ones IRL (in real life)! @Adorama @StephenSnavely @CinemillsTX! It was really great meeting everyone! That's it for now!

One of my favorite locations to shoot this past year was in the bakery at Mindy Lu's Pies in Arlington. Maybe it had a lot to do with the fact that they were kind enough to let me try a hot, fresh pie or maybe because it felt like I was behind the scenes of a How It's Made episode.

Here's a couple more of the videos I had fun DP'ing on! Primarily because I got to fly around the court on a DJI Ronin while the athletes played. Almost got run over a couple times, but the rush was worth it! And those cars were amazing!


Shot some BTS photos for SQUEEZEBOX, an upcoming film by Sam Lerma. It's great to work with talented and creative people! Can't wait till the movie premiere!  Photography Richard Jemal #okletsshoot #rjemal #sanantonio #videographer
