New gear.

admin | February 29th, 2012 - 5:31 pm

Jeff Hogan has been a good friend for many years. We’ve worked together on a couple of documentaries, back in 1998 on ‘Cutthroats of Yellowstone‘ and recently on ‘American Cougar‘ both for National Geographic. Jeff’s contagious enthusiasm always makes it fun to be in the field with him.

Jeff is an innovator when it comes to camera equipment, especially underwater gear. The equipment he developed for shooting “Cutthroats” helped earn him a Chris award for underwater cinematography with the first close-up footage ever shot of trout spawning in the wild.

He’s still developing the latest technology to capture creatures underwater. After producing a documentary on beavers for National Geographic he’s refining equipment to capture more footage of behavior of beaver. Yesterday I went out to document the latest gear that he and fellow photographer/filmmaker Andrew Weller have teamed up to use on the next project.

    ^. . Background: I’m applying for an MFA in creative writing program, and I’ve never taken a creative writing course. Most of my creative writing knowledge comes from research I did on my own. I’m wondering if during my research I at least learned the basics of creative writing, or if I really do need to take a course before starting the program? What do you think?
