That time I had coffee with Werner Herzog at Telluride Film Festival.
I was there for the premiere of Free Solo, & was having a coffee one afternoon while waiting.
Werner randomly came over and asked to share my table- we ended up chatting for about 30 minutes about filming Free Solo (which he was going to see that evening) and his experiences on mountains in South America, he has lots of interesting stories about the challenges of shooting in every environment. When I got up to leave I asked if I could take his picture  and he suggested we take one together.  He was pleased that I was carrying a film camera with me, my trusty Leica m6 with some Portra 400 in it.
What a moment.

Sad that Telluride is cancelled this year, it has a special place in my heart and is an amazing Film Festival, I’ve been lucky enough to have projects there three years In a row, “Free Solo” premiered there in 2018, “Inside Bills Brain” premiered there in 2019 and this year another film I shot, “The Way I See it” will premiere there, even if it isn’t a physical festival..

RIP John Lewis- A true hero and an inspiration for all.

I was lucky enough to film congressman Lewis in 2017 for HBO and @kunhardtfilms and he remains one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met, he kindly let me take this portrait when we finished shooting.

#bts Filming in Kenya, March 2020 - seems like ages ago, apparently we were already social distancing.
@mcgarigal captured a nice  moment between setups. #cinematography

3 weeks ago in Kenya.
We wrapped our shoot and headed back early to a place that feels very different than when we left.  Enjoying the images and memories of this special place.

Taken on Pentax 67 | 1st three frames are @kodak TMax 400 film and the 2nd three are Portra 800 film (-1 stop).

Back in the U.S. safe and sound though it seems a very different place than I left it 2 months ago. This morning I’m looking back at the last 3 weeks of filming in Kenya with an incredible team of collaborators.  Grateful for the adventures and the wonderful company; Hoping the world can beat this quickly and we can continue to explore and connect in person again soon. 
The ever talented @bramvanwoudenberg took the first two photos in this sequence 🙌🏼 the rest are my own.
