  • 2010 Board of Director’s Mid Year Meeting

    Each year the UPAA Board of Directors meets to discuss and plan for the upcoming year. This year we met in Cookeville, TN at Tennessee Tech, home of Dean Carothers. The Board communicates throughout the year via email and phone but we have found it necessary to hold a daylong meeting where we can meet face-to-face. These meetings have proved to be enormously beneficial.

  • Thinking Inside The Box At Baylor University

    Last year I was blown away by Baylor Photography's time lapse of their 2009 Homecoming. UPAA Members Robbie Rogers and Matthew Minard wanted to do something special to commemorate Baylor's 100th Anniversary of Homecoming, so they spent three days shooting the events traditionally and with a time lapse setup and then cut together this amazing piece:

  • Symposium 2010

    We just wrapped up a great Symposium at Ferris State in Michigan. Bill Bitzinger set the bar really high with a balanced week full of education and inspiration. I thought I would do something different this time and shoot video of the whole Symposium so I could create a video recap of the week.

    Video was shot with the Canon 5D Mark II, 16-40, 24-70, 50 1.8 and 70-200 at 24p 1080. I think the video shows off what the camera can do, especially in very low light situations.

  • Symposium 2009

    The 2009 Symposium was hosted by Deborah Lanni and Bruce Fox at Jamestown Community College in New York. Every year we take a day trip and have a shootout, and this year we were lucky enough to spend the day at Lake Chautauqua. I decided that this trip would be a great chance to shoot some more video with my Canon 5D Mark ii, even though I really wasn't prepared for it. This was one of the first videos that I shot, and looking back at it now makes be cringe a bit.
