    Alex and Will were incredible partners on the ground. They dealt with unexpected changes and still managed to capture strong footage that allowed us to tell several stories.

    Alex shot beautiful cinematic footage of glass blowers in Kenya for us and helped organize footage delivery from Kenya to the US. Would love to work with him again.

    We needed some additional b-roll at the end of the project and Alex stepped in and got just what we needed. Great shooter.
