This page contains sporting events, interviews, promotional videos and other related broadcast, as well some documentary productions, like a 30 for 30 sample Mister Photon Media provided camera crew included location sound and Dp/Dop/director of photography services on. Nick also has provided camera crews, HD & 4K video crews, among other film and television crew support. As well, Nick’s skills aside from director of photography include gaffer, grip, rigging, location sound, post production, still photography among some other related skills, however; Nick’s primary interest and focus is cinematography with years of experience as a director of photography, as well in other relevant skills.
This is a three camera shoot recorded with Sony F3 cameras, with PL mount lenses for FOX Sports One for NFL coverage on former Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning. This is the SD version of the shoot that was originally recorded in HD.
(Nick) This is LA Dodgers coverage for Fox Sports West, whom I have worked for, as well as FOX Sports several times over several years as a freelance ENG style sports cameraman, as well providing director of photography services for packages, game coverage or other broadcast television needs, including commercials.
A stick microphone was used to capture the audio for player interviews and the dugout interviews due to the run and gun nature of this program, as well, the on-air rush of the schedule. Shotgun mics and camera mics were used to capture players on the field.
Rory McIlroy Pro Golfer Coverage, BMW Championship, Cherry Hills Colorado
This is a group of coverage of professional golfer Rory McIlroy at the BMW Championship in Cherry Hills Village Colorado. The last interview was a bit tricky as the venue wanted no silks or lighting control at the clubhouse for the last interview, so was the contention of changing sunlight. The interviews relied on microphones whereas the tournament coverage samples, and B Roll relied on the camera mic as a sound recordist with a boom mic is an unwanted intrusion on a golf course. This is a sampling of the entire tournament footage. This entire group of footage was shot by Nick as the director of photography, as well handling all the sound mixing/recording and lighting.
(Nick) This in an interview for ESPN’s 30 for 30, where I was hired by producers of this show for a local Denver CO resource to provide DP and a 2 person HD video camera crew including location sound assistance. This is only a sample of the interview, as it stretches almost an hour, as well other B Roll / background footage was omitted for time. We used some high pass filtering to cut out unwanted excessive air conditioning/HVAC noise that is a common problem in hotels, as well, many office buildings.
Nick provided a local freelance video camera crew in Colorado Springs CO for an uplink for the UFC, also known as a live shot. This is a shot you would see with a side by side live television interview. You do not hear the questions, as they are being asked to the person on camera from the director by IFB. (Nick) I have provided several live shots for various CNN shows (CNN Headline News, Larry King Live, CNN Weather, AC 360 among others). Others include Bloomberg Television, The Weather Channel, NBC News, MSNBC, ABC News, C-Span, FOX Sports/FSN, SPEED, NFL, NBA, The Golf Channel, among a few others. My news gathering experience spans many networks around the planet. I have helped several other corporate clients with live truck shoots, as well several sports networks.
(Nick) We had to turn the original HD videotapes from the Panasonic HDX900 to the producers so this is a HD version of the HD video crew services we provided in Vail Colorado for the Olympic Hall of Fame induction of Sarah Will. If videotape is still your preference, such as from the HDX900 we can also record a backup as well to my Atomos recorder while still recording high definition videotape formats as well. Aside from 1080 or 720p formats HD, I can shoot 4K or UHD or 5K or 6K formats for clients. As a video crew we also have several other tapeless cameras, that record in various formats like DVCPRO HD, XDCAM, p2, AVCHD, XAVC, MXF, Mpeg, DNxHD, RED or Quicktime as well.
(Nick) Before HD television broadcasts and 16×9 SD video, SD 4×3 video was the standard. In Denver, as well Lakewood Colorado following Carmello Anthony, then playing for the Denver Nuggets. Aside from this reality television piece, I have worked on several other factual entertainment pieces, including ABC’s The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, The Amazing Race, For Love of For Money, Oprah’s Big Give, Dad My Dad, I’ll Try Anything Once, What Would Ryan Lochte Do? Extreme Makeover, Extreme Home Makeover among several others.
Coach Gary Barnett Interview
This is the SD version of the 720p HD video production was shot by DP/DOP director of photography Nick in Denver, as well our HD video crew, through some other Colorado areas including Aurora, Commerce City, the Foothills and the metro CO area. Our The HD video crew consisted of 3 people for most of this assignment, aside from the producer. This is the standard definition version of the program aired on SPEED Channel. Aside from SD & HD, Nick & Mister Photon Media’s camera crews also have 4K, as well up to 6K with the RED Epic Dragon.
This among other numerous programs for SPEED are in Nick’s
professional television production portfolio over the years.
This is pre and post game coverage for CBS NFL coverage for Pittsburgh & Broncos divisional playoff game recorded in Denver CO and Invesco Field. (Nick) I have shot for NFL, NFL Films and other related programs for this network over the years, as well other networks covering sports networks including CBS, FOX Sports, NBC, ESPN, Mountain West, PAC 10, Sunbelt Sports, Golf Channel, NBA/NBA Entertainment, PGA Tour Productions, among several other sports broadcasters.
Aside from being a solid director of photography, Nick has also been a long time veteran location sound recordist with a lot of experience in this, as well lighting, data management, post production among other production skills. If your a producer or shooter comping to Colorado needing crew members to support you on your video, film or television production Mister Photon Media has the right people with the right gear, as well specific, yet broad experience aside from camera, we can help with all the support roles. If you are an incoming crew or director of photography or a cameraman, videographer or cinematographer as well and need a veteran sound man, or other expertise like gaffer, grip, data wrangler/manger, camera assistant, teleprompter operator or other production guru, with all the support gear to supplement your production needs when traveling into Colorado, consider Mister Photon as a Colorado resources for crew personnel as well. On this production of The Racing Line I was hired as a sound recordist / mixer in Pueblo Colorado. I was hired as a sound man to record voice over/narration, to camera addresses, foley/sound effects and assisted with other production tasks. As well I referred other camera crew members to these shoots like the gaffer & key as well. The challenges were mixing sound in car without letting the engine & car mechanics dominate the voice over or A Roll/to camera. Other challenges in auto racing programs include avoiding over-modulation from high winds and loud auto noises. As you can tell I’m a pro at this by tuning in to this YouTube video.
