A Texas Music Documentary, Episode 1

This is part a documentary series that I worked on as a photographer, videographer and social media strategist. On the show we went behind the scenes & follow Texas-based singer-songwriters living the Troubadour life.

In part one of this episode, "Premiere" we introduce the troubadours: the singer/songwriters that the series follows as it explores the challenges and the rewards of trying to make it as a performer. The various troubadours discuss the passions that have led them to perform and where they expect the journey to take them. Industry experts are also interviewed and share their thoughts on how to make it in the music industry.

While I was part of the production team for the entire run of the show, I was just one of a half dozen or so videographers who contributed. A note to my fellow internet content creators: one particularly interesting element of this documentary is the gear I used as one of the videographers on the show. For all the content I currently shoot, I use a variety of enthusiast level cameras from GoPros to Canon Point & Shoots to Fujifilm mirrorless cameras. You can see all the current gear I use here.

The primary cameras I used on this shoot were Canon 7D DSLRs. Look at this episode and leave a comment about what you think about the overall production quality of this piece with the 7D and GoPros mixed into shots from the other videographers using professional cinema cameras.
