The Wandering DP Podcast
Up this week on the podcast we take a look at a recent commercial campaign I DP’ed for Asics shoes. This was a bit of a different brief and we got to have some fun with the photography. I chose to shoot on the RED Dragon paired with a beautiful set of Arri Zeiss Standard Speeds.

The location was a fairly small white cyc studio space. There was no over head grid so we were going to have to BYO our soft overhead look.
