Shooting in Guatemala

Today is day two of shooting here In Guatemala. I am working on a project for Casa Guatemala which is an orphanage and school for about 250 kids in the Rio Dulce community in Guatemala. It’s been an amazing project thus far. We have been shooting on the Epic, quad battery module, and the Red 18-85MM which is a beast. The camera and gear weigh about 50lbs so it’s a physical shoot to say the least.

These trips always enable a great deal of perspective and reflection. But it’s not the typical, paternalistic pity. Nor the awe of happiness in poverty. But rather the simple question of “what”. The simple wonder of “what do I want to do today?” and the resulting sensation of endless opportunity and capability. So today I guess I am going to keep making a documentary, tomorrow?
