Whirly Bird - "Relax" - My First Music Video

I’m so damn excited to share this with you all.

Last January my resolution for 2018 was to shoot more video. So when my friend Whirly Bird asked me to come to Tofino to shoot a music video for her, I jumped at the chance. I was up front with her that I had never shot a music video before and was only starting to mess around with video editing software. But for some reason, she had faith in me.

It felt great to get away, and change up my environment.  I love that feeling when you know you are hundreds of miles away from home.  Travel of any kind has always lifted my spirits, even if its just for a few days.  I spent most of my time on my folks boat, and swimming, with the nights and early mornings dedicated to editing photos and feeling inspired by the new surroundings…
