    I was scavenging my old VHS tapes and I found a video from the mid nineties with a music video recorded from TV….. I had forgotten how insane was the cinematography on some MJ music videos… great memories!
    So, I searched for it online to see if I can share with you guys. Here it is!

    I remember that vid, a real gem. Beautiful, well-crafted and heartfelt.

    Hi Christian,

    The DP/Director on that video was Nick Brandt. He did a number of well know music videos and was being thrown directing jobs for features as well. I think they got stuck in development hell, and with a hatred of florescent lights he quit the industry after finding Africa. He is now the number one wildlife photographer doing incredible stills. When Nick Brandt takes a photo he captures a moment that few people have ever been capable of... Anasel Adams comes to mind. He has several books that I would highly recommend. I've been fortunate to trade a few email with him regarding a project that I'm working on.

    Hi Michael,

    As a wildlife filmmaker I am very aware of his work. I had been following the development of his trilogy books about the nature of East Africa. To me his greatest accomplish is been able to capture images of wild animals without telephoto lenses. Like the lion you just posted….just great!

    I've seen your site, you do some nice wildlife work too. How have you found working with Epic. I'll be taking my new scarlet to the Serengeti next month... hopefully it come by then.

    A friend of mine has taken Nick out on safari and said that he takes very few photos. It's incredible patience and timing to get those images. I love the new Lake Natron series he has. Rather morbid, but incredible.

    Ooh Thanks! Actually I think Epic is a great camera, but per some reason took me some time to habituate to her. Maybe it is the ergonometric? Something similar happened with my Bolex H16 SBM, took me some time to get into her. With my Red One we fell in love the first 5 minutes, same with my Arri SR II in the past.
    I would love to know how Scarlet behaves in the Serengeti. PM me with details.
