Subject: A Big Thank You
I’d like to say a big thank you for all your efforts over the last few weeks/months in making the shoot such a success and a pleasure to work on. I’ve been going through the timelapse DSLR footage and it’s looking stunning. We really landed on our feet hooking up with you guys. Professionalism and endeavour abounded. The long days just flew past in some of the most stunning landscapes of the world.
Thank you sincerely,

Jim- after getting a shower and some sleep, I wanted to send you a quick note to say what a great job Dustin and Mark did on our fire coverage. Crew West did it all.
You should be proud of Dustin – he is an A-team shooter, and never let the many challenges of weather and “creative” producers get him down. Mark McKay should be in the satellite truck tech Hall of fame. Minimal food. Non-stop live shots and tape feeds..No sleep. He never, ever got snappy. Hellva guy.
I should add that Dustin’s dad did some fine work at the Wallow fire, too.It was all hot work and crazy-long days, but it helps when we work with pros.
All the best-JC
Subject: Phoenix – Dustin
I’m not sure where he is on our list for Phoenix freelance photographers, but Dustin should be near the top. Outstanding eye and hustle in the field covering wildfires last week. He even managed to impress Eric Siegel on a one-take-only look-live close with a complex move and focus-shift all-in-one. Very impressive guy and easy to work with.
Subject: A shout out for Dustin
Great photographer – he knocked it out of the ballpark for us for the last two days. Fabulous attitude, great eye, shot stunning video for us the past two days. Thank you for booking him for us on this sleep deprived exhausting smoke filled story.
