Nice photos all.

Phillip's pictures make the athletic aspects of the job clearly apparent. I've often maintained that it's at least as much a dance or an athletic endeavor as it is technical.

Good to see pics of Gunnar; he's about as good with a stick as anyone I've seen. (Not that it's a contest.)

Late to the party, but me posing to kick ass on set for an ultra low budget feature in the woods (Like late May-early June 2009). I'm somewhere in PenMar on the Appalachian Trail.
