storytelling skills developed as a photojournalist in the still
photography years shines in his video work. "There are no sound or music
tracks for traditional photography. Your work stands on its own merit
with the elements of the subject, composition factors, use of existing
light and angles that one selects for each image."
photography and film production he turned to Television and Video Media
to apply the photographic skills developed in the field of visual arts.
"After all, television and film are really only stills that move. Video
should be easier as a storytelling medium to work in. The challenging
part is keeping your viewers engaged. This is where photo journalistic
experience influences editing, music score, narration and script
development, visual impact and numerous other skills that come into
play. Is video easier? Not really. There are more variables and many
more complex decisions to factor."

just stumbled on shooting SAILBOAT TOURS when seasons ago, I chartered a
Sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay. After booking the date, I
set out to find video and any additional information on the internet.
What I did find was disappointing. The information I was able to find
usually was not boat or equipment specific and of poor quality. The
charter company really didn't have anything more to offer beside the
layout and static stills.
As I attended the Annapolis Sailboat show years ago, I walked through quite a few Sailboats and produced video tours that posted on my YouTube Channel. The
tours featured were shot extemporaneously, unscripted, and narrated by
me as I shot them. I did some very light editing also. The narration and
content does prove that more advance planning is always desirable, but
for a free peek into these fine vessels I thought that what I produce
will be better than nothing and a big step above what I found.
It turns out it was a bigger draw than I could imagine. ABK Video's Youtube Channel has
attracted over 70.000 views. As ABK Video's YouTube Channel began to show more non marine content,
I have started to bring the Sailing and Marine content to a new
website for you to enjoy. That is the reason SAILBOATVIDEO.COM exists.
I have attended other boat shows through the years and brought even more content for you to see. At some
point, possibly after years of shooting this content from the hip, it
may approach perfection...
Thanks for watching and stop by frequently and check for new content.
You can subscribe to my YouTube Channel and you will be notified when I
post new content. But you will also be notified of other work I post
there unrelated to boating. We'll you can't have everything, or can
