Thirst

Facebook Instagram YOUTUBE BACK TO HOME THIRST Project started as a concept piece for Nanlite. Originally the concept was to make a 30 second Halloween video, knowing me, I  blew it to a $1500.00 shoot, don’t mind as I am happy with the results! All starts with an idea.

Nikon Z6 – Video Sample Footage’s
