I am a photographer, I started as a photographer and my Babyboss Pictures business card says that I am one. But I also shot video and venture into small video production some years back with a Panasonic 3CCD DVC15 camera and Pinnacle Studio editing suite. Videography never meant to be "for business". But when a video shooting assignment if offered, would you take it up? The money is there! And so...I did.
Shooting pics are far easier than shooting video. The simple fact being a photo "single shot capture" but video is "continuously rolling tape". So, with video, the is almost no chance to "steal a break"!
I just finished a video shoot today running around all over the Times Square shopping mall capturing the activities of the participants of a reality game called "You Are Hired" (probably, the Malaysian version of the US hit show "The Apprentice"). I envied the photographer who was shooting on a Canon 1DmkII. I know have about 2hrs of raw footages to edit while the photographer probably has around 200+ pics to look through.
Which would you prefer to do? Photo or video?
Anyway, bumped into Paris Hilton and grabbed some shots.
