Lee Herbet and his team at Capture.ink have helped some of the biggest brands in the world tell their stories. He’s a cinematographer with a passion for teaching photography/video and editing and he delivers workshops all over the world. Lee also writes for a number of online photography and video sites on topics ranging from reviews to “how to” articles…and … he’s a big fan of OWC Products.
In this conversation, Cirina Catania and Lee talk about everything from globetrotting, to using empathy when dealing with difficult people, what you need to know in order to succeed, gear (of course), the DSLR vs. cinema camera debate, iPhones, our pet peeves, how to travel with lithium batteries, and lots more…stand by, we’re talking the talk and walking the walk, here on OWC RADiO.
This episode was edited on Final Cut, and written with help from Lumberjack System’s Builder with music from Trent Thompson on Megatrax. Ted Limpert voices the OWC RAdio Intro and we are grateful to everyone on our team and the folks at OWC who make this show possible.
