Selecting a path in Photoshop

Check out this quick video I made of the process I use to remove the background of a photo, for use mostly in online commerce. I can add voiceover of me explaining what I am doing, if that is of interest to anyone. Just let me know!

Drone Footage

Last summer I did a few edit jobs for HiFly Photography, a Texas based company that provides drone footage for real estate companies. I was pleasantly surprised when I received footage from them of a building that is  right near my home! Check it out and remember, ShootJoeC can provide a range of services from shoot planning to contract editing and beyond!


Loudoun County Photography

One of my favorite places to shoot in the world just happens to be right where I live, Loudoun County Virginia! I take every opportunity I can to photograph or film anything here, from real estate, automobiles, portraits and even the occasional wedding! Here are a few of my favorites from the years for your enjoyment!


This photo of my dear friends was taken at Blumont Vineyard in Blumont, VA, the highest point in Loudoun County I might add! The day before my sweet Penelope was born too!

This is a marketing video I did for my favorite client ever, TYG Homes! It is located in the village of Paeonian Springs  just outside of Leesburg, Virginia. This tiny village is especially cool because it served as a vacation spot for city folk, starting way back in the 1890’s!

Multi-Camera Clips

I am putting together some training videos and working in Final Cut makes it easy to work with projects containing multiple camera angles. Thanks guys!

Quick Cut 15

As I mentioned in my previous post I have been tasked with creating a fifteen second version of a thirty second spot I made several years back. Between the original production and now my computer unfortunately crashed, and although I have all of my files backed up I did not have my final cut project files backed up. This means I had to start from scratch in Final Cut, which is kind of a pain but also allows me to cut it the way I would’ve if I knew what I was doing the first time around.

Here is a rough draft, please comment and let me know what you think!

Eastern Motors TV Spots

Last week I received an email from my long time client, Eastern Automotive Group. I was given two audio files (15s & 30s) in addition to about ten minutes of random footage from different lots. I chopped up the ten minutes worth of footage into little clips that I could easily swap in and out of the different cuts. Here is one of my favorites.
