I love doing what I do:

Recording interesting people
in interesting places
talking about interesting things.

Experience has taught me that a great deal of the most important work is done while the cameras are still in their cases: listening to the needs of clients for the particular project being discussed, working closely with them to formulate appropriate ways to get the right messages to their audience effectively, and collaborating as we imagine what kinds of visual material would convey those messages. Then, on shooting days, clear expectations, impeccable preparation, and working with people to get the best out of them (while still respecting their valuable time) always result in recordings that are more natural and human, as well as being more palatable for the audience to consume.
