Maglia Rosa

The Hampsten name is synonymous with legendary bike racing. In 1988, a kid from North Dakota stunned the international cycling community with a gutsy ride that won him the Giro d’Italia – one of only three Grand Tours on the cycling calender including the Tour de France (a race Hampsten was highly successful in as…

The Smartest Generation.

Back in February, Matthew along with Producer Craig Stevens, lit out into the vast mountain-scape of Western Montana to capture a new campaign for Montana State Fund.  MSF is Montana’s proprietary workers’ compensation fund and is celebrating 100 years of the workmen’s comp act.  Getting this act off the ground was no small feat considering…

Here’s a glimpse behind the scenes of the Fences “Arrows” shoot. We were in a top secret location in South Seattle for most of the shoot.

Hampsten 7-Eleven Tribute

Cycle Exif picked up some of my shots of the new Hampsten track bike.  This bicycle was built in homage to the 7-Eleven machine Andy Hampsten rode to win the 1988 Giro d’Italia.  The first American to do so.  With a serious eye on racing, this bike was made for the “boards” at the new…

SLGFF “Relay”

A fast paced action filled chase is on – a small band of cinephiles and filmmakers come together to snub the conservative establishment.  We rallied the troops and partnered with the big guns of Frank Unlimited to make the trailer celebrating the 15th Annual Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Director/DP: Matthew J. Clark Lead…
