Check out this video we did with the Colorado band, Bop Skizzum. The song was written specifically for break dancers, no lyrics and a constant beat! The band wanted to use local break dancers and use locations throughout Denver for the video. If you’re from Denver, do you recognize any locations in the video?

New Nikon Gear

September 27, 2012

Today was Christmas in our office. No there wasn’t an early Colorado snowfall – but the Nikon gear we bought finally came in.

At Rich Clarkson, we have always relied on Nikon gear as we find the capabilities, features, and quality to be top-notch and always pushing technology forward.

Nikon gear has helped us take the best editorial and sports (and anything really) photography over the 25 years of our company.

The new features of the D800 and the D4 now push the digital photography field even further with higher quality photography, more features, and video capabilities.

The D800 specifically has helped us move further into DSLR filmmaking that has made an epic mark into multimedia and video production.

To find out more information on the great cameras, check out the D4 and the D800.
