    Boston Marathon Photo Bridge “BTS” Blog

    To the news photojournalist the Boston Marathon isn’t about training for months in advance of the big day. Nor is it about shopping for fancy new running shoes and matching running attire.  For us it’s all about stringing and tie wrapping long video and audio cables under VIP stands and along the filthy gutters of Boylston Street. It’s about lugging heavy equipment up steep, rickety and narrow steps to the staging platform where around two dozen photogs will claim their tiny footprint and camp out  in […]

    Making of Air Traffic Controller “Brightest Moon”

    For those who have tried their hand at producing, directing and/or shooting music videos… you know the difficulties involved. Unless the band is already “sold out” and has boatloads of cash, you will usually be working on a very low budget – or in my case – no budget. So how did my friend, singer/songwriter Dave Munro and I brainstorm the official new “Brightest Moon” video for his band Air Traffic Controller (ATC) with no money and limited crew? I’ve […]

    “Notes On Video” Flour Bakery Promo

    I first met blogger Michael Murie when he answered one of my tweets on twitter I sent putting out the call for a crew and a glidecam for a music video I was producing for my friend Dave Munro and his band, Air Traffic Controller. Michael sent back a DM asking if he could shoot a “behind the scenes” video for his blog “Notes On Video” while I was working on our video, “Brightest Moon.” I said, “Yeah sure. Come down!” […]

    Rick Macomber on The Steve Katsos Show

    So here I am doing some shtick for a handheld camera in a dressing room at Arlington Cable studios with funny man Steve Katsos. We’re going over the pronunciation of my last name while Steve preps for his weekly cable TV program: The Steve Katsos Show. How did I get here? Me? A guy who always works behind the lens? Rewind to months earlier when I had agreed to shoot a music video for my friend Dave Munro’s band, Air […]

    This Is Flour Bakery

    “Make life sweeter… eat dessert first.” This is the motto of Joanne Chang, pastry chef/owner of Flour Bakery in Boston. She has written a new book about her favorite dessert recipes. Working with Joanne and her staff was a breeze. And the fringe benefits were SWEET! I was fed sample treats all day during the shoot. The book is called “Flour” and this is her story. Flour Bakery is well known for their famous Sticky Buns. Jo’s recipe beat out […]

    Northeastern Undergrad Macomber Productions Promo

    Northeastern University contracted Macomber Productions to produce this new promotional film for their website. We were on a tight schedule but managed to get most of the shoot done in one day, including the b roll. For this shoot we used a combination of softbox tungsten light for some of the interviews and soft natural window light with 56K backlight for others. Since the schedule was tight and there was minimal setup time for lighting, it was key to have […]

    Wishing Well… Roma Style

    Wishing Well…Roma Style Cinematography- From the moment wheels were down… my recent trip to Rome was nothing short of a massive assault on my senses. The sights of ancient Roman architecture, the sounds of a beautiful romantic language and the street buzz of the Vespa scooter, the smell of Italian food wafting from every charming stone path alleyway and the unforgettable taste of creamy Gelato. This city is truly a photographer’s dream come true. So I had to soak in […]
