TEK Products David Esquire Photography ShotOniPhoneHappy New Year from EPHQ!  Have I got a totally MEGA experience to share with you as we kick off 2017!!

As you had seen last year, I filmed the EPIC movie: “The Perfect Life” entirely on an iPhone and Nokia 808 Pureview featuring music by Grammy Award winning artist: Moby.

Then there was the WORLD’S FIRST destination wedding ENTIRELY filmed AND #ShotOniPhone SIMULTANEOUSLY for Vickie & Travis in Wisconsin (LINK).

There was the cool video filmed at Motorwerks MINI that was again ENTIRELY filmed and #ShotOniPhone (LINK) and the Halloween Zumba event at the Emma B. Howe YMCA in Minneapolis, also filmed and #ShotOniPhone (LINK).

Well…  while 2016 was filled with me travelling around the United States photographing and filming weddings, grad nights, commercials, rockumentaries and more, there was all the work going on behind-the-scenes for TEK Products because they…


The first commercial was best quoted by the company president: Mr. Tim Graupman that I was able to: “… see a vague idea turned into such a strong visual presentation.”  This year’s commercial he said he “couldn’t believe the commercial was the same length because we put so much more content into it.”

Throughout 2016, we had the complex process of writing, re-writing, story-boarding, and even more challenging; coordinating schedules for filming, casting, and more.  But because we had all worked on the first commercial so well, we understood what we were up against and employed the veritable cornucopia of talent we all brought to the table to take their 2nd commercial to the next level.

Since their first commercial was ENTIRELY filmed and #ShotOniPhone – I had to do the same for this one too!  Especially since Bentley Motors AND New Balance continues to use the iPhone for their commercials.  You can check them out HERE.

Employing The BEST Equipment In The Industry!

As always – the Beastgrip Pro for my iPhone 7 Plus is the ONLY way to go to house my “camera.”  Then there’s my JOBY GorillaPod Focus with Ballhead X for the hard to get shots in tight places.  And in a cleanroom environment, that was key.

Then there is the iRig Mic-Lav from IK Multimedia which has amazing features, advantages & benefits – making it a no-brainer to choose.

Mounted on my Beastgrip Pro with my flawless wide angle lens from Canon, I used the CN-LUX360 5400K Dimmable LED Video Light Lamp by Neewer.

Combine all that with a suite of software by Adobe Creative Cloud – I had to say: “Game On” to quote the epic movie: “Wayne’s World” – which by the way is RETURNING to the theatre for its 25th anniversary (LINK)!
