“So damn stoked our amazing 100 Foot Wave cinematography team took the win at last nights Emmy awards! Also, huge congrats to all the other nominees. ⁣What an honour to even be in the conversation with you all.
“Having validation on this level feels amazing, but the real rewards are in the process. I feel truly lucky and grateful to be able to meet, witness and document inspiring people doing inspiring things, and have an amazing wife in @ritaroup and family enabling me to do it. It’s a huge team effort. Thank you @mcnamara_s, @andrew_cotty @justwhite and all the other people for opening that door to us, which I know is not always easy. ⁣
Biggest thanks to our incredible director Chris Smith who’s work I truly admire, our amazing producer @joelewis and the team at @amplifypics, our gifted writer @thezachshow, the amazing edit team Alex Bayer, Alex Keipper and @qobrienla who have to make sense of the 1000’s of hours of footage we send, and all the other incredible people that weave the tapestry of this show together. I am what I am because of who we all are.”
