I had the pleasure of photographing the Firemen of the First Coast for the January Issue of First Coast Magazine. We visited fire stations in Fernandina Beach, Duval County and St. Johns County to capture four two page spreads, the cover photo and details for a web gallery.
One Spark, the revolutionary crowdfunding festival in Downtown Jacksonville, drew over 260,000 attendees in 2014, ranging from the general public, influential artists, non-profits, and small businesses, to executive leaders from Fortune 500 companies across the globe. I am proposing the following photography project to capture a small representation of this diverse group:
In recent years, I received many requests from my corporate and commercial clients to do small video projects. Unfortunately, I had to turn down these types of shoots because I didn't have the skill set or equipment needed to complete them on a level to which my clients were accustomed. So, in 2014 I set out to add a new service line to my business. In these two short years, I have developed the technical and creative skills necessary to complete video projects with the same high level of quality, creativity, and personality that my corporate, commercial and advertising clients have enjoyed from Michael LeGrand Photography for the last 10 years.
I am also an FAA part 107 Licensed and Insured Drone Pilot. The drone, when used properly, can be used to add a beautiful or dramatic shot to any film project. If you have the right pilot and camera operator, it is an easy way to add production value to your film.
