Music Video Award Nomination!

I got some wonderful news today!  The music video I worked on last summer with Justin Mayotte and Shanna Jackman has been nominated for MUSIC VIDEO OF THE YEAR (solo artist) at the Limelight Magazine Awards 2016!  I was a 2nd shooter/camera operator on this particular shoot.

Many thanks to Justin and Shanna for including me on this project – one with such a positive message of support for our veterans.

Voting is open until March 4th – so throw a vote our way! <— Click here to vote!

I’m going to be in the new Ghostbusters movie (hopefully)!

Last June, I saw an ad online for an open casting cattle call for the new Ghostbusters movie filming later that summer throughout the Boston area.  I showed up on a chilly rainy day in South Boston, waited in line with a printed “selfie”, and dropped off my measurements with the casting company.  They told me (and the hundreds of others behind me): “We’ll call you if we need you.  Thank you.  NEXT!”

Miraculously, 2 weeks later I got a phone call from BD Casting asking if I was available the following Tuesday – but I missed the call!  The roll was of a waiter in a fancy dinner scene.  Art imitating life! – this was my calling!  I rang them back and they said they had found everyone they needed for that scene.   Cue the sad snoopy walk of sadness.

Cut to next Monday night.  Location: Five Horses Tavern.  I was bartending the evening shift, happily slinging beers to the locals when I got another call from the same number I had missed previously.  I broke all the rules and answered, squatting down behind the bar to find out what adventure I was in for.  They needed me the next day, Tuesday, for the dinner scene I had previously missed out on – but this time as a dinner guest, black ties and tuxedos only!  Hurrah!

Long story short, I worked a 15 hour day on the set of Ghostbusters the next day.  Funnily enough, I got to work with a long-lost friend from high school, Chelsea LeBeau-Heuter – fellow extra.  Our scene was intensely funny, brilliantly directed by Paul Feig (Freaks & Geeks, Bridesmaids, Spy Movie, etc).  I reluctantly can’t share more about the scene due to the NDA I signed, but I have my fingers crossed that the scene we filmed that day makes it into the final cut!

Feb 11/2016 UPDATE – No trailer…yet!  Hopefully in a week or two!

Music Videos!

Over the past year, I’ve worked on a few music videos for some very talented individuals.  2016 is shaping up for at least a few more!  As always, I’m grateful to Justin Mayotte Productions for always thinking of me as a stills photographer, behind the scenes, 2nd shooter, etc.

Jessie Chris Album Cover Photoshoot & BTS Video!

RossKavPhoto is back in action!  I’ve got a treasure trove of shoots to share with you – the first being from constant collaborator Jessie Chris!

From working on her music video for Chameleon to having the honour of shooting her Wildfire album cover, Jessie is always working hard on creating something special for her fans.  We shot at the stunning Sudbury Grist Mill for the day.  Fun behind the scenes story:  After ordering pizzas to be delivered to us, Jessie literally ran a half mile chasing after the poor delivery driver who drove right past us!

Look, Ma!  I’m on iTunes!

PULSE Magazine Swimsuit Photoshoot

On shelves July 2 will be the Pulse Magazine 2015 Swimsuit Issue.  Pick your copy up at your local bar, pub and shop in and around the Worcester, MA area starting next week.  I assisted my constant collaborator Justin Mayotte once again for a fun, relaxed and inspiring shoot!  The models were nice enough to let me shoot some one-on-one’s with them after we got the shots for the magazine (Thank you models!).  Below are some BTS and a couple other shots from the day.

On Set with Shanna Jackman // Music Video

Last weekend was action packed on the set of Nashville recording artist Shanna Jackman‘s newest music video for her song “We’ve Got Your Back.”  At one point, I was hanging out the back of an SUV with a motorcycle gang driving directly towards me.  Directed by constant collaborator Justin Mayotte, I was actually a videographer for this shoot – instead of shooting stills.  The pictures below are from Steph Cerrato.  I thoroughly enjoyed shooting video, and want(need) to practice more on keeping my hands steady – and not forgetting the tripods!  The video should be out by Memorial Day and I will post it once it gets released!

Jeff Timmons (98 Degrees) & Jessie Chris

Shot a couple of days into the new year, Jeff Timmons (of 98 Degrees and Men of the Strip fame) sang a duet with Jessie Chris, a talented up and coming Nashville recording artist.  They sang “I Do (Cherish You)”.  Filmed at the famous Wilbur Theatre in Boston, MA.  Video directed by: Justin Mayotte.

BMAX Fitness Video Shoot

Another amazing shoot and January isn’t even done yet!  Andy Berler, official trainer of the Patriots Cheerleaders (among many other skills!), has created an impressive workout and fitness company called BMAX.  He was assisted by the fit, talented and beautiful Lauren, Kristen and Madelyn of the Patriots Cheerleaders, the day after their AFC Championship win (without missing a beat, might I add)!  Prepare to Activate!

Check out BMAX.

Director of the video: Justin Mayotte.
