Very neat. Always interesting to see how Joe works - sometimes it's a whole crew, but it's those moments where he's a one-man production team that amazes and informs me about the creative process.

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.

Wow. I had weak knees just looking at the video. I know that I couldn't climb out of the tower (or even lean out) to get the images he captured. Very impressive.

One of the comments on the Tube was "I p***ed my pants at about 2.21" (and excuse my French!). Actually, I can proudly say the same, except for me you replace "at" with "from" (and a bit before 2.21...)

Very neat. Thanks very much for posting the video. I'm a big fan of Joe. I've taken some workshops he's taught about the use of strobes and other artificial light. I learned a lot from him.

I love some of the shots he took from the tower they showed in the video, but the image of the tower at night, barely lighted, looking up the tower, at about the 40sec mark really wowed me.

Breathtaking! I could never ever do that assignment. As they say, "If you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch." (or, in this case, stay on the ground floor )

If you really want to get queasy, watch this video of an antenna worker climbing a 1700' tower.

Yeah, I have a visceral reaction to that antenna tower video every time I watch it. Nerves of steel.
