Kevin Garrison  Cinematographer | Based in Los Angeles. ☀️ I love long walks in different countries, and candlelit sets.

Cozumel, Mexico. My first real dive into fully fledged underwater cinematography. Huge thanks to @iantakahashi for all the pointers, and for recommending the lovely folks at @hydroflexinc. It wouldn't have been possible without a lot of help and coordination, and @k.orthmann eventually flying this beast down from LA. The current in Cozumel is intense, but the water clarity and light more than made up for it. Can't wait to get back in the water again!

Filming at Chikin-Ha Cenote, just outside of Tulum, Mexico. Such a beautiful location, and just one of many over the last six weeks. I feel enormously lucky in that I consistently seem to end up filming in countries and places I love. @txlfilms - what a rockstar team. Love you all!

The most challenging and arguably the most perfect last day of shooting we could have asked for. Stormy weather meant all cable cars to the top of The Great Wall were shut down. Bad news as we would have to hike 13 cases of gear on our backs to the top of the wall, over a thousand extremely steep steps cut out along a trail - and once we up there, we were on our own. The good news - we were on our own. After an insane and tedious leg-destroyingly difficult hike, we found that we had the entire Beijing stretch of the wall to ourselves, and that the weather had cleared enough to shoot with a beautiful fog passing through in the distance. We spent the rest off the day on an empty wall filming some of the best footage of the last 43 days without another soul in sight and ending on that note is probably the only thing that could make the hike down seem just a little bit lighter for us all.

The Great Wall. The last location of our six week, five country, four continent shoot. Starting in LA, we flew East around the globe to eventually arrive here. Couldn't ask for a more perfect place and peaceful setting to wrap the shoot out.

Shooting alongside this man is one of the greatest privileges I could possibly ask for. Not only is @taronlexton a brilliant Director, film maker and all around storyteller, but he's also an expert Egyptologist with some fascinating theories on how the pyramids were built. Taron - this project has been a dream. Can't wait for the world to see it.

The Great Pyramids have an unreal feel to them. There's something absolutely ancient and mystic about them that resonates through the entire surrounding desert. They are truly a marvel of the world.

Day 35 - Shooting at The Great Pyramids just outside of Cairo, in the middle of summer with @txlfilms. The most amazing crew of individuals I've ever worked with, on the craziest commercial I've ever seen anyone attempt. Couldn't be happier about this one. 📷: @robjumps

My happy place - on the camera dolly. Todd-AO Anamorphics from @camtec_mpc paired with a Red Epic 6K and Fisher 11. Photo by @kspencerjones.

Couldn't be happier to have these two badasses on this project. 1st AD and Co-Producer @inicklane and Script Supervisor @nicolebpase killing it at Crummer Ranch, a stones throw from where I grew up. 📷:@kspencerjones

Post sunset at Crummer Ranch with my right hand man @danielworlock on focus. Nothing like a calm twilight with two enormous ritter fans blowing 45mph winds directly into your faces while you desperately try to get an extra shot in the eleventh hour. Thanks for keeping it sharp, Dan. Photo by the incredible @nicolebpase

Shooting on the Salt Flats with new favorite setup. For the gear inclined, a Red Dragon with Todd-AO Anamorphic glass and Preston FF from @camtec_mpc, my lovely @BrightTangerine Misfit Mattebox and @teradek Bolt 600 for wireless monitoring. But most importantly, having a killer crew and adorable talent is what matters most.

Racing across the Bonneville Salt Flats in the middle of a storm, after an amazing shoot day with your best friends? Check. 📷@robjumps
