Grammy Nominated Artist - Ne-Yo - Frames a Shot for Jim Folliard

Jim Folliard of Gearshift.tv waited patiently for Ne-Yo to approach the velvet ropes that separated my lens and his face.  When the time came, Ne-Yo worked the camera like a pro.  He gave me a few poses and one that will be my "Photo of the Week"!  Dave & Ray brought out the ladies to Josephine.

Since his debut, Ne-Yo has had five top ten songs on the Billboard Hot 100 as a lead artist and two number-one albums on the Billboard 200. Ne-Yo has also amassed a catalog of chart-topping songs that he has written for other artists.

Promoters & Nightclubs turn to Gearshift for brilliant photos and video that capture the essence of the evening.  Call 877-477-STUDIO.

Mike Tomlin Gives Back to the Youth in the Hampton Roads Area

Superbowl Coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Vernon Lee Jr. and Carl Francis Jr. conducted their annual footbal camp weekend in the Hampton Roads area at Christopher Newport University.  It's a free camp for both kids and high school footballers.  Gearshift has been covering the event for 4 years and this year we utilized HDSLR technology to capture video images that are frankly spectacular.  My right hand man Don Napoleon clicked off most of the photography while I handled the video duties.
