Peter de Vries Joins Miller For NAB Masterclasses

News Image
Cinematographer Pieter de Vries will join Miller Camera Support at this year's NAB Show to host a series of free master classes on some of the techniques that have made him a sought-out documentary cinematographer.

Four sessions will run from Monday through Thursday, with each lasting 30 minutes. Miller's Michael Abelev will also host sessions discussing technical specs to take into consideration when choosing a tripod system, each lasting for 30 minutes in length.

"Having traveled to more than 90 countries, I've covered an expansive range of creative content within my work, from coverage of sublime musical performances of Vivaldi to an in-depth scope of the Titanic ruins along the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean," Mr de Vries said.

"I look forward to sharing my stories and some helpful tips with cinematographers at NAB and am thankful to Miller for offering me the platform to share my voice with fellow enthusiasts."
