We all want that 'one in a million' shot of wildlife when we go RVing. But, alas, a smartphone camera just doesn't allow you to safely get close enough to the action. Plus, you've got to spend a LOT of time outside ... waiting & waiting & waiting. Who has time for that?! Greg Balvin does, and he and Sandy Mell have the equipment and the photographer's eyes to get the shots that impress.
Greg started capturing wildlife images in 1977 with a Canon AE-1 and has been a loyal user since. Between 1985 and 2007, he had over 50 images in publication. Starting in May 2007, he teamed up with Sandy Mell and they started MELLVIN VIDEO PRODUCTIONS . Their first DVD "ROCKY MOUNTAIN WILDLIFE" was released in 2009 followed by a 2012 release "ULTIMATE ELK RUT HD". They capture 4K video using Canon 1DX Mark ll cameras with Canon's most powerful L series lenses.
All shots are of "wild" animals taken on public lands. Sandy and Greg don't believe in filming any type of captive animal; no game farms, zoos, personal pets or even shooting on private land. They live in the Tetons and work 260 days a year. Traveling over 35,000 miles/year, they capture only the biggest and best of Rocky Mountain wildlife. You see what they see, nothing is added or removed. They have over 2200 4K & HD video clips that are used in advertising, films, television and education in over 50 countries worldwide.
