Over the last 5 years, planetMitch has become a leading authority in the world of DSLR video and photography.
He has written over 2,500 articles and blog posts covering various advancements and news regarding the latest cameras, software, filming breakthroughs, and more for his blog — planet5D.
planet5D has become the ultimate resource for insider industry information, educating hundreds of thousands every month, and Mitch is the orchestrator of this wealth of valuable information.
He co-produced the first Canon EOS 5D Mark III short on the planet called “Incident On Marmont Avenue.”
planetMitch sources his information straight from the top industry professionals, and has interviewed over 40 of the most successful names in DSLR production, including Vincent Laforet, Shane Hurlbut, Rodney Charters, Gale Tattersall, Lisa Bettany, Barry Andersson, Richard Harrington, and Catherine Hall.
planetMitch has perfected his ability to share the lessons he absorbs from the experts with filmmakers around the universe, as he facilitates forums, writes articles, and has been featured on roughly 100 podcasts over the last few years.
A lover of photography since his early days, he graduated to selling stock photos to make a little bit of spare cash. It wasn’t much, but it allowed him to upgrade to better cameras as well as computers, and it wasn’t taking money away from feeding his family.
He loves the stories that the still image can tell. In the summer of 2008, he read a story written by Arnold Kim called “I Quit My Job” — Arn is the owner of macrumors.com. He started macrumors in 2000 as a hobby, and by 2008 he was making more money with the site than he was on his day job, so he quit. The surprise to the story is that he was a doctor making more than six figures! Right then and there, planetMitch dreamed about doing the same thing.
September 2008 rolled around, and Canon announced this new version of the incredible 5D — the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. It was the first Canon DSLR to shoot full HD video and the earth moved! (It really was a huge deal in the photography world.) planetMitch knew if there was ever a chance to ride a wave of something he was really passionate about, this was it — and the blog at planet5D.com was born and thru planetMitch’s enthusiasm and passion, planet5D flourished.
planet5D is now one of the most popular DSLR video blogs on the planet, and he is making a full-time living from blogging.
He couldn’t be happier!
