The Ansel Adams Gallery in the Yosemite Valley is where multimedia journalist Richard ‘Koci’ Hernandez was first inspired to take pictures at age 12. He hadn’t been back since and this was my first trip to Yosemite, so it was pretty exciting for both of us. We were joined by Creative Inspirations Director Scott Erickson and Cinematographer/Editor Mia Shimabuku.
After an amazing shoot in Yosemite, we shot at Koci’s home in the East Bay of San Francisco, as well as downtown in the Mission District and on campus at UC Berkeley where he teaches at the graduate school of Journalism. There’s almost always a camera in his hands and we were frequently pointing cameras at each other.
Our days on location were filled with awe and inspiration. From the waterfalls in Yosemite to the amazing work Koci is doing in depressed areas of the city to interviews in historic Northgate Hall, one of UC Berkeley’s historic landmarks. The images and narrative that comprise this installment of lynda.com’s flagship documentary series are moving and thought provoking. Our team is pleased and proud to present our latest Creative Inspirations documentary, Richard Koci Hernandez, Multimedia Journalist.
