This is James Holland. He does the lion's share of the camera work and editing for Cooking with Rockstars, but his contribution to the show far exceeds these tasks.
It was James' brilliant idea to shoot the show in a limo to solve the problem of having enough light/time/quiet to do a video shoot near rock clubs at sound check time. In addition to the practical advantages, the limo has been a lot of fun for us and for the bands.
James has also raised the overall quality of the show dramatically, thanks to his fastidious eye for lighting and careful attention to the audio. He also brings real editing skills to the mix. Just compare recent episodes to early ones such as Rilo Kiley or Interpol and the improvements are clear.
James has his own video production business, Dutch Angle Films, based out of Brooklyn, NY, and I highly recommend him to any bands looking for someone to create a music video. Here is a sample of his work, a video for "1st Day of Summer" by my friends, The Fly Seville. More examples of his work (at better hi-res quality) are available here.
