What can I say about RJ ... Well not
enough good things for sure. Never in my career have I
met someone so devoted and passionate about working
on a project. When it came to filming the Supersuckers
20th Anniversary Show we didn't think twice about RJ and
Smartass Press Productions capturing the moment. A
moment that will forever live on: captured forever.
thanks RJ.

RJ - it has been my extreme pleasure working with you  
these last three years. The professionalism portrayed and
executed by you and your staff has been exemplary. All
things promised, were delivered over and above what I

A partial history of the Shake the Shack Rockabilly Ball is
now well documented and spread throughout the
rockabilly nation due to your great work. I am looking
forward to many more years of having you and your crew
on the Shake the Shack team.

I have worked with Smartass Press Productions numerous
times & have always been left pleased by the results. RJ
does what he does because he loves it & this makes him a
pleasure to work with. He is also able to get the angles
and shots without being intrusive to my performance
which I appreciate immensely. In fact I hardly notice that
he's there while the shoot is taking place. Last of all but
perhaps the greatest side effect of his zeal is the fact that
I'm left with a consistent & high-quality product every time.

Every time I see RJ in the house with his camera I know
that the energy of the show will get captured. He knows
how to move in for the killer shots, and that comes across
when you view his work. You really get the best seat in
the house when you see his magic.

Dear RJ:

I just want to thank you for the great video you made at

crew are very professional and passionate about what you
do. The video really captures the spirit of the event and of
the rockabilly scene. I wish you all the best with your future
