About Me

I am JCVdude aka Joe Vass. As a Freelance Videographer, Producer & Photographer my passion & focus is travel and travel related videos; to show the incredible beauty of destinations in the hopes of intercepting and inspiring others to travel. I have chosen YouTube, as my delivery system as it is the World's 2nd Largest Search Engine, it accomodates HD & 3D video and in using it, we are viewed in over 200 Countries World Wide.

With my partner, Cindy Aspden, our JCVdude YouTube Channel is the 17th Most Viewed Channel All Time in Canada. With an average of 100,000 views per day to our broadcast channel, we continue to be featured by Mainstream Media: Google Canada in the London Free Press reported, "Another wildly successful Canadian YouTube star is JCVdude."

Our collections of videos include a wide variety of content as we explore our world and it’s beauty; incredible alpine resorts, beautiful Caribbean resorts, Jazz Festivals & interviews with the great Buddy Guy, Talent Contests, Tours, Nature, Cuisine, Sporting Events, Arts & Culture and more, including Charitable and Non-Profit Events. 

Our philosophy is 'YOLO' ~ You Only Live Once. Tomorrow isn't promised to any of us so live life to it's fullest and with passion. My goal has always been to travel and document through video, the world and it's wonders and beauty. I film and produce video to allow my viewers the feeling that they are 'there' - in the destination themselves and also to whet their appetite to go ~ to travel and see & experience for themselves. 

We love travel! We are passionate about travel and passionate about documenting our travel. Never without our cameras, our day starts before the sun rises and ends late into the night. This is our passion!! 'YOLO'!!

Using the Sony HDR AX2000 in the field

We make our living by filming & editing video for our Channel on YouTube . . .

It’s been 5 days, and this camera is a lot more than a handycam! It’s amazing and I love it! I thought initially that I would only use it 80% of the time, but I already know that I will be using 100% of the time! In fact, I’d love to redo many of videos with it!!

Five days of discovery and learning Using the Sony HDR AX2000. Here are just a few of the great features so far:

  1. It’s instant on! The minute I press record, it's filming!
  2. Films to a Memory stick Pro-Duo. I have 2 memory sticks (32GB) and the capability of filming for up to 20 hours!
  3. The 20X power optical zoom – I’m right there in the action!! I have to redo the whales breaching and surfers in Puerto Vallarta!
  4. The camera has an amazing lens for close-ups!! The color, the detail, the clarity of the 72mm lens is unbelievable
  5. Smooth Slow recording is amazing! I use it a lot and now this camera records for 6 seconds! I was mesmerized watching my viewfinder while filming bees. I can’t wait to get the waves and surfers in Puerto Vallarta.

I wish I’d had this camera a couple years ago! WOW!!
