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.

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.

Black History Month - Celebration with music and songs - YouTube



While traveling through the USA last summer I made it a point to drive by Montgomery and Birmingham Alabama, two centers that played a key role in the Civil Rights Movement.

My knowledge about what took place at that time is limited to remembering watching the news on TV, in black and white, early 60's this was, and the images of the brutality unleashed by the police and army on the Black citizens was a crime against humanity.

Now through Google and the internet I've learned that we only saw the smallest of the injustices that took place in those dark times in the US history. Then last night on PBS I watched the Documentary, 'Slavery: by any other name' and was once again touched by the the plight of the blacks in America.

I highly recommend you Google PBS and Slavery: by any other name, and watch it.
