I shot American Chopper when Paul Jr. began his own business right after he left Orange County Choppers. I was shooting under the director of photography, Omar Saleem.
That was an important time in the history of the show as well as a critical time in the lives of the cast. The struggle within the Teutal family was truly high drama. We had to shoot it live. There were no do-overs or staged scenes which really kept us on our toes. It's one of the shows that I think about the most.
