ABOUT rudypictures


I'm Rudy Gelenter and if you reached this site you probably got my name from a wonderful person that has worked with me.  I have been behind the camera for over 20 years and have shot pretty much just about everything.  From cooking shows for The Food Network, to kayaking next to penguins in South Africa for The Travel Channel, to corporate videos for Microsoft in Icelandic fjords, to hanging out of a Huey helicopter for the History Channel, and to riding in patrol cars in Alaska... It's all about the story.   What's yours?
