Working around public transit buses is no big deal for videographer Jacob Hoffman. Not when you consider Hoffman spent three years “riding the chute” capturing action for the PBR: Professional Bull Riders.
Minnesota-born Hoffman worked as a freelance cameraman shooting PBR events across several states, including the national finals in Las Vegas. “It keeps you on your toes,” jokes Hoffman. “You don’t want to miss that one shot where the rider breaks a record, or something spectacular happens.”
In his new job as a Media Specialist in the Office of Communications and Marketing at TAPS Public Transit, Hoffman will shoot, direct and produce news and feature videos for the agency’s website and will work with other departments on intra-agency training programs.
