Rick Steves: Blog Gone Europe, 7 Feb 2011 [cached]
With the help of our favorite Roman tour guide, Francesca Caruso, my TV crew ' producer Simon Griffith, cameraman Karel Bauer, and I ' enjoyed weaving the greatest sights in Florence and Rome into five new episodes of Rick Steves' Europe, due out with an entire new series in the fall of 2012.
Watching this, I'm thankful for how Simon Griffith (our producer/director) and Karel Bauer and Peter Rummel (our cameramen) make this work both gratifying and so enjoyable.

As long as we've got our ..., 26 April 2006 [cached]
As long as we've got our talented crew (the hardworking spirit of producer/director Simon Griffith, editor Steve Cammarano, and cameramen Karel Bauer and Peter Rummel), underwriting support from American Airlines (for which we are very grateful), and the support of our traveling viewers...we've only just begun.
Our crew of three (host / writer - me, producer / director - Simon Griffith, and cameraperson - one of three Seattle-area shooters) works six 12-hour days to shoot one 30-minute episode of "Rick Steves' Europe."
While Simon has always been in Europe overseeing every inch of footage shot, this year Steve traveled too - taking our Best of Europe tour for a quick look at Europe's most exciting stops.
Producer Simon Griffith is the behind-the-scenes hero of our new series. A New Zealander living in Seattle, he was one of the original "Bill Nye the Science Guy" producers. Now, rather than toting smoking beakers, Simon lugs a 30-pound tripod in 100-degree heat to the top of St. Peter's basilica... just in case it's needed. With Simon - both a great traveler and a great writer - our script evolves as we go. Between shows, Simon and I have a tradition called "scrubbing the script," in which we spend the four-hour drive to our next destination making every word earn its keep.
Simon directs with a Kiwi flair. When we're on take 21 and getting nowhere, he hollers, "Let's knock this one on the head, mate! And when things are going well, it's "a box of fluffy ducks! He directed each day on the road and oversaw the editing - another 100 days back in Seattle.
I love the collaboration with my producer/director Simon Griffith (who is on location for every inch of footage and then overseeing the post-production back in our Seattle-area offices) and with our camera-person.
Rick Steves' Iran: Travel Journal, 3 Mar 2010 [cached]
I'll travel with my typical skeleton crew of three: Simon Griffith (director), Karel Bauer (cameraman), and me. We'll also have the help of two Iranian guides: One is a Persian-American friend who lives in Seattle.
Suddenly it occurs to Rick's producer, Simon, that the plane is filled with Iranians…and everyone has been given a metal knife.
With the sun low and the colors warm, Simon, Karel, and Rick are enjoying a great day of filming.
