We believe one’s work should speak for itself.
Our work was born from shooting the best action and adventure athletes in the wildest places on earth. We’ve learned a thing or ten about the magical soup of teamwork, hustle, sweat and a lot of heart. Our collective drive for excellence is at the core of who we are and what we do as artists, athletes, filmmakers and photographers. Our passion for light, story and humanity transcends genre. This is our life’s work.

It‚Äôs¬†3am¬†at my home in Salt Lake city, but I‚Äôm in a cramped cabin in Alaska trying to steal a few hours sleep before the dawn call time. I‚Äôve spent most of the last half of my life living out of the back of a car, surfing friend‚Äôs couches, at base camps, in dusty camp grounds or like tonight, in ‘local lodging’.
15 years ago, right after picking up my first camera, I wrote in my journal that I was‚Äúperpetually stoked, penniless and loving every minute of it.‚ÄĚ I‚Äôm a bit older now, I have a few more grey hairs, but if you distill it down not much has changed. I love telling stories, I love the energy of the city and the beauty of the mountains, I love culture, I love evoking emotion with film.
I‚Äôve shot and directed commercially on six continents in over thirty countries. Some of my clients include BFGoodrich, RedBull, The North Face, Colorado Tourism, and Eastern Mountain Sports.
