Twenty years. Thirty countries. Getting to where you need to be for the shot has become the backbone of our mission. East Coast-based with a global portfolio of images, Chris is a serious athlete who endeavors to create visuals that inspire and alight viewers with a sense of possibility. At home in the vertical world, he's endured the blistering cold and thin air of the Himalaya, knife-edge ridgelines in BC, and steep mountain faces of the Alps. Chris has photographed on assignment worldwide, maintains a client base of Fortune 500 companies, and has his work featured by National Geographic and other publications.
No cheering fans and no referees - just human and nature, pushing the boundaries of strength, emotion, and mind in the great stages of the planet.
Big names, bright lights, and the pressure of thousands of fans hanging on the edge of competition.
Telling stories through still frames.
A small collection of those at the top of their game doing their thing.
The land of scoreboards, fan legions, and lucrative sponsorship contracts.
In a grand place where there's more riding on performance than something to fill your trophy-case.
Emotion and energy through storytelling in real-life environments.
You can't bottle talent, but you can capture it on film.
Building a successful portrait has many steps, from location to lighting to wardrobe. Yet the most important part of this style of photography is psychology: developing a connection between subject and artist.
Whether intimate VIP affairs or conferences of thousands, our embedded style of still and video content capture is riding the corporate edge of visual production.
Our work has taken us to all kinds of locations, making the most out of visual space and both natural and supplemental light sources.
Making your goods look great.
We work closely with a number of international agencies and know how much goes into planning major events. From VIP hospitality on PGA tour to week-long executive summits - we've got it covered.
On set or on location, we work with you to plan the best use of subject and environment to tell your story.
Whether from a tripod or a helicopter, interior or exterior, small closet or underground tunnel, we've got the firepower to make your location shine.
Cell phone photography won't sell your product. Our team includes set designers, food stylists, lighting experts and quite possibly the most aggressive polish-jockey this side
of Mr. Clean.
From the superlative depths of Death Valley to the high peaks of the Himalaya, I feel home at most in the mountains. The great equalizers, you have to earn your way as each step towards the summit takes you one step further from comfort.
Of all places the desert makes you work to access its beauty - from gut-wrenching thirst, dodging angry plants like mean old dogs, and nevermind that it's constantly trying to lose you with sands that swallow trails with a scant breeze.
It's said that the ocean holds the last light of day, adding to the secrets it holds below its pulsing surface.
As our forests dwindle, think of your favorite tree, and how you would feel if should befall the same murderous fate as its brethren rooted in forests damned by development.
“I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams...”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupery
“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and
above the clouds.”
― Edward Abbey
"The care of rivers is not a question of rivers
but of the human heart."
― Shozo Tanaka
"The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness."
― John Muir
Writing to lighting, scriptwriting to storyboard to screening, we've got your content well-covered. Our team collaborates on concept, while specifically handling the tasks of words, graphics, and packaging.
Our team has worked around the world in all sorts of environments, with VIPs as big as they get: US Presidents, A-list talent, and athletes at the top of their prime. It's experience on which you can truly rely.
We can handle your day-of retrospective video screenings. We can handle your "I need it emailed immediately." We HAVE handled an onsite gallery of 400 printed, mounted, and hung 24x36 photos shot same day at a PGA tour event. Let us get it done for you on time.
