HWAM/YFC Fundraising Video (Docu-Style)


We were approached by a local agency that does a lot of work in the community to help create a fundraising benefit video for two non-profits in the Rogue Valley: Hearts with a Mission (HWAM) and Youth for Christ (YFC). We wrote, shot and edited this docu-style six minute video centered on a the story of a homeless teen named Diana who’s life was drastically changed (saved) by the cooperation of these two youth outreach organizations.

Quantum Innovations Image Campaign: Stills and Web Videos


Quantum came to us needing photos and videos as a part of an overall branding and messaging initiative. We created a campaign and have started with three videos for them: a product video to highlight their new Fusion-M ophthalmic lens coating machine, a video showcasing their state-of-the-art testing lab and another video focusing on their ‘Made in the USA’ standards. We shot on-location in their manufacturing facility in Southern Oregon.

Brammo Empulse R


Being motorcycle riders ourselves, we love shooting these guys. Wes Siler of the popular and influential Hell for Leather bike mag came to test ride the new Brammo Empulse R in Ashland, Oregon (first outside opinion meant high stakes!). Brammo hired us to document the two days that Wes was visiting the Brammo facilities, riding the Empule R and conducting interviews with the Brammo guys.

Brammo asked for editorial style video and photography. What that usually means is that we don’t set up shots (i.e. lighting, blocking, etc.), we just capture the action. It was especially fun to capture a couple of great riders like Wes and professional Brammo rider Eric Bostrom as they literally rode two Empulse R’s to try and break them.

Polaris Photo and Video Shoot on the Oregon Dunes

We went to the Oregon Dunes with Motorcycle USA to capture photo and video of two ATVs they were testing. If you’ve never ridden one before, it’s not like riding a bike. It’s fast, it’s technical and at times you just can’t wipe the smile off your face. The Oregon Dunes are especially great because it feels like you’re on an extraterrestrial playground.
It was a 4:30am wake-up call (7-11 coffee) at our place on the coast and sunrise on the beach (blocked by those dang coastal clouds). None-the-less, it turned in to a beautiful day for some great photography with friends. Once or twice a crowd gathered to watch the riders do inhumane/un-human things with the ATVs but most of the weekday we had to ourselves. We laughed, we rolled and we stopped for fish and chips afterward. See the pics and videos below or read the full article.

Here’s a short excerpt from the article:
