Wider & Sons Photo Shoot

Wilder & Sons is a Pacific Northwest lifestyle brand based in Portland, Oregon.  With their 2016 collection launch in sight, photographer Suzie Gotis and I worked to build a story that fit in between their previous beach and camping campaigns. That line of thought brought us back to city the brand is based in, situated perfectly between the mountains and coast.  We ben to paint a picture of a day in the life, and gave us a chance to highlight their commuter pants, and give the brand the urban outdoorsy photos it was missing.

In The Studio

I've spent plenty of time in the photo studio creating imagery that we would later use in custom emails to give The Clymb's campaigns unique presence in their members inboxes.  From product selection, to meticulously arranging a lay-down, to coxing a dog into a jacket and climbing helmet and keeping still, and then even post production, attention to details and the patience to get it right is key.

Out & About with The Clymb 

Over the years, The Clymb has taken the time to build their own library of outdoor lifestyle photography to target specific product and audiences, and to save them from having to use so many stock images.  With a small team of creatives, we organized many shoots, and  I've learned from those who came before me that your shoot will move smoothing with clear goals and vision set, and proper planning in place, your shoot can move smoothly. I've worked on scouting location, collectings props, sourcing models, styling and post prodution photo editing, on top of pre-shoot concepting and on-site direction.  These images are used on site, in email campaigns, and beyond.
