Portraits | TedX Portland

Ian Coyle and his team at Enjoy the Weather are handling the branding and advertising for TedX Portland. They hired me to shoot black and white portraits of this year’s speakers. I’m really happy with how this collaboration turned out. You can see the beautiful implementation on the web here.

Here are a few of my favorites that may not have made it into the billboards or on the web. Enjoy!

Inspired by | Moonrise Kingdom

I worked with Sienna Armstrong on a series of photos inspired by the film Moonrise Kingdom. It was an interesting challenge to interpret the character and color treatment to honor the film but create something that felt real and new.

Vadio | Pool party to find partnerships

Vadio is a Portland-based teach startup that creates video streaming channels for audio streaming services. They contacted us to conceive of, develop and shoot and edit this ad pitching their services to potential audio streaming partners.

Since the creation of the video they trail only Youtube, Snapchat and Facebook in videos streamed per month. Quite a success.

 

Collected Works - brand campaign work

Collected Works is a lifestyle brand that makes backpacks and pouches. They launched in 2012 with a kickstarter campaign. We worked heavily with their team from the start: we produced the photo and videos for a kickstarter campaign that raised 3x it's stated goal. We then launched the brand with an anthemic video, a product introduction and all their lifestyle and product photography needs.

Here are some samples of the work we did for them:
