Primary goal: Work with brands to visually tell their stories through authentic one-of a kind adventures, incorporating authentic people who actually use the gear, product, apparel.
I take the work off brand's plates. First, I visually analyze the brand from a social media, website, email, PR, advertisement and print perspectives. After, I consult the company on goals, marketing strategies, target demographics and untapped market reach. I then conceive creative ideas that align. This opens the door to collaborative brainstorming with the company to find the unique avenue to visually tell their story.
I take coastal brands and shoot them in appropriate mountain/desert settings. I take mountain brands and shoot them where applicable in lifestyle and activity in coastal settings to further visually broaden their market. Based in Salt Lake City, two years in counting, I moved from Oceanside, California.
"Feeding the monster". Social media. Statistic on people being more inclined to buy or follow if the person looks like them or place looks like where they live. You think itâ€™d be common sense that of course you could get this longboard online from SoCal company and ride it in mountain towns. But with the pace of scrolling through social media, often times the visual marketing of someone riding a board in coastal- wonâ€™t register with the mountain person and they scroll right past.
