When you work with the best location manager, you find the best locations, like this beautiful backyard for our party scene.
Finding a healthy forest can be challenging after so many destructive forest fires in our beautiful southwest. This is one of the images from our 5 day location scout in the White Mountains of northern Arizona.
A tight budget doesn't limit our creativity. Our DP for the Walden production was also a talented director and still photographer.
Our client was happy to see continuity of style using the same DP/Director for this photo shoot as for their TV spots featuring water.
The Director of this shoot jumped in as second camera. He's a cool guy who makes sure all the images he needs are captured from every angle.
We had a vision to feature a bald eagle in this spot for our water/energy client. But considering budgetary restraints, our resourceful PM came up with the idea of contacting a local avian rescue. With a donation to their efforts, we were able to get both a bald eagle and a hawk for the shoot and it was a win-win for everyone.
Staging as many scenarios in one location is key when we have a tight budget. We've staged over 12 different shoots in this home.
Here's the avian rescue coordinator working with our principal talent, Aurora, the bald eagle.
Studio shoots are always fun. This was for a beautiful black and white compilation featuring real people over a white cyc for our local Diocese shoot, one of our favorite clients.

Here's another example of the beautiful stills our DP/Director took for the water/energy company campaign.
Our comedy Director wanted functional life size cups for a Circle K cup race commercial. So we worked with one of the most talented Production Designers in town and got the Director exactly what he wanted.
Yes, that's a real madagascar cockroach. And yes, our principal talent is not just talented, he's brave.
Shower scenes can be difficult to stage, but not for our experienced art department.
