About Backpack Films

My focus is on nature, travel and outdoor lifestyle photography and video for editorial, educational and conservation use. I offer complete services from in the field to post production and final delivery using professional gear for both image and sound recording.

My clients have included an Equine based non-profit for youth-at-risk programs, a psychologist who is a published author, vision quest guide and retreat leader, a few family owned dairies who make organic cheese and yogurt for national stores, vineyards with rustic tasting rooms and resorts and vacation rentals emphasizing outdoor lifestyles.

All inquiries are welcome. I enjoy collaborating with clients and bringing their story and vision to life while offering the best packages for a client's budget.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I have short marketing videos for small businesses, individuals and non-profits, I tend shoot mini-documentary style to help tell their story and share their accomplishments. With photography, projects are about telling their story within a limited amount of pictures- more like a photojournalist.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. I bring a positive attitude and strong work ethic to everything I take on.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. With visual technology being what it is today, I think it is important to understand the difference between what a professional can bring to the table versus trying to capture your visual story by cutting corners.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. What can the job candidate bring to the project, what tools are needed to get it done and how will the client and candidate work together successfully.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I have been fortunate to work with individuals and non-profits that have a very specific mission and that offers me an opportunity to work creatively with them. We didn't always go for the expected pictures or video and the results worked very well them.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I love the outdoors and being immersed in the colors, shapes and patterns of nature. I meet a lot of interesting people from all walks of life who have the same passion for the outdoors.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. I am constantly expanding my education since the technology is rapidly changing. I attend media and technology related expos, I use social media to connect with other professionals in the industry. Currently, I am working on my Master Naturalist Certification for both volunteer opportunities but also to engage my mind from a conservation perspective when working with related non-profit projects.
