Film for Outdoor Destination Marketing
Our roots are in the outdoors, and that’s where we tell your best stories. Our videos are created to inspire travel, showcase your infrastructure projects, and convey the exceptional qualities of your destination. In short, we make films that draws people to amazing places.
Our style is clean, modern, cinematic and approachable. It’s narrative, without looking staged or corny, and authentic without foregoing the tools of the trade that make for clean, steady shots. Our freelance photographers and assistants are well-known to us (Suzanne has worked for years alongside some of the best photographers in the country), adventurous, have a healthy level of fitness for long days in the field, and are ready to go.
Authenticity. Art. And story is king.
What’s It Cost?
Video creation can be tailored to your needs.
Sometimes, you just need clips. Say you have someone in-house who can put together a film “story”, but they lack the video assets to work with. We can do that, and it’s a great way to build film for your website — say, a 20-second landing page video. Hiring us to create a video library is an excellent approach if your budget doesn’t allow for a full-blown, edited final product. In fact, shooting for clips is something of a specialty with us. Our clients love it, because it gives them maximum flexibility for their budget, and clips can be deployed across a number of platforms — like still images.
But we do the longer stuff, too. And because editing takes a great deal of time back at the home office, it’s not inexpensive. You can expect a 60-second video to run over $3,000.00, depending on the amount and type of assets needed for the final project.
Wherever possible, we do what it takes to save you money. We love the outdoors, and camping while working on a film is pretty much a first choice, not a fall-back. We typically do not pass our travel expenses on to you, but include them in our price quotations. We work efficiently and often spend extra personal time in the field just to make sure we’re both happy with the final deliverables.
In short, we work with you as true collaborators, and are happy to discuss day rates or project rates. (We especially love non-profit, regional tourism and outdoor destination marketing projects, and welcome discussion about limited budgets!)

Dedicated to Collaboration.
Suzanne believes there is nothing that calls for collaboration more than the film project. From deep research in the planning stage, to finding creative ways to stay within your budget while going the extra mile (or day) to get exactly what you have in mind – we do that. We see the importance of tapping into every bit of wisdom we can find. Then we use this information to tell your stories, creatively and sensitively.
We’re not exaggerating when we say that we are resolutely focused on exceeding your expectations, every time.

Filmmaking is Experience.
At its best, our films convey not just how it looks to be in a place but, more importantly, how it feels. This sometimes means slowing down, finding focus, and giving our senses time to take in the richness of a place, a personality, or a moment. Creative vision and a storytellers’ sense can transform even the most mundane scenes and experiences, and we strive for that, every day.
And in the end, that’s really what we take from our experiences in the outdoors: not what we saw, but how it made us feel.
What kind of cameras do you use?
We work on a variety of cameras, depending on the project. We’ve worked with Canon, GoPro, Sony, Nikon and DJI systems, and are comfortable in saying that we can adapt to any technical requirement or new technology. We carefully consider what system — including lenses, mounts, gimbals or rails — may be needed for the project ahead of shooting. If you need to meet technical requirements, please let us know.
Are you licensed? certified? insured?
We are licensed by the FAA for commercial drone operation, a “must have” if you are hiring for aerial photography. We maintain DBE and WBE certification in the states of New York and Oregon, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey. We’re an SBA-certified Women-Owned Small Business. And we carry insurance well above the requirements of most large infrastructure projects.
Do you work with the Federal Government?
Yes. We are SAM registered to work with the Federal Government.
Where do you work?
We are based in the Northeast, but we work anywhere in the United States and Canada. Traveling is no problem, and we work with you to keep our travel budget as low as we can go.
Do you work on an hourly rate? Day rate?
All films are different, and no two projects take the same amount of time. Some projects are short and can be shot in a day; other projects, more suited to a project rate, take longer, and may cause shifts in the estimated timeframe for completion. In this case, a project rate is the best fit.
Do you offer discounts for non-profits?
We do. We love helping non-profits get their message to the communities they serve. Contact us to discuss.
