|Corey - Visual Storyteller|
|Almost two decades ago, I planted both feet firmly in the world of falling snow, moving water and massive stone. As extreme sports entered the American mainstream, I was there to tell the stories of athletes like climbing legend Chris Sharma, kayaking pioneer Eric Jackson and world champion surfer Lisa Anderson. Editors at National Geographic Adventure, The New York Times Magazine and Sports Illustrated regularly turned to me to bring them startling, memorable images from the world’s wild edges. I've waded across crocodile-infested rivers in Papua New Guinea, lost cameras to Saharan Desert sand storms and suffered through blizzards in the Andes in an ongoing odyssey of unforgettable stories, dawn light, and timeless images.|
As my career evolved, I quickly discovered that the lessons learned in the tumultuous realm of shifting light, rapid movement and capturing authentic moments also applied to meticulously orchestrated still and motion shoots for the commercial and advertising world. When Anheuser-Busch, Nike, The North Face or Apple need a passionate visual storyteller to help shape a multi-million dollar print campaign or capture compelling video for a TV commercial, they count on my team to not only produce a multi-day shoot, complete with talent, locations, wardrobe and hair & makeup, but most importantly, to create striking visuals that embody the core of any given brand campaign.
For all passionate people, the lines between work and play are hazy. When not on assignment, I'm at home in Lake Tahoe where chasing adventure is as simple as opening the back door to three-feet of newly fallen snow, miles of pristine trails, towering granite walls and countless stories yet to be told.
