I’ve been contacted lately by a few potential clients about advertising photography for outdoor gear companies. A friend of mine owns a retail outdoors store, and had mentioned my name to a few people. As is often the case, and rightfully so, the people wanted to see some specific outdoor images which I currently don’t have in my portfolio or recently on my blog. I offered to provide a quick test shoot using a favorite location of mine. I didn’t have much time. But with the help of a good friend of mine I was able to capture a couple quick images to send off to the interested parties.
Now these images were created during a small window of time for the both of us with me schlepping some basic lighting equipment over the trail. The purpose is to provide some quick examples to the interested parties given their timeframe, and hopefully, within the context of the rest of my portfolio, we will begin some projects together.
Of course, being located in the Pacific Northwest with such outdoor companies as Danner Boots, Columbia Sportswear, and so many others, this was an element of my portfolio sorely lacking. It is something I have already scheduled some photo shoots to rectify.
