A story of lemonade stands, chocolate bribes, gravel bikes and skids. Say, hypothetically of course, that you paid off a kid to move their lemonade stand and closed off a switchbacked piece of gravel mountain road heaven to have all to yourself. You also happened to have the best gravel bike equipment at your disposal, a film crew in tow, and an unquenchable thirst to go fast and loose down hills. What then?

Produced for Holden & Hay’s Kickstarter project – a weighted blanket using sustainably sourced raw materials and filled with recycled denim (instead of plastic beads), made in Colorado. Delivery in time for the holidays, check it out here.
This video we produced for Boulder, CO based SmartEtailing helps succinctly explain what services they offer to independent bike dealers and how they can help them compete with the e-commerce platforms of larger, chain retailers.
We produced a thirty second broadcast spot for Walter and Hogsett Fine Jewelers here in Boulder, Colorado. It features Art and Sami sharing their real engagement story. Interview scenes were filmed on location at Walters and Hogsett with B roll filmed on Pearl Street Mall. Allen Krughoff handled this project from end to end including producing, directing, filming and editing. Heather Fischer assisted. The video production of this spot would not have been possible without the openness of Art and Sami as well as the help of the Walters and Hogsett staff after hours for our interview.
Pearl Izumi hired us to produce a series of short web videos that would highlight technical features of their cycling apparel and mountain bike shoes. We put together lit interviews at their headquarters in Louisville, CO and filmed product detail scenes in the same day. Additionally, we captured mountain bike and road bike footage for B roll to show these products in action.
For the chamois video, Pearl Izumi supplied some of the road cycling B roll used.
Interview and action scenes filmed for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Role: Director of Photography
From LLS and Lottie Bildirici:
Join me in celebrating 10 years as a cancer survivor as I take on IRONMAN® Louisville on October 14, 2018 in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
On a daily basis, I’m asked why I started running or why I started runonveg.com? To this point, my answer has been “I just started running and started a blog about the importance of eating well as an athlete.” There is much more to it than that – and almost 10 years later, it is finally time to share my story.
Produced for SmartEtailing to announce new features of their service offerings for bike shops – specifically responsive websites that function and look great whether on a traditional browser or mobile device. We shot this in one day and turned around the edit and client revisions within one week.
We produced this cycling commercial for Cateye Co. based in Japan. To demonstrate their daytime cycling lights we used both a road cyclist and a bike commuter and filmed them in real-world use scenarios, from canyon roads to city streets, and everywhere in between. Big thanks to everyone who helped out on this project and to Cateye Japan for trusting us with the entire production here in Colorado.
Most scenes were shot on the Sony FS7 with a couple aerials on the Inspire 2 drone and a canyon scene captured by 2nd camera, Thomas Woodson, on the Sony A7SII. Editing, color and visual effects by Pinto Pictures in Colorado and post production sound design was handled by Keith White Audio in Vancouver, BC.
Being based in Boulder, Colorado often means I shoot a lot of outdoor work. From riding and running, to simply enjoying what Colorado has to offer, brands that are based here want active imagery on location. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t get to work on advertising and catalog shoots in completely different realms such as this one with Susan Lanci Designs in San Diego.
For the overhaul of the Susan Lanci Designs look, a luxury pet fashion brand, I shot ten different fashion setups in a high end home in San Diego this spring. From couples in cocktail attire, to family picnic scenes, to a shirtless male model with a dachshund over his shoulders – we created a wide range of images for this client in just one [well orchestrated] day with the help of LeeMarc staff.
Martin Homes, based in Greeley, Colorado, hired me to photograph a recently finished new home that had just been moved into. The homeowner did an incredible job of furnishing the house and it was a pleasure to shoot. Made me a bit jealous of their place!
I was hired to shoot some product photography for Enduro Bites, manufacturer of energy food products and supplements. They make some delicious solid food products as well as a beet powder that tastes as good as it looks. Being able to accommodate both on-location lifestyle and action photography as well as studio product images is something I like to provide so my clients have a one stop shop for everything they need.
I’ve shot often with Kara Goucher over these past couple of years and it’s always fun and relaxed. Kara is someone who’s gone through the gauntlet of press and media as an olympic athlete and grown into a renowned brand ambassador as a professional athlete, wife and mother. The privilege of shooting with her and her family over the years has afforded me the ability to make everyone comfortable with my presence on set – whether it’s on location with hair and makeup or in their home. Addaday hired me to produce still images of Kara to compliment their short film that was being shot in Boulder. A few of the selects are shown here.
While Timothy Olson was in town filming a short video, Addaday hired me to join the project to produce a small library of product photography and lifestyle images. I worked with Tim over one afternoon in a handful of locations in Boulder, Colorado incorporating Addaday muscle rollers.
I worked with RockyMounts to shoot a campaign of images featuring their new security line of bike locks. Boulder isn’t the most urban or gritty city around but we wanted to showcase the safety and strength of their locks – specifically The Compton model. The Compton is a super, super tough lock based off a super duty padlock designed to keep scooters locked up or in this case, your bike in a tough area.
We captured lifestyle photography consisting of scenes based on a college campus, a modern upscale downtown area, a public transit scenario and a tougher, grittier alley to echo the personality of each of the bike locks.
Reigniting the passion for what you do, through adventure on the bike.
Filmed over the journey on bike from Leadville, Colorado to Aspen, Colorado among a dozen friends, for the Aspen Food and Wine Festival. This short film features retired professional cyclist, Lucas Euser, alongside celebrity chefs, Biju Thomas and Chris Cosentino.
I handled lead camera operation with Molly Arenberg as second camera. Initial edit by myself and final edits by Troy Ten Eyck.
