Photoshoots are bonding experiences like none-other. It is crazy how close you feel to the people you're creating with after only a few days on set. Time compresses in an impressive way - days feel like weeks (in the best way possible) - crew, clients, subjects all become family.

This mountain bike film with @thorindustries was no exception.

We included a few other behind the scenes stills from various other shoots.

We’ve worked with a number of organizations with the intention of bringing skiing or cycling to various underserved communities. The collaboration between Vida and Black Girls do bike has been one of the most effective we’ve seen. From one year to the next we’ve seen a huge increase in participation with returning participants bringing their friends. 

So cool to see the efforts making a difference.

Brooke Goudy is one of our favorite humans and telling her story was a privilege (and a damn good time). Brooke is an athlete and bicycle advocate. She has a love for cycling, but her greatest joy is introducing cycling to women of color as a co-leader of Black Girls Do Bike Denver. As the community events manager for VIDA MTB Series, she co-leads an Impact committee that works to eliminate barriers to make mountain biking more inclusive, equitable, and diverse.

Her love for biking extends to conservation and advocacy for trails. She recently became a member of the board of directors for Boulder Mountainbike Alliance and co-leads the Women's Colorado Mountain Bike Association Program as their program marketing manager.

Brooke serves on the Denver Mayor Advisory board, and is a member of the Denver Parks and Recreation Technical Advisory Committee. Having a seat at these tables allows her to identify the communities’ needs, and prioritize opportunities to support equity, inclusion, and diversity in outdoor adventure sports. ⁠

Last summer, she rode the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route and developed a love for bikepacking. She is looking forward to competing in the Westfjords Way Challenge, 960 kilometers/ 595 miles around Iceland's most beautiful and remote landscape. She is an ambassador for @jojébar, @saltstick, @YetiCycles, @PearlIzumiOfficial, @deuter_usa , @chamoisbuttr, @wildernesstrailbikes, @topeak and @strava

Pedaling with Purpose: How We Build Community Through Mountain Biking

Good partners are everything. It's hard to understate how fortunate we feel to be working with @thorindustries. They have encouraged and enabled us to tell stories we're proud of that we believe make the world a better place.

We’ll start with this piece about Britt and Brooke and their journey to share the joy of cycling with more people - specifically women of color.

We didn't know what to expect from our first trip to West Virginia, especially to the tiny town of Fayetteville. Nearly everything about this production was surprising and special. We got to meet our hero Lynn Hill (@_linacolina_) who was humble, kind, and wise. We experienced the New River Gorge and Fayetteville which turned out to be a hidden gem of a place. And most importantly, we got to watch Kathy leave it all on the line in her attempts on The Greatest Show.

Kathy is a true badass. She carries herself with humility and lighthearted humor that makes her easy to be around. When she switches into send mode she shows a fierce determination and focus that was an inspiration to watch.

Process matters. We truly care that the final product we put into the world is the best thing we can create, and we know that we achieve this by focusing on the process.

These stories are not just another box to check off; they belong to the people who are kind enough to let us into their lives (in this case, Ella and Annabel). We want to honor them with something they're proud of, and we accomplish that by getting to know them in their element.

Here are a few glimpses from behind the scenes showing a bit of that process.

One of the many things we love about working with THOR Industries is finding and developing exciting stories. More often than not, we find ourselves in new places with amazing people we would not otherwise have had the chance to enjoy.

The Skrocki family were terrific hosts and showed us the joys of living on “the third coast.” We explored Sleeping Bear Dune. We kayaked, paddle-boarded, camped, and captured some beautiful footage. Huge thanks to the kind people of Sleeping Bear Dune National Lakeshore, the whole crew at Sleeping Bear Surf & Kayak, Beth Price, and everyone we met along the way.

Kalen's was the first of 5 projects we worked on with @thorindustries over the past year. Each project highlighted amazing humans who happen to be women. We didn't set out for 2021 to be a year of capturing almost exclusively women doing cool sh*t, these are just the people whose energy drew us to their stories.⁠

It was such a pleasure spending four days in the desert with Kalen and her pups. Kalen is a bright, hard-working, down-to-earth person who brings good energy and humor to any situation. A bonus of the shoot was the complete lack of cell service. During a contentious, divisive, stressful election (we were there shooting on November 4th), we were able to disconnect, enjoy each other's company as well as the power of the Utah Desert.⁠

Britt Greer is dedicated to getting more women on bikes. As the Founder & Director of the COMBA Women’s Program (Colorado Mountain Bike Association), she has developed a series of events aimed to support, grow and empower the Colorado lady shred community. Since 2015, she’s been a lead coach with VIDA MTB Series, Grit Clinics and other organizations, helping women confidently push past their comfort zones. When she's not hosting events or coaching, Britt races pro in local enduro circuits, mostly to force herself out of her own comfort zone.

Having lived in both Spain and Argentina for year-long stints, Britt has a deep rooted passion for travel. For her, there is nothing more soul-fulfilling than exploring the world via unsullied trails and experiencing disparate and meaningful human connections along the way.⁠

03/22/2022

Each of these stories are months in the making before we even pick up a camera. Even when we’ve found a general story we think deserves telling - we need to get into the details before the actual shape of the story begins to reveal itself. We do pre-interviews with the subjects, looking for threads we can pull on. Then comes the crazy amount of logistical planning to make it all happen.

When we finally get on-set it’s almost a magical world unto itself. The crew works their asses off - long days and creative/logistical challenges together are a strong bonding experience. In the midst of trying to make a difficult thing happen, we’re delving into the details of other people’s lives, often who are experiencing this all for the first time themselves. It’s quite the human experience.

After the shooting is over, the post process begins and our post team delves into the arduous process of reveling the story from the heaping pile of bits.

In the end, when it all comes together, we end up with something beautiful that we can all be proud of. This is one such case. HUGE thanks to everyone involved:

Arizona shoot is a wrap. Serious team effort to get creative, plan and execute this one but it sure paid off.

At the same time this was happening, two more teams were crushing additional, overlapping studio and location shoots. Big week.
Huge thanks to our crew who are always willing to lean in and then lean in more to make these things happen. Huge thanks to our clients who make all of this possible by sharing their dreams and trusting us to capture them. #arizona

Thank you to The Colorado Sun for highlighting our 4th Annual Silverton Shred event! This year, over 130 participants joined us to take over Silverton Mountain for an epic few days celebrating the healing power of adventure, community, and all things First Descents ultimately raising $140,000 for our life-changing programs! Check out the full article on FD Alumni Jesseca "Dahl" Collins, Conor "Prez" Hall, and Michelle "Leadfoot" Friedmann who joined us to shred the slopes and share their personal stories with cancer, finding connection through First Descents, and tapping into the #OutLivingIt mantra. . A big thank you to BWBacon and The Public Works for their vision and support in making this one-in-a-lifetime event happen, and another round of shoutouts to all of our incredible event sponsors and partners in adventure including TREW, Icelantic Skis, Wyman Hotel, Cabin Creek Brewing, Avalanche Brewing Co., Liquid Death Mountain Water, Rocky Mountain Cannabis Company, and many more!

On May 13th, horse thieves came in the night and stole our whole woodworking business and most of my livelihood: our truck, cargo trailer, and tools. I was moving it all into a new shop the next day and parked on seemingly quiet street for one night. Eventually, we found the truck and trailer, but the tools were gone. A bummer, for sure, and one of those forced turning points in life where whether you like it or not, your life has changed. Self-pity, self-loathing, and general enmity held for some days as I tried to figure what the hell I would do. But, as the world often does, it blocks one road and builds another. Fully wallowed, I eventually did some digging, and for me, the new road was a really interesting opportunity working with some awesome people at a very unique outdoor sports media, marketing, and fabrication company in downtown Denver called The Public Works. It’s a fascinating company with talented people based out of their own eclectic co-working building in Denver’s Sante Fe Art District, Battery621. Check them out. They (we) do some really cool stuff. And so, this weird comedy of life goes. Here’s to new chapters. And huge thanks to Frank and Mike and the rest of the gang for welcoming us like family. And yes, I'm still writing novels. Next to release this fall/winter. Details soon.
In September of last year we had the incredible opportunity to jump aboard the Sonic X with Beth Price Photography Thor Industries, Inc. Venture RV and The Public Works for an epic backyard adventure. This last year gave us the opportunity to slow down and dive into the details of Northern Michigan, which has thoroughly enhanced our appreciation for the place we call home. We’ll let the film do the rest of the talking.
We wrapped up an epic few days of skiing at our Silverton Shred event last week! Nearly 90 people joined us as we hit the slopes for some socially distanced fun and raised over $75,000 for First Descents! Thanks to Silverton Mountain for the amazing adventures and to The Public Works for the incredible photos. A few more special shoutouts to our friends at Avalanche Brew Co. and Liquid Death Mountain Water for the delicious food and H20, and the Grand Imperial Hotel, Wyman Hotel and The Avon for safely housing our guests during this time! We can't wait to get back soon for more #OutLivingIt adventures!
