Joining forces with ADM & DKY for a still & motion library shoot had our team craving a sweet treat - and that’s something we'll never turn down.Read More
Last summer we traveled to Wimbledon, North Dakota for a shoot with FMC. Over two days we shot still and motion side by side from sunrise to sunset creating a diverse image library. Due to the fires at the time in Montana we had unbelievable light throughout the day. The warm sunrises and sunsets lasted hours thanks to the smoky haze making the shots unique with the quality of light.
We recently traveled to Ohio and Michigan making videos to help farmers understand what Farming Checkoffs are. We interviewed two farmers about their experiences and the benefits they have gained from their checkoff dollars.

Recently we worked with Philips Distilling on a handful of shoots to create images for social, web and print. The first shoot was to create images focused around a handful of recipes. We shot on location at the beautiful Cafe Lurcat which gave us options for different looks given their large and unique space.
The second shoot was on location at the Olson Family Farm, which is one of the local Minnesota Organic farms which Prairie Organic gets their corn from to make Vodka and Gin. Working freely on the farm we were able to make images with and without product to be used on social as well as print collateral.

This past December as the snow lay on the ground here in Minnesota, we traveled out to the Imperial Valley area of California for a shoot with Pioneer DuPont. The warmth was a welcome change as we spent two days in the Alfalfa fields capturing a variety of images. Normally with Ag shoots the middle of the day isn't ideal for shooting since the sun is directly over head. Fortunately for us, shooting in December the sun was much lower in the sky, allowing us to keep going all day out in the field.
This shoot was also the first we shot entirely on the new Canon 5dmkiv and we couldn't be more happy with the outcome. The camera's dynamic range is leaps and bounds better than the older 5dmkiii. It allowed us to keep details in the highlights as well as pull details from the shadows unlike we had been able to before. We also shot a fair amount tethered to the new 15in Mac Book Pro which was easily able to keep up with the camera even when shooting bursts. When not tethered, we were able to send preview images from the camera directly to an iPad so the client could keep watching the shots as we went along.
