I'm a video producer and shooter by profession for commercials and brands, but what I am trying to do is build a portfolio of outdoor work. I would love to come and shoot you and your friends climbing. Whether bouldering or sport/trad, doesn't matter as long as its outside and is compelling enough to warrant me busting out my gear; i.e. Not a bunch of goofballs messing around on a pebble in the backyard. Should be legit climbing on solid problems or routes worth shooting or it won't be worth watching. No charge or anything, just trying to build out that part of my portfolio.
Hit me up if you would like me to come out with your people and record your amazing footwork. My main goal is great video, but I can shoot supplemental stills as well so you can hang your kick-ass dyno on your bedroom wall.

That's a nice offer. There's plenty of great, photogenic climbing spots around. What did you have in mind? What I mean is, where would you ideally like to shoot?

I don't really have an area in mind. My reel is devoid of climbing videos accept for a few I did of myself. I'm new to Atlanta (1 year) and fairly new to climbing (18 months), but am hooked. I've worked as a shooter on commercial stuff for so long and now I'm looking to go more outdoor-centric with my work; but have to build a reel first.
So...I'm up for anything that's within my comfort zone (ie. not ready for multi-pitch routes just yet). I'd say easy to moderate climbs would be ideal, but as a shooter who's lowering or jugging on fixed ropes, that opens things up a bit.
If you have a place in mind that might be photogenic and worth my (our) time, let's talk.

I'm sure you already know about this but just in case. Next Saturday is Float the Boat Comp/Fundraiser. It's at Boat Rock outside of Atlanta and it's a great opportunity to get a lot of people climbing. You can check the SCC website and/or facebook and you can see all the details/message them for more info. It's always a great time out!

Good luck!

Have you given any thought to getting some shots in Obed? The Stephen King library may have some great shots for you. Let me know if you ever head up to TN.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
