WHAT WE DO
WHO WE ARE
Earlier this year, we had the chance to fly around the gorgeous and incredibly diverse landscape of Southeast Asia. The rain in Northern Vietnam landed us in Laos early (an unexpected, but welcomed turn of events. The locals were so kind and inviting, and the rural countryside was like nothing we had ever seen!
Kop jai la lai!
Thomas and I are so excited to announce we're coordinating a 2-day free portrait event called "Project Heirloom"* for Sevier County residents who lost treasured photo collections in the wildfires. This event would not be possible without the help of Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, who is an irreplaceable treasure to Gatlinburg itself and our host for the portrait sessions!
Tho goal of Project Heirloom is to encourage families by offering them the free gift of a framed and matted 8"x10" portrait. We could never replace the photos that have been lost, but what we can do is offer a new keepsake to those who are beginning the year with an incredibly difficult set of circumstances. Growing up in Sevier County, I was always encouraged to follow creative pursuits to the best of my ability. For all the love and support the community has always shown me, I feel that this gift is inadequate to say the least. Being born and raised in the Great Smoky Mountains has shaped me in ways that I could never take credit for or properly repay.
If you or someone you know has lost their home, first, we are so deeply sorry for your loss. We can't imagine the grief and pain you're going through. We would love the chance to offer you this gift. You can visit: www.projectheirloomtn.com to schedule a portrait session or you can call me directly at 865-412-0022.
Thanks so much,
*The project's namesake comes from a similar effort that was made by photographers in California in 2007 to help San Diego families after wildfires destroyed thousands of homes in Southern California. Read more about that here.
When you walk around a monastery that's been around since the 1890s, you can't help but feel like a real-life Marty McFly. 300 year old hand-painted choir books with sheep skin pages are in the library. Hand-carved furniture made by the German immigrants who founded the abbey sit in the corners of the parlor. When the numerous bells and clocks start ringing all at once and monks start coming from every direction to file into their choir stalls for prayer, you kind of expect to turn a corner and DeLorean your way back to the 21st century.
You really feel transported to a place where life outside is on pause.
Getting to spend some time observing their quiet lives of prayer and work was fascinating––we’re so stoked to release our latest work featuring the Benedictine monks of St. Bernard Abbey!
Here's a short promotional trailer along with the full version:
It would be safe to assume that because Thomas and I are 20 somethings who run a production company, keeping our social media pages updated ain't no thang because we're just naturally good at engaging the digital world, but that's really not the case at all!
After I spend hours sorting through interviews, the last thing I want to do when I finish working is stare at a screen again. for fun. Sometimes after work, we blast Dolly Parton and dance as hard as we can until we collapse just to exhaust all of our stored energy.
However, we also really want to get better at connecting and although keeping a blog won't help my screen-induced eye twitch, it will *hopefully* give us a proper place to keep others updated on our work, while making it abundantly clear that:
Self-employment is not always a sweeping aerial shot of zebras galloping in the Serengeti.
Most days it's a wide exterior of the front lawn from the window behind my computer.
Unless Nashville gets a freak snow storm, then we run across the street for an obligatory photo sesh.
So here's to the first of entry in the Electric Peak digi-diary!

We were so excited to test out our DJI Inspire 1 in some of Tanzania's most beautiful parks. Here's a short montage featuring Lake Manyara, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. Recently our footage was featured on Good Morning America!
