As I look back on 2023, I’m glad I paused and really took the time to understand the opportunity of being both behind and in front of the camera.
It’s like holding the key to humanizing a brand.
As a director or producer or photographer, you craft the narrative; as a strategist you help them scale; as a model, you become the living embodiment of the very audience a company seeks to connect with.
I’ll never take my work for granted. No matter what role I play for a brand, it’s always an absolute privilege.
Photos are from campaigns with Stetson, Huckberry, and Foreign Rider. Shot by @taylorhoover , @a_souza_photo , and @tyler_ravelle (last two).
Here it is. Solitude Of Fr.eedom
A film with @foreignriderco about solitude, charting new paths, and taking a moment to see a world open with opportunities.
As Rick Ruben says, “Listening, then, is not just awareness. It’s freedom from accepted limitations.”
As I step into a season of pushing through past limitations, a season of building again, I cannot tell you how healing it was to ride for a few days in the PNW - with nothing to do but reflect on the wisdom of those who’ve carried me this far. To the friends, family, mentors, and teachers - cheers 🍻.
@foreignriderco embraces the freedom found in exploring our creative, physical and mental limits.
Thank you for having me @ralphfr.co . Film was perfectly produced by @vahna and captured by the brilliant @rjbruni
All I wanted for Christmas was to be on the front cover of a magazine and well, Santa came early!
So grateful for that weekend this Fall with @vahna.moto and @foreignriderco . It’s proven to have been such a pivotal few days during this season. @bengiese thanks for including me and being the kindest friend! ✨
@tyler_ravelle you nailed it brother. Congrats on the shot and cover. 😮💨
@ralphfr.co thank you for creating the space for this crew to make some magic. You’re changing the game man. 🤘🏽
