The Adobe Company approached me recently to help shoot a commercial/film highlighting all that the State of Utah has to offer as a place to work, live and play. My first thought was along the lines of, "We're going to need feature film length time to showcase this amazing State and we still won't get to northern Utah (think Moab, Arches, Lake Powell, Zion, Bryce...phew)." Of course, I was ecstatic with the opportunity not only because I love where I live and work, but also because of the creative freedom I had on this project and the chance to shoot more motion and video; something I've been pushing into much more intensely this past year. As a photographer and film maker, I have images in my mind that I look forward to shooting when the time is right, and this was one of those times.
Props also go to CMG for their work shooting part of the piece (a joint effort) including some of the interviews and other landscape footage. And a huge thanks to BenC, the man with vision and for tying it all together!
