About Me

My goal with Big Cedar Media is to showcase the human condition through stories that inspire and motivate. In 2016, I stepped away from fulltime river guiding on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River and dove headfirst into producing promotional videos and documentary short films. My mission is to encourage viewers through positive stories that can offer hope.

In November 2015, I moved from Montana where I was born and raised, to Boise with intent to grow my business and establish a homebase. I can be found adventuring around the mountains and rivers with a camera in my hand and a smile on my face.

About My Gear 

I shoot with a Sony A7S II camera and canon glass. I also use a Canon 7D and 5D Mark II. My primary lenses consist of an EF 70-200mm, EF 50mm, EF 17-40, and an EF 24-105mm. I am able to achieve smooth cinematic movement shots with a Freefly Movi M5 handheld gimbal stabilizer. To ensure that I get the shot, I have a Hero 3 GoPro and an Equinox underwater housing for my 5D Mark II, just in case I need to go in the water.

I record sound onto a Tascam DR-60D with Sennheiser G3 Wireless Microphone and a Rode VideoMic Pro Shotgun Microphone.
