3M SCOTT FIRST RESPONDER CATALOG 2019
Scott Fire & Saftey

I’m always excited to see the final outcome of all the hard work that went into the shoot. We were hired as the principal photographer for the new 3M Scott First Responder marketing advertisement campaign. It was fun to be on the same famous Holywood set where projects including Iron Man 2, American Sniper and many others were filmed.

Big thanks to Paul Bourcq at Drift Media Productions, the Follow North/Northern Creative Consulting Agency, and the entire talent and crew for a successful collaborative effort. We couldn’t do any of this without you.

Not all heroes wear capes.

DAS BOAT – NEW SERIES FROM THE MEATEATER FISHING DEPT.

DAS BOAT, SERIES
Introducing MeatEater’s First Original Fishing Series



We couldn’t be more thrilled to be apart of the Off The Grid Studios team that produced the new fishing series for MeatEater, Inc. It was a few months of long field days, brutal heat, insane humidity, overheating batteries, a few police officers (love you guys), angry non-Florida country club locals, biting bugs, sleepless nights, boiled peanuts, great memories, wonderful people, breathtaking views, wild nature, and interesting characters.

This project was nothing short of an incredible adventure with a remarkable crew. There were so many people that helped make this series run smoothly, you all know who you are. Thank you!

One boat, five fisheries, ten anglers, 2500 miles…unlimited bad ideas. In this new series, Das Boat, MeatEater revives an old aluminum boat from a backyard in Texas and explores angling opportunities with some of our favorite folks. The first episode of Das Boat aired on August 15th on YouTube and Facebook. New episodes come out every Thursday. Yes, it’s FREE!

This photograph is from a great morning on the Texas coast with Corby Robertson and Mike Trotter who were fly fishing for redfish. A little teamwork goes a long way.

QUEENFISH DUBAI | THIS IS FLY MAGAZINE

QUEENFISH DUBAI
This is Fly :: Issue No 67 

The new issue of This Is Fly dropped, and it’s great to see a feature on Dubai on the Fly make the cover. Frank Smethurst and I had the opportunity to sit down and talk about the experience of fly fishing in Dubai, and this interview is included in the issue along with many photos from Dubai.

Big thanks to RA Beattie for capturing this photo of me with a mighty queen on the cover. It’s certainly a big surprise! It’s always odd seeing myself in photos, and I’m much more comfortable on the other side of the lens. And yes, the Off the Grid Studios team kept this from me as they know I would have protested! Ha — Thanks, team!

DUBAI ON THE FLY | FULL-LENGTH FEATURE NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON

DUBAI ON THE FLY
Off the Grid Studios

Off the Grid Studios is pleased to announce the release of the full-length cut of their film “Dubai on the Fly.” Available now on Amazon channel and Vimeo, “Dubai on the Fly” is the culmination of two trips to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates by the Off the Grid Studios team. In “Dubai on the Fly,” Colorado angler Frank Smethurst joins Dubai-based Captain Nick Bowles and Emirati angler Mohammed Al Faour on a journey through the vibrant city of Dubai. Within the modern metropolis, the anglers encounter culture and tradition alongside skyscrapers and thriving industry. And while all enjoy exploring the city and the surrounding desert, the waters of Dubai are the main attraction, and queenfish are the specie of interest.

“Dubai on the Fly” was an official selection of the 2018 Fly Fishing Film Tour and appeared in more than 170 cities, all while drawing widespread acclaim. “Dubai on the Fly” received attention from numerous popular blogs as well as magazines Conde Nast Traveler, Fly Fisherman Magazine, Gray’s Sporting Journal, The Stonefly Magazine, The Mission Magazine and most recently with a cover shot and 14-page spread in This is Fly Magazine!

Looking back over the past +1 year of production, one of Napoleon’s quotes rings true for this project, “Patience, persistence, and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” This project was a tremendous amount of work but was equally gratifying. It would not be possible without the teamwork from such an outstanding group of dedicated people. Thank you all for lending your dedication, creativity, and passion. Here’s to the next round!

DUBAI ON THE FLY | OTG TEAM RELEASES NEW TRAILER

FLY FISHING FILM TOUR
Off the Grid Studios: Filmed on location in Dubai

I am pleased to announce the trailer for the 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour film, Dubai on the Fly has just dropped. This is a film created by our collective group, Off The Grid Studios. It was great to spend time working with such an inspiring story with an incredible group of individuals.

DUBAI ON THE FLY || FILM
The tallest skyscrapers, the fastest cars, the fanciest restaurants and the most exclusive resorts and clubs. When westerners think of Dubai, fishing is about the last thing we imagine, if we think of it at all. But at the heart of this fast, modern city lies a shockingly intact traditional fishing culture alongside a budding fly angling industry. Acting as the Anthony Bourdain of this culture-and-recreation oriented film is Colorado-based angler and film veteran Frank Smethurst. Joining with Captain Nick Bowles and Emirati angler Mohammed Al Faour, Frank unveils familiar and unexpected sides of this iconic city, in the desert and on the water.

This new media project, over two years in the making, will premier in the 2018 Fly Fishing Film Tour and travel the globe to festivals worldwide. The film will hit more than 140 cities in the United States alone.
