3M™ PELTOR™ ComTac™ VI Tactical Communications and Hearing Protection | Warfighter Saftey
It is great to see a few new releases from our 3M PELTOR ComTac VI NIB Headset project make it to light. I’m always excited to see the final outcome of all the hard work that went into the shoot. 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.
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.

DAS BOAT, SERIES
Introducing MeatEater’s First Original Fishing Series
We couldn’t be more thrilled to be apart of theOff 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!

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!
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 channeland 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.
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!

I’m thrilled to see my work from this trip make it to print in Gray’s Sporting Journal. Each time I think about this incredible adventure with this crew, it still seems surreal. What an amazing area — I had no idea places like this actually existed in reality. This was a journey I will always remember, and Dubai is a place I hope to return to.to return to.
