What happens when two premier photographers join forces in an exciting new collaborative effort to direct and shoot new motion content? Magic happens.
Award-winning advertising, outdoor adventure travel, and lifestyle photographer/director Pete Barrett and lauded, prolific hotel/hospitality photographer/director Sammy Todd Dyess have partnered together to co-direct, produce and shoot exciting, cinematic storytelling motion work targeting the travel/tourism, hotel & hospitality markets.
The idea of joining forces in collaboration was born last year when long-time friends Pete Barrett and Sammy Todd Dyess were discussing different solutions to bring quality motion imagery to their prospective clients in the travel and hospitality markets. They quickly realized that they shared a commonality of vision, drive, style, and creativity that would make an amazing team when combining their efforts in a creative collaborative partnership. Together they bring years of experience to the table and are working tirelessly to produce new motion work with the same attention to detail, high production value, emotive and storytelling qualities as in their still photography.
For their debut project and the first of many projects to come, they chose to do a soothing and serene spa piece with an international feel featuring a young woman in a tropical garden experiencing a Vietnamese Saging ritual which you can see here by clicking the link on the video above. (turn on sound to get your zen on.)
So far response to the work has been great, leading to many inquiries, and a few assignments are already on the calendar. If you have upcoming motion projects in the works please give us a call. We would love the opportunity to discuss how we could work together to make something amazing for you and your clients.
