Here's a small sample of recent work.
Eagle Creek has been working with us for longer than just about any brand, and we think that's because we believe in the product. We are the type of people who use this gear, who drag bags through rocks, dirt, mud, rain, and snow. We know what we want in a bag, so we know how to show what makes it great.
prAna has been one of our favorite brands to work with because their interest is equally vested in making products that are sustainable and last a long time so as to minimize the consumer culture that comes with the shortened shelf lives of inferior products. We wear prAna on our adventures because it works. Telling that story is easy.
We sent creatives to ground zero of the rhino poaching crisis in an effort to document Africa's most successful counter poaching unit. Our men were issued two uniforms, a tuperware full of canned food, and sent to shadow the rangers in the bush for two weeks. As you can imagine, this no frills mission personifies our team's ability to show up in harsh conditions and deliver a compelling narrative. Uncertain of the outcome, Access set out with the intention of using the assets to help solidify a partnership that could ensure political will so that counter poaching unit could scale their operations across the continent.
We are proud to say that our efforts, as a company, generated $600,000+ in donations and set the precedent for what's to come.
This could very well be the largest animal conservation initative in our lifetime - stay tuned!
We approached Utah because that's where we already went on a lot of our own adventures. Moab, Zion, and Salt Lake all have been the scene of many of our personal trips. The images and stories we've gathered from Utah have been some of our favorites because of the incredibly diverse landscape and novel formations that Utah is known for.
We like to work with products that provide an experience, not just status. We help sell those products by showing the real, amazing experiences that you can have with that product. For Isle Surf, we took the boards to the northern tip of Washington to capture images that show people pushing out beyond the normal paddleboarding experience.
We've partnered with Toyota on a number of campaigns, some specific to Toyota, and others a collaboration between non competitive brands that want to co-market with eachother in what we call "ACCESS Campaigns". We've included them in advertisements for Visit California, Mexico, and in short stories built around the idea that without a Toyota, there are experiences you just won't have.
