Set Photos

behind the scenes + making of - set photos

We love behind the scenes photos. While the images that go in front of the camera are the most important, what goes on behind on set is arguably just as important – and sometimes equally as dramatic. Documenting our sets, actors, props, costumes, and cameras is never easy in such a chaotic environment and it takes true skill to capture creativity in action.

We’ll never forget one set photographer who literally strapped himself on to the hood of an Audi to keep pace with one of our camera cars in order to capture the perfect shot of both it and the picture car together. Their dedication to documentation is second to none. As they say, pictures say a thousand words and when you’re on a movie set, the right picture is easily ten thousand times that. Indeed, with some of the best set photographers in the industry gracing us with their lenses, we couldn’t be prouder to showcase their hard work and creativity.

Faces of Laikipia

Faces of Laikipia - Travel Photography Project

We grew up watching Richard Attenborough and the BBC and it was nothing short of surreal to see elephants, rhinos, giraffes, zebras and warthogs up close in the beautiful countryside of Laikipia, Kenya. The fact that we were commissioned by the local administration and Non Government Organizations (NGOs) such as the Laikipia Wildlife Forum was more icing on our proverbial (very tasty) cake. 

One of our most bittersweet moments was getting a chance to meet the last 3 ever Northern White Rhinos at Ol Pajeta Sanctuary. These majestic animals were literally the last of their kind and being unable to reproduce – walking remnants of an extinct species. We were one of the last film and photography crews allowed in to document them before one of them tragically passed away. 

Spending a week out in the dirt and living life as a sort-of-local led to some incredible photographic opportunities. Not only of the incredible wildlife, but also of the locals who made up this true gem of a state that much more beautiful.

Travel Photography & Portraits

Our filmmaking journey has taken us around the world – to more than 110 countries and every inhabited continent. Each city, country, and continent we’ve ever been to has been unique and special in their own way, but they also all share a lot of similarities. We’ve found that no matter who they are or where they live, humans around the world all care about the same things: family, friends, and food.

Our travel photography try to paint a picture of a world that’s diverse and different, but also one that shares a few common threads that make us all ultimately human and we’ll be there to capture them – one photo at a time.
