You don’t notice how different the views from a cinematographer and a photographer are until you put them together. That’s what happened two years ago when Lone Wolf Productions teamed up with us at TNL Photography.



Some of our first shoots were with Matt. While we were still in high school we used to shoot with Matt as soon as class was out for the day, so to be doing this with him in a professional setting with both of us running our own companies is something we would have only dreamed of back then.

Being photographers and being able to have the time to notice the little things along the way plays a big part in our personal progression. We pay attention to what each other are doing, share footage, photos and learn from the experience allowing us to improve at a much faster rate. In many ways this helps that we're not a huge film company with a director of photography to tell us where to be, because we need to work together and we feel it shows in our photos and the edits.

Before we met Matt we had never shot any video at all, even on shoots together we only really handed out advice on what we thought would make a cool shot. When Matt is on the bike though he obviously can't be behind the lens and that's how we gained our first experience with video. In most photos you can frame in everything that you want and the only thing moving is going to be the rider. Totally different with video, everything moves. You need to know the start and the finish of your shots, and there is a lot more to run through than just simply pressing the button.



It has been a great experience for everyone involved, we love doing what we do and it's only just getting started. Big thanks to Matt for throwing down in this one, and allowing us to work together for as long as we have.

 It's a mountain bike video not a music video. Nobody gives a flying fudge if you like the music or not.

 your comment is arguably unfair to fudge - which is delicious I might add.

 I wonder about some of these new videos coming out and the music choice. Is this really what people who ride freeride, downhill, street, etc. listen? I highly doubt it. Enough with this electronic sounding bs "music".

 People have different tastes in music. Deal with it. Stop hating.. I'm sure not everyone likes the music you listen to.

 I expected to learn what a jammed chainsaw sounded like. You talked it up to be the worst music ever made, and it didn't live up to the hype. The video is sick as fudge.

 It's liquid D&B, which is usually good. But I have to admit, this song is awful.

 whats the script when your post is gone (still on my dashboard with 4 replies) i commented on how hard it is to make intro sections for a video - trying to defend lone wolf productions against a guy ripping into their intro/logo section and that whole thread seems to have dissappeared. i take it, its the mods not happy with the sequence of events

 Don't know why everyones hating on the music so much. Sounds to me just like every other piece of crap electronic dance music the kids are listening to these days. Not great, but not particularly objectionable either.

 Anybody noticed the Manitou INVERTED Fork? Big money, about $1700 US. Popular in the Motocross world. Maybe RockShox and Fox will come out with their own soon?
