Tim Kemple is a fellow Salt Lake City dweller and an amazing photographer and director. He’s worked with some of the most amazing brands in the outdoor adventure arena and I’ve watched his career over the past couple of years. He founded Camp4Collective and works alongside the who’s who of adventure media producers.
I purchased a class from Tim surrounding product photography and wasn’t disappointed. Although the videos were a little scattered at times and could use a little extra polishing, each provided some great insight into how Tim works. I enjoyed his process of directing an athlete and utilizing a location. Again, lots of good information throughout, but the most important item I’m taking with me is “intensity.” When directing the athlete he tells her to run with intensity because it will show through in the image. This can be hard for athletes/models when they’re repeating an action time and again. I was surprised at the difference that one bit of direction produced in the photographs. Body language and posture read as far more authentic and far less scripted.
I’m taking it with me!
