Henry Jackson

Areas of focusSocial Media; Photography; Videography

To say I have an obsession with cameras and the natural world around us would be an understatement. I’m a freelance filmmaker and photographer based out of the Pacific Northwest in Portland, Oregon. Although, I travel wherever the story and my camera takes me so I’m often just along for the journey. I moved to the Pacific Northwest with literally nothing other than the thought of knowing that I had plenty of diverse natural ecosystems to explore. Nature completely changed my life in numerous ways and for that I have dedicated my craft to it and to the amazing people that advocate for and interact with it in many different ways. I specialize in content ranging from branded content, advertisements, or documentary projects. I can help create a project from start to finish or I could be a valuable team member as a camera operator/cinematographer on a project.

Elizabeth Sampey

Areas of focusJournalism; Copywriting & Content; Social Media

Hey! I’m Elizabeth. I’ve been a freelance endurance athlete working with brands in the outdoor and bicycle industries for 10 years. I also have a doctoral degree in physical therapy with 11 years of experience in educational, motivational and scientific writing. I am passionate about helping people optimize their potential, and consider outdoor adventure a primary effective way to accomplish this mission. I am seeking to work with companies and brands in the adventure and wellness spaces in order to make an impact through my work. My creative work with brands has included contributing to their social media outlets on a consistent year-round or per-project basis with social photo/video posts and photo contributions to their content banks. I write long-form blog posts and do educational/motivational live video sessions for their audiences on various topics. Some examples are setting and accomplishing goals, navigating fear and uncertainty, training and planning for adventure, dealing with injuries and setbacks. I weave the specific brand’s messaging and products tactfully throughout to position them as an entity that will enable and empower the audience to pursue the adventures that inspire them. In addition to my work for brands, I’ve also managed and leveraged my own media accounts to tell stories that inspire, educate, and create an impact, to secure sponsorship for projects and events, and to grow the audience and market for my personal brand and private coaching (www.instagram.com/elizasampey). I’m interested in picking up some additional freelance work for companies and brands in the outdoor and/or wellness industries. I would love to chat with you about opportunities for collaboration. Cheers!

Whatever the subject may happen to be, my individual approach brings a unique viewpoint to the settings and subjects captured, infusing them with visual richness and captivating moods. I enjoy creating images that capture moments in time, telling compelling stories that clients are excited to share. When I am not behind the camera, I can be found waist deep in one of the region’s many trout streams, getting worn out by my pup, navigating through fresh powder, finding a new trail to explore with my awesome partner, Margo, or basking in the warmth of the many folks that I am proud to call my friends. I am a professional photographer, spirited adventurer, people watcher, partner, and true blue friend to people and dogs …and I hope to meet you down the road!

I chase muskies, too, and have dragged live bait for walleyes, trolled for salmon and waded streams for trout. When I’m on land, you can find me exploring travel destinations near and far or at a short track, watching sprint cars, supermodifieds, dirt modifieds or pavement modifieds.
