BORN INTO PHOTOGRAPHY, GROWN INTO FILM
About the Crew
Shannon Vandivier- Director of Photography/ Cinematographer
I was born into photography via my father, and professional freelance photojournalist Kevin Vandivier.
Early on, I was trained to offer brand specific messages using visual imagery such as photo & video. For me, my craft is not simply beautiful imagery. Rather, the end goal is to pull all that is "epic" and "awe striking" into the realm of visual storytelling.
Today we work with brands and agencies around the world including Sitka Gear, Yeti Coolers, Patagonia, Orvis, Smith Optics, Mathews Archery and more. As of 2017, Cold Collaborative produces the Hunt Masters TV series on the Outdoor Channel.
Our desire is to insert Cold Collaborative into environments and situations not suitable for large productions teams. Our minimally invasive approaches are geared to provide our clients with cinematic footage without being intrusive to the elements surrounds us.
As a standard of providing our clients with state of the art films, our base standard for filming is on the RED platform.
