The other day I got a chance to do a different kind of photography and take stills during a commercial video shoot up at Trapper’s Cabin at Beaver Creek. Trapper’s Cabin is an amazing luxury private hut on Beaver Creek mountain that can be rented out. It includes a private chef, a hot tub, and ski-in/ ski-out access. I collaborated with Vail’s TV8 who was filming the shoot and I was photographing on assignment from Vail Resorts Photography. The purpose of the assignment was to capture lifestyle moments of two couples enjoying the cabin’s amenities and experience. With commercial photography like this, the goal is to come away with imagery that gives you the feeling of wanting to switch places with the subjects in the photo. The two couples were not professional models but were amazing to work with nonetheless. It was almost 5 hours of shooting to get all the setups on the shot list and here are some of my favorites from the day.
