As with all good stories, Elements Mixed Media grew from a narrative of close calls, taken chances, and dramatic page turns.
Seth’s career is a lifetime of personal adventures, from kayaking many first waterfall and river descents in the early 2000’s, to making the world’s longest overland traverse by vegetable oil in a Japanese fire truck that he helped design.
It’s not just the pursuit of adventure that draws Seth in… it’s equally about the opportunity to capture stories along the way. His adventure, photography and film background make him uniquely suited for travel, tourism and adventure storytelling. He recognizes the critical importance of planning and research, while simultaneously holding the peripheral vision to capture off-stage magic and on-the-fly moments. It’s this ability to slide from micro to macro vision as a director that uniquely positions the EMM team in the field: a well-oiled collective of agile, visual artists that get the shot you didn’t think you needed, but can’t dream of living without.
