This past month, I’ve photographed environmental business headshots of the Rocky Mountain Credit Union team members located across Montana.
Working together with the RMCU marketing team, we created a variety of on-location business portraits for their online Marketing and business visual brand presence. My relationship with this great Montana business has been strong. Over these last few years, I’ve also photographed dozens of studio portraits of their RMCU board members.
Rocky Mountain Credit Union’s humble beginning dates back to its founding in 1940. Through community-driven programs and providing financial service relationships of lasting value, this financial institution has become a bedrock of support for its clientele throughout Montana. Rocky Mountain credit union has branches in Bozeman, Butte, and Helena. To complement the design of their new website, they wanted to create environmental business portraits that reflected their professionalism.
Our goal was to make new environmental business headshots of their Home Equity & Mortgage and Consumer Loan Officers team. Furthermore, they wanted to have photos that were not only bright and inviting but also could showcase their hardworking employee’s personalities.
From its inception, Rocky Mountain Credit Union‘s mission has been focused on providing exemplary service to its members/owners. They needed professional high-quality business portraits that represented that ongoing mission.
That’s where I came in.
By making the time to really understand their future goals, together, we were able to create a variety of professional environmental business headshots of their team. Photographs that showed a personal side to how they present themselves as a business.
I had a lot of fun with this group. Here are some favorite photographs from my time with them. -M
I’ve been working with Cravins Adventure Lunches in Bozeman, Montana to photograph On-location lifestyle Product and studio Photos.
This family-owned Bozeman sandwich shop creates delicious lunch options for local fly fishing guides and their clients. They strive to make the experience easy by organizing lunches for their guides’ clients and packing their meals in biodegradable containers
Back in early March, the pandemic essentially shut down Montana’s local fishing economy. Impacted by this pause in business, Cravins took the initiative. Moreover, they decided to redesign their website and update their visual content to elevate their brand during this downtime. They wanted their visual brand to better reflect and resonate with the clientele they serve.
So for their Spring 2020 Marketing Campaign, I was hired to photograph on-location product lifestyle photos and studio portraits of their lunch offerings. We wanted to show anglers enjoying their lunches on the river. Equally importantly, we wanted to create clean, well-lit studio photographs of their lunches for their website and marketing outlets.
I love commercial photography projects like this. They allowed me to do what I do best – telling stories with photographs to foster connection and to solve client’s visual challenges. In doing so, it allowed Cravins Adventure Lunches to better resonate with their target audience.
I spent a lot of time listening and understanding the needs of Cravins Adventure Lunches. We wanted to make the best business portraits and on-location product lifestyle photographs possible.
Through good communication, we were able to clearly identify how best to convey their brand and message. We decided to photograph the project over two days. First, would be in their commercial kitchen for studio photos and the second day on location of the Lower Madison River. As a result, I delivered a variety of creative, visual options.
Alas, early spring rains forced us to reschedule our Madison River on-location session a few times. Eventually, our patience for a perfect day on the river was rewarded. The guides models and I found a good weather window to complete our photo needs.
I’m really happy with how Cravins Adventure Lunches Spring 2020 Marketing Campaign turned out.
These photos below are some of my favorite that I made during this project. I’m so glad I could be a part of this project. -M
A few weeks back, I created a series of environmental business portraits of Katie Smith, of Wild Path Consulting.
Katie Smith is a seasoned marketing professional and owner of Wild Path Consulting. Through Wild Path Consulting, Katie is a catalyst for businesses that care about the future of the planet. How does she do this? She provides strategic marketing consulting to help these organizations succeed and adapt fluidly. With her expertise, her clients remain flexible in how they position their products and services through social impact marketing.
I was excited to chat with Katie to discuss headshots and photos to convey Wild Path Consulting. My goal with each client is to ask the right questions. From these conversations, I can understand my client’s values, who they serve, and what they want to showcase.
With Katie, my goal became to bridge her love and experience of working in the outdoors with her marketing communication skillset she brings to the brands she serves.
From our time in the field and behind the lens, we created some diverse, environmental business portraits of her. These photos help tell the story of Wild Path Consulting. Now, Katie can have the visual content to showcase her marketing and communications brand. Each potential client now instantly has a strong vision of who she is and the values of Wild Path Consulting. Her photos highlight her bond with the outdoors, her connection to those who value a healthy, sustainable future, and her excellent professionalism.
Katie is an adventure enthusiast and a self-professed marketing nerd.
She studied environmental science and psychology during her undergrad studies.
The idea that high-level marketing can be used for good and connection inspired her to hang up her outdoor guiding career and pursue a Master of Public Relations degree. Katie’s Wild Path Consulting business has since evolved into a career helping rebels and disruptors bring their business ideas to life.
Here are some of my favorite business portraits from our time together. -M

I’m proud to share my Best of 2019 Portrait Photography!
I’ve been looking back on this past year and the photos from my Best of 2019 Portrait Photography with so much gratitude for the couples, families, and business professionals I had the privilege to photograph and build relationships with.
As a destination family photographer, I was lucky enough to travel to Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, many parts of New England, and all over Montana this past year for my portrait photography clients.
Everyone had so much to celebrate in their lives.
I harbored so much fulfillment in helping each one of my photography clients rediscover what they valued most in each other and their relationships – in turn helping to bring out the best versions of themselves.
This year I chose the photos for my Best of 2019 Portrait Photography that showcased the photographs that meant so much to my clients.
