Meet Hunter Lawrence, adventurer, photographer and the owner of the famous golden retriever Aspen (part 2). It is not just his amazing work as a photographer that has pursued us to write about him but also his outlook on life.
As Hunter says, he is fascinated by culture; and so are we.
“How home forms us, and leaves not one fiber of our being untouched; how we have all adapted to a way of life appropriate to home.”
Hunter lives in Denver, Colorado, with his wife Sarah and their mountain pup, Aspen. He is one of those people who turned their hobby into a full-time job. Since he started back in 2008, he has worked together with some very influential companies as he helped them to developed their business through the stills and motion visuals.
It is not about the size or field of the business, it is about having the same focus: content must speak through. We will present some of his photos taken for interesting companies.
“Juniper Ridge is a group of mountain lovers that formulates Wilderness Perfumes from the plants, barks and flora around various regions across California. It was such a rich experience to spend a few nights out on the trail with them in Big Sur as they built their scent for one of their newer scents.”
“Mountain Hardwear is an iconic outdoor brand. They’ve been making some of the highest quality mountaineering gear for almost 25 years. We spent 2 seasons working with them, taking their gear across all that Colorado has to offer. From blizzards to torrential downpours, we tested and tested this gear. Bottom line, we love it.”
“Pendleton Woolen Mills is a Portland, Oregon based company that first started in 1863. They have a thick heritage of making some of the worlds best garments, and continue to manufacture one of the best in the industry. It was such an honor to work with such a well respected brand on their Fall line.”
Across the Atlantic
Hunter also took amazing photos of Iceland – the northern wonderland. Some are personal and some of them were taken for Icelandic companies.
People thought they were crazy, when they told them where they were going
Hunter and his wife Sarah visited Iceland for the first time while on their honeymoon. People thought they were crazy, when they told them where they were going. “Iceland?” they’d ask. “Isn’t it just frozen up there?” The truth is, Iceland is hardly just a frozen piece of land floating in the North Atlantic Ocean. It’s a country full of beautiful landscapes, culture, and people.
When Hunter worked with the Buck Mason an LA based clothing line on their “Define Home” campaign, he answered the question: “What defines home for you?”
“Home is not about the location, design, amount of expensive things inside or square footage; it’s about the people that are there every day to greet you when you return. I could have all the material things I ever wanted, but if it weren’t for the community inside my home…it would never be home.”
