CALEB BABOCK & SHAWN LOWE
Best friends from Seattle, Washington, Caleb and Shawn love the outdoors, photography and filmmaking. Growing up in the Northwest where enjoying nature is a way of life, they met in their elementary school unicycle club and their creative partnership has been on a roll ever since. What started out as skateboarding and church camp highlight reels filmed on their parents' camcorders has blossomed into a body of work that is as impressive as it is arresting.

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO EXPLORE?
Getting to see different parts of the amazing world that God created for us.
WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR INSPIRATION?
We find a lot of our inspiration from different filmmakers and photographers that blow our minds. Salomon Ligthelm, Wes Anderson, Danny Cohen, Jared Chambers, and Lonnie Webb. These guys keep us motivated to stack footage.
FILM VS DIGITAL?
Film, film, film! As much as we would love to shoot some gnarly 16mm footy, it’s not practical for our current situation so we have to shoot digital video. Film will always win in our book. Something about the process of developing and how it looks just can’t be replicated.
Our philosophy on shooting is every shot counts. Keep it simple and take your time. Rushing through it will never yield your best results.
