Creativity Magazine’s December, 2008 “Ad Agency of the Year” issue featured my cover image (and sidecar outtake) of the brilliant execs of Boulder-based Crispin, Porter + Bogusky. I had so much fun photographing a company that I often work with. These gentlemen often help me edit and retouch my projects, and it was a great time having them in front of the camera for a change.
A sincere thank-you to Teressa Iezzi at Creativity Magazine and Steve Sapka at CP+B for their art direction and production. This was a great shoot and proved to come with some great recommendations for their vision with this project. I think that the final product turned out great! Even in the cold conditions and long day, the shoot went smoothly and was a memorable time. Thanks you two!
Kudos to Alex Bogusky, Rob Reilly and Andrew Keller for enduring the bone-chilling Rocky Mountain temperatures at 11,000 feet with grace! (I had only a small screaming fit when my frozen hands painfully thawed out…) Like I said, I have worked a lot with this group in the office, but I finally got a chance to get them out and on the other side of the camera! I had a ton of fun, even in the cold. Congratulations on the feature! It is an extremely well deserved spotlight, going to a group I know well.

Stetson, and dozens more have hired him to shoot provocative commercials with wide-angle
footage that transports viewers into every scene. Using dynamic lighting and
handheld camera work to charge his projects with emotion, Tyler has become one of the most
