Adam's 20 years of location scouting gives him a ‘take no prisoners’ work ethic in everything he does. "He’ll get you that shot - the one you see in your mind's eye."
In the mountains, underwater, on the open road or by foot, Adam will deliver the goods, on time and on budget. Guaranteed.

Two Brothers, a joint venture with 7 Seas Productions, is the first real photo production service in the Colombian Caribbean. Cartagena is at the centre and may be the uncrowned capital of northern Colombia. Something must be right about it to make it onto the cover of Time Magazine with the subtitle 'the Colombian Comeback' and to inspire Wallpaper to make it the editor's travel pick for the month of August.
36 islands make for a rich diversity of sandy beaches and marine fauna, while the city itself is both modern and colonial. Cartagena is blessed with style-sensitive boutique hotels of all kinds, offering not only accommodation options for entire teams but also backdrops for shoots. Numerous villas and beach houses provide a wealth of alternatives. Productions in other regions and cities of Colombia, such as Bogotá, Medellín or the Amazonas, can be arranged upon request.
Recent productions include SCHWAB (OTTO group), Elle France and Vocé.
