MOTOFISH

 

GREG SWENEY - DIRECTOR/PHOTOGRAPHer

Georgia native, but home is the PNW. Grew up in family of artists. Married my art school sweetheart. Two lovely children and one monster puppy. I like options and double checking. Can obsess over clouds, water and roads. Being outdoors makes me happiest. Key lime pie anytime. Interested in most everything. Always have an emergency banana.

CHRIS CUMMING - DIRECTOR/PHOTOGRAPHer

Chris was born in Greenwich, CT and after 18 years of watching his father commute to Wall Street when it was time for college Chris studied economics at Denison University. After college Chris entered the investment business and what he quickly learned was that ‘quantitative analysis’ was not his strong suit. Art school sounded a whole lot better and a few years later Chris became the ‘moto’ in Motofish Studio where he serves as a photographer and director. Chris lives in Seattle with his wife and son whom he occasionally has to leave for work and often times the commute involves an airplane. Chris’ favorite part of Motofish are the people, ‘our friends have become our employees and our clients have become our friends’. His favorite part of dinner is dessert.

“My experience working with Motofish has been exceptional. I have been aware of their incredible talents for several years, and I finally had a chance to collaborate with them last year as we developed images for our photo library on Brand Central. They are a nimble team that can adapt to any situation in the field, and at the same time—orchestrate the inner workings of a fully functional studio for projects that require detailed finesse in a controlled and repeatable environment. Throughout all phases of our project, dialog was open and clear, and response time to query was immediate. Conveniently, they are local to Redmond and they are a one-stop-shop for all things photography and motion capture. They have much experience supporting clients that live in both branded realms as well as in retail/merchandising focused circles. Additionally—they are well versed in the high-level of organization needed to successfully develop and deliver consistent product focused assets (in high quantity) for catalog or online sales (Brooks running shoes and apparel). I highly recommend considering Motofish for your project as they punch well above their weight, and bring fresh perspectives and impeccable taste to any level of story.” - Stephen Smith, Creative/Brand Direction, Microsoft

“Brooks Running has entrusted Motofish with an intensive set of photo production needs for over 8 years. We rely on Motofish expertise to deliver sustainable, scalable, and cost-controlled photography solutions. Their excellent communication, lean management principles, and problem-solving work ethic has made them a critical partner for us, and they consistently set a high creative bar while staying on time and within budget. “ - Dylan Kahler, Sr. Creative Project Manager, Brooks Running

“The seamless integration of video and photography would become a cornerstone to establishing our identity. We tell stories through the emotions of people; how they feel, the joy, the sense of peace, and the compassion and humility from our service professionals. We appeal to our customers because we’re real and authentic, we care.  It’s this focus on the customer that aligns with our values as an organization. I’m fortunate we turned to Motofish as our partner to deliver this important motion and photographic work. Chris, Greg and their crew brought invaluable collaboration, creative direction and furnished the highest quality product. I see these assets every day, and every day I’m reminded of the good work we’re trying to do. “ - Brian Miller, Manager Brand Creative, Premera
