ALISSA HESSLER

LEFT BRAINED

STRENGTHS

I make even the most camera-shy feel comfortable in front of my lens. Creative ideation is my forte. I'm calm in a storm. I love to seek out and tell stories of inspiring people manifesting good in the world. 

EXPERIENCE

With a diverse background in art direction, photography, and film production management, Alissa has worked as both the director for creative talent and as the creative talent. She has shot and produced content for international publications and brands, art directed and produced complex commercial shoots, managed global launch events, and orchestrated rebrands of international corporations. Her true passions are storytelling and empowering others to create impactful project work that educates and influences positive change. In her free time she continues to champion young farmers and rural small business owners through her Urban Exodus project and podcast. Alissa's book Ditch the City and Go Country, was released in 2017, distributed by Macmillan Press.

WHO WE ARE

JACOB HESSLER

RIGHT BRAINED

STRENGTHS

I'm a gear head and can light anything - from a mobile phone to an airplane. I'm a minimalist and an advocate for less is more. I'm comic relief on set. I love exploring and photographing the great outdoors and convening with nature. I'm a true introvert.

 

EXPERIENCE

A graduate of the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography, Jacob has risen to acclaim in both the fine-art photography world. Following Brooks, Jacob pursued a post-graduate degree in graphic design at Parsons, the New School for Design in New York City. His work has been exhibited and added to the permanent collections of museums and institutions all over the country. His first fine-press book Boundaries released in 2017. The book is a collaboration with the celebrated Cuban-American inaugural poet Richard Blanco. He is currently working on Thirst, a project highlighting the freshwater contamination crisis in the United States.

WHO WE WORK WITH

We strive to shoot for brands whose values we share and products/services we believe in. Companies who pay their employees living wages, who are environmentally conscious, and focused on sustainability - both in the products/systems they create and when it comes to their own growth as a business. 

We also love to work with rurally-based small businesses who are looking to grow their customer base beyond their immediate community. We have helped numerous small brands, farm-based businesses and main street retail stores expand their reach with our high-quality images, content strategy and promotional partnerships with Urban Exodus.
