The Beans And Rice
It's January 2017 and I just finished a pencil sketch of the North Carolina coast, putting a star next to all of the best surf spots. My long time friend and adventure buddy, Jackson Fox, plops down onto the couch next to me and catches a glimpse of the drawing. "LET'S DO IT! Hey, maybe we can even get some sponsors!" From that first trip we have collectively grown The Beans and Rice into a full service production company.

Providing outdoor adventure brands with the highest quality, campaign-tailored, image packages.
The Beans and Rice was created to solve a problem faced by marketing and creative directors in the outdoor industry. Brands in this industry require a ton of quality photos of their products in action. Ambassador programs can be touchy, leaving the director tasked with the hassle of hunting down the promised images from a 'free spirited' adventurer. When brands sign up to receive an image package from The Beans and Rice they are given a hard date of delivery and know exactly what type of content to expect. Our scope of adventure is quickly growing as we build a team of passionate in-house photographers and artist from all over the country.
