Into the Grey.  Harold Lee Miller spent a cold couple of days in the woods of northern Michigan last spring shooting a campaign for LaCrosse Footwear that’s out now.  The objective was to create some zen-like images of hunters in the environment, and Ben Seal of Seal Ideas was adamant that they not be typical hunting shots — a little more space around the subjects, focusing more on the overall experience than the kill.

The only creatures who got shot in this two-day project were our subjects, Chris and Casey Keefer, hosts of Backcountry Quest and Dropped.  No animals were harmed!  Some might have been inconvenienced on Keefer’s 700-acre game preserve, which afforded plenty of good locations.


That part of Michigan experiences wild swings in the weather — literally changing from snow to sunshine to cloudy and back to snow again several times a day.  Miller and his team preferred a cloudy look to direct sunshine, so they waited out the weather a bit while it decided what it was going to do. LaCrosse creative director Haven Anderson and his producer, Peter Christenberry, also braved the cold, along with a video crew shooting footage nearby for LaCrosse.


Thanks to Brian York for his deft retouching and post-production.
