Tyler Stableford recently learned that the workwear TV commercial he directed and DP’d for Walls Outdoor Goods has just won a national 2017 Telly Award. The Telly Awards features the best of the year’s video and film projects, and the competition receives over 13,000 entries.
Watch the award-winning director’s cut here:
Added to that honor, are two images chosen for the 2017 Graphis Photography Annual, one of the country’s most prestigious competitions, receiving approximately 4,000 submissions from around the world. The images represent two powerful photo shoots and lifetime memories for Tyler, each from incredibly different locations and approached with different lighting.
The image chosen below is of Adidas athlete Ben Rueck climbing a difficult roof crack on Independence Pass above Aspen, Colorado. This shot was all about timing and tension. Ben has the ability to climb routes that very few people in the world can even attempt, and this line had only been climbed twice before.
In contrast to the rock climbing photo, the second winning image features a Colorado granite quarry worker. For this assignment for Walls Outdoor Goods, the goal was to create a mood that elevated the grittiness of the quarry work, as well as the toughness of the Walls workwear. Goal achieved! Well done Tyler!
