Pacific Standard Magazine, “Awakening the Grizzly”

Top five things we learned on this shoot:

  1. We don’t know how to properly pack a car with gear.
  2. Parking tickets in San Francisco cost $30.
  3. There is a point where bear puns stop being funny, but you still make them anyway to get groans from the rest of the crew.
  4. Taxidermy animals can have some great derp faces.
  5. Grizzly bears are super cool, and not only when they’re kept in a giant refrigerated room.

Many thanks to Taylor Le and the rest of the team at Pacific Standard for sending us out to shoot a bear the only way we’d ever like to (with a camera).
