Don’t Think Twice: The Alter Fellowship - Connor Guest

Connor has been busy, from filming in the Atacama Desert for ACCESS Chile, to Bangladesh, and on to Africa, he’s been making a name for himself as a one man crew capable of telling personal stories and capturing the most beautiful visuals along the way. Take a look at this first cut from Bangladesh.

Meet The Collective

Andy Bardon

Andy is mentally tough, and athletically one of the most capable people we know. Where most adventure photographers lack real skill with their camera and rely on amazing locations. Andy can take his commercial skills into some of the most “real” terrain on the planet. From high on El Capitan in Yosemite, to the top of Mt. Everest, and under the power of the ocean shooting surfing on the North Shore of Hawaii. A quick look at his portfolio and it all makes sense, he does this because he loves it, and it shows.

Production: ACCESS Collective has partnered with Full Tilt Films who are spearheading this project, bringing in ACCESS Collective to supply the talent. Full Tilt Films is made up of two of the worlds most elite adventure filmmakers, Dan Ethridge and Nick O’Mealy, who have worked together in some of the most remote parts of the world.
