LEVI FROESE AND JEREMY FRIESEN - DRONE OPERATORS AND VIDEOGRAPHERS
On foot, skis, drone or whatever he can get his hands on, Levi will find a way to get the shot. He is a SFOC certified pilot operator and his masterful drone skills create unique and cinematic shots. He grew up just south of the Yukon Border - one of many early adventures that instilled in Levi a deep appreciation of the outdoors.
Jeremy loves to be close to the action but he also has a very sensitive eye that makes his images as gracious as they are epic. His love for being outside drives him to create inspiring film and video of people actively enjoying their lives in beautiful places.
