The Best Little Grocery Store

I drove past for a few years before I walked in. In the back of the store is my favorite butcher!

I jumped at the chance to make Speedy’s online presence and they were happy to have a customer and fan of the store remake their grocery store website.. We shot the photos for this site, this helped my understanding the layout and types of stuff they carry. This is a community driven family business and they take the community part serious. So I suggested they do a blog, this gives them a way to communicate with current clients about whats new in store but also what events are coming up. Also a blog is a great SEO tool, it’s keeps people on your site longer but it a way for google to see the site has new content and thats help them rank naturally. Timandtomsspeedymarket.com is a fun one page website, and lots of color and pop. Check out the site but also if your near Saint Anthony Park check out the store. Bring home some great food and don’t miss the butch in the back of the store.

They have stuff wall to wall floor to ceiling, not kidding! Besides having great fresh produce and Boars Head Deli meats, you can cross paths with local and specialty items you can’t find in warehouse grocers.

GE Transportation hired Brown & Co

Ryan shot Videos and Photos for GE Transportation during the 2015 Railway Interchange convention at the Minneapolis Convention Center in October or 2015. 5 videos and edited 2 of them that afternoon. One was a Q&A with Jamie S. Miller SVP
We started with a wide angle to provide a sense of location, then shot close up, and ended with an edited version that included an interview. We also produced a straight-on interview with the new CEO of GE Transportation, it will be used to introduce the Jamie S. Miller internally.
Directing and shooting, I shot PR Photos of the Sales Team at the booth and a group photo of the whole crew while setting up and finding time for video interviews. People weren’t the only things I recorded that day. A walk around the train yard the outdoor part of the convention where I shot PR photos of Jamie and GE’s new Tier 4 Locomotive.

 “I kinda geeked out on trains”

Sitting in the engineers seat and looking out the window of these monster trains imagining that these people have control of thousands of pounds moving at high speeds thats a lot of pressure. Crazy yellow train made to clean up the edge of an old rail line. It’s big wheel opps out and scoops the shoulder of old loamy rail bed into a conveyor belt and dumps it into the next car and then dumps rock on to the shoulder to make a new rail bed that is strong. I have to admit I kinda geeked out on trains.Loram

I love science – video / photo

I love science – video / photo

I geek out on Laboratories and I got my fix last week. When I have to put on a smock and fancy glasses I get excited to learn about science and see their gadgets in use and what they do. This is half the fun of the job! We were contracted to shoot video and photos for a California marketing firm at a testing Lab in Eagan Minnesota. The Lab does many different types of testing on petri dishes they use agar with sheep’s blood. #testing lab #laboratory, #marketing, #Minnesota, #video production, #photographer, #geek

 

Product Video

Product Video

We enjoy working with entrepreneurs that are also inventors. My most recent client invented a horse safety product called Bsafe Horse Tie. We created a video to show off all the features and benefits and safety of his product. Working closely with clients to produce a video they feel good about is what we’re all about. In this case Bill Robinson (inventor) was ecstatic about the video. I can’t wait to see him at the Minnesota Horse Expo
coming April 24, 2015 – April 26, 2015. It’s at the MN State Fair Grounds. Check out the video here.

Best Buy Cover Photo

Best Buy Cover Photo
Now that its way past January I can post about the cover photo I shot for Best Buy’s internal magazine “The Link”. I shot 6 different ways, 148 images in under an hour setup to breakdown. I had fun visiting the Best Buy campus (it kind of feels like a mall) with a Caribou Coffee and other shops on the main floor.

Photography, Best Buy

Photography, Best Buy

Brown & Co photographed small and large displays and shot wide angles for Best Buy. The preponderance of the photos will end up being used internally, however a few photos found their way to a story on their blog, (link below). I enjoyed working with the PR team to shoot photos liked and needed. We had limited amount of time to get all the photos they needed in the two hours before the store opened. -Ryan B.

Children’s Hospital – Training Video

Children’s Hospital – Training Video

This online video training series is for a wonderful group of Nurses, Techs, Physicians and Surgeons. They for a group that when called, respond to a life threatening situations.ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation) is a procedure that uses a machine to take over the work of the lungs and sometimes the heart. They are like a SWAT team coming to rescue a child from danger! It’s very technical and needs a large group to respond and work together with great skill and team work.

I was in intensive care at the Saint Paul branch of Children’s Hospital when I was 14. I have Addison’s Disease, it’s adrenal insufficiency. I take meds and that balances me out. Working with the good folks at Children’s Hospital meant the world to me. This is one way I am able to give back to an institution that cared for me at the moment I needed it most. I never really thought about it, but this is the crux of the reason for working with the medical community.
