Schreckengost is a filmmaker and photographer based in Southwest Colorado in a small alpine community at 9600’ in elevation. The artist started out in what he calls an “old-school” environment, learning the craft of photography in the darkroom for many years before coming into the light and embracing the digital age of image creation.
After a brief stint of soul searching and a hasty move to Los Angeles to work in the lm industry on commercials and a feature films, he decided to move back to Colorado and start a small footprint production company that could deliver high production value imagery without all the burdens of typical production crews. His favorite subjects move fast and demand an intuitive, journalistic approach. His small production team thrives in the most challenging environments and difficult to reach locations. As the official photographer of the Telluride Ski Resort, his images span the ski industry, travel industry and more. His work captures the risk-taking spirit of the San Juans.
He is an FAA remote pilot certificate holder and does a lot of work with sUAS these days shoot locations near and far from Colorado. Though he embraces all forms of image creation, he tends to lean towards short-form narrative storytelling and commercial work.
