Visualize The Adventure

Wingate: the formative layer of sandstone most prominent in the Colorado Plateau, forms so densely that it provides a perfect surface for climbing, highlining, BASE jumping, and all other activities that we at Wingate Motion enjoy doing in our free time.

With our team of seasoned adventure athletes, we strive to produce, direct and publish some of the industry’s most spectacular visual media - from the canyons of the American Southwest to the peaks of the high Himalaya. Using ultralight cinematography equipment to maneuver over cliffs, ice fields, and high risk avalanche zones, we are able to get ‘the shot’ that everyone always asks, ‘how the heck did they get that camera up there?’ We are good story teller’s because we passionately experience everything we capture.

Cody Tuttle - Director

The menacing cloud of snow grew closer, yet all I could think about was framing the car sized blocks of ice as they ripped down the granite face. Was it in focus? Was I able to stabilize the camera as I shook in terror? My climbing partner yelled for me to get in the tent and brace for impact. I waited for the last moment before ducking inside hoping I captured it, still mesmerized by the enduring power of the avalanche building above us. 

As an adventure athlete and photographer, Cody Tuttle will always venture past the end of the trail. He seeks those who’s need for adventure and something real outweighs the normal comforts of life. Those who would rather ski fresh powder every day and live in their car over the american dream of life in suburbia. Home has become an idea rather than a place. Living out of a Sprinter van with his wife and dog, he has embraced the simple life. Cody combines ultralight cinematography equipment with his esteemed devotion for the outdoors to take viewers on a visual journey many would never experience otherwise.

Cody’s passion to combine travel with his craft has taken him from the rugged hills of Haiti to the serene yet merciless mountains of the Himalaya to capture moments of extreme athleticism, indescribable beauty and raw emotion. His good nature and flexibility allows him to maneuver through a chaotic yet incredibly rewarding pursuit of creating stories that will capture the imagination and inspire discovery.

Scott Rogers - Director 

Scott is an adventure photographer and athlete who currently resides Moab, Utah. His specialties include motion and still photography of rock climbing, slacklining, BASE jumping and expedition photography. He has been climbing and slacklining for 14 years, skydiving and BASE jumping for 8 years, and shooting high quality content for as long as he can remember.

For me, the biggest part of getting a good image is immersing myself, without reservation, completely in the moment you’re trying to capture – whether that’s a BASE jump that you yourself are going to do along with your subject, a group of children in a rural village in the Himalaya and you’re playing some sort of impromptu game of charades in four different languages, to capturing the true gamut of the human emotion through authentic adversity, courage and success. I try to capture the truest essence of a moment in time, as I saw it and as it unfolded, and recreate that to share. You can’t achieve that if you’re watching from a distance, you need to be an integral part of the community you’re documenting.

Scott’s work has been featured in numerous publications, including the New York Times and Outside magazine.
