The Crew

Director of Photography

Draper White is a photographer and cinematographer based in Carbondale, Colorado. For the past 10 years Draper has been striving to combine his love for the outdoors and a passion for visual story telling.

Thanks to his nordic ancestry including Eidis Hansen, known as the Strongest Man in 1800’s Norway, Draper aka “Macro-Man,” is as comfortable hauling camera gear up to 11,000 feet in 3 feet of snow, as he is shooting close-ups of flowering lily pads in a Louisiana swamp.

In his free time Draper is usually scouring google  earth for abandoned mining sites on mountainsides, playing ultimate frisbee, fly fishing/gold panning or experiencing gravity through mountain biking or skiing. You can see his work at draperwhite.com.
