Sarah Whelden

Director of Photography

I graduated from Hampshire College in 2006 and moved from my home-island of Nantucket, MA to Portland, OR in 2007. I work as a freelance director of photography for commercial, narrative, and documentary films, and additionally, my wife Kelly and I own a stock footage company: "The Stacks”. Spending time outdoors has always been a way for me to unwind, and paired with the stillness of shooting landscape photography, it's a perfect break from the hustle of the film and video world. 

Partners: Nike, Adidas, Laika, Wacom, GoreTex, Gerber Gear, Keen, Willamette Valley Vineyards, Weight Watchers, Orchard Supply Hardware, Viewpoint Construction, Courtesy Ford, Cafe Umbria, Sokol Blosser, Biamp, Standard Insurance, and many many more. 

Gear: RED Scarlet-W 5K Dragon, Zeiss primes (18mm-85mm), Aladdin LED lights, Letus Helix Sr. Gimbal, a7Rii, a7S + Atomos Shogun. I am proficient with a vast range of camera systems (Arri, Canon, Panasonic, Sony, Blackmagic, etc) and always prefer to find the best tool for the job.
