A Mellow Blend Of Work And Play

Back in September, a crack team of Tramps traveled to SUNY ESF’s Newcomb Campus: a world-class research & field station located in the geographic center of the Adirondack Park. We were tasked with capturing photo and video of the ESF conference facilities and team-building curriculum for use in  a campaign that will be equal parts business-to-business and destination marketing.

Our timing could not have been better. Sun-drenched afternoons gave way to brilliant sunsets, and sunrise shoots were marked by loon calls and fog dancing across Arbutus Pond.

While the photo shoot schedule made for long days, the trip doubled as a staff retreat and we found ample time to unwind. With summer projects behind us and the addition of a new team member, Staci Oswald, it was an opportunity for us to connect in a setting that we all enjoy in our personal time.

In addition to the Tramps in attendance, we welcomed a few special guests: Staci’s husband Karl joined us Friday evening, as did clients/friends Matt and Nancy Fuller, owners of Fountain Square Outfitters in downtown Glens Falls. Matt is also a Partner at Meyer & Fuller, PLLC, another Trampoline client.

Also in attendance was Old Rip Van Winkle. “Pappy” as it’s more commonly known is a hard-to-find Kentucky Bourbon that Mr. Fuller scored and was gracious enough to share. Pappy, combined with Karl’s home-brew, a couple of guitars, and Cards Against Humanity, made for a fun evening.

The pictures tell the rest of the story.

Matt, Cara and Sean hiked Goodnow Mountain at sunset to capture stills and time-lapse video.

The fantastic early morning light on Arbutus Pond made for some fantastic photos, like this one taken by Sean.

The Fountain Square Outfitters photo shoot involved, you guessed it, more guitars.

The Pappy was doled out with a fair warning: If you don't enjoy whiskey, pass it on!
