Porto

We just recently returned from visiting the city of Porto, Portugal, and with it we brought a lot of travel photos that we took throughout.

One of our passions is photographing our travels, and Porto being a World Heritage Site and surrounded by both an Ocean and a River full of wineries, you can imagine how cinematic everything is.

Porto is a World Heritage Site, and the downtown areas are incredible to walk around in.

Take a look at some of the ones we added to our portfolio on Photoshelter, or check out our 500px/Instagram adventures for even more.

Science. And Tech.

One of the many reasons we love what we do here at Sutro is the variety of projects, challenges, and ideas we creatively immerse ourselves in as we work with different clients around the world. This time around, we teamed up with MW Tech, a high-tech company in Porto, Portugal, who is quickly growing to becoming one of the most respected optic sources technology providers in the world.

With a current re-branding effort for the company, an upcoming website and multiple conference exhibits and talks, it was time to invest in a small video to introduce the products and services the company offers worldwide.

This last September we were in Portugal, and spent a whole day filming their high-tech labs and offices at Tecmaia, a pretty great and exciting tech campus venture in Portugal.

Our challenge this time was filming stages of product design and evolution of a very high-tech nature. Small details, tight spaces, machinery, and much more. We even had to use IR goggles for one of the shots, so you can see what is actually happening in front of you.

It was an amazing learning experience, and an incredible creative challenge, but thanks to the patience of our clients, and of course the tools we used to keep the workflow as effortless and productive as possible, we are now happy to share the final result with you all. Two videos were produced, one with simple animated text slides, and another one without.

Below, you can watch one of the versions. Everything was filmed mainly on the FS7, with cine gamma modes, and an amazing lens collection. ARRI LED lights were used to make sure we set up the shots properly, and of course, everything was edited in our Final Cut suite in Oakland. Final grading through DaVinci Resolve made sure we kept our cinematic quality we are known for already.

Thanks for the great adventure, and wishing MW Tech the best of success in the tech industry worldwide.

Framed Photos

We recently partnered again with our friends at Redbone Media, to have a couple of our photos framed and sold to a client in the other side of the country.

Check out the final look here! Incredible job by the framers, and we couldn't be happier to see some of our photos hanging on people's homes.

Be sure to check out our multiple photography pages, and portfolio, and online store for many more.

Happy Wednesday!
