    Identifying one’s passion is hard enough, let alone successfully working within your passion, a life long dream for most. I was lucky enough to find a strong connection to the outdoors at a very young age, which led me to my career in the outdoor industry. Like many of us I was introduced into the outdoors by my father. He was able to instill upon me the importance of conservation and protection of the great outdoors as a child. He taught me the Outdoor way and the workings of a firearm, which led me to compete as a NCAA Rifle Athlete. My first opportunity in the outdoor industry was an internship at Realtree Outdoors. After my internship and learning the ropes in the video department, I was hired as a videographer, youtube manager and editor at Realtree. During my time there I developed and hosted a fun fast paced YouTube series called “Realtree life.” From the Realtree life series I was scouted to host and help build the outdoor portion of, the then new media company, Rated Red. At Rated Red I hosted over 600 videos in my 2 years and produced over 30 pieces in the field. Now I have recently started on a new adventure as I create content about the outdoors under my own brand AC Outdoors. Here I plan to develop a diverse audience to whom I can communicate the value of conservation and the outdoor lifestyle. -Attended the United States Air Force Academy -Graduated from Columbus State University with Bachelors or Science - NCAA Riflery Athlete - videographer/ editor at Realtree Outdoors - Realtree life Host 2 years - outdoor host for Rated Red - producer/ videographer rated red - 2018 POMA pinical Broadcast award winner

We built Minnesota Permit to Carry a Firearm book and then Gander Mountain adopted the book as part of their firearms instruction as well as the USCCA. Which is now called Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals.

    My first memories of duck hunting were of being with my Father tucked away on a willow island along the Republican River in southern Nebraska. That same season I convinced my mother to buy my father a mallard duck decoy for a Christmas present. Even at the tender age of six, I knew there was something special about this hunting thing. Growing up in Central Nebraska, my best friend and I had great parents that would dump us off in the surrounding marshes and grain fields and we hunted everything from crows and pheasants, to coyotes. But it was all of the waterfowl that I saw that consumed me. Hardcore waterfowlers tend to gravitate to one another and over the past 30 years I have developed many long lasting hunting friendships. Great photography begins with great opportunities; my time spent with good friends nearly always results in quality photos, and quality memories.

    Tess Rousey

    As the daughter of a dairyman, Tess Rousey and her family were living farm-to-table before the phrase became a buzzword. Like her father, she expects to work from sunup to sundown until the job is done. Tess is also a hunter, raised on the land by parents who taught her to appreciate the bounty nature provides, whether it’s dug out of the garden or drug from the woods. Her rural background is complemented by a Fine Arts degree and over a decade working in the outdoor industry. Because Tess understands both the lifestyle and the business of the outdoors, she can highlight products and people in an artful way that not only generates sales, but also creates an aspirational aspect to brands. With her firm knowledge of layout and design for print and on-line marketing, she serves as her own art director, shooting photos that combine art and advertising in a fun, profitable way. Tess thrives on the creative process, and loves to discuss shoot concepts, collaborating with the client to ensure the end result is a success.

    Since I was a young boy, I have been obsessed with the outdoors hunting, fishing, and outdoor activities. My obsession exploded in 9th grade of high school after filming my friend harvest his first deer with his bow, I found a deep passion for filming and editing hunts. That had sprung me into working at a Mathews Pro shop where I became captivated by bow hunting and archery, along with filming hunts and editing them. Since those days, I have worked with many individuals and a few companies to create unreal fishing and hunting videos. I have done projects for the Pursuit Channel and the Outdoor Channel, as well as many freelance projects. My true passion is bowhunting, but I can’t stop myself from diving in and filming and editing for those fishing freaks. I have over 14 years of video production and editing experience, mostly in video editing. I took 4 years of video production and editing courses through out High School. Then continued on to an expertise institute in Oralando, FL called Genius Dv Institute, where I became certified in Final Cut Pro editing software. Recently, with the same company, just finished my training for Adobe Premier and the Adobe Creative Cloud. My goal for each video is to recreate the memory in an unforgettable way so the viewer will be taken back to those moments and really feel those emotions, just when he or she was at full draw or setting the hook.
