A LOOK INSIDE INMIST

“Filmmakers. Roamers. Explorers. – Artists.” From spending countless nights on mountain tops seeing nothing but the infinite starry sky from the hoods of our sleeping bags, to unforgettable road trips in the Westfalia calling every riverside spot our home. It’s these moments and everything in between that drive our passion to shoot and share the untold stories of moments surrounding us. Ray Barbee once said “You’re going to have to work, best case scenario you find something that you love” life is too short not too. We love working alongside our clients to share their stories and maximize the potential of their products. Located just outside Vancouver BC in the town of Chilliwack, we are blessed to have the highest caliber of wild outdoors, right in our own backyard. Whether we’re working or not, that’s usually where you will find us.

Our greatest fulfillment comes not only through living the adventure, but also in capturing it through our lens, those carving out their own unique story. We hope to inspire people to live extraordinary lives by illuminating adventures and trips from the road less traveled.

DIRECTOR - PHOTOGRAPHER - EDITOR

RJ was born and raised in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia surrounded by some of the worlds most pristine wilderness. His love for film grew simultaneously with his itch for adventure and the idea that he could blend these two passions into one has developed into what Inmist is today. RJ believes that storytelling is the most important aspect of filmmaking, “solid visuals are great, but a meaningful story has the ability to change lives”. When he is not on a shoot or editing in the office, RJ can be found off in the mountains riding his mountain bike or floating down the river scheming up the next big idea.

DAWSON FRIESEN

PRODUCER - PHOTOGRAPHER

With a deep love for solid relationships, Dawson is the ‘yes man’ that never turns down a call for a good ol’ fashioned adventure. With a skateboard in one hand and a few rolls of film in the other, Dawsons creative journey started at the skate spots of Winnipeg shooting lifestyle film photography with his friends. After moving back to BC in 2013 for his sweetheart Bonnie, Dawson traded in his skateboard for a wetsuit and a river snorkel and started soaking in all knowledge of everything outdoor adventure related from the people around him. Dawson has an exceptional ability of bringing stories to life through still images but beyond that he specializes in managing client relationships and making sure all the pieces of each production are in place.

If you were to ask Josiah what his favourite part about filmmaking is he would tell you “its all about inspiration”. Whether that means watching someone else’s short filming and instantly imagining yourself surfing waves in the arctic or creating content with the intention of affecting peoples lives in a positive way, inspiration is the key motivator behind Josiah as a creator. Josiah grew up in Langley, British Columbia where he spent his early years exploring the outdoors getting his much needed dose of adventure. Those experiences later becoming a fuel for his greatest passions of film and photography.
