Here at Shine, we’ve spent the past few years focusing almost exclusively on film. It is our passion, and, as anyone with headphones and a cat fetish can tell you, it’s the prevailing medium of the internet.

But we recently started examining the moments between takes. Gorgeous, compelling stories can be told through the closing of the shutter, which is why we’ve brought photographer John Davis (left) onto our team. His two decades of experience are evident as he stealthily maneuvers our sets, capturing what film simply cannot; single solitary moments of a story.

We’re excited about this new component to our mission as storytellers, and can already see the depth John’s presence brings to our work. We have spent our adult lives documenting and photographing our friends, families, and travels, so bringing this element to our professional life feels like home.
