Welcome. I’m Jorie DeVilbiss, small town country girl and ever evolving photographer. I’m the creative force behind Brand West Media and I specialize in making high quality visuals for the people and businesses of the west. When not shooting or working, you’ll find me outside, riding, roping, working horses and dogs, always with a camera in my hands. I love the West, running with my herd, wide open spaces, back roads, my gorgeous cutting horse, living in the country, my hometown, fighting for the underdog and anyone who is passionate about what they do.
I studied photojournalism at Brooks Institute of photography where I learned the technical skills to make good pictures. But all the skills in the world don’t amount to much until you apply them to something you love. So I took my skills and headed home. To the country, to the barn, doing chores, feeding, cleaning, saddling, horseback, gathering, doctoring, branding. No fancy equipment, just what I find in the moment. The dust settling through the sunlight at the end of the barn after throwing hay, the cowboy and his dogs resting for a moment in the late afternoon sun, the steam rising off a horses back after working cows, the look in a cowgirls eyes when she talks about her good horse. Authentic. Beautiful. Simple.
What does all this mean for you? It means that you are getting someone who speaks your language. Someone who understands long days and hard work. It means that when we work together you will get professional yet authentic visuals that speak to your audience, capture their attention and help you grow your business and achieve your goals. So, whether you are an individual or business, needing the right photograph, video or design, you’ve come to the right place.
