I always find it strange to learn someone has never been snowboarding. It’s even more awkward to discover they don’t take part in other outdoor activities. It’s in my mind, absolutely imperative that we all take time to explore the great outdoors. And there is no better way to do this then through action sports. It’s within these social circles that we are made better. This is where we become the very best version of ourselves. What type of lifestyle athlete are you?
Now matter what you do to get down, get out there and collect as much content as you can. Bring it back to my team and let’s show the world what having fun is really about. Just remember, you only have ONE LIFE. We believe in you, but please be safe out there. #YouGotThis
Action sports has a way of bringing our best and brightest into the limelight, but it’s what we do with this newfound attention that defines us. Action sports are about more than just contests and getting big air. If this is all you focus on, you’ll eventually burn out or even worse, you’ll crash and burn. We work with our athletes to create careers of longevity. More importantly, in today’s age everyone has the chance to be great. It’s no longer about being the best, but instead it’s becoming the very best version of yourself.
Base Jumper Clayton Hoyt Butler employed us to edit his videos in 2013. One of the first films we produced was from his ski base jump from a special location known as Pooper’s Point. Once delivered and distributed online, we made sure to back it with some organic marketing by tagging many of the companies Clayton wished to represent. Soon after posting, we were contacted by GoPro’s User Generated Content department. They asked if we could re-package his content for a new edit put forth with the GoPro branding and editing style. It was only then, that we found Clayton a larger following. It was only after sharing, AND re-sharing his content multiple times in different ways that we found success for his brand.
Case in point, companies like GoPro are not going to notice you right away. You have to work towards your goals by producing creative content on your own. You have to create new and unique content regularly to bring awareness to your skillset and/or any products you wish to sell. Below is the full video released by GoPro featuring Clayton and his crew.
Did you notice the strategies put forth by GoPro. The video itself is short, sweet and to the point. As the last seconds of the film roll down, they immediately push each viewer to subscribe. They also share more content from their channel directly in the ending credits. Videos like these are what we hope to help you create for your own brand. What’s your next step?

CHASE PHILLIPS / Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Cliff jumper / lifestyle athlete
Chase is unlike many of the other athletes who come into contact with JoshLloydMedia. He is unique because he produces all of his photography and video personally. Over time he has not only built a skill-set that ranks him as a poly athlete, but he has also learned how to both shoot and edit premiere level content. As Chase came into his own, it was clear that there were still things that he needed help navigating. As a rising star in action sports, brands began pushing contracts on him that he was unsure about signing. It was only then that he reached out for our help.

“My proudest moment in life would be every time I found the strength to overcome my fears. We all know how difficult it is to face the things that we fear or those things that make us uncomfortable. Its a slow build up of anxiety and doubt, which usually scares us, making us back down from the things we want to achieve. Being able to develop the courage to adventure outside of our comfort zone even when we know there is a risk of failure is ALWAYS something to be proud of.
As I get older I learn that the more risks I take and the more fears I face the more powerful I feel and that is how success is reached. never met someone so determined to live their life to the fullest”. – Laura Messner

On January 15th, 2015, Clayton took a fall while paragliding. His location was remote and did not receive aid in time. He passed away that evening. His conviction to reach the edge was only matched by the love for his wife Amber. Clayton’s only intention in life was to bring a light heart, a positive attitude and energy to everyone he came to know.
On April 19th, 2016, three weeks after having conquered her second consecutive Freeride World Title, Estelle Balet died in an avalanche while snowboarding in Orsières.
