Our name is inspired by Ansel Adams, an explorer and photographer who embodied adventure, authenticity, and activism. He was a pioneer of using thoughtful, artistic expression to spark social change. We seek to support individuals and companies who identify with the drive and passion Ansel had to make the world better. Through conscious growth strategies, we catalyze our clients visions, helping spread their message to generate maximum impact on the right side of history.
What we do
… is growth, plain and simple.
No vanity metrics. We help companies build in meaningful ways to help scale their global impact. We provide custom plans for each client because “one-size fits all” strategy isn’t going to help your company stand out among the rest. Providing a good product or service is a baseline expectation. Automation means companies have to differentiate in more conscious ways, offering meaning and purpose to society. Companies that don’t make a difference won’t make anything for long. Character matters. Who you are matters. If you dream of making a difference, we want to support you.

Founder and Growth Strategist
After all of his camera gear was stolen at the end of an expedition in Alaska, he had to resort to his skills around growth in order to survive.. From this he realised, that with these skills, he could make a much larger impact on the world. Now, Christian’s sole motivation is to find inspirational people and brands to work bring Cause driven campaigns to life, and help the world better because of them.
“Born in Butte, Montana, McLeod spent the early years of his life as far from an ocean as continentally possible. When his family moved to Ireland he was naturally drawn to the balmy, briny coastline.
Luckily (for him, and for humanity) he picked up a surfboard and a camera right around the same time, smack-dab in the middle of his formative years.
As a young, self-taught photographer from a meager background, Christian has in just a few short years developed an iconic personal style in his work. To us, Christian symbolizes living life on the edge, and enjoying every freaking second of it. It’s not about the stuff that you or I have, it’s about the stuff we all have: life, limbs and mother nature.”
