A few photos from a different planet located in South Dakota.

An odd way to spend your spring break is to take a road trip from Chicago to Mt. Rushmore. It's a 12 hour drive and all of South Dakota is pretty unremarkable, except for the fact that you can see where you're going to be 20 minutes from when you get there. I also took the trip in 2014, which was before getting really into podcasts and would have been great to have during the drive.

Anyway, turns out the Badlands are pretty incredible and also I got my first try at night sky photography.

Cameras: Canon 6D + 24mm f1.4 and Fujifilm X100s

About Bain Creative

I'm Chris Bain. I'm a web-developer, commercial photographer, and sometimes designer.

I started Bain Creative in 2014, and while it's still just me, I regularly partner with other talented creatives - videographers, copywriters, photo stylists, etc. - for specific client needs. As a company, Bain Creative makes honest, beautiful content and crafts simple, straightforward digital experiences.

Regardless of the project, the goal is always the same - to help companies and brands develop mutually beneficial, meaningful, productive and lasting relationships with their stakeholders. When companies and brands demonstrate, over time, that they care, they earn trust, achieve goals and outperform competitors.

Values are often front-and-center in our work. Customers prefer companies and brands that align with their values. Employees prefer working for companies where profits aren't the only measure of success. And communities support companies that invest in and care about them.  

We would love to help you tell your corporate and brand stories and showcase your values.
