About Me

RiverGrizzly LLC is a creative partnership managed by John Rako. We do video and photo work, primarily related to adventure sports, instruction and industrial/commercial work but for other markets also, including fashion and glamour.

We have associates skilled in high-end photo and video work, filmmaking, photo re-touching, video editing, graphic arts and marketing.

We are particularly interesed in developing working relationships with local models, MUAs, hair and wardrobe stylists and others. We are interesed in fashion editorial and runway as well as glamour skills. So if you want to be on our contact list of go-to people, please contact John here.

But RiverGrizzly is also interested in helping actors and models develop more extensive portfolios and demo reels. Don't hesitate to contact us about your portfolio or about photo or video projects. John travels throughout NJ, PA and DE and can come to you for your project.

We try to do trade shoots on a regular basis. But trade or TF* shoots will be more limited and selective for a while because we recently won a bid for a major project that will take up the majority of our efforts. That doesn't mean you shouldn't contact us. We like to meet new people and want to stay in touch with those friends we've worked with in the past.

We have more than one opportunity for models interested in a body painting project. If that appeals to you contact John here.

Additionaly, we are still looking to test for a couple of related extreme/adventure sports projects. So send a message here if you would like to be involved.
