For those of you unfamiliar with 13th Witness, he is a young New Yorker, best known for his work capturing images via photography and video. 13th Witness, AKA Tim McGurr took his first trip to Australia to work on the New Balance x Gold Fields project which saw multiple creative processes unfold over a couple of perfect days of sunshine in Ballarat and Melbourne. The end result was the creation of a music video for the Gold Field’s song Holy No and an accompanying, behind-the-scenes documentary which also doubles as a video look-book for New Balance’s lifestyle heritage range, married in most scenes with clothing from Sydney label Vanishing Elephant. This look-book depicts just a small slice of the creative process that went into this project. – NB 574

This Timberland Abington video lookbook was created by 13thWitness and Zack Mctee. The Americana, New England themed video was shot in Freeport, Maine on Wolfe’s Neck Farm.
Since really being put on to the world by his good friend and fellow filmmaker Levi Maestro, 13thWitness has taken over the world of photography and placed his stamp on the overly saturated, creative medium. Having already worked with the likes of John Mayer and Nike, 2010 was undoubtedly an impressive year for the young creative, and thus, he chose to highlight a bit of his recent work in this featured footage. Indeed, the sky is the limit for this young cat.
Solidifying his name as one of the most talented photographers/videographers out right now, 13thWitness in conjunction with Belvedere Vodka continues their series A Day In The Life by spending some time with DJ A-TRAK’s Fool’s Gold family during their time at Coachella.
