Outdoor Lifestyle Video

Looking to promote your company with an Outdoor Lifestyle Video? This can be one of the most effective ways to market to new customers. In the days of Social Media, customers are sharp. They know when they are being marketed to. We do not want to see a commercial that tells us how great the product is. We want to see it in action and make our own judgment. That is why Outdoor lifestyle videos are such a valuable piece of promoting any product. Especially in the hunting and fishing industry. As anglers and outdoorsman, we know what is fake and what is real, better than any other market. It is not something you can fake. Being an outdoorsman. It is something engrained in each of us and we want to use products that support the lifestyle we love. Let us help you prove it.

Westin Yancey | Modern Outdoor Media

Growing up I always had a strong passion for the outdoors. My father was an outdoorsman and we would fish “Like Father, Like Son, Bass Fishing Tournaments” on the weekends. I would put on my upland bird vest and walk up to a wooded area near my neighborhood and hunt Squirrels and birds with my pellet gun. You remember the type, you pumped them so many times, that the final pump had to be pushed down using all of your body weight on top of your leg. I would collect patches that I found at tournaments and shows and have my mother put them on my fishing shirt.

Now I am blessed enough to work in the outdoor industry as a brand manager for Undercover Truck Bed Covers. Building an outdoor division to show how useful out truck bed covers are for the outdoorsman. During the last 4 years, I have grown and managed many brands across the web. Modern Outdoor Sportsman, Bass Fishing Nation, and Undercover Sportsman are a few of my main platforms. It has brought me great fulfillment and has allowed me to cross pass with many outdoorsmen I now call friends. But I wanted to do something more…

I want to share my Vision and my Passion with men and women who aspire to build a career in the outdoor industry. Because regardless of what someone might say, it is possible. One thing I have learned by managing these platforms. Is that, there are thousands of young men and women who aspire to “Get Sponsored” by outdoor companies. But many of them do not know a good way of going about this. I aim to help.

Meet Brian Cornelison

Brand Manager

Brian grew up in the small town of Rogersville, Missouri. There he graduated high school in 2007. Brian’s first experiences in the outdoors were on his grandparents 80-acre plot of land and his aunt & uncle’s lake house around Table Rock Lake. This is where he first learned how to shoot a rifle and the feeling of having a fish on the end of his line.  Brian’s love for sports and competitive nature made the transition into the outdoor and fishing industry simple. He loves to compete in Kayak Bass Fishing tournaments and has co-anglered in a handful of local bass tournaments.

Living in the Portland, Oregon area for over 4 years he enjoys chasing smallmouth bass in Portland’s local Willamette & Columbia rivers. Though bass fishing is his favorite Brian enjoys taking advantage of the Pacific Northwest’s outdoor opportunities such as salmon & steelhead fishing, hiking, and upland hunting. When he isn’t in the outdoors you can catch Brian shooting baskets at the gym, watching sports, or grabbing drinks with friends.

Hunting Category Manager

Since I was a little boy id go hunting with my dad. Whether that was bow hunting the early season or walking the wet logging roads late in the year, I was always one step behind my dad. I have had a passion for hunting ever since I can remember. It is something that has been a way for me to forget about everything else and just enjoy my hunt. I harvested my first animal at 10 years old with my dad by my side. It was a 3×2 Mule Buck that I shot at 260 yards with a .243. I won’t soon forget any of my hunting memories, especially my biggest buck to date. A blacktail I harvested at the age of 17. It ended up being the #2 youth blacktail in the state scoring in at 171 5/8”. Its the memories made hunting that will always be with me.

November 16th, 2013 I started up a hunting page, aspiring to be known in this industry. I started up PKD Out. A brand showing full circle of hunting. We started at 0 followers. Growing rapidly but still not as fast as I’d like. We hit 1,000 followers before the year was over. And in January of 2017, we were at 9,000 followers with 8 sponsors. I know how to hunt but it was tough for me to figure out how to get constant followers. Until Wes and I put our heads together… As of June, I am sitting at 17.4k. We figured it out, and boy am I thankful for it. It has taken my brand to the next level. I’m am the type to always be grateful for what I have but never satisfied and always hungry. I constantly remind myself that Chasing my dreams is whats going to get me where I want to be in life and I remind myself daily of this especially during those late nights and early mornings.

When I saw Wes taking off with this idea to help people “get sponsored” I couldn’t help but jump on board. I want to help people with the knowledge I have gained over the past 4 years of growing a brand from scratch. It isn’t easy, and sometimes you feel like giving up, but I can promise you, nothing great ever comes easy, don’t settle, go get it and let us help!
