Our Team

Our family goes way beyond Todd, Brendan and Eric, but this trio is at the very soul of Mountain Mind Collective. Above all, we strive to bring passion, knowledge and FUN to every project we work on. As former wilderness guides and avid kayakers, skiers, mountain bikers and climbers we understand difficult work environments and find that hard to reach places are our favorite studio. We are passionate about telling stories - of people, places and companies that have a positive influence on our world.


Brendan Wells

Brendan began capturing memories via film and photography since he was eleven. While pursuing a career as a professional kayaker, Brendan also studied Film Production and Environmental Studies at Fairhaven College. Since graduating in 2014, he has dedicated his life to environmental education, creating high quality, inspiring films and exploring the world via kayak. 

Todd Wells

Todd has dedicated his life to kayaking since he was in high school. Competing in international races from Chile to China, Todd is well known in the extreme kayak racing world, but spends most of his time exploring new rivers and hunting for the next expedition. Todd was recently awarded the National Geographic Young Explores Grant, which brought the MMC team to explore and document the unknown glacial-fed rivers of Alaska. 

Eric Parker

Eric, better known as just "parker" has been a part of the Mountain Mind team since the very beginning. Eric has worked alongside photographers like Paul Nicklen, and has been the principal photographer on projects for Red Bull, National Geographic, Adidas, Outside Magazine and many more.
