Commercial Film Shoots

Home / Commercial Film Shoots

The area in and around Timberline Lodge is one of the most unique and often ideal sites in the world for commercial photography. The Lodge stands majestically on the south slope of Mt. Hood in the Oregon Cascades. As well as offering year ’round snow, this truly beautiful alpine setting offers a variety of interesting architectural and scenic backdrops.

While the beauty and strength of the mountain speak for themselves, the interior of the Lodge can perhaps be best summed up as “rustic elegance.” In addition to its skiing and hotel accommodations, Timberline offers a sauna, heated outdoor pool, and hydro spa. On-snow access to existing terrain or custom builds are available by request. We have worked with companies such as Burton, K2, RedBull, Monster Energy, Poor Boyz Productions, GoPro, and more. Timberline has long been a favorite of the fashion industry as well. Over the years, J. Crew, Nieman Marcus, American Eagle, Nordstrom’s, REI, Macy’s and Kohl’s, to name a few, have all chosen Timberline as a location. Numerous other fashion-related and product advertisement shoots continue to take place here. To best serve this growing interest, we have tailored a number of our services to the specific needs of film production crews.

Please keep us in mind for your future plans and feel free to call if we can answer any questions.
