Working with renowned photographer Peter Lik, SYMG provided location scouting and logistical support for Peter's television show "On the Edge". As a professional photographer, it was imperative to Peter that we had outstanding locations secured to show off his skills as a landscape photographer. Working with the park service, we were able to obtain the necessary permitting to meet Peter's needs and then provided logistical support and talent during the filming days.
