Inside the Studio

Darin Sims

Darin founded Studio D with the goal of "redesigning the outdoors" back in 2010. With over 20 years in design, marketing and business consulting, he brought his talent and experience to the outdoor world and has established Studio D as a leader in strategic design, motion graphics and quality video production. His experience and hands on approach lets him understand your business needs before transforming them into a company image that sets you apart from your competitors. A long time business owner, Darin has worked on numerous large scale projects with Fortune 500 companies as well as state and local governments, and Studio D now has over 300 clients across North America.

"I came into the outdoor industry from the business side and soon found areas that I knew I could help companies in. I was told 'the outdoor industry isn't like others', and to some degree that is true, but business is business.  It was just a matter of learning the nuances and dynamics of how the industry works, which I had done in many other industries throughout my career. At that point you are able to pinpoint how you can help companies grow and succeed. When you provide services of any type, you must be able to adapt and continuously look at what you do and how you do it. Improvement always comes from looking inward, not outward. Trying to emulate someone else always leaves you playing the role of follower. Studio D was built on being different, and that is still what drives us everyday."

Dean Davis

Dean is a 20+ year hunting industry veteran having produced and hosted the Primos Truth series for 7 years, Antler Insanity for 3 seasons and most recently hosted his own show Just Hunt. He is an accomplished hunter, videographer and producer and brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and his unique story telling ability to Studio D productions. Dean has also worked with and for major retailers and distributors in the outdoor industry and understands the business of selling hunting products.

Nathan Heatherly

Nate's knowledge of video and photography equipment rivals the best in the business. He has been a freelance videographer and photographer for 6 years having filmed for national shows including Bone Collector, Hank Parker's Flesh & Blood, Travelin Hunter, The Chase, Just Hunt, Monster, and Primos. He is very creative with a camera and pushes the limits of equipment and hunters alike. Capturing content and telling a story without saying a word are what drives Nathan. "It's all about quality. Capturing content relies heavily on having the right equipment for the job and knowing how to get the most out of that equipment. The best camera is the one you know inside and out, but that being said, you can't squeeze juice from a rock."
