The name RockerDown comes from Rusty Worden (RockerDown Studios President and Founder). Rusty grew up in Calaveras County, California. Calaveras County is a rural town that was holding true to the theme of the Old West. Every year they hold a “Frog Jump” which is a county festival born of the story by Mark Twain titled, “The Jumping Frog Contest of Calaveras County”. At this festival, they held a contest to judge the furthest distance a motley band of contestant’s could get a frog to jump. They also held a rodeo at this festival and not was here Rusty first heard the term, “Cowboy Up”. The term is similar to “Man-up” and was often heard when a cowboy was up on his bucking bronco or bull and was ready to be released from his or her gate.
Rusty was fond of a different brand of music than most of his peers in this western town and he jokingly coined the phrase, “RockerDown”.
While our name and company logo are very tongue in cheek, we take our products and service with a healthy dose of seriousness that starts with treating you how we would like to be treated as customers. Perhaps one aspect of the old western town in which Rusty spent his forming years held true. The customer is always right. After all, if they are not always right then they are not your customers, are they?
RockerDown Studios rocks at photography and video and we are not afraid to admit it! We’re good because we don’t hold to a single style of photography and video production. We keep reaching for a higher bar and once we get there we grab for the next one.
We are also open to your ideas and creative influence for (almost) any kind of shoot.
For information on corporate photography, please visit our corporate site.
We can refer you to photographers who offer boudoir-style shoots on request, but we do not provide this service. Hey, we’re rockers, but we embarrass easily. It’s nothing personal.
Experience. Dedication. Awesomeness.
With experience in wedding photography and video dating back to 2000 and experience in photography and video dating back to 1995, we offer a level of experience and consistent dedication to providing affordable photography and video for a very long, consistent time.
We absolutely love what we do and we challenge ourselves on each and every shoot. As artists we are excessively detail oriented and we are constantly seeking to improve in ways that benefit all of our clients!
