Cinematographer and Editor
Thatcher Adams is a cinematographer and video editor. Trained under Director of Photography, John Toll (Braveheart, Almost Famous, Legends of The Fall) and Chief Lighting Technician, Jim Planette (Ocean's 11, Traffic, Syriana). Thatcher has also had the pleasure to work with many A-list photographers (Peter Lindbergh, Anne Menke, Daymion Mardel, Dewey Nicks, Alexi Lubomirski, Peggy Sirota, Chris & Sarah Rhoads, Carter Smith, Reed Krakoff, Pamela Hanson, Arthur Elgort, Anders Overgaard, Collena Rentmeester, Martyn Thompson, Jennifer Livingston, Richard Phibbs, Michael Warren, Amanda Pratt, Greg Kadel, Kate Powers, Marc Hom and Tim Walker). These brushes with greatness inspired Thatcher to create Piggyback, so he could tell visually compelling stories in his own unique style. In addition to shooting, Thatcher also enjoys overseeing the post production process for his clients. Fascinated by the capabilities of Premiere, DaVinci Resolve, After Effects and Cinema 4D, Thatcher is enthusiastic about emerging technologies and the new power they bring to talented storytellers.
Cat is the newest member of the Piggyback team. In additional to an amazing eye, she has great taste in design and music. When not shooting, editing or scouring SoundCloud, she can often be found taking in a show at the Middle East in Cambridge.
