frequently asked questions

How do you decide what to feature on Camp Trend?

Good Question.  When it comes to our films, we look for niche stories set in beautiful places that ultimately inspire the viewer to get out there for themselves. We like providing a mini escape from the over-civilized world.

Featured gear are things that we've tried on our own.  If it's well-designed, makes camp a better place, and does minimal harm to the environment - we'll feature it.

Who’s the team behind Camp Trend?

There are three of us full-time:

Mark Christy spent 10 years as a commercial director for NFL Films.  He co-founded Camp Trend in 2014 and mostly dabbles in the creative direction of the brand. Follow Mark on his Instagram.

Nives Riddles worked on high-end fashion and editoral shoots as a makeup-artist and stylist. She's now the reason that our shoots look so good. Follow Nives on her Instagram.

Carl Christy rolls in a 97' campulance and makes sure the operations go smoothly at Camp Trend.  He handles the social media channels, collaborations, and community outreach. Follow Carl on his Instagram.

We also have a few loyal friends that help us out and we can't thank them enough. You guys/gals know who you are??

Do you really operate entirely on the road?

Oh yes.

Creating authentic content requires a commitment to the lifestyle. Living on the road puts us at the core of what camping is all about. Also, it’s one of the most exciting things we’ve done in a long time.
