In 2003, Sinuhe moved to Los Angeles to work in film and photography - His first project was co-writing the Sony Dreams short "Little Pony" with Filip Engstrom at Smuggler. This was the beginning of four valuable years in the trenches as Filip's creative assistant. Not one to sit still, he also freelanced outside of Smuggler for Yael Staav, Jess Hall and Douglas Avery. That exposure led to shooting still photography for advertising clients such as ING Direct, Volvo, Pontiac and Dell. Also of note are his two projects with Creative Artists Agency, first directing the critically acclaimed stop motion Lego piece for eBay's "Let Them Post" campaign featured in Creativity, Boards and Shoot magazines and directing the EPK for Spinal Tap's 2009 twenty-five year Reunion Tour. The past year he has directed Tiger Woods and Derek Jeter for Gillette, Michael Strahan for Subway as well as Steve Casimiro on several segments for National Geographic.
Sinuhe Xavier started his photography career in front of the lens as a professional extreme skier for The North Face in Bozeman, Montana working with National Geographic photographer Gordon Wiltse. While studying architecture and photography at Montana State University, Sinuhe transitioned his way from in front of, to behind the camera and found his love of visually telling stories. He has been published in National Geographic Adventure, Print and Transworld Snowboarding magazines and has also shot for Burton Snowboards. During this time he also designed the "Heli Pack" for DaKine, a design that went on to be the best selling technical backpack in history and is still in production 15 years later.
