Writer/photographers/videographers Phil and Susie Audibert focus their lenses, microphone and pen on a wide variety of subjects, ranging from local history and the environment to the centuries-old tradition of mounted foxhunting. With the help of creative partner, Ross Hunter, they have produced full length video documentaries about legendary cookbook author
Edna Lewis (“In the Season: The Edna Lewis Story”), a history of a small town (“Gordonsville, Virginia: A Strong Fabric”) the effects of the Civil War on a rural community (“All Four Years, The Civil War in Orange County, Virginia.”), the 100th anniversary of a rural volunteer fire company (“A Candle in a Candy Store”). Most recently they completed a documentary about the integration of a local public school system (“Someday: The Unexpected Story of School Integration in Orange County, Virginia”).
They have also produced several short films documenting their extensive journeys: (“From a Train Window,” “Cuba in Seven Days,” Canadian Rockies: From Jasper to Banff”). They have also produced several mini docs with an environmental theme: (“Rapidan: a Journey Down a Virginia River,” “One Oyster at a Time,” and the award winning “300 Tires and an Old Sofa”). And they have produced a dozen short videos about mounted foxhunting. All of these videos and more can be found by going to the
AHHA Productions YouTube channel.
Phil and Susie are also accomplished still photographers. They invite you to browse through their extensive galleries of images, organized into three groups: Places, Images, and Foxhunting, the latter being an extensive 10-year collection of photographs of the oft misunderstood sport of mounted foxhunting. In 2010 they published a coffee table book of their best foxhunting images: (“The Art of Foxhunting”).
Phil comes to this team with a lifelong background in photography and journalism both print and broadcast. He has won 20 first place awards and Best in Show (2010) from the Virginia Press Association for his feature series,
The Insider, published (from 2005-2011) in his hometown weekly newspaper, the
Orange County Review. He was also a regular contributor to
The Virginia Sportsman Magazine. Something of a jack of all trades (and self-admitted master of none) Phil has been, over the years, a radio news director, a cattle farmer, innkeeper, ski instructor, musician, and historical tour guide. Susie comes to this team with a natural eye for a compelling image. Schooled as a veterinary technician, she is also an accomplished dog trainer, with considerable experience in obedience, agility, search and rescue and animal assisted therapy. She too is a jack of all trades, having been an innkeeper, cattle farmer, livestock inspector, ski instructor, and now a hand-built clay artist.
