Brock Suska, a Bowlus native who lives in Delano and works as a videographer for Landscape Structures of Delano, was recently near his hometown when he and a photograper worked to capture kids on film while playing at the Taylor Chebet Twitchell playground. The equipment for the new playground was purchased from Landscape Structures, with the company donating a few pieces and helping with the installation.

Brock Suska, a Bowlus native who lives in Delano and works as a videographer for Landscape Structures of Delano, was recently near his hometown when he and a photograper worked to capture kids on film while playing at the Taylor Chebet Twitchell playground. The equipment for the new playground was purchased from Landscape Structures, with the company donating a few pieces and helping with the installation.

Brock Suska hasn’t always worked on projects so near to home in his 16 years with Landscape Structures of Delano. He recently found himself filming promotional video footage for the company at the Taylor Chebet Twitchell playground in Little Falls.

The Bowlus native, son of Bob and Carolyn Suska, graduated from Royalton High School in 1994. He graduated from Bemidji State University and landed a job not too long after that with Landscape Structures. He lives in Delano with his wife and their two daughters.

Suska does some photography for the company but focuses on video work. He does the filming, editing, adding music and all the final touches to each promotional video he shoots. Since the company sells and installs equipment internationally, he has the opportunity for travel.

“I travel all over: Washington, D.C., Kansas, Seattle, an Iowa skate park,” he said. “The fact that we put a new playground relatively close to my hometown is really cool.”

Last year, Suska filmed video in Annandale at a community-build project.

“We do how-to installation videos. We want to promote that,” he said.

He appreciated the Charles Lindbergh theme at the Little Falls playground.

“It’s nice to create a project that fits its environment,” said Suska.

He is pleased to be working for Landscape Structure, an employee-owned company. Working with playgrounds is something Suska truly enjoys.

“I really love what I do,” he said. “Filming kids on a playground — how can that go wrong?”

While it will be several months before the Little Falls video is completed and posted on the company’s website, Suska suggested people keep their eyes open for that to happen. Visit www.playlsi.com.
