Carl Bortolami


I'm a business guy that runs a creative still & motion media company based in Bellevue WA. My work in the photo/video industry spans 20 years. Here’s my Linked-In bio. 

Photography is my passion. The company tells your Great Places to Live, Work, & Play stories in print, on line and on your wall.

Asset Management

In the post production process my editor or I will run the still files through Lightroom. The files are sorted, Key-worded, basic comments are typed in. This is important for SEO search.

Next step is developing/process files for print, web, & WallART. As a client you will have 24/7 
log-in access to asset files at Zen-Media.com 

Motion files and projects are stored on in-house hard drives. Files and projects are delivered through Dropbox.com, or Vimeo.

Keeping Current

To keep current I set a side  4 hour blocks of time each week to take courses, watch videos, and attend seminars. 

It's the only way to keep up with the latest updates to Lightroom, Photoshop, Premier Pro, After Effects, Indesign, plus the wide range of still/motion camera & lighting gear. On the social media marketing side, I have to stay on top of meta data, SEO and analytics. There is alway something new to learn. That’s a good thing!

Being able to use these tools and effectively communicate with everyone on my crew and in the pipeline makes the assignments more efficient, creative, and profitable.

Now, the only thing left to do is get to work...!

Lets do some business...

First step... We need to set up a meeting. 
My mobile number is posted to the top left. An in-person meeting can be set up in Bellevue or Seattle areas. A phone discussion will work as well.

A pre-meeting email with links to examples and marketing goals will help us figure out how plan out the assignment. I can work solo or call up a full crew when needed.

Together we will focus on producing great still & motion media assets that meet your marketing goals...
