My job is taking/capturing the media files you need to market & grow you business. To do this I can work with your team or we hire a talented support crew.

Keeping Current

I started out working with film cameras back in the late 80's, started working with Photoshop in 1999, started doing full digital production in 2010. Both photo & video technology just keeps getting better! Still & motion media is posted instantly world wide. We can collect data and interact with the users. It's an exciting time to be in the still/motion capture business!

To keep current I set a side  4 hour blocks of time each week to take courses, watch videos, attend seminars. It's the only way to keep up with the latest updates to Lightroom, Photoshop, Premier Pro, After Effects, Indesign. Plus keeping up with the wide range of still/motion camera gear. I also have to stay on top of meta data, SEO and analytics.

Being able to use these tools and effectively communicate with everyone on my crew and in the pipeline makes the whole project 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.

I'm going to ask what is your marketing budget?
The estimate process cost my company between $300 to $1,000 so I need to know we are in the same price range. 

For the next step I talk with Craig Oppernheimer and his team at They write up a detailed  assignment estimate, help in selecting support crew members & freelance talent.

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