My expertise is in delivering great still & motion media files that meets you or your clients marketing goals.

To do this I have invested an enormous amount of time learning how digital marketing & analytics works with my still & motion media. This is a new technology with a learning curve, so I take online courses, read books,magazines, white papers, attended seminars.

Understanding how to read the back-end analytics reports helps us to write up and fine tune our production schedule to capture media that can be placed into print and used online.

I also stay current with latest updates to Lightroom, Photoshop, Premier Pro, After Effects, InDesgin and wide range of still/motion camera gear. Being able to effectively communicate with everyone in the pipeline makes the whole project more efficient, creative, and profitable.

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

Lets start...

First step... We need to set up a meeting. 
My mobile number is posted to the 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 Wonderfulmachine.com. 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...
