About this pro

How does your business stand out?

While others offer Life Story productions, I am especially well prepared to elicit very interesting stories from older clients due to my own age and the fact that I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor who has worked many years with children, couples, and older folks who might not trust just anyone with their personal stories.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Working creatively with people of any age from infancy to old age. See below: a Life Story I did for a 97 year old woman.

    Thank you Larry
    Larry was great!!!! We came from out of town and i surprised my girlfriend with a proposal. Larry helped give location ideas and kept me up to date on weather changes. The pictures came out perfect

    Capturing the essence of his subjects is what Larry excels at. Superb quality, patience and professional attention to detail best describes this talented gentleman.

    We had a wonderful experience honoring my good friend as she reminisces of the old days. I loved how Larry focused in on her and captured her expression as she told her story - and Lee's friendly demeanor bringing out the story in it's richness. They went beyond what was expected, and took the time to make it perfect. I was elated when I recieved the video and sat down to watch it. Such a gift, that will be an heirloom in her life story.

    With almost no advance notice, Larry came to my house and videoed a whole house,a tack shed, and large garage all full of personal belongings with empathy and respect, and a goal of excellence for the final product. I recommend him and his work most highly.

    I recently moved here from Calif. and wanted a video of my place to show my friends in CA my "new digs." Larry came to the rescue and did the video. It was fun doing it, he was such a good coach for doing the 'walk-thru' version of my house and grounds. My friends thought is was very well done. I might have wished we had done a little longer video. But I'm happy.

    Larry was a wonderful videographer. He was a professional with precise detail, clear communication, and a dedicated work ethic. We feel so lucky to have chosen him to capture our special day on camera. He really went above and beyond. We look forward to seeing the finished product. Thank you so much Larry and Leigh!


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I am semi-retired and don't have to depend upon my photo-video work for a living. I thus have very, very reasonable pricing and do some pro bono work for non-profits. My hourly charge usually runs about $50.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I subscribe to Videomaker which keeps me informed on all the latest developments in video and photo work. A few years back I received a certificate in documentary video making at Zaki Gordon Film Institute in Sedona, AZ.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have had several careers, I worked overseas three times as an English teacher, then as a commercial photographer, a child & family therapist, and I now combine two careers--as counselor and videographer at the local county jail, working part time. I just love working creatively with people of all ages.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Over the past few years I have done mostly public events like lectures, stage dramas, memorials, and concerts. But in the past I have done numerous outdoor portraits of families and indoor shots of large groups. I also like doing classes for people wanting to improve their home video skills.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently finished a Life Story on a woman who turned 97. She was so energetic and happy that it was really fun to video her talking about her life as a dancer, a mother and store manager. She still volunteers every day at a local high school and I videoed her at work. She is a joy to just relate to and that made the work of editing in all her childhood pictures, music she danced to, and family snapshots--so much easier.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you have a parent or older relative who's life story is remarkable in any way, look into doing a video life story ASAP before that person loses the ability to recall and talk about the "old days" and all the important events that made them who they are now.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I like doing unusual photo-video jobs such as an upcoming job videoing a repeated-vows wedding ceremony in the Red Rocks of Sedona, AZ. I especially love adding music to my videos--something I have a real, feel for.
