MARK GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND!! This review is long overdue but I just finished watching the edited and raw footage that Mark has sent us and just...WOW!! I knew he did so much on the day of BY HIMSELF, but the footage was so great. He got so much detail! I hired Mark as a wedding present for my sister and I KNOW she won't be disappointed! He got so much that we didn't even think of mentioning to him to include. This man knows exactly what he is doing! Mark was great from the beginning! From being able to film my sister's wedding at 2 weeks notice after a last minute cancellation, to his excellent communication and suggestions for my sister's wedding, to his patience on the day of the wedding and being able to adjust to every last minute change. You can tell that this cinematographer has experience doing this and he knows exactly what to expect and what questions to ask when you are lost. EVERYONE was so pleased to have him at the wedding!! The guests thought it was so cool to have a DRONE at the wedding!! I only paid Mark for four hours but the wedding ceremony was a little behind schedule and he STILL suggested going to the reception to get the introduction of the Bride and Groom. This man was so amazing. He asked all the right questions and even asked if we wanted to get footage of the bride and groom reading each other letters in their hotel room before the ceremony, and that sparked the idea of having them add that to their wedding day itinerary. THEY LOVED THE IDEA and it CAME OUT SO BEAUTIFUL! Mark seems like the kind of man that has seen it all and done it all when it comes to weddings. He blended in so well with every setting. He knew exactly what to say in each situation and other times, you didn't know he was there because he was working and blending in so well! The footage Mark sent us transported us back to the day of the wedding. My family loved it so much and are still talking about Mark and his great work. THANK YOU SO MUCH, MARK! Each time I talk about my sister's wedding, I mention you and the detail you put into everything! You were even great at following up with me after the wedding and printing the DVD's and DVD cases with photos from the wedding, SO GREAT! My sister loves every bit of it! She was so happy with all the little details you captured! Thank you! Thank you!

My wife and I used Mark Steven Photography for our wedding in 2013 and are STILL enjoying the photos. When we first encountered Mark, he was full of ideas, locations, samples, etc. that made his selection process easy. Once selected, the communication was always open and available. He is The day of shooting (I can only speak on my experience and what I heard from my wife). Me and my groomsmen had such a blast shooting with Mark. The poses were fun, they were good AND MY WIFE LOVED THEM (which is the most important thing)!!!! My wife also mentioned to me that during her "prep" process with her Bridesmaids, they didn't even know he was there and still got some great quality shots! As for the finished product, there are still pictures that blow my mind! His price is very affordable, the picture quality is terrific, he was on time and kept the schedule, and just an all around true professional! I would 100% recommend his services and connections and will use Mark Steven Photography again in the future!

As a professional photographer, I needed to hire an additional photographer. I chose Mark Steven because of his extensive experience. He was wonderful, and I will hire him again, if he is available. He was very prompt in responding back to me. He checked with me on a regular basis to see if there was anything that he could do to help me. On the day of the wedding, he was on time and performed in a professional manner, he pays close attention to details. The quality of his work is outstanding. Thank you Mark, Debra Mahijah Photography

Creative Deviants was in charge of all of the cameras, photography, and lighting for my music video shoot, and we were able to shoot four different sets all in one day because of their hard work. The day was smooth and fun, and the post process is so much easier thanks to everything CD was able to achieve!

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the shoot we had planned went sideways very quickly. Aristokat Media, being the professionals they are, worked with us and salvaged what could have been a complete disaster. I will use them whenever I need services in the LA area! Really appreciate their artistry and customer service.

The quality of the work Jordan did was fantastic. I was very pleased with the outcomes. The overall price he charged was such a save for me because of the professional equipment used along with the quality of the work. He was easy to work with. He communicated well to make sure we were both on the same page about what I wanted and made the process fun and natural along the way. I would definitely recommend Jordan Tritton to friends and family and continue using him as reference for future photography and cinematography projects.

I first met Jordan Horn at Paramount Pictures in 2013 where he was interning at the time. I could tell immediately Jordan a dedicated and determined individual. I was campaigning as Miss Los Angeles for Donald Trump's MISS CALIFORNIA USA pageant. I was in need of a video reel, and photos for my portfolio. Not only did he photograph headshots, lifestyle, and catalogue photos; he also edited them and shot video during the shoot which he edited and crafted into a beautiful reel. The content I received was professional and I still use these today. I still reach out to Jordan for other projects when he's available, watching the progress he's made is inspiring. He's an incredible editor and cinematographer and has worked for Emmy award winning studios and done editing for Primetime shows like the Ellen Show, Dr. Oz, Monopoly Millionaire's Club and more, all while still pursuing independent projects. Jordan has an outstanding work ethic. The efforts he puts into his work is relentless. I highly suggest hiring him for your projects. I guarantee you will be more than pleased the results he yields, In my experiences working with him he won't stop until you are satisfied with your project.

Jordan is a very great person to work with. He is very in tune with everything that i have brought to him as far as a job. He was very hands on with my music video in the the project of mine which was a succes. He did a beautiful job in putting together a behind the scenes footage that allow viewers to really see all of the work that went into the sonh as well as the video. He has successfully help me brand a couple of businesses by taking my visions and bringing them to life thru graphic designs. His photography is amazing, and it feels good to be able to have all of my work done at such a high professional level. I definitely rely on him pretty much for everything because his work is outstanding and there is nothing better then working with someone who really takes the time to understand what you want the first time. Another plus is that he completed all the projects well done before the required dates that we agreed upon. Thanks for everything and can wait to work again real soon on my next projects Jordan! Video, photography, production, graphic design, producing, directing, very talented individual. Highly recommend!!!

I highly recommend Garry for his knowledge and creativity. He is always a pleasure to work with and will add ideas on the best ways to present any story. We worked together in both San Francisco and Los Angeles covering major news stories and feature story assignments. He is always well prepared and very knowledgable technically as a camera operator. At KTLA Ch.5 TV, Los Angeles, we won an emmy for our coverage of the 1st Interstate Bank fire. Garry did a great job of live coverage at the building which was burning while glass was falling out above us. He was able to get amazing pictures of the fire and we were able to speak with survivors who escaped the inferno. Working at CNN, San Francisco, we spent hours in a helicopter during a storm chasing a hot air balloon which crossed the Pacific attempting to set a round the world record but crashed on a northern California mountain. We had to jump out from the skid because the coptor could not land and spent a miserable rain filled wet day on the mountain where balloon pilot Rocky Aioki, the founder of Benni Hana restaurants, was rescued. Both of these stories were outstanding and Garry's work was far and away above average. Garry understands the intricacies of video and telling a story. Garry also looks after your costs and completes projects within your budget. Speak with him face to face, you'll like him. Thank you, Steve Lentz, Lifevideos.com

It is a pleasure working with Garry. He did the editing for our company's first video project. He began the project promptly and kept with it through several revisions until we had the finished product. Easy communication. Sincere, patient and professional. Great results. Highly recommend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZMoBM4yakA

As a fellow director, I look for professionals who exhibit expertise and proficiency in their craft. From the first project I worked on with Tina things that most said were impossible were accomplished swiftly. This is also to say that my expectations were exceeded on each recursive account by Tina's uncanny ability to capture the exact vision which I once imagined. It is rare to see the image originally visualized on screen, but Tina delivers without fail. I have found this is not only due to her impeccable affinity for cinematography but also her unwavering charming and personable nature. She is hard working Producer, Director, and Cinematographer who accomplishes what she sets out to achieve with passion and quality.

I worked with Myron Parran on a project that I produced this summer entitled 'Sister, Sister, Sister.' Myron was very professional and he even introduced me to a lighting and a sound tech that were equally professional. The project was shot in Hollywood and Santa Monica with a newer director, and Myron proved to be very patient and informative--lending his ideas and suggestions to improve upon our initial shot list. Myron even volunteered to shoot the project on his red cam so that we could have an even better product. We shot long hours over the weekend and even did a quick move to a new location within one of the shooting days. Myron and his team disassembled and reassembled quickly enough for us to take advantage of our new location and increase the overall production value. I would recommend Myron to anyone and everyone. He was our rock.

About

I am a DP and cinematographer specializing in short films, commercials and music videos. I am available for videography and cinematic wedding videos. My unique perspective on storytelling is the creative product of both my work and experience as a director of photography in the realm of TV and film combined with my background in documentary film production. I can promise you a very unique high-end product within an affordable and fair budget. My production kit includes a full Steadicam rig, 10 ft carbon fiber Jib and slider, and I'm also a proud owner of the groundbreaking Movi Carbon Fiber Gimbal Stabilizer. All of these tools will be at my disposal and included as part of my production kit for no extra charge. It's uncommon that an individual or videographer would actually own all of these items, which is just another positive from my film career that sets my work apart from the rest. I'm incredibly punctual, reliable and professional. I also come with a very stylish and deep wardrobe to help me blend in like a chameleon for any occasion.

I am able to convey emotions by the type of imagery shown and the sounds that complement it. I'm well versed in all types of media formats (short films, documentaries, music videos, commercials, Instagram, social media, etc.). As a cinematographer, I was taught by an amazing teacher who has won awards for videos from N'Sync, 2Pac, Sigur Ros, the list goes on.

I can take ideas that start in the brain and end on the screen.
