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!

Charles Perry is most definitely on his way to making a name for himself in video production. Aside from being timely, professional and easy to work with, he is exceptional in bringing out the key emotions in his art that make each film relatable, realistic and consistent. Charles is very knowledgable when it comes to the perfect equipment for a project or an idea, he not only brings cinematic quality to the table, but he can tastefully organize a piece with talent and ease. Charles is the tops, and I would recommend working with him to any friend or professional in need of a videographer!

Tiffany is so sweet, professional, fun, and overall amazing!! The minute we talked on the phone for the first time, I knew she would be perfect for our wedding vision. Her experience is also something that stood out to me over other cinematographers. She is also extremely affordable for A+ work. So thankful for her patience with my crazy family and her ability to stay calm when things were crazy and stressful. I appreciate all of her ideas and I am so excited to see the video!!

Garry is a wonderful individual to work with. He was always prompt on shoot days, and he really is a one man band he has everything you could possibly think of and hope for in regards to equipment. I am very excited to see the fruits of our labor, and I will definitely be working with him again in future projects throughout the season. Thank you Garry!

    Excellent photographer! He truly knows what he's doing. I was especially amazed at his skill with lighting, and he was a pleasure to work with! I also had him do some video for me once and I love the footage he gave me. Definitely recommend him to anyone wanting amazing photos or video!

    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.

    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.

    About

    I am a DJ, producer, editor, and cinematographer. I offer motion graphics and photography. I do everything. As a DJ, I strive for great music selection, feeling the vibe, and a professional attitude. I know when to keep the party going hard. I also know when to chill things out to give everyone a break. As an editor, I understand rhythm and pace very well. 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 understand the techniques of lighting a person for a specific mood. I understand how camera placements, movements, and framing can evoke different emotions. I can take ideas that start in the brain and end on the screen.
