I hired Jeff to photographed our 50th wedding anniversary celebration of 63 people. He discussed the event several times in advance. He arrived 30 minutes before the posed fmaily pictures were takes to set identify scenic background at winery in Napa and set up proper lighting for the scene which was heavely backlit. He took posed pictures of 11 family members in various groupings, informal pictures at reception and during dinner and at Renewal of Weddding Vow ceremony. Picture were very good- sharp and good lighting. He composed 3 different albums for members of the family and was very quick in re-arranging the order of the pictures and making requested edit. . He was very professional to work with and guests enjoyed having him take their picture. He was very prompt ( within 3 days) in posting on his website a gallery of about 100 pictures of the event, which guests can review , download and order prints. He completed composing 3 different albums in 10 days. I was very pleased and recommend Jeff for event photography.

I hired Colin as a cinematographer to film a documentary on a noted SF Bay Area martial artist. Over the space of a two day shoot, he was able to provide us a wide variety of coverage that included intimate, close-up interview footage as well as dynamic action footage captured using his steadicam. Colin is both a gifted cinematographer and photographer who has a masterful understanding of composition and lighting. Colin's talent, professional demeanor and technical proficiency puts him at the very top of the list of photographer's I've worked with in my career. I give him my highest recommendation.

I've worked with Hervé Cohen several times and recommend him highly for film work. I came to know him first as a cinematographer, but he's also an accomplished editor with an impressive commercial portfolio and can generally pull all aspects of a project together. I crewed on a feature film for which he was director of photography, and saw first-hand his competence and creativity. The shoot, which lasted months, often required him to wrangle crews of different sizes and shift gears between many types of locations, on short notice. He was always cheerful and patient. More recently, Hervé filmed a performance of my play. He and his crew were efficient and discreet in a small venue, and he cut the resulting two-camera piece together very quickly. He can work solo but also comes with the resources of a production company that's made some beautiful documentaries. Lastly, he is nice to be around and his social graces (in both English and French) can smooth things over on a shoot, in sometimes stressful circumstances. Thumbs up!

I hired Angel to film an event I was hosting a few months back and I am so happy that I did! Not only was he incredibly sensitive of my needs, considerate, and an overall pleasure to have around throughout the event, but the video he put together was so unbelievably beautiful, I showed it off to my friends immediately and they are STILL talking about it! Angel is without a doubt the most the most talented and compassionate cinematographer I have ever had the great pleasure of employing. Will definitely hire again! Five Stars!
