Introduction: Inspired by a unique background in graphic design, visual effects and digital sculpting, photographer and artist, I discovered my true passion for imagery when I first gazed through the lens of a camera shortly after graduating, and went on to create my own signature pieces while also acting as director of photography for a diverse range of projects. Now, I create dramatic and dream-like images of realistic settings that combine a directors clever eye for composition with an imaginative approach to editing and processing that results in truly magnificent pieces. We are fully sponsored by top equipment companies such as Anton Bauer, Litepanels, Sachtler and SmallHD as well as have our own studio space with over 3000 SQ FT. No project is too small for us, bid with confidence!

Ruben was a wonderful videographer and he indeed captured great videos of my father's 80th birthday celebration on a private yacht! He was very responsive to my request and also was very flexible. We loved the videos that Ruben taped for us. He was very thoughtful and paid close attention to details the important moments to capture. He had great equipment and the quality of the videos were really clear and steady even on the water! He was very easy-going and strived to do his best to deliver the best videos for this very special life event of our family! He also delivered the videos to us very promptly. We're very grateful for his excellent service and highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for highly professional video/photo services with reasonable prices. We look forward to working with Ruben in the near future as well. Thank you very much for all your great efforts, Ruben!

Ruben was very professional, on time, and skilled at working with wedding parties and navigating the excitement of a busy party. When some equipment failed, Ruben kept shooting footage like a champ, which was important, and treated me and my bride very well. I am looking forward to seeing the final product!! UPDATE It has been a year and we have not received the final product. We received an edited version without any audio and Ruben has been very slow to respond to my emails. He said it was an encoding error and he would mail us a new copy ensuring it had audio, but that has not happened. We have mentioned taking legal action to get a refund, and that still hasn't gotten me and my wife our complete wedding video. I am dissatisfied!

I interviewed about 15 photographers to try to find the perfect one and I finally did! I had a lot of specific requests that I wanted photos and video footage of many special things so that my video can turn out the way I want it to and give a specific story,both Ruben and Omar jumped in no problem! They were always around me whenever I needed and it was fast and easy to get pictures with everyone and not waste time. I can not wait to are the final product! So far the preview pictures I have got have had emotion and been beautiful! Here is a picture of my husband and dad and probably one of my favorite photos ever now! I really suggest using these guys... I have already had 3 friends from the wedding ask for their contact information! They won't disappoint!

I was not sure what to expect because I have no media experience whatsoever. In fact, my first time ever holding a camcorder was two weeks before I reached out. Ruben responded and immediately began working. I sent him two videos from my church that I recorded. They were dark and the sound was echoing from the empty room. He cleaned them both up to look and sound absolutely amazing. He did it all in just a couple of days. I am so grateful. Greet find on thumbtack.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We offer the best prices in the bay area and we go above and beyond to give extra services. Our work is more important than price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When I get a new client I go over their needs and style preferences and budget. Next I have a shot list I usually use and I go over it with the client to make sure it works for them, or to see if they would like to add any additional shots. I also usually like to visit the venue or site that they will have me shooting at. I also like to coordinate with any other vendors the client may be using. I also make sure to stay in contact with clients on the days leading up to the event to make sure they do not have any additional questions or requests prior to their event.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attended Gnomon School of Visual Effects in North Hollywood.
