Jeff was excellent--very professional, and flexible both in terms of planning and on date of event. His communication was excellent. The event was a bar mitzvah, which is not always easy, and included a party in the evening. Jeff was on time, very polite, and the quality of his photos was excellent. The event required some discussions with various parties, and he was always responsive and quick to adapt to the needs and requirements of the various venues. I would highly recommend Jeff and would definitely use him for any local event that requires 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.

Tearsa took my first set of professional photos and was a pleasure to work with. She's outgoing and hilarious, which made me feel comfortable and at ease during the photo shoot. She's also a hard worker and diligent about getting the best shots possible. Thanks Tearsa!

We hired Dianne to film and produce a short documentary as well as some promotional video clips of the work our nonprofit, Honoring the Path of the Warrior (www.honoringthepath.org), does with veterans. This was an extremely important investment for us, and we are very happy with the results. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vdkTSZy0dU In general, my experience was that Dianne brings exceptional vision and professionalism to her projects. She is a very gifted communicator, cinematographer, editor, as well as a highly organized project director. Her attention to detail and positive attitude ensured success for everyone.

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!
