About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I have a vision. Whether it's with how you're carpeting an office or capturing once-in-a-lifetime moments, I'm confident that I can come to you with a clearcut vision.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy the conversation between me and my clients. If you and I work together, trust I'm going to want you to know that I know what I'm doing. You're paying me to create - to use my imagination - which is shaky ground to blindly rely on, so I'm always talking about the process and how what I'm doing is going to bring the project across the finish line. Talking it out steadies the workflow and hammers home the bottom-line details, which frees me up to create.

    Travis brings a raw energy to any project he is involved with. If you need a videographer/editor who will add enthusiasm to your project... this is your guy! I would definitely recommend and hire Travis again!

    Highly recommend!
    Travis has great vision and really helped expand and improve our project. Tackled a new subject (sorority video) and nailed it. Very patient and knows exactly what needs to be done. It was a pleasure to have had him create our video!

    On time, professional, respectful. While the work I requested was relatively simple, it went very well. I will definitely use Travis again.

    Great job on the project I hired him for to be the videographer for an event for a high end client. Showed up to work on time, took great direction and brought ample equipment to get the job done. Went above and beyond what was needed.

    Travis is one of the most consummate video producers within the Chicago entertainment industry today. His Dubai/ Miami style of sharp cut/ editing techniques post production is what caught my eye. I have worked in media industry for over 10 years, so I immediately know a good thing when I see it. His work speaks for itself. I had limited time to search for an exceptional videographer for a pivotal event that I was co-organizing in the city. Travis was the first person on thumbtack that I spoke to and he immediately understood my vision and was very flexible and open to suggestions. He definitely went the extra mile the day of the event filming and on editing outdid himself there as well. An all round nice guy with a sharp attention to detail to his craft. I wish I had known of his superb video filming/ editing talent earlier for my previous events. This guy is going places. You should definitely try him out. He's worth it. Cheers.

    Travis donated his time to produce a highlight video of our annual Monster Food Truck Rally, one of our biggest fundraiser events every year. He showed up, filmed, got audio from our building tour and turned a great video around fast. We pumped to use this video in promoting our Summer 2015 rally!

    Travis was able to see my vision and captured everything on film in a very creative way. He communicated his ideas very clearly to me and provided wonderful guidance throughout the entire collaboration process. He was very respectful and accommodating of the environment in which I asked him to shoot, and his talent and experience was evident from the beginning. Travis was an overall pleasure to work with, and I look forward to working with him in the future. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for professional and high quality work.
