  • Affordable Pricing.

    Employees are paid hourly, so we can’t negotiate / discount prices. Don’t worry though — we have some of the most competitive rates available.

  • Coverage Time.

    Please remember that coverage is time-based billing — from start-time to end-time. You may create multiple coverage times to save money.

  • Length of Footage.

    Please keep in mind that video will be shorter than coverage time — unless the event is non-stop, continuous (e.g., presentations, ceremonies, speeches).

  • Multiple Videographers.

    We have a team available for handling small to mid-sized video productions. If you require a crew larger than 5 team members, please contact us.

  • We can do Anything.

    No matter what you’re looking to do, we can handle it. Our video consultations page has additional info.
