FAQ

How much does a video cost?

It all depends on what you’re looking to accomplish. Every project is different. Personally I have worked on projects that cost a couple hundred dollars, all the way to several thousand. Sometimes budgets are even larger depending on the team and scope of the project. Contact me with your ideas and vision, and we can work to fit it into your budget.

Do you work with all budgets?

As much as possible. I want every business out there to be able to take advantage of and leverage video to help them succeed. Contact me and we can chat about how I might be able to help you, even if you have a smaller budget. There is often a way.

You telephone area code is 250. I thought you were based in Vancouver?

I have lived and worked in Vancouver since 2011, however I started my business on Salt Spring Island where I grew up. Believe it or not this was my first phone number and I’ve kept it ever since. If you don’t have free Canada-wide calling. Feel free to email or text and we can figure out another option like Facetime Audio, Zoom, WhatsApp etc.

Do you only work in Vancouver?

While I live and predominantly work in Vancouver. I regularly travel to Vancouver Island, Northern BC, Alberta, Ontario and sometimes even internationally for work. I can be wherever you need me to be.

Have you ever filmed in other countries or unusual situations?

I have travelled extensively and I’m comfortable with a camera in a lot of situations. I’ve taken my cameras into the Arctic Circle in Norway, filmed at 13,000ft in the Swiss Alps, hung out of a helicopter, shot inside the Chernobyl exclusion zone in the Ukraine, and from a dog sled in -35 degree weather in Canada’s north.

I have both filmed and taken photographs in 20 countries.

Do you accept editing only contracts?

I do regularly accept editing contracts on their own. I have been using Adobe Premiere, as well as other Adobe products for 10+ years.

Do you accept camera operator only contracts?

Yes. A large portion of my day-to-day work is being hired by companies in other countries that need video filmed in Vancouver or BC. I then turn around footage to send back to their editors, usually on a same-day basis for quick turn arounds. My camera can always be tailored to the settings your editor needs. I’m happy to chat with your editor anytime to make this happen.
