Rent our Gear

What better way to start a New Year than organizing our side of things to be able to share the love? So here we are, and we're happy to announce that we are now putting (a lot) of our gear available for rent.

We promise to give you great prices, but since we're just another small business in the Bay Area, we also require you to have proof of insurance to make sure any damage to our gear will be covered by you.

We don't ship our products. Our main office is located in Oakland, CA, and you can pick it up and deliver it here. But. We're awesome. We're hard creative workers like yourself, and we promise you'll love all our items as much as we do.

And what better way to help you get creative in 2016?

So go ahead. Check out what we currently have (new items added often), fill out the form with more details about your needs, and we'll live happily ever after!

Workshops

We are proud to announce that we are now offering a series of small, private, one-to-one workshops in our studios in Oakland. With over fifteen years of professional industry experience, and many credits in films, shorts, and published photographs, one of our favorite things to do is still to share everything we learn to other people. To you.

We've taught and mentored for many years at all kinds of places and countries, and now we're happy to go live with our online booking system to make it easy for you to choose a private workshop time with us.

Want to learn photography basics? Always wanted to venture into Adobe Lightroom to edit your photos, but always felt overwhelmed by the interface? How about editing those great videos you have collected over the years, and know nothing of what to do with them? Or color, how can you train your eye to see things in a different way, bringing your work to the next level?

We want to tailor this experience to you, so every workshop is different. When you sign up for a session, we'll email you asking about your goals and what you'd like to concentrate on. And anytime you sign for another workshop we'll make sure we keep teaching you more advanced skills allowing you to grow at your own pace.

It's not a class environment. This is a private and comfortable place to make sure you get the best tuition possible out of the class.

Let us know if you have any questions, but check out the page below for the latest info on current offered classes. There's always new classes to be offered, so sign up to our newsletter too for the latest and greatest!

Current Workshops

Hello Oakland

We are proud to announce that we just got the keys for our new office space in Oakland, right by the Fox Theater and the creative center of the Art Murmur Fridays.

We will have many more news to share soon regarding this new adventure, but for now, check out the photo below. The space has a ton of old furniture that is already being cleaned out, and we will start setting it up this coming week or two with our gear, computers, and some nice lighting...

And if you're interested in sharing it with us, why not shoot us an email? It's a big space, and we love creative company!

Once we're fully ready to fly, come say hi and grab a coffee with us.

Nature Shoot

Two of our favorite things are photographing people, and photographing nature. When we find opportunities to combine the two, we couldn't help but fall in love all over again with being inspired by the beautiful landscapes around us, that can easily be used to bring out the best in people.

We recently visited the Redwoods Regional Park in the Oakland hills, in California, and we were able to produce some pretty amazing portraits for one of our good friends.

Take a look, and send us a message if you are interested in getting portraits or headshots taken.
