Once upon a time, in the heart of the Deep South, I spent my college career as a student by day and a tattoo artist by night before graduating from the University of Alabama and relocating to Seattle.

I work quickly, efficiently, and enthusiastically for a product that reflects equal parts creativity and professional execution.

Jordan-profile-pic
Im a laid back, open minded, professional lost boy. Im not in search of someone to show me the way, I prefer to stumble around until I find my footing and then run until my feet fall out from under me. I am a dedicated individual who thrives off of passion, adrenaline, beauty and creativity. I value people and relationships above all else. I live to share adventures, stories and do my best to stay focused on the moment.

 

This is for all you clients out there who have told me “well our guy has done this”.

“I’ve helied in Alaska, snowmobiled to the summit of an active volcano, dominated turf wars with opposing photographers, worked with some of the best athletes in the world, photographed a 20-foot Giant Pacific Octopus up close and personal in the wild, inspired college classrooms, traveled to the ‘end of the world’, swam inside a WWII sub destroyer, taken heli runs in the Andes backcountry, been scuba diving through mountain caverns 100 feet below the sea in Greece, narrowly escaped North West avalanches, danced ’til dawn in Argentina, eaten fried plantains in Santiago Chile, sh*^ my brains out in India and wiped out surfing 12-foot waves in Mexico. I’m not trying to say I’m in any way better then ‘your guy,’ but chances are I am.”

Snowboard Photographer
I am a photographer in fashion, beauty, editorial and lifestyle based in Seattle, WA. I also consult with professional photo labs and other commercial photographers/graphic designers on digital imaging technologies, particularly in color management. My work has been published and exhibited on four continents.

My photographs are reflections of my values: humanistic, elegant, thoughtful, romantic, minimalistic and technically rigorous. My fashion sensibility came from the streets of London and Hong Kong, where I lived and still maintain residences. I believe in collaborative, innovative, creative work while maintaining the traditional values of integrity, honor and respect in business and in life. Besides photography, I have held technical, managerial and executive positions in other fields.

Aside from photography, I am also an award-winning educator in engineering and entrepreneurship, I believe in the power of education, and mentor many local students from high schools and colleges in photography, science and math. Officially, I am on the board of the Tech Advisory Committee at the Seattle Central Community College. I am also an active mentor, coach and judge on entrepreneurship at the Foster Business School.

VIDEO SERVICES

From 30 second commercial spots to feature length films, video is perhaps the most powerful way to communicate with a modern audience. Video can be deeply impactful – it can move us, take us to another world, teach us or entertain us – all at once.

For all those reasons and more, Session 7 Media is passionate about film and video in all respects. In addition to being a full-service video production company, we are regularly involved in film festivals, film contests, special interest projects and the production of independent films and documentaries.

What We Do:

Perhaps a better question would be; what don’t we do? Session 7 Media thrives on a challenge and our portfolio speaks to our love of producing a range of media for different applications. This includes but is not limited to:

• Traditional commercial spots
• Product demonstration spots or “sizzles”
• Virtual property/location tours
• Virtual animation and 3D image rendering
• Music videos and photo shoots
• Editorials, interviews and supplementary content
• Digital marketing content for platforms such as YouTube, Facebook and other hosting platforms

How We Do It:

In addition to our customized step-by-step production method, Session 7 Media studios are equipped with the latest in digital editing technologies. This gives the client a stunning, cinema-grade product and gives us the excuse to always have new toys.

Every piece of media we create with the following at minimum:

• Professional, high-end video capture using professional-grade video and audio recording equipment
• Digital post-production editing using industry-standard software and technology
• Professional titling and motion graphics
• True color correction
• High quality HD video output in all industry standard platforms
• Customized DVD menus (when applicable)

Why Session 7 Media:

Creating Professional Quality Video:

Today’s marketplace is a challenging one, forcing companies large and small to rethink how they reach out to customers across traditional and emerging platforms. No matter the audience, a truly spectacular piece of media never fails to grab the attention of any demographic. Session 7 Media provides clients with the opportunity to marry stunning, cinema-grade imagery with well-defined messaging. We achieve these goals for our clients and ourselves not only by using the best available technology in our field but also with our uncompromising Session 7 Media aesthetic standards.

Training and Technical Expertise:

The staff at Session 7 Media is driven firstly by a passion for all things film and our interest in the medium doesn’t stop at commercial production. In our over 10 years of video production experience we have worked in many mediums, including independent short films, documentaries, music videos, editorials and much more. We are active supporters of our peer s and colleagues through organizations such as the Northwest Film Forum.

We can’t wait to make your ideas a reality. Whether it’s an entertaining video introduction for your next presentation or the music video for the title track of your debut album, we know we can produce a unique piece of media that will set you apart from the crowd.
