Steven's years of studio and location still shooting have given him a command of natural and artificial lighting, a cinematic eye for composition, and an ability to work with all types of people as well as problem-solve on the fly.

These qualities are all essential for directing motion, where the goal is to visualize an idea, organize an efficient production crew, and provide a film editor and producer with all the necessary footage for a successfully edited final video.

Whether it's media advertising, music videos, acting or fashion model show reels, or blog or other social media content for your business, Steven's skill as a storyteller through Photo Asylum Moving Pictures will allow him to tell *your story* using motion in a clear and concise, yet stylish and artistic way.

motion - video production
Photo Asylum Moving Pictures is NOT a video production company, but can provide the necessary resources for smaller, more limited motion projects. This would include pre-planning, casting, directorial, photography, audio recording, picture and sound editing, and final video publishing services.
