Our specialty is managing complexity. When you need a project done right, our team can help.
People make the world go round and people photography is one of my specialties. Photographing actors or getting great executive head shots, my ability to see and capture the very best part of you is a gift. My rapport makes you relaxed, makes your eyes light up and tension from a forced smile, go away. If you have ever wanted to treat yourself to special session of just you, let’s talk. If you’re into more creative art, we can collaborate on a boudoir photography session, fashion experience or just you in a relaxed environment. Many people looking to fill their social media profiles and influencers needing on-going content have selected me to be their brand photographer.
Corporate and Event Photography
When capturing a company’s history is part of its legacy, many companies choose my photography services for their corporate events. Photographing annual Sales meetings, Key note speakers, trade shows, awards ceremonies, graduations, board meetings and staff photography all fall under my corporate photography scope of work. When you only get the team together once a year, don’t trust it to cut price photographers fulfilling a side gig. Choose me because my corporate experience and portfolio of work speaks to the results. Want a photographer that can handle a crowd? A CEO? Or Company golf outing? I am you photographer.
Action Sports Photography
Sports photography and people in Action have been my calling card into other photography genres. Excellence at capturing people and products in action is a result of my lifetime pursuit of athletic endeavors. Knowing a sport, understanding game situation prepares me for the shot by allowing me to predict the next most likely impact moment. I have been fortunate to shoot for the NCAA, MLB, AMA Supercross, AMA Road racing, World Cup Mountain Bikes, World Championship Velo Drome, NHRA Drag racing, Off Road Racing and many regional and local events. If you are looking for photographic action sports coverage for a Team, an individual, an event or a product I want to be your guy.
Shooting for amazon, a corporate brochure, web site or all of the above. I photograph products in the studio where lighting is controlled or out in the field with products in use. In today’s e-commerce world so many product decisions are based on first impressions that photography is not the place you want to cut corners. It is your calling card to the consumer. Think about when you are shopping on Amazon, Alibaba or eBay. What moves you to buy one product over another? Even if both products are identical? The product photography that looks professional wins every time.
From high end restaurants and real estate to start up web stores, I will photograph your business or product in the best light and in the most efficient manor possible.
Professional management of your shoot is part of being a professional. I co-ordinate models, research locations, obtain permits, manage assistants, hire make-up and hair specialists and get props.
SEO / SEM
Getting email spam promising to get you on the front page of Google? Us too! We receive the very same emails you do and guess what, how are they going to deliver for you when they can’t even figure out how to NOT send emails to their competitors.
SEO is a true moving target. With search engine changing their ranking values all of the time, playing the SEO game takes a commitment of time to make it work. And it can work, with the right strategy, the right assessment of your website and a realistic budget.
A strategy for ranking your site is based on many things including the platform you are using or wish to use, your content, the competition for your key words, the age of your website (older is better) and the nature of your business (on-line store vs. service provider)
We don't only do video, but it's where we shine the brightest! Why? Because video requires a wider array of skillsets compared to any other type of project. Just one weak link in the chain shows in the final video, so it's a lot to get right! Not only do you need an effective marketing message, but you also need to deliver it in a way that holds your prospects' attention to the end.
Clutch Communications produces over 3,000 videos each year, and to do that we've built an elite team of technical experts at each stage of production, including copywriters, producers, directors, shooters, editors, audio techs, and animators.

Sales Process Support & Integration
Sales - this is what our agency was founded on. As former, in-the street- sales professionals we knew what clients wanted to know in order to make a buying decision and we knew what they needed to know to reinforce our product/service advantage and differentiate us from the competitors.
Everything we create falls under this umbrella. If its not trying to drive a reaction or add value to your brand, it doesn’t get created.
When a response is generated, what happens next? Does it go into your sales funnel? Is that customers information captured? Then what?
We will walk through process with you to develop or fine tune what you have so that your marketing budget doesn’t go to waste generating leads that fall through the crack.
Strategy & Messaging Development
At Clutch Communications, we always start with strategy. Ultimately, it's the words we use and the meanings we convey that lead prospects to make a purchase decision. That's why our team of strategists and copywriters is trained to adapt your sales message into a narrative structure you can use to create binge-worthy content in any context, including videos, your website copy, emails, conferences, social media, advertising and more!
Why narrative structure? Because it aligns with the sequence of thoughts people have during the sales process. Our brains are wired for story, so we lean into human psychology to hack attention spans and help prospects make purchase decisions before they speak with sales.
