Name: Jordan Bunch
Title: Cinematographer and Photographer
Topic: "From Video Zero to Hero" on Sunday, February 25, 2018, from 9 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Years in business: 9
WPPI: How long have you been offering both photography and cinematography services?
Jordan Bunch: We started offering both photography and cinematography nearly six years ago.
WPPI: In your opinion, what’s the biggest benefit of offering clients both services?
JB: We are seeing that so many of our clients love the fact that we offer both photo and video for a number of reasons: First, it's easier to work with one vendor rather than two. Second, many of our couples have heard stories about photographers and videographers not always seeing eye-to-eye. When they hire us as a team, they know that the day will go smoothly and that there will be no issues between the photographer and videographer. We are all on the same team.
WPPI: How big is your team?
JB: Right now we have nine shooters working for us. This allows us to not only cover multiple weddings in one day, but also for each member of the team to focus exclusively on either photography or video. It much easier if you can stick to one rather than switching back and forth between the two.
WPPI: Are there any movies, books, songs or artworks that have inspired your work?
JB: I'm a sappy romantic at heart, so I'm constantly finding inspiration in music, art and film. Lately, I've found inspiration through these funny games I like to play with my clients. Rather than posing them, I'm putting them in situations where they play social games with each other. This leads to genuine expressions that I'm just absolutely loving!
