Anyone can buy a camera (or smartphone) and click the shutter or hit the record button.

But it takes great lighting, composition and storytelling along with crystal clear audio to get your message across effectively. It takes a trained eye and a steady hand to help you put forth a truly professional image. A shaky, poorly-lit video captured on your phone will leave potential customers unimpressed, thinking that your business might be taking other shortcuts as well.



I am a versatile video marketing professional, bringing my experience as art director, creative director, photographer, filmmaker, audio designer and editor to every project. The perfect blend of skills to take your project from start to very successful finish. I can even write and produce targeted music for your company. Hear a sample here.


Well-equipped to make your project shine.

From cameras to lighting to audio gear to camera support systems, I own my equipment so I know it inside out and don't have to pass rental costs on to you. And, I know it will work every time without fail on your important shoot.




I love to deliver good work and good experiences. I also love to hear about it when a client has a great experience working with me. Here are a few of my favorite comments.

Jay captured some excellent footage for us! We called on him to work a job halfway across the country and not only did he deliver what we asked but he also captured additional shots we had not considered. Highly recommended.

We hired Jay to shoot a variety of construction equipment in several locations. Great job all around. The client was very comfortable with Jay. He worked hard all day (long days!) and kept a great, positive attitude throughout the several-day assignment..

for Hyundai Construction Equipment

For almost 20 years Vivid Gray has performed extensive graphic design, website concept development, video production, product photography and content writing for several high-tech companies I have been with. As the head of Product Management and Marketing at these various entities, I knew the value of having an effective branding/marketing design guru as a resource, and Jay has performed that role exceptionally well. His creative talent and keen eye for what will work in any situation, is unmatched. I would recommend, without any reservation, his breadth of services to any entity looking to standout with respect to their brand and expand their market reach as a result. The guy is simply amazing!

For six years, Jay handled the video editing and graphic design for my national TV series. Occasionally he also served as videographer and composer. During this period, the program won four national awards for excellence and attracted top-tier sponsors due, in part, to Jay's contributions. His creativity, technical skill, and speed are second to none. Just as important, he's a pleasure to work with. I recommend him for any media project.

Jay is great to work with!  We have hired him twice for two different video projects.  He is easy to work with and full of creative ideas.  After shooting, the turn around time through editing and delivery of the final product was very quick.  Thanks Jay!

Jay was very accommodating of our changing schedule (due to weather), as well as our last minute desire to capture some additional footage at another location.  He did an impressive job of capturing our drone launch and return and related footage of our airport project.
