Lovingly crafting videos in Southeast Portland

... a Portland videographer exploring new and noteworthy ideas in the world of video production in the Pacific Northwest and around the world.

My name is Abigail Spyker and I have worked with video for ten years, producing a variety of videos ranging from lifestyle documentaries to corporate promotional videos. I love working as a Portland videographer and photographer.

Topics include: filming techniques, video and motion graphics examples, design inspiration, opportunities for videographers, broadcast journalism, visual storytelling, data visualization, education, emerging technologies, and other compelling stories

 

Ah, the animated gif - videographer competition or a new trick to add to the bag?  More like an art form unto itself.
