Hire a veteran Colorado native to shoot for your film, video or television production

Background: Nick Teti, I'm a Colorado native with professional experience across the state, including in Boulder, it's surrounding areas, as well, nationally and traveling globally; dating to 1991 I have been in video, film, as well as television production. I started as a paid professional cameraman in Denver at ABC, for Tribune later, and Denver 8 television. I have a double major bachelors degree in video/film production and still photography with years of applied internships before my college graduation. Since then I have been a freelancer and have formed Mister Photon Media LLC to provide cameras crews for television, video and film specific productions. I'm a licensed business and carry liability + rental insurance as well. I shoot throughout the state and have an abundance of production experience in the city of Boulder, it's outlying areas, and can help you will all types of crew solutions in Colorado. I can be in the surrounding areas of Boulder within minutes, but also count on my experience nationally, as well globally, aside from my gear resources where needed. Aside from hiring a cameraman located in Boulder, I can provide local to services to it's other surrounding areas or many of the larger metro areas in less than an hour saving you cost, as well keeping schedule.

As a freelance cameraman I have won several peer recognition awards for my camera work and always deliver the needed footage, regardless of the type of client or assignment. I always have a new business reference each week from a new gig pleasing a client or can provide one from a repeat hiring client as well to you. Prior to my freelance work, I also shot several newscasts & shows that won various awards at Denver 8, Denver ABC News, Comcast, and Denver 2 Tribune (now a FOX affiliate channel).

Additional skills, proficiencies and services

Aside from my solid skills as a director of photography/cameraman (termed a DP, DOP, cameraman/woman or a cinematographer, photojournalist pending the production role), I have a strong background in producing, editing, data wrangling, directing and sound mixing/recording, making me a self reliant production professional able for any hiring client. I'm a valuable resource for any traveling client or client needing the self reliance and skills I have as a production professional, so if you don't have the budget to Colorado, relax and hire me in confidence knowing you'll get the footage you need. I also have a strong post production background with solid applied experience on transcoding, importing, encoding etc, able to convert footage as well across PC, or UNIX or MAC or to specific codec wrapper.

I also bring additional camera crew members to form film crews, HD or SD video crews, for ENG or for corporate video productions, or for other specific demand assignment.
