The idea behind 'Beautiful Motion Pictures' came about in the search to brand myself as something recognizable but also at the same time instantly lets people know who and what I am about.

I have a passion for all things film, television and media but a special place for cinematography and video editing. The idea of having control of crafting a vision and bringing the idea to life, is what motivates me.

I am a fully equipped to cover almost any and all situations you may expect to encounter on a video shoot and with proper preparation, I am always ready. Besides crafting out a career working under my own banner of 'Beautiful Motion Pictures' I also have extensive experience working with other production and media agencies, being contracted in to complete jobs on an as needed basis. These companies include: ScreenCraft, GMRX Media, OB Group, Enigma Communications & Good Eye Deer

Steve is our go to guy. He loves what he does and it shows in the work he does for us. And it’s why we keep using him.
