MY STORY

Going Home Pictures was founded in 2003 with the intention of bringing social issues to light and producing meaningful and engaging content through the power and intimacy of documentary filmmaking and photography. I set out to produce media content geared toward making a positive change or contribution to society rather than solely entertaining it. With my creative roots grounded in NYC and over a decade of production work in Los Angeles, I returned back home to Texas in 2016 in search of that so evasive work-life balance. Work takes me all over the country (and then some), but I'm based in Fort Worth.

I’ve always had problems applying a simple label to my skillset. Simply put, I’m a storyteller. I take time to know a client, their challenges, wishes, concerns, victories & failures, and whatever else helps weave the threads of a story. I look at the project from many angles before diving in and, if necessary, start from scratch until it’s exactly what is needed. Whether the client is a well-established nonprofit or a startup company, there is still a story to tell and an authentic way to tell it. Maybe that’s through 360 VR video, or maybe it’s a web series for social media.

FEATURED

Content for our clients has been featured on HBO, HISTORY, CNN, NBC's TODAY Show, MSNBC, FOX news, CNBC, FOX Business, various local & regional affiliates and used by Major League Baseball, The Clinton Global Initiative, T-Mobile, USAA, and Dick Clark Productions. Photos have been featured in Vanity Fair, Outside, GQ, People, O, Fortune, Bright Ideas, Delta Sky, Philanthropy, On Wisconsin, Bal Harbour, Emergency Management, the LA Times, USA Today, the New York Post, a best-selling novel, and numerous other publications. 

Going Home Pictures has access to a core team of skilled, creative professionals when the project calls for them. Contact us to request samples of our corporate video work. Check out our Why page for some FAQs and a list of services. We’d be happy to put a proposal together for you.
