“Jake was fantastic to work with while planning and shooting footage for over 6 hours at an elevated event in San Francisco, attended by over 2,700 guests.The footage came out great, and just as importantly, Jake was on point and quick to respond to questions throughout concept to completion. I would recommend getting in touch with Jake if you need a videographer / editor who will get the job done and deliver a good product on time.”

“My company uses Jake’s expertise to the great satisfaction of our customers. Jake is a honest individual with a passion for his work. We appreciate the opportunity to include his talent in our portfolio.”

“Jake is a highly skilled camera operator and editor. He is always up to date on the newest technology and puts 100% into every project he works on.”

“I’ve worked with Jake on many different projects over the years for several different companies. I fully recommend. He’s professional, discreet, is as creative or straightforward production oriented as the project requires, and he delivers on promise. I’ve used Jake for DP, 2nd Camera, Grip, Editing, Still Photography and Experimental Video services. He always over delivers and is attentive to the details.”

“Jake Durrett was our wedding photographer and we couldn’t have asked for a better result. We only gave him 3 weeks notices and he made him self available for a all day shoot at 3 locations. He was very reasonably priced, professional, listened to us about our style and what we were looking, and the photos look incredible!”

“We really enjoyed working with Jake. He delivered a finished product that exceeded our expectations. Jake’s attitude on  our shoot was upbeat and easygoing, and he made everyone feel very comfortable, but he was also highly organized, and professional both onsite and in the editing process. He came up with innovative solutions to the challenges that we encountered in our project, and was able to be flexible and adapt to changing conditions. I would not hesitate to recommend Jake to the most demanding of clients and look forward to working with him again.”

“Jake is not only a stellar multimedia specialist and videographer – he also has amazing skills when it comes to bringing groups together on screen. He was always a pleasure to work with and I would recommend his work to anyone interested in dealing with a kind and efficient professional.”
