about-us

About Us

a Film & Video Production Company

With nearly 30 years of intrinsic experience in media and marketing, I bring an acquired capability in creative services, photojournalism and post production.

My expertise in adventure, exploration, defense, security and emergency services photography, video and editorial productions has rewarded me with some amazing adventures around the world. From Mt. Everest, to crossing the Mojave Desert on foot, filming a Medal of Honor recipient, filming tactical shooting maneuvers with United States Special Forces, to being the guest of honor on the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Richard Etheridge. Next to my service in the United States Marine Corps, these are among the experiences that I will cherish forever.

Photographing and videotaping people and places around the world has allowed  me to express my innate desire for creativity and storytelling.  My ability to build relationships and develop quality editorial ideas has taken me to over 80 Countries.

In addition to operating and maintaining top of the line 4K production cameras, DSLR cameras and related equipment, I’m proficient with Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Final Cut Pro, web-based content management systems and administration of social media tools and applications. I stay informed about the latest content trends and tools and utilize analytics to understand audience interests to develop content that drives engagement.

My  first responder background as a Firefighter/Paramedic combined with my military background adds to my passion for collaborating, conceptualizing and producing award winning content for broadcast, print, digital, social media platforms.  When I formed my company years ago the focus was on Indigenous Cultures, Hostile Territories and 3rd World Countries.  This has taken myself and my crew to places around the world and to places most have never seen in order to get that perfect “shot”!

Over the years, I have had to opportunity to meet with and work with some of the greatest creative production crews around the United States and proud to say that today, they still work within Allan R. Smith Productions as the need arises.
