My Story

Thanks for looking at my portfolio and navigating your way over here to find out more about me!

I am a video producer, editor, motion graphics artist, and music composer/producer located in the Rochester, NY area (Macedon). Travel outside the western NY area is not a problem. I have been as far as China for projects, which is pretty much as far away as you can get without leaving the planet!

I have a 21′ x 21′ x 10′ studio that is perfect for interviews, small green screen projects, audio recording, and photo projects! It is acoustically treated with several wall mounted broadband sound absorption panels. I also have three 6′ x 4′ panels on wheels that can help to tame reflections.

I have worked with other talented producers and production companies as a director, shooter, editor, motion graphics artist, and music composer to create engaging content and have produced a ton of content on my own. In addition to creating content for others, I am also an instructor for TutsPlus.com and a presenter at Adobe Video World.

Sometimes I will get asked, “What do you do for fun?” This always makes me think for a few seconds because I don’t do “fun” things to take my mind off of work. I do life, and life is pretty fun! When I am not working, I play with my kids, play Battlefield 1, or build DIY projects (mostly super nerdy projects).

That’s just a little bit about me, but I would much rather get to know you and your story!

Note: I do not work as a photographer, but I can create top-shelf stills. To be honest, the word photographer has been reduced to a mammal with opposable thumbs that can point a camera and press a button. With said camera they print business cards and join the legions of “working” photogs. Yuk. As a wizard of technology and master of light, I consider myself to be of a different universe. I don’t want to disparage all photogs, as I have several friends who are high-end digital stills artists (real photographers). I have a site to showcase my photos because I am proud of them. Lighting is the key for making anything (stills, video, CGI) look great, and my photos illustrate that I can make light obey my commands. I have taught many advanced photography courses and created some great work in the process. If you would like to see for yourself, check out davidbodephoto.com.
