Jim was great to work with from the moment we meet, he was very professional and was a valued asset for our underwater pool shoot. We at Binary Pulse look forward to working with Jim again in the near future.

Jim did an awesome job managing the dive production for Edison's Reef Check project at Casino Point, Catalina Island! We'd highly recommend him for any underwater filming project, and will certainly use him again.

Jim did excellent work! He filmed multiple presentations for two of my projects, edited the video into short films, posted them to YouTube and created DVDs. He is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Jim to others.

Jim did some underwater video for us. He captured both nature shots and actions shots of our divers doing a reef survey. The footage was amazing. We discussed the shots we were looking for but then we left it all to him.
