“I highly recommend Tom- he’s very professional and got us all the shots we needed for our History Channel show on Kurt Cobain! It looked great. If you need a DP in Seattle, definitely reach out to Tom!”
Jeanette Moreland, Producer, A+E Networks
“I had a project in the Pacific Northwest that required a creative DP. I booked Tom based solely on the quality of his reel. Having never met him before the day of the shoot, I was thrilled that’d I’d clearly made the right choice. He brought an exceptional attitude and professionalism to the shoot. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and I’d trust him to handle projects of any scope in the future.”
Matthew Berinato, SR. Art Director, Sony Music
“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Tom and Coho Films. Not only were they flexible with availability given the last-minute request for video services, they thoroughly walked us through their process. They listened to our desired footage requests, made professional suggestions - they were thorough, professional, and kind – I would absolutely work with them again in the future!”
