We’d like to hear how we can best serve you. Contact us.
Some words others might use to describe Kyle Dreier: Tall. Responsible. Clever. Easy going. Analytical. Silly. Considerate. Diligent. Organized. Amusing. Semi-OCD. Critical. Inventive. Chocolate Lover. Aside from that, you may appreciate Kyle's strong art direction and design background which you've probably noticed in his photography. He's a thinker and is driven by creative challenges...and Mexican food.
It takes a team to create exceptional work, but you already knew that. Come play…er, uh…work with us. But first take a moment to learn a little about some of our team. Who knew work could be so fun?
Erica : : Studio Manager & Producer
Let's just say Erica is like Super Glue—she's holding everything together for us. She is studio manager, producer and designated Skittles aficionado. Ask her about her super cute friend Wilbur.
John : : Chief Assistant & Digital Tech
John is our "Yes Man." We say that in a good way. His can-do attitude and upbeat personality bring smiles to those around him. He assists on set and off—managing our post-production image workflow, you know, the important work with none of the glory.
Emily : : Marketing Wrangler
All smiles, no nonsense and loads of enthusiasm—that pretty much sums up Emily. She wears our marketing hat and wears it well...sometimes adding feathers and even gold sparkles. We like her and think you will, too. She's also a pet lover, which we approve of.
Rory : : First Assistant
It's not often that you get to sit down for lunch on a shoot and strike up a conversation about durian fruit…unless Rory's on set. What a great conversation starter he is. He's our mighty fine first assistant and resident musician.
You'll be happy to know we hire professional food stylists for all our productions. It is a must, and we are fortunate to have excellent food stylists to work with here in Nashville. On occasion we bring in food stylists from Atlanta, Birmingham or New York. A few factors determine which food stylist(s) will be best for your specific project.
What about props you ask? While we maintain a healthy (and ever growing) prop library here at the studio, there are some projects requiring additional prop wrangling. Once we learn more about the desires and expectations for your project we go into action pulling, renting, buying and sometimes building props for your production.
Again, the variables of your project will direct who we hire for each particular role. At the end of the day, working with a team—regardless of how they are assembled—makes for a smooth running production, and we all have quite a bit of fun along the way. You will, too.
We have been very fortunate to work with clients of all types and sizes—locally, regionally and nationally. Just to name a few…
Our studio is conveniently located just off Interstate 40 near downtown Nashville, Tennessee. For our out of town guests, we are only seven miles from Nashville International Airport (BNA), and 6 blocks from lower Broadway…in case you'd like to catch some live music or just do some people watching.

Flying in? You’ll find Nashville an easy city to navigate. We like to say it has “small town feel with big city amenities.” See "When in Nashville" below for more info about our airport, hotels, shopping and local eats.
Virtual Art Direction? When travel isn't conducive, you can sit at your computer and “be on set” remotely. Thanks to advanced photography technology and video conferencing, you can art direct in real time and stay right where you are on shoot day.
when in Nashville...
You may have many questions: where to stay, what to do when in town, where to get good coffee. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but we hope it will aid in making your visit to Nashville enjoyable and productive.
