DTX Media Core Staff and Crew

Anyone with the title “Lead Shooter or Lead Videographer” is fully capable of serving as a Director, AD, DP, DIT, Camera Op, LD (lighting), Key Grip, Audio Tech, PA, or all of the above. Our crew is hard working, professional, fun, and creative. We’re excited about video production and photography. Shown below are some of our most frequently used crew members, but we have a whole arsenal of talented media professionals ready to serve you.


Location – Dallas / Fort Worth, Texas

The ‘DTX’ in DTX Media stands for Dallas, Texas. Dallas / Forth Worth is where we call home. While we perform most our services in North Texas we also serve the entire state including: Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Midland / Odessa, the Panhandle and Rio Grande Valley, as well as most of Oklahoma. We most certainly travel as well, all over the US. It’s not uncommon for a client to have a conference in DFW such as Arlington, Plano or Frisco and love our quality of service so much that we they book us to travel for their next event. Because our crew is so efficient and multi-talented, some of our return clients have found that we are less expensive service in places like Los Angeles and New York even while traveling than hiring local video production companies in LA and NY. Our office is based in Dallas, TX while our editing suite is in Lewisville.

Mission Statement and Our Core Values

At DTX Media we passionately take care of our clients and others by working hard to create high-quality photography and video that we can be proud of.

Quality

dallas video production quality

We strive for quality in our work over anything else. Our portfolio speaks true to what we can and will do. Quality for us extends beyond a beautiful image or a camera resolution, but to the entire service from beginning to end. We care about all the content we put out and strive to always deliver work we can be proud to have our name attached to.

Passion

passion

At DTX Media, we genuinely enjoy what we do. We appreciate the art of photography and creating videos. We are truly grateful to work in an industry we love. Our passion shows in all aspects of our projects. We are a fun, confident, relaxed, and pleasant group to work with, while remaining extremely professional. Our crew works incredibly well together, and we make efforts to gather bi-annually to bond outside of assignments.

Hard Work

hard working dallas videographers

Our team is compiled of people who enjoy and thrive in this fast-paced industry. For us, there’s nothing worse than sitting around waiting for something to do. We work hard and enjoy our work. As our online reviews show, we’re always willing to go the extra mile to get the job done right.

Caring for Others

At DTX Media, we strive to treat others as we would like to be treated. Our care of others can be seen in our interaction with clients, but also in our personal projects, pro-bono, and our ’at-cost’ work for ministries and non-profits such as Africa Family Rescue, Gladney Center for Adoption, St. Jude’s Hospital and the Dallas Fallen Officers Foundation.

Prices and Rates

Along with creating the best content possible, our goal is to be as transparent, fair and competitive with our pricing as possible to earn your trust and repeat business. Unlike other companies who charge low to shoot and hold content hostage, we never practice ‘bait and switch’, which means you will always receive and have a right to the full resolution digital files and content that you paid for, with no additional costs. (The only exceptions being the price of a hard drive and shipping in some circumstances and a marginal archival fee for anything over a six months old). While these numbers should give you a great starting point on your budget, they do not account for any unknown factors and or requests. These prices are for work inside the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex, but we are happy to accommodate travel. We ask that you please contact us for an exact quote.
