Halski Studio are gifted creative partners with a rare combination of vision, and know how. I hired Halski Studio to produce our Weissman showcase video in 2013 and have continued to do so every year since. Our work together elevated our brand to heights I never imagined we could attain… Their enthusiasm and willingness to take chances is not only seen in the final product but has a positive influence on our entire team. If you get the chance to work with Halski Studio jump on it. I can’t wait to work with them again!Michael GardnerCreative Director, Weissman Designs for Dance
I can’t express enough how happy we at CEDIA have been with the projects Halski Studio have done for us. Beautifully shot, brilliantly edited, and always completed on-time and well within budget, their work is second to none. There’s another element to what they do, though: The Halski crew has the unique talent to make subjects who aren’t used to on-camera appearances feel at ease. They are as kind and patient as they are professional. Simply put, the process is as stellar as the results when team Halski is involved.Ed WenckContent Director, CEDIA
After hiring countless agencies, Mark and Halski Studio rose to the occasion as a boutique agency that delivers on their commitments and works hard to exceed expectations. Mark’s personal talents as a photographer are iconic. I have now hired Mark at three different organizations, that’s how much I think of Mark and Halski Studio.Seth BurgettEntrepreneur and Board Member, yurbuds Sport Earphones
