My name is Jared Phelps. Video is everything I know. I have been doing this for over 9 years as of 2020.
My story starts back when I was young, I always had an interest in cameras and video. Asking for a camera every Christmas quickly became the norm. Fast forward a few years to 2012 where I was in my first youtube video.
Shooting and watching my buddy edit the film gave me immense joy! I began editing and shooting video with him for the next 7 years. I became obsessed with perfecting my craft, many hours spent on youtube watching tutorials.
After graduating high school I moved into the blue-collar work world. Working at places like a plant nursery, construction, and mobile home maintenance. About 1 year into my maintenance job I was getting miserable, I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. Until July of 2018 when I got my first paid client!
I was contacted to shoot a friend's wedding, which I had no idea how to do! One very amateur video later, I was handed $100 and my head exploded! The lightbulb came on and I was in awe at the idea of making money doing what I passionately love!
2 weeks later I quit my job and began this insane adventure! I was living with my grandparents at the time until I got married to my amazing wife! I was terrified as working for yourself holds no promise of pay.
2 years later here I am. Amazed that I'm still thriving and learning what I love to do! Surprising many people as well with where I've ended up. I've been to vegas, Turks and Caicos and even Australia doing videography for amazing people!
I love this job and blessed to able to do it every day. I strive to be excellent in all of my work. The reason I chose to name my company "LensofJared" is because this is my work. I didn't want to hide behind a production company logo. When you hire me you know exactly whom you are working with. I and my team are passionate about this and will do everything to make it memorable for years to come!
We have the ability to create a compelling promo for your social media. We can capture the story of your most important days for your loved ones to cherish for years to come. We excel in shooting live fast-paced events for your brand while keeping a creative and professional look.
Give me and my team a chance and you won't regret it.
