Meet The Face Behind A1 Studios

A1 Studios - Month 1 - Blog Banner.jpg

I’m Cliff Gaines, the proud owner of A1 Studios.

Here’s my story which will help you get to know me better.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been intrigued by the concept of photography and I’ve loved taking pictures of people and places.

My love of photography led me to earn a degree in Visual Communications and Graphic Design. After graduating college I worked as a studio product photographer in Manhattan.

In 1980 I relocated to Honolulu, Hawaii where I launched A1 Studios, my video production business. For over fourteen years. I specialized in location wedding video and photographic productions. This included dozens of beautiful tropical locations, as well as arranging all aspects to create magical wedding celebrations.

After relocating to Arizona in 1994, I changed focus to cater to businesses exclusively, and develop content to market their products and services using professional hi-def digital video techniques.

The value of video presentations has long been recognized as a powerful tool to reach a broader audience. Using the latest equipment such as aerial drone video, photography and internet live streaming gives a business a stronger, more impressive online presence. I offer my clients all of the latest visual content options, as I have proven skills with all of these tools and techniques.

Moreover, I have unique creative skills that bring my clients’ visions to life. A1 Studios, works one-on-one with clients to create unique marketing tools that will enhance their image and improve their bottom line at affordable prices.

On a personal level, I enjoy my hobby of travel photography and video adventures. Given our busy schedules our surroundings are often taken for granted. My goal is to open people’s eyes to the beauty and wonder around them.
