Swen Imagery is forged from extensive experience across the spectrum of visual media. Paul Swen, the founder, opened his first studio in Austin, Texas when films were still shot on film. Since that time, he has pushed the production team to keep moving and innovating. The special blend of technical prowess, engaged collaboration, and creativity comes from working around the globe with a vast array of clientele.

As the media has evolved so have we. That’s why we’ve been fortunate enough to be in the credits of major motion pictures, top tier TV commercials, corporate films, documentaries, and effective social media. We’re thankful our hard work and dedication have been rewarded by our peers through a vast array of awards in photography and motion pictures. We’re proud to have partnered with leading organizations from start-ups and non-profits to Fortune 100 companies.

Throughout the production process–from creation of concepts to media release–our clients get the best, in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Excellent communication with professional actors and real people bring each scene to life.

Our production team is prepared for any situation. So, shoots run smoothly and efficiently. This is why clients continually return. The melding of creativity and professionalism is a trademark of every shoot.
