My name is Jeff Adams, owner of Adams Video Productions based in Redding, CA.
Ever since I received my first camera (Kodak Pocket Instamatic) in 1972 I've had a love of all things visual. Several cameras and many years later, I received my degree in Media Technology. This gave me my first exposure to print media, studio and field production techniques, broadcast engineering, scripting, and audio mixing, to name a few. This, in the days when cameras were heavy, editing was analog, and computers weren't part of our everyday vocabulary.
In the early 1980's I did a year long internship with a local NBC affiliate working in news and commercial production with an emphasis on live remote broadcasts. Cameras were still heavy but computers were peeking around the corner. A hint of digital things to come.
Since then, I have worked for NBC, CBS and ABC network affiliates as well as public and community access television in various capacities such as Master Control Operator, Floor Director, Switcher, Camera Operator, and Editor, to name a few. Often times, as is true today, I would wear many hats.
I later received a second degree in Business Management. I had a dream of owning a production company. In 2006, I founded Adams Video Productions with one simple motto:
Bringing Creative Vision To Life™
Though many years have passed and technology is light years ahead of those "analog" days, there has always been a constant, my love of the creative process. The cameras and computers are my tools; it's the people I get to meet and work with that provide the inspiration. Everyone has creative vision...it's my job to bring that to life.
