You need video + photo to reach & engage people.
You don’t need a huge production to bring it all together.
“Don't settle for style. Succeed in substance.”
~ Wynton Marsalis
We’re Knack Video + Photo. We help you tell your story.
Our specialty is a documentary approach that brings authenticity, emotion and substance to the message you have to share. We interview, film and photograph your people and capture imagery of your space or setting, so that you can give the people you want to reach a look behind the curtain of your organization – to help them feel more connected to your cause, moved by your purpose, and called to action.
We work lean and make it easy. We give you finished videos and photos that look and feel amazing and that you will be so excited to share.
We work with:
purpose-driven businesses & organizations | non-profits from community-centered to arts-focused | other causes & campaigns
We help you tell your story. We know you don’t get in front of the camera every day. We get that. We guide the experience so it feels natural and easy, but we’re still shaping the details along the way so everyone looks and sounds their best.
Lead Video Producer
At a very early age, Max began using a video camera to document his friends and family, and he hasn’t stopped since. His super power is interviewing people, especially those who think they “are no good on camera,” and allowing for them to share their real, honest story naturally and organically. In the past 12+ years of his professional career, he has produced a wide range of video work, but nothing makes him as happy as producing documentaries and telling true stories of fascinating people.
CEO, Lead Photographer
In over 14 years as a photographer, Briana has worked in just about every genre of photography. Her favorite moments are when people who thought they weren’t photogenic (or that their office isn’t ‘fancy’ enough, or that their factory is too dirty to photograph) see their final images and say, ‘You made us look so good!’ She received her B.A. from the University of Dayton in 2009 and her M.A. in International and Comparative Policies from Wright State University in 2017, and loves nothing more than when her political interests get to intersect with her passion for storytelling.
For the past 15 years Zack has spent his production career in both Dayton and Los Angeles. Prior to Knack, he worked in TV stations, talent agencies, and Hollywood backlots, producing films, commercials, documentaries, and TV shows. Born and raised in Dayton, Zack has a strong connection to the community and an appreciation for the Buckeye state. Outside of work Zack is a diehard Bengals fan. Every year in September he wakes up and thinks to himself, “This is the year the Bengals are going to finally win the Super Bowl!”
Alli has enjoyed a wide range of the photography industry over the past 8 years, but she has found that capturing the stories of local professionals and entrepreneurs is where her passion lies. Whether the project be a small event, corporate headshots, brand break-out events or advertising, it is her ambition that clients leave from their photoshoot feeling relaxed and beyond satisfied with their final product. Alli loves to connect with others, learn about their mission, and help them feel confident in their photos.
After spending years as a food stylist, recipe developer, and recipe video producer in Atlanta, Brie decided to get behind the camera herself. She began her food photography career in 2020 and has since expanded into other genres, and enjoys working with the Knack team on all things photo and video. Brie is the newest member of the Knack team and is very excited about this new step in her career!
