"FYT gave us the look we wanted to help further our brand!"
At FYT we are storytellers, image makers, artists and cinematographers. With Christian’s background in studio work and Victoria's in visual journalism, we’ve come together to tell stories that are inspiring, cinematic and character-driven. Each project is crafted in collaboration with our clients from development throughout post-production. When we worked with Triple Thread Design and Apparel they said "FYT gave us the look we wanted to help further our brand." The content that we create is custom tailored to our clients to fit their needs.
Clients of FYT keep coming back. Karen McDonald of Wrapped in Love says, " I was so pleased with the initial shoot that I didn't hesitate to use them again for my next shoot, which I was just as happy with." Each time a client comes back they leave happy and as we develop a relationship the shoots get easier and more productive.
With clients that range from individuals to private corporations, each of our clients are unique and we treat them that way. FYT works with our clients with our tools to communicate brand values through unique digital experiences. And although all of them are different, one thing ties them together, that is they each have a story to tell - one that we want to share with compelling imagery.
FYT is a two person photo and video production company based out of the metro Detroit area. We use Canon cameras with a gorgeous collection of glass (photographer talk for lenses).
