Craig & Jillian met while simultaneously cooing over one of Garrett Brown's tracking systems on a soccer field at the '96 Summer Olympics. Craig was installing Brown's system and Jillian was working as Manager of Engineering and Operations for the broadcast division of the Olympic Committee. Soon thereafter, they co-founded Picture Factory which boasts their complimentary talents and shared interest in specialized camera systems. Years later and now based in the midwest, Picture Factory continues to grow and consistently contribute to the success of productions the world over.
Craig developed an interest in movies and music in his early elementary years. In high school he plunged headlong into production helping to set up and maintain a tv studio at his high school in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 1985, he's worked steadily in the film & video industry as a Cinematographer and specialty camera operator all over the world.
Craig is the creative and technical genius behind Picture Factory. His versatility and expertise afford him the opportunity to work in all media formats and his passion for innovative technology and moving shots can be seen in many award winning features, shorts, commercials, music videos, documentaries and tv programs. He has worked with Robert Altman, U2, Prince, Sammy Hagar, Target, Best Buy, Polaris, McDonalds, all major broadcast and cable networks as well as numerous sporting events, including ten Olympic Games, multiple X-Games, World Cups, Stanley Cups and Monday Night Football.
