We specialize in photo + video for people and brands. What does that mean? You’re a person or a brand (or both) and we create content that you can use on your website, social media, and digital ads. We shoot everything. Literally. That looking off camera laughing headshot showing your audience how awesome your life is even if you might be secretly crying from stress on the inside — we do that. Product flatlays. Lifestyle shoots with the coolest kids. And videos. Everything from your Brand Trailer to snack-sized 15 second vertical videos for IG.


Pictures are better than words, so we’ll let them talk. Just remember, we do photo + video. And we’re nice.  


Being in business in this day and age is hard. Not only do you have to be good at your particular trade, you also have to make everyone online think you’re ballin' out of control. Needing to look cool is stressful. It can take you out of your rhythm and make you question if you’re good enough. We totally get it. We’re sensitive. Which is why we will help you love the process of creating content for your brand. Even if you’re a curmudgeon — we’ll still make you laugh at some point along the way.

Our stunning East Village Loft Studio Rental offers all the amenities in beautiful spaces for creative work.

Kirk was raised in metro Detroit on a steady diet of meat, potatoes and team sports. As a competitive athlete, he relied on his power and dominant attitude to excel. Years later, when he took up martial arts, he was tossed around a sweaty dojo for months by various women and children. This led to an exploration of ancient Eastern philosophies, which, in turn, led Kirk to Taiwan, where he taught English, studied martial arts and ate a lot of delicious and strange street food.

Today he owns Hale Productions in San Diego. He has traveled the world taking photos and making videos for hundreds of clients in different fields. Some of the most notable are lululemon, Chosen Foods, and Shutterfly. In his spare time he is training to be a legit horse whisperer in Ramona.


We really just need to know where you want the content to go. Is it for your website? If so, which pages? Is it for social media? Cool, how many days a week do you want to post? From there we can plan for your shoot (via phone or in person) and determine which package works best for you. Whether you need photo, video, or a combination of the two, we can make it happen.

First, we’ll move into planning — style guidelines, location scouting, model sourcing, etc.

Then, it’s production — our team will work like ninjas during the shoot to capture your hopes and dreams

Finally, there's editing — where we really earn our bread and butter. Photoshoots are edited within 3-5 days and videos are typically done within 10 days.



Hale Production Studios is a full-service photography, videography, and brand management company. We are located in East Village, San Diego, but are willing and able to follow you on whatever adventures you seek with a camera in hand.
