Hi, my name is Richard Yagutilov, and I love helping people and brands tell their story using photography and film.
I started out in the film industry working on Hollywood films in various positions to really get a sense of how they do it on the big sets. I spent seven years working and learning how to play at that level. There were the ups and downs of the industry, the the volatility on set and the egos. It wasn’t all fun and glamour – especially dealing with the stress energy on set.
Through these experiences, I came to understand how to produce projects my way, stress free, fun, and in a collaborative spirit that empowers everyone involved. This way things flow smoothly, everyone has fun in the process and there is always a chill atmosphere on my sets. In fact, one of the most common complements I receive from people is how much fun they had and how easy everything was for them.
I’ve been very fortunate to work with some great artists and brands like Lady Gaga, Akon, Universal Music, Sony, Nike to name a few and because of my experience working on Hollywood sets where a large, concerted team effort was necessary it stretched and developed me as an artist and team leader such that I now bring that attention to detail and professional work ethic into every project large and small.
There is no project too big or small for my team and I. I would love to hear about your project and have the opportunity to tell your story!
