About Jeff Lanctot
I am an experienced Commercial Photographer, Video and Motion Graphics Director, capable of leading teams to produce exceptional marketing content on deadline in high-volume, create-on-demand scenarios.
In addition to my core skills, I have also worked extensively in the film and video industry producing industrial, marketing, and training videos and films for a number of technology companies, and producing voiceover work for television, radio, and video games. I have produced and directed several commercials and music videos.
I have written more than 100 articles for the website Photography StackExchange on various topics having to do with studio photography and videography and am a Top 1% contributor to the site, having reached an estimated 1.1 million users over the last 8 years.
While I am a lifelong resident of Washington State, I have never personally met Bigfoot, ridden a Orca whale, or had dinner with Bill Gates. However, I did have lunch with Sir Mix-a-Lot once.
