At Wabi Sabi Visuals, we shy away from filters & obsessing over the perfect angle. Instead, we embrace imperfections to find the heartbeat in everything we create & help brands tell authentic stories. That’s what makes our work relatable. It comes through in our pre-production process, shooting styles, & even through our music choices. We’re a video & photography team based in Portland, Oregon, but we’ve told stories from Tokyo to the workshop of an artist. Collectively, we've tackled most aspects of film & photography. We’ve got a Swiss army knife skill set & we’re always adding to it.
So what is Wabi Sabi? It’s a Japanese philosophy of accepting—& embracing—the messiness of life. We’re not out to copy a Japanese aesthetic, but to apply what we can learn from Wabi Sabi to our own artistic approach. Our visuals show the world as it is, & defy the idea that everything beautiful has to come in a shiny red package. As creators, we all have to take risks to find what's real, raw, & relatable.
We get that collaboration is its own risk. When you choose to work with us, we’ll have open conversations to build the kind of trust it takes to make good work, & more importantly, to form good relationships. We believe in taking care of our clients & friends, & over the years we've created a creative family here in Portland. We’re connected with filmmakers, editors, animators, producers, & even directors so that we can call for reinforcement if we need to. With the powers of our network combined, we can bring any project to life.
