Hey, my name’s Jared Hutchinson but my friends call me Hutch. Growing up in Michigan, I am rooted in Midwest values and work ethic. I pride myself on giving my all to each project I work on. My overall goal in life is to create films, images, and designs that make a difference in people’s lives. I’m a photographer, cinematographer, and designer with a diverse aesthetic that ranges from dark and dramatic to light and minimalist. I’m highly influenced by cinema and take that into account when I approach each project, this leads me to shoot with a very cinematic/documentary style. This approach allows me to really capture people and products in a true and authentic way. Thanks for taking a look at my work, I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
Photography and cinematography have always been a passion of mine, but I was never sure if I could turn it into a full-time career. So, instead of following my heart I went with my brain and studied web design & development for three years. Once I had my degree I decided that it just was not really for me. It wasn’t due to a lack of skill or ability but more of lack of fulfillment, each day I found myself enjoying it less and less. I learned that I really do not enjoy sitting behind a desk for countless hours and while all this was going on I began to start taking more photos and creating more video and found I really enjoyed it.
Now, I am spending my time doing all I can to take photos and create videos that have a lasting effect on people lives. Whether it’s capturing a wedding or producing a short commercial, I greatly enjoy helping others tell their story.
