Hi there, my name is Jeff Shaw, I am a senior art director, designer and photographer. For over 15 years I have specialized in the art of communication, building web, print and digital campaigns for a wide array of clients. In my spare time, I teach and volunteer in my community.
As an art director and designer, one of the most enjoyable aspects of my job is my mentorship role. Being able to share my knowledge of industry standard software and emerging technologies keeps me energized and engaged. I’ve led teams of various sizes and do so with a laid back, patient style.
As a professional shooter, I have extensive experience on the set and on location. In addition to my role as a photographer, I have also directed both photography and video shoots. I am an experienced video shooter, editor, colour grading technician and special effects artist for both film and still images.

A typical day
Is there anything really typical about working in an agency? For those of us who have done it for years the answer is a big hell no!
For me, I’ve settled into a nice groove of management and getting in there and helping the team when needed.
Currently, my responsibilities are in the 80/10/10 range. 80% art direction & studio management, 10% design 10% photography.
- Art Direction
- Studio management
