hello & welcome

My name is Dalton Shotwell,
Coeur d'Alene based videographer

I launched Shotwell Productions in 2008 in Tacoma, Washington, to provide high-quality video coverage to clients seeking a local videographer with a small working footprint. While there were (and are) ample video production companies available in the Puget Sound area, few offered a service that wasn’t cost-prohibitive to many smaller businesses and performance production companies in the area. So Shotwell Productions was created to fill this need in the region. 

Building on success in Tacoma and the Puget Sound region, Shotwell Productions is now located in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and is seeking to meet the video coverage needs of the greater inland Pacific Northwest. What started as a response to the needs of smaller performance venues and small businesses has grown to 12 years of serving a wide variety of needs for all kinds of local businesses, schools, dance studios, churches, real estate offices, manufacturing companies, historic preservationists, law firms, etc. From staged performances in dark theatres to aerial shots of boats in the water (FAA Part 107 Certified), Shotwell Productions can provide the videography needs of local businesses, organizations, and individuals of all kinds. 

Besides serving the video and photographic needs of local clients, I continue to collaborate with other film professionals in annual film festivals and have won numerous awards for best film and other festival achievements over the last 11 years. I am supported abundantly by my wife Jenny and overwhelmed by our relentlessly energetic children, Clark and Skye, and I can also occasionally be found snapping photos of landscapes and symmetry when nobody else is looking.

Thanks for stopping by Shotwell Productions. I take great pride in catering to the specific needs of each client and making sure that the desires expressed from the onset are more than met. If you have any questions at all or would like to set up a discussion about your project, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at dalton@shotwellproductions.com or call 253-226-7635.
