Communicate stories in a unique, authentic, and inspiring way through the use of digital media.
My name is Caleb Minear. My whole life I've loved art in all forms. On a family vacation when I was about 12, I got handed a DSLR and immediately fell in love with it. I then saved up for my own camera so I could shoot whenever I want. I remember always going over to my cousins' house for holidays, and we would spend the day making short films. We had no clue what we were doing, no clue what the plot was, but we just had fun creating stuff. I would always take the opportunity to capture what I saw, especially on family trips. I got in to graphic design after seeing a contest to design a new can for Arizona teas. I found a photoshop tutorial online that I liked. After finishing it I loved it and kept looking for more to play around with. Ever since I've been creating media, from weddings to brand identities.
If I'm not filming, I am probably taking landscape photographs. This is my favorite hobby. I love traveling and exploring new places, then making a photograph out of those experiences. I am currently exploring film photography and am always looking out for cool vintage cameras. I love finding old camera gear at thrift stores and saving them from being trashed. In my free time, I love watching comedy shows like Parks and Recreation and Arrested Development. I also love roasting and tasting coffee.
I currently work part time at Victory Life Church in Battle Creek, Michigan where I am in charge of all video and motion design, including weekly video announcement, special video projects, and live video production.
