Photography

Grow your business with professional photographs!

In an age where potential customers don’t have the time or inclination to read large volumes of text about your products and services; the saying  ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ has never mattered more. Let Mooma Media work with you to make every one of those thousand words understood.

Take your organisation’s marketing material to the next level with professional photographs, produced to the highest standards and offered in a format to suit your needs. Regardless of whether you intend to use your finished images in promotional leaflets, on your website or for wall displays on your premises, there’s every reason to ensure that the photos you use are as engaging as possible.

If you would like to know more about the commercial photography services Momma Media offers, check out the photography page on this website. If you want to discuss your specific photographic needs, use my contact page. 

Video Production

Showcase your business with video!

The digital revolution has changed the way we consume information forever. It’s no coincidence that promotional video has grown in popularity to become one of the most powerful marketing tools used by businesses, charities, schools and just about any other type of enterprise. Whether embedded on your website, shared on social media platforms, or simply distributed via links in an email; video is an undeniably effective way to promote your brand in the modern market place.

Until recently, professional video production was an expensive, disruptive and exclusive method of marketing. However, technological advances and lower production costs mean that high quality, engaging video is now a practical proposition for smaller businesses marketing themselves online. Mooma Media aims to bring high quality video production within the budget of almost any small enterprise.

While marketing videos can include a vast range of styles, production techniques and content; conveying your unique selling points effectively, is far more important than indulgent visual effects and pretentious camera work. For this reason, I will always take time to work with you in planning the production, so that together, we can tell your business’s story in the most effective way.

Whatever your business, Stourbridge based Mooma Media can bring effective, high quality commercial video to your promotional armoury and help you benefit from the most powerful communication tool yet devised.

Find out more about how Mooma Media’s promotional video production could benefit you. Alternatively, if you already have a marketing video project in mind, leave a message on our contact page and I will get in touch to discuss your needs.

Event Filming

Add value to your event with film!

Whether you’re holding a conference, seminar, charity fundraiser, school presentation, performance or festival, Mooma Media can produce an engaging documentary or marketing video that showcases your event to maximum effect.

Working closely with you or your event planner prior to the event; I will listen carefully to your goals, ideas and requirements, in order to deliver a finished video product that meets your vision and adds value to your event and your organisation.

Find out more about event filming; or, if you would like Mooma Media to film your event please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Live Streaming

Expand your audience with live streaming!

Add value to your event with live streaming to YouTube, FaceBook, Periscope and other social media or video hosting platforms.

Product launches, seminars, celebrations, performances and other live events can see audiences expand from 10s or 100s to 1000s and beyond, with the benefit of live web streaming. Broadcasting your key events to the world has never been more accessible, cost effective or beneficial in a marketplace built increasingly upon the connectivity of the internet.

Mooma Media provides the expertise and hardware to make every second of your live web event count, capturing the action with two or more cameras, and integrating your slideshow presentation directly into the live stream if required. Branding graphics and other pre-existing media assets can also be included in your live stream by arrangement.

To find out more about how multi camera live streaming works, visit the Mooma Live Streaming page. If you have an event which you would like to be live streamed, please feel free to contact me to discuss your needs.

Web Design, Hosting & Support

Take your local business to the world!

In the digital age, almost no enterprise can escape the need for a suitable web presence. Whether a single page, containing only basic service and contact information, or a fully functional e-commerce site, chances are  your business or organisation will need a home in cyberspace.

Mooma Media designs and builds engaging websites using the world’s most popular and comprehensive Content Management System, WordPress. This ensures that your website can adapt, with your business, to changing circumstances. Using only the most versatile WordPress themes ensures that I build fully responsive websites, that function well and look great on any device.

Because Mooma offers a complete range of digital media services, your site can be designed, built, hosted and populated with professionally produced media from a single source. This reduces issues that can result from coordinating multiple providers. Upon completion, I can either train a member of your team to manage the site, or provide you with an ongoing content management service, leaving you to do what you do best.

Find out more about my website services on the Mooma website design and hosting page. Alternatively, to discuss your company’s website needs please visit the contact page of this site.

Media in Education

Add value to your curriculum and enrichment programmes with media!

  • Do you or any of your school staff require training, specialist advice or first hand input into courses such as Film or Media Studies GCSE, or BTEC Creative Media Production?
  • Are you interested in setting up a media based activity as part of your extra curricular programme?
  • Are you holding a school event that you would like to be filmed or photographed?
  • Are you looking to purchase media production equipment and seeking advice?
  • Are you having problems with a particular media technology?
  • Do you need help managing your school website?

Prior to starting Mooma Media, I spent many years teaching photography and digital media, along with running a web-based educational TV project for more than five years. In addition, I managed internet communications in a large secondary school between 2012 and 2019. This experience has given me first hand understanding of schools, their budgetary constraints and their likely (realistic) requirements for media production equipment and methods. Mooma offers special rates to the education sector.
