What is Mooma media?

My name is Simon Hastings and Mooma Media is the trading name for my content creation business. I provide photography, video production, event filming, and live streaming services. My target audience is businesses and non-commercial organisations in the West Midlands region. I started Mooma Media after many years of working part-time as a photographer and videographer. While doing this I was also teaching photography and media production in a local high school. My experience as a photographer and videographer dates back to the 1980s. This is when darkrooms prevailed and Umatic video cameras, the size of suitcases, walked the Earth. A while ago, I decided to leave the world of teaching behind forever and to spend the remaining years of my working life doing what I love. I aim to meet the needs of individuals, smaller businesses, charities, and local public sector organisations, in developing their online promotional media.

Who could benefit from Mooma’s content creation services?

Larger organisations have always been able to exploit the benefits of online promotion. Because their marketing budgets could afford the huge costs of professionally created, bespoke media products. However, smaller operations have, in many cases, been left behind in the online media revolution. Because they rely on either generic stock media or low-quality self-produced photos and videos. Mooma Media aims to help those smaller organisations to raise their game and to add value to their online marketing campaigns. Enabling them to tell their unique story through high-quality media while, at the same time, ensuring distinctiveness, authenticity, and integrity.

Why Mooma?

You may be wondering about the name, Mooma. It’s the very first discernible word that my son uttered, and it sort of stuck as a pet name for my wife. So,I guess he’s to blame. I could have wracked my brain trying to think of some clever play on words related to photography or video production. But instead I decided to go with something a little more personal, so Mooma Media it is.

What content creation services does Mooma Media provide?

My video services include corporate video & marketing video production, social media adverts, event filming, and live internet streaming.

My commercial photography services include onsite product photography, corporate portraits, and interiors, along with capturing reportage-style images of your business in action.

Mooma Media is based in Stourbridge, near Birmingham, in the West Midlands and offers commercial photography and video production services throughout the West Midlands region; including Birmingham and the Black Country (Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, and Wolverhampton), Herefordshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire.
