I have worked with Arcas media on a number of projects over the years which have ranged from simple photo shoots to full scale photo / video / website development products. The Arcas team has always come prepared with a detailed plan prior to work which they stick to throughout the project. This ensures clear expectations that are consistently met and often exceeded.
Claire & Lawrence Crowfoot
We have worked closely with Arcas media for over 8 years now. Sam and Rob are incredibly skilled at what they do. They are creative visionaries who offer an unparalleled design and creation experience. We have worked with them on not only photoshoots and web design, but many branding projects from labels to packaging. The Arcas team are not only creative, they are professional, committed and dependable. We can't recommend Sam and Rob highly enough, and we look forward to working with them on many future projects.
The Green Point Project
Hiring Arcas to produce our documentary was a wonderful and inspiring experience. They were extremely creative and professional throughout the process from start to finish. Sam and Rob are a team that is easy to work and always bring great ideas to the forefront. Their talents and hard work brought our project in on time and on budget. We are very proud of the final product that Arcas Media created!
