What they say about us

I did a music video shoot at Motto. I am new to Winnipeg and so don’t know a lot of people here. When I got in touch with Motto, I told them that I needed a few models and certain props for my music video. They understood my requirements and where in constant touch with me, updating me on the status of my requests and taking my inputs. They were able to arrange everything on time. The props were in great condition and the models were really nice and played their roles in the video perfectly. The video will be on YouTube soon and I hope to be back at Motto to shoot more music videos.

Now this is what Winnipeg was missing. Downtown and Exchange have some beautiful spots for outdoor shooting. But all the photography studios have the same theme and limited options when it comes to backgrounds and backdrops. Motto has some beautiful themes, backdrops, and furniture. Ranging from clean to hiphop, from vintage to modern. And yes, they have white and green screen as well.
