The proprietor of Mendocino Video, Nile Sprague, is also the primary cinematographer and director. He has a team of camera people, editors, still photographers and other professionals to support various projects.
Nile grew up traveling with his father, professional photographer Sean Sprague, watching him capture the emotions of people during both crucial and daily events in their lives. A keen observer, Nile developed his own unique talents in people photography and the ability to chronicle in pictures the moods and moments of a lifetime such as the exceptional day of one’s wedding, marriage, or other celebration.
Growing up on the Mendocino Coast Nile also understands the special lighting and locations of the area and how to capture them to the best advantage of his clients. Capturing imagery is both a lifestyle and a passion that comes naturally for him. Coupled with an amiable and non-intrusive nature, he is appreciated for bringing not only his talents but his easy-to-work-with manner.
Currently involved in both cinematography and photography, he has travelled extensively throughout the developing world, working for a variety of non-profit development organizations as both a writer and photographer. In addition to weddings, his experience includes food, architecture, products, landscapes, flora and fauna, macro-photography, and people.
Because of his wide range of experience, Nile is comfortable in any situation, and quick to adapt and creatively improvise when a challenge arrises.
His communication after the event has also been great. He has worked with my wife on the final edits and has been very patient. Very fun working with him. And his prices were very, very reasonable by Sebastopol standards.
