Our Team


We know that the people we engage are paramount to the success of our business and so we carefully select folk who are passionate about their work. We are committed to employing and promoting an enthusiastic and talented staff so that our clients can really enjoy dealing with us.

We offer the full time services of personable and professional videographers, who are experienced in their field and totally dedicated to capturing your experience as it unfolds. While always being discreet and unobtrusive, they will enhance the ‘good company’ of your pursuit and will become an integral part of the adventure.

Where the videographer who filmed the event does not do the editing, our editors will work closely with him/her to ensure the true essence of your experience is accurately reproduced. Our editors are all highly experienced and will produce a creative and professional video, matched to your specific requests and needs.

Our key management and production personnel are:

tito-west1Tito West:

Videographer / Editor 

Tito West grew up in San Antonio, Texas, where he was heavily influenced by his ranching family.  His father’s family owned a cattle ranch for many years, and Tito grew up hearing stories of life on the ranch, and the many adventures his father had while traveling as a professional bull rider. It was stories like these that gave Tito his strong sense of adventure and wanderlust.  Having come from a long line of storytellers, it’s no surprise that Tito has chosen to pursue his passion of telling a good story.

Tito graduated from Texas Christian University in 2009 with a degree in Geology, and immediately moved to Africa, where he worked in several South African safari camps, and was employed as safari guide in Botswana.  He was introduced to, and became passionate about film and photography through his experiences in the safari industry.  Over the past 5 years, he has had the experience of working in South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, New Zealand, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
Tito is especially interested in Africa, and credits stories by authors such as Peter Beard and Robert Ruark for sparking his initial fascination with the continent and inspiring him to move there in 2009.  Tito knows first-hand the powerful ways in which stories can influence our lives, which is why he has such a strong passion for the art of visual storytelling through film and photography.

Having befriended our directors on African soil in 2009, Tito has joined the DCVP team to service some of our Northern Hemisphere projects. We are thrilled to have this talented film maker / photographer on board.
