WILD ESSENCE CREATIVE
B Y A L Y A L E I G H A
Wild Essence Creative is a freelance photography / videography craft, born simply from my longtime hobby of the visual arts. The name I chose to represent this craft indicates the freedom & wildness of the spirit within each of us, made in the image and likeness of our Wild Creator. Honored to share in His creative work, I have always enjoyed pouring myself into the arts—I see art as a transcendental procuring goodness, truth & beauty which allows us to be lifted up to the heavens for a little while.
I do not claim to be a professional photographer / videographer, but I am equipped with an artistic eye and a decent camera. I have filmed and directed the filming of all of my original music videos as well as done the editing for most of them. You can see those videos here. Wild Essence Creative evolved after I was asked by several people to provide some videography or photography for their promotional needs.
I aim to offer an affordable alternative to photography / videography for your workplace, promotional materials, or small events.
Here are some examples of my work.

(Video #1) Northland Family Programs in Duluth, MN commissioned me for the filming & editing of this promotional video for their event on HUMANAE VITAE. (Video #2) I directed the filming for this original music video, instructing my camera person how to angle & manipulate the camera. I myself filmed all the clips in which I am not physically present on the screen and edited the video as well.
I AM ABLE TO PROVIDE…
Photography / Filming
My camera is a Canon Rebel T3i equipped with a zoom lens, which allows for a nice blurred background if desired.
I have a lapel microphone and Zoom Audio Recorder (used in Video #1 above, for reference)
I use a simple yet quality program for video editing (see both video examples above)
As I am a full-time Musician & Speaker, Wild Essence Creative is something I do intermittently, therefore I cannot schedule photography / videography events more than 3 weeks out.
