LA GRANDE — Brent Clapp Media Services has gone from home-based business to storefront enterprise, taking up quarters at 2010 Island Ave.
Clapp, who has lived in La Grande the past 15 years, offers videoproduction and photography services. His credits include national television shows, and productions for local corporate clients. He has filmed shows for “Steve’s Outdoor Adventures,” an Outdoors Channel program hosted by Steve West of La Grande.
In addition to video production and photography, Clapp helps people convert old media to new media, such as video tape to DVD, or conversion of bulk photographs to digital files. Services also include video streaming of live events such as sporting events, weddings and funerals.
To celebrate his move to the Island Avenue location, Clapp plans a grand opening Friday. He will be offering free Valentine’s Day portraits to singles and small groups.
Before moving to La Grande, Clapp studied media production at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho, and taught videography and photography at that school.
He started his media services business in 2010, working out of his La Grande home. He said he is moving the business to the retail location in order to provide customers with better access to his services.
