Multimedia in Today’s Environment

It’s a fantastic time to better understand multimedia. All of these mediums (video, writing, audio and photography) play-out across the Web in everything people do at their computers or smart phones. From searching for a recommended place to travel or educating oneself on a particular product or company.

But it takes more than having a lukewarm presentation of multimedia to drive traffic online. That’s where experience in communications matters most.

With 25 years of experience working in the media, producing and developing content across a wide-range of topics, my strategy is simple: see the world from the eyes of the consumer, love what you do, and everything else will fall into place.

Mainhouse Creative specializes in Automotive and Outdoor related content for on- and off-line projects. Check out my multimedia work and drop me a line. I’d be happy to tell you more.

Studio or natural environments

I might work in studios when I’m photographing or filming a project. Sometimes for lighting purposes a studio is preferred, clients like that particular look. But the truth is I’d rather be outdoors using natural light to produce work. Studio work gets static, although, it’s often more economical than location shooting. I like the idea of shooting outdoor products for example in their natural environments, the backdrop enhances the end-results. Since many of my assignments require nothing less than dramatic outdoor themes, I’m often on the road scouting out future locations in my ‘86 VW Vanagon Westfalia, which doubles as my hotel room!

About Me

MY NAME IS Larry saavedra, co-founder

I’ll make this short: I concentrate my media efforts to all things automotive and dogs. That’s a long story for another day, for now I’ll take you back to where it all started.

I studied communications at California State University at Fullerton after graduating from Orange Coast College with a communications major. I worked at several newspapers in those early years, but nothing clicked until landing a role as a staff editor for a publisher of enthusiast magazines, car and truck publications to be specific.

I spent the next 25 years in publishing, where I wrote thousands of full-length stories, and photographed as many images that were published. Then it got exciting, and I co-created a cable TV show for SPIKE about the sport compact car culture, while producing another motorsports program on off-road for the Outdoor Channel.
