Alyssa Weeks Joins Small Giants as Photo and Video Specialist
PHOENIX – Small Giants, LLC., a rapidly growing marketing firm in Phoenix and Denver announced today that Alyssa Weeks has joined the team as the photo and video specialist at the company’s two locations. In the new position, she will provide creative assistance within the drone/photography, videography and graphic design departments at Small Giants, serving clients in the commercial real estate, construction, architecture and engineering industries.
“After a six-month internship, Alyssa has truly found a place within our company culture,” said Small Giants President, Danielle Feroleto. “Her fresh take on composition, coupled with her extensive event videography and portrait experience, affords Small Giants the ability to confidently expand our offerings with recruiting and marketing videos, and testimonials.”
Alyssa became Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) trained during her internship, assisting in several drone shoots, and will eventually become Part 107 Certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which will allow Small Giants to more easily and legally gain access to airspace.
With a self-driven and self-taught passion for digitally capturing commercial real estate projects, events and people, Weeks specializes in visual storytelling. “Half of my love for photography and videography is making people with diverse personalities comfortable in front of the camera and forming relationships,” said Weeks. “The other half is capturing moments that no one saw or knew was happening.”
Weeks recently graduated with honors from Grand Canyon University with a Bachelor’s in Digital Design, and an emphasis in web design. Outside of work, Weeks enjoys researching the latest and greatest tech products, roller blading, biking on California beaches and hanging out with her husband and Golden Doodle puppy, Sedona.
