SALT Arts Documentation specializes in artistically-informed photography, videography, and promotion of the performing arts. SALT is for artists, by artists, with a special emphasis on promoting new works by those in the early stages of their careers or who have previously lacked access to documentation resources.
As the internet increases the possibilities for sharing our work with larger and more diverse audiences, it has become more and more important to ensure that we retain high-quality documentation of the artistic process, be it the planning stages, development and rehearsals, or the final performance. SALT strives to capture your process in a way that supports your artistic vision for the work, taking into account stylistic, conceptual, historical, and contextual considerations.
SALT is also available to shoot promotional videos for publicity of upcoming events, fundraising campaigns, grant applications, or for archival purposes.
