My name is John Arender and I love to tell stories. Each and every person, day and moment have a unique and special story to tell. I call myself a visual storyteller because I like to tell stories through things that people can see with their own eyes. I’ve made it my goal to try and tell as many stories as possible, to the best of my ability, until the day I die.

 “You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”

–Erin Morgenstern

My favorite way to tell stories is through a camera lens. I love it so much that I started my own film company called Arender Films. While my business mainly focuses on videography, I frequently work with clients for photography needs as well.

Like both videography and photography, I taught myself the basics of graphic design and motion graphics. I am excited to continue working on my design skills and see what the future holds for them.
