Very Long Media is the moniker of Joseph Long, who works with an eclectic range of collaborators, most frequently his brother Jonny Long, a U.S.-based photographer and aerial cinematographer. Now that I've introduced myself, I will stop referring to myself in the third person.

 

I currently divide my time amongst teaching photography and filmmaking, raising children with my lovely and mischievous wife on five mountaintop acres overlooking Portland, occasionally shooting stock footage for Fly View Aerial, writing and co-producing a short film in conjunction with FVA and The Film House (start shooting in September!), and co-launching a digital marketing agency aimed at the dental universe with (again!) Jonny Long and the rockstar business strategist Hiro Minami.

 

I also have a blog in which I write and share stories about being a dad. And music geek stuff.

I have spent a decade blurring the distinction between work and play; creating a palette of projects across disciplines that is linked by a love of creating, capturing, and collaging stories together photography, illustration, and film. I like to cheerfully dance back and forth across the divide separating imagination from reality; taking a documentary approach to much of my work that embraces flights of fancy, snippets of actuality, and swirls daydreams into reality and vice versa.

I love people, especially little ones who have kept their imaginations, curiosity, and sense of wonderment intact.

What do I do?


I have a lot of ideas about a lot of things, so if you're looking for a good conversation about music, 20th century history, 1980s basketball,

or how I can help you bring your ideas to life, then walkie-talkie me up for coffee and an initial conversation. See ya around.
