Movie Making/

Event Filming


Let us bring your vision to life!  You have a story, but no equipment?  We can help bring those words on the pages to life.  We can also cover your event and get the energy and message you want to deliver.

Music Videos

Music Videos


Nowadays, music videos are a key element in bringing your music to a wider audience.  It is amazing how many people will get into a band because of how much they liked their music video(s).  Furthermore, the amount of coverage you can get with a music video is outstanding, touching audiences in ways you never thought of before with not just your music, but also your image.

Modeling/ Cosplay Photography


Cosplay Photography


It is important to obtain photos that represent you the way you want to be seen.  Let us help you deliver that message through professional images of yourself…or your character.  We specialize in not only taking good photos of you, but adding the elements and effects necessary to bring your cosplay to life!

Commercials/ Advertisements



Not just for television, but your online presence, as well!  Even a web designer can benefit greatly from having a commercial that they can put on Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, Google+, Instagram, and any other place that will draw customers in and give you the business you need to show others why they need to hire you and not the competition.

Demo Reel

Demo Reel


Nothing knocks a buyer’s or employer’s socks off like a great demo reel to show them of what you are made!  Having a demo reel always puts you at the top of the viewing list for anyone looking to hire you

What People Say


This is an incredible group to work with, especially Dustin. The quality of their work speaks for how passionate they are of their craft. Everything from basic cosplay photography to high-end video production with special effects, they are top-notch. Will work with them again!!


They are fantastic. I had a ton of fun shooting with them and got amazing pictures. Dustin gave me great instructions on how to stand and where to look. It helped me, especially since I'm normally at a loss when taking photos. Thank you so much retro hawk for the shoot!


Crisp, clean production with a touch of visionary style. Projects with RHP are highly sought after by performance artists in mid-Missouri because Dustin's filming, editing, and effects skills are top notch and shooting with him is always fun. Unless its a serious shot


They took some awesome pictures of us a few weeks ago In Columbia, KC. They turned out amazing! They were a great group to work with very willing to set up request shots and had a terrific spot picked out for the shoot. Definitely would recommend them and can't wait to do another shoot! Thanks again guys!
