WHY CHOOSE US?

We're Hanna and Zach, a production team of just two.

Whether you're a travel company, platform, an interesting cafe or a hotel, searching for something that will make you stand out from the crowd, we're happy to help. We strive to create beautiful and engaging content that best fits your aesthetic and brand messaging. We're here to help you come up with a vision or ensure that the vision you have is met. 

We don’t have a warehouse full of equipment, which some might see as limiting - however we see it as a situation full of benefits. Thanks to that we produce photographs and films faster. We’re very flexible and there are no middle men involved, which means the production costs are smaller. We are two real people that understand the importance of human interactions - our works are genuine, full of emotions and have a touch of our unique style. We have professional knowledge and experience gained through our constant travels and education. We are all about engaging the audience and making them lost in the world that you want to take them to, at the same time always staying authentic.

Maria McKenzie, Lonely Planet (February 2018):

A big thumbs up to Hanna and Zach who have seamlessly pieced together a variety of shots to take us along on their hike. We particularly enjoy the change of pace throughout the video, which is complemented by sweeping drone shots of the forest, close-up details and first person footage of various points in the journey. The colour treatment of these shots not only ties everything together, but also gives the montage a warm, summery vibe.


Eliza Richman, GoAddis & GoKigali Tours Owner, Ethiopia & Rwanda (November 2017 & March 2018):

I will let their stunning work speak for itself. What is truly wonderful about working with Zach and Hanna is how much of a pleasure they are to work with. They're hardworking, thorough, dedicated and very professional. They are committed to getting you the best product they can. They are also a ton of fun to be around! I have worked with them in two separate countries and will continue to work with them for many years to come. Their work product blew us away. 

 

Maria McKenzie, Lonely Planet (November 2017):

Hanna and Zach’s video perfectly captures the magic of east Africa’s diverse and stunning landscape. Featuring a mixture of sweeping drone shots, first-person footage and timelapse, we feel as though we’ve been along for the adventure. Hat tip to them both for some top-notch editing skills.


Karen Fraser, The Brandy Bus Owner, Kenya (February 2018):

This was by far the best collaboration I have ever done with anyone. Hanna and Zach produced the most high quality pictures and videos for my bus, providing me with weeks worth of content for my own social media along with promoting my bus on their own page to thousands of followers. I cannot recommend working with these two lovely people enough. THANK YOU BOTH!


Rob Wood, Sieku Glamping Owner, Kenya (February 2018):

We were fortunate to collaborate with Hanna and Zach and this was without question the best collaboration we've had with anyone within the last one year of running our glamping business in Kenya - and we've had a load of requests for collaborations! It was a true collaboration with such beautifully crafted and thoughtful images and blogs that came out of it. Hanna and Zach are truly great people to work with and it was a joy from start to finish, and we are still in touch. They have set new standards for collaborations as far as we are concerned at Sieku Glamping. Go Handzaround!


Paul Krystall, Watamu Treehouse Owner, Kenya (December 2017 & February 2018):

Working with Hanna and Zach was great in every way. 
First and foremost, they are professional. They get a clear idea of what is needed and then they keep their primary goals in focus, as they are committed to delivering what they promise on time. As the project evolves, however, they are flexible enough to try new ideas and alternatives that come up - in order to strengthen the product. Photos and videos were delivered efficiently and they made sure we were happy.
Next, they know their job. There was a shot that was important to me and they walked to the beach every morning for 4 days in a row until they got that shot just right. They are creative with the camera, the ideas and in the editing phase. They have a great way of working with video where they can convey a whole message in just a few seconds of video. They were able to capture the essence of what we do in a way that others have not.
And they are a pleasure to to be with. The time spent with them was thoroughly enjoyable and it is amazing that we have such good videos out of a few days that were so much fun. I fully recommend Handzaround and hope to see them again soon.

 Molla Kassaw, Degosach Eco Lodge Owner, Ethiopia (November 2017):

We found Zach & Hanna from HandZaround when doing a search for photographers & filmmakers for our Eco lodge. We are so glad we found them! They were so incredibly professional and welcoming. They spent 3 days at the lodge shooting a short film about the story of the Eco lodge.  They also created most professional photographs. 
They were extremely welcoming, providing ideas... Every email and communication from HandZarround was so friendly and professional and they are just the loveliest couple! From the first meeting they really took the time to find out what we wanted and answer any questions we had. On location they made everyone feel completely at ease, they even went an extra mile to deliver more
than we wanted!
Everyone commented on how brilliant the photos and film were and I don't think we could have found anyone better! Thank you HandZaround for giving us such precious photos & film that we will treasure forever!


David Desta, Marketing Manager of Kuriftu Resort & Spa Bahir Dar (November 2017):

The video of our property is amazing and truly captures the beauty and essence of the property and Lake Tana. I thoroughly enjoyed viewing the Kuriftu Resort experience through the video.  The video quality and transitions/stitching are perfect. The site selection and scenery choices were also spot on. HandZaround's experience in showcasing hospitality properties is great.

Hanna and Zach are (...) very professional, patient and truly passionate in what they do that was shown to us through the quality of their product. Working with them was easy.

Diane & Mieke Bekaert, House Jane Owners, Cambodia (April 2017):

Hanna & Zach, such talented photographers and still so young! So blessed that they were the ones, who shot our House Jane… We have no words to describe how much we love our photos and movie and have received so many compliments on them too. They are very professional and truly passionate in what they do and that comes through in the quality of their work.
You guys are a perfect team and we wish you all the best for the future! Hopefully you let us and the world enjoy much of what may still come...

Finan Solomon, Marketing Manager of Intercontinental Addis Hotel, Ethiopia (November 2017):

It's been pleasure working with Hanna and Zach. With the eyes of true artists they captured video and photographs that were beautiful. We thank them for their service and wish them very best in their amazing journey around the world while they share their skills. All the very best from Intercontinental Addis Hotel!


Nguyễn Ngọc Hân, Thanh Kieu Resort Manager, Vietnam (May 2017):

Thank you so much for all of the fabulous pictures you took of our resort. We really appreciate that you photographed all the little details and efforts you put into capturing everything. You were working hard for 7 days at our hotel, and we got many pictures that show different aspects of our business. The video that you created is especially amazing. You are both so friendly, helpful, and you gave us some great memories of a beautiful day. Hope we can both cooperate again to update our visual library in the future when you come back to Viet Nam. We definitely recommend you to everyone, who has a resort, tour agency, a bar or a café…
Once again, many thanks for choosing our resort.

Emma Heath, 525 Bar Manager, Laos (March 2017):

When we asked HandZaround to create us a video that captured the beauty of Luang Prabang alongside the uniqueness of 525 we never could have imagined what a magical video the talented duo would make for us. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. We were so lucky to have you as part of the team at 525.


Sophov Phy, Manager of the Ring Boutique Hotel, Cambodia (April 2017):

This couple is amazing. It felt as if we were friends, but they worked in a professional way. All the work they have done here is awesome and we can't take our eyes off it. I like all the pictures and video, which they made for my business. Thank you for becoming our friends and thank you for your beautiful gift for our business. I really appreciate it. I'm so happy to be a part of your journey.


Kellen Johnson, MandaLao Owner, Laos (March 2017):

Working with HandZaround was one of the most easy going and professional experiences that I have had the pleasure of dealing with in my short time as a business owner. The crew from HandZaround definitely has their own style but I appreciated this because it is something that I lack. It may have been because of the business and the experience that we provide that made shooting and gathering content easy but more I think it speaks to the talent of these two young film producers and their ability work with and edit what they have. We invited them out to our elephant project only two times and this was enough for them to put together a short film that I am ecstatic about. I had the opportunity to see three other films that they put togeather for other business in the area, a bar and a cafe and I can say their work is consistent and professional. All this talk about their movies and I haven't even mentioned their photos! Their photos have helped me expand my social media presence exponentially and helped me build so much content and giving me ideas as to how I can expand on what I already had. Thank you so so much for the help!

Lay Eichenberger, Thongbay Owner, Laos (March 2017):

I can not find the correct words how to say it - the video is so great and beautiful. We never expected something beautiful like this so we all are very surprised. We would like to express our thanks for your really great job. The music is so great and matches the video perfectly! I can imagine that it took a lot of work to create a film like that. We truly appreciate your work for us. We are very, very happy to have such a great video about our Thongbay and we are sure that our guests will appreciate it as well.


Hang Nguyen, Koi Resort & SPA's Marketing and Communication Manager, Vietnam (May 2017):
 
I've met Zach & Hanna when working for KOI Resort & Spa Hoi An as the person in charge of Marketing & Communication for the resort. Zach & Hanna showed us a different perspective of KOI that we have never noticed before. This was a big surprise for us. If there is one word to describe their work, it should be 'passionate'.

William Bergmann, Hollywood Bed and Breakfast's Owner, USA (May 2017):

Hanna and Zach were consummate professionals and did exactly as they promised when the visited our B&B. I only wish I were a better speaker for their interview. In particular, I loved their still shots that we are now using on our expanded website. It's nice to work with friendly, competent pros like them.
