Sony F55 at Colorado Monument


Big Pictures Media is a Denver, Colorado-based video production company specializing in award-winning production services for television, documentaries, businesses and brands.  

Big Pictures was founded in 1991 in Los Angeles by Tom Miller. Tom had graduated with a BA in Film and TV Production from the University of Florida School of Journalism in 1988, and began his career as a staff cameraman and writer for a production company in Chicago working on a thirteen-part documentary series for PBS called On the Waterways, narrated by Jason Robards. When the project was complete, Tom moved to LA to go freelance and begin building a client base – shooting for companies like Disney, Fox, and ESPN, as well as a number of commercial and corporate production companies, independent producers, and small businesses.

Tom moved Big Pictures to Colorado in 1993, and his wife Teri joined the team to help coordinate shoots and add her talents as a still photographer (TERI'S PORTFOLIO). Together they continued growing the client base, investing in equipment, and building a team of talented crew to work with. 

Today Big Pictures is the first call in the Denver area for networks, production companies, independent producers, and businesses large and small.  We specialize in beautiful lighting and compelling b-roll for documentaries, commercials, corporate productions, and high-end feature segments for programs airing on ESPN, National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, ABC News, NBC, The Oprah Winfrey Show, MTV, the History Channel, and more.  Over the years, projects they've helped create have garnered numerous accolades – including the Peabody Award, The Edward R. Murrow Award, the May Burton Award for Production Excellence, and multiple Telly Awards.

Our team includes a core group of incredibly talented people who help us achieve this mission, which we can expand or contract according to the needs of each project. We shoot locally, in the surrounding states, and anywhere in the world our clients send us!

Throughout this growth, our principles have remained the same:

  • Provide gorgeous footage and superior production services to our clients
  • Operate with the utmost honesty and integrity
  • Have fun doing it
  • Rinse & Repeat

Towards this end, we’ve traveled the world helping our clients tell great stories with moving media. Let us help you tell yours!
