Pirates Lane Video is located in Gloucester Massachusetts and since 2010 has provided video services throughout New England and beyond.

Jim is the principal videographer on all Pirates Lane Video projects and will oversee your project to completion.

Like many generations of my family before me, I was born and raised in Gloucester MA. I'm a married father of three amazing children.

I started learning the basics of how to shoot with manual film cameras many years ago. I got my first video camera in 1999, but didn't start really learning videography until 2004.Five years later I decided to start Pirates Lane Video. As luck would have it, that was the same year that the recession ended my day job (as a technician for the phone company), and running Pirates Lane Video soon became my full time job. I have now been filming weddings and other events ever since, and have filmed hundreds weddings, as well as corporate events, lectures, conferences, and music videos.

"The videography and sound are of the highest quality. Jim included all the content we wanted, plus much more. Jim was so unobtrusive (we and our guests didn't even know he was there), yet he caught everything from every angle. Jim's work far exceeded my expectations, and I will definitely use him again and highly recommend him to others!!" - Emily
