Dark to Light was forged from the belief that everyone has a story to tell and we want to help bring that story to light. We know the most powerful way to do that is to show rather than tell, and that’s why we create through visual mediums.
Founded in 2012 with the desire to see small business thrive in our small town, we continually strive to better ourselves and our work by pushing our boundaries creatively and technologically.
Armed with years of experience and motivated by our passion we get to tell the awesome stories of local businesses in the most authentic way and connect them with an equally passionate audience.

We believe very strongly in the power of a story.
Story. You are going to hear us say this word a lot but only because it is the foundation of our work and part of our core philosophy. The reason we love story so much is because it is
an amazingly powerful tool to connect with people.
One of the main challenges for businesses is connecting with people. Not just any people, loyal and passionate people. It’s not just simply how great a product is that gets people to camp for days awaiting the new iPhone, these people want to be part of something they believe in. This is the power of story, of expressing that deeper reason behind all that you do. That starts with clearly communicating what your business is all about; your story.
"I’ve been working with Tyler and Ben for about five years now, making short videos about every exhibition here at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. As someone who is not exactly comfortable on camera, I always feel at ease working with them and appreciate the fact that they are happy to shoot as many takes as I need to get things right. Most importantly, they do a phenomenal job of taking about 20 minutes of footage of me talking about an exhibition and distilling it down to the essential story. They are great cameramen and great editors. It’s a pleasure to work with both of them."
Curator of Visual Arts, The Center
"Dark to Light brought my website to life: katcannell.com They listened to what I wanted, worked with my budget and made it happen!! If you are looking for someone to take your ideas and visually bring them to life, while keeping up with current designs, then I highly recommend choosing them to create your web page!"
"Strong listening, prompt communications using thoughtful and professional guidance is what Tyler Hendricks brings to video production. I would recommend Tyler and Dark to Light Productions without hesitation for his photographic eye, attention to detail and graphic work."

“This was Blaine County Title’s first experience using a production company for any sort of advertising and I couldn’t have been happier with the professionalism, efficiency and quality of the team at Dark to Light. Super happy with the final product! We’ll definitely be using them again in the future!”
President/Partner, Blaine County Title
“We have partnered with Dark to Light since 2016 and could not be more pleased with their professionalism, skills, ease to work with and of course, the end product which is always top notch! I always wonder how we are going to top last year’s video and then BAM - they do it again. Because of Tyler and his team, we have been able to tell our story at the Senior Connection, raise more awareness and raise more funds to support our important mission, program and services. The Dark to Light team has become a big and important part of our family! We absolutely love them - personally and professionally!”
