Christopher Short, Owner of Airdale Productions

I started Airdale Productions because first and foremost I like to tell stories. There’s something about the process of creating a memorable video that makes people really feel and connect to your message that I’ve always loved.

While we spend the majority of our time at Airdale producing corporate videos, we’ve also created commercials, product videos, employee training videos and medical and educational videos. We also have experience in conducting media training, producing PSAs for non-profit organizations, and I’m especially proud of the work we’ve done to support our military. Being a former Navy Aircrewman and Operations Manager, I am always honored when I can partner with the great men and women who serve in our armed forces. Whether it’s photographing a retirement ceremony or helping to produce a military appreciation video that’s shown to thousands of Padre’s fans, Airdale is proud to work with our military.

Even before joining the Navy, my passion for video and photography started when I was in high school. Once I picked up my father’s old Pentax film camera, I knew I could explore the world and tell compelling stories through a lens. My passion for video has led me to a nearly 15 year career in television news. I have had the opportunity to cover news across the country and I’m honored to say that I’ve even won four Emmys while doing it. My news experience includes breaking news, wildfires, crime, extreme drought, brutal snowstorms, human interest stories, government and environmental issues.

Through all of this experience I’m able to bring a seasoned angle with the highest quality workmanship, combined with a fresh approach to telling your story or covering your event.

I currently live in Poway, California with my beautiful wife and daughter, my motorcycle, and a cat that allows me to photograph him, but only on his terms.
