Successful projects start with great relationships. Here are the members of our team that you will get to know and trust when you work with us.

Mark Beatty

Mark is our fearless leader and the heart of Black Diamond. His vision of selfless service is the core of our work ethic. He could not have it any other way, because that’s just who Mark is. He has always been active in the community and has served on the Board of Directors for the Food Bank of the Rockies, President and Board Member of the Metro-Denver Crime Stoppers Program, and Board President for Positive Impact II. In 2003, he received the Police Chief’s Citizen Commendation award in Arvada, in recognition for his time, service and friendship to the community.

Mark has been married for 22 years, has two amazing sons, and is a graduate of Denver North High School. He is active in the Colorado high school sports world and loves helping kids improve their skills to realize their dreams.

Jason Casarez

Every team needs an obsessive creative. Jason is ours. He has a preoccupation with filmmaking and lives and breathes it all day, every day. Jason loves constructing videos intuitively and on the fly as well as the meticulous de-construction of them in the editing room.

A 2012 graduate of the Art Institute of Colorado, he understands filmmaking like a camera knows a lens. He shares his expertise in our Video Knowledge Center where he has created several short videos that take you through the basics of filming and video projects. You’ll enjoy them and you’ll love working with Jason.


Gary Stefanski

Gary is part of the creative brain of Black Diamond, bringing expert lighting, set design and editing to the picture. A graduate of the Art Institute of Colorado, he earned his Bachelor’s degree in advanced photography and film making in 2010.

Prior to joining us, he owned his own photography studio, was an active duty member in the United States Coast Guard, an EMT III, volunteer firefighter, and a card-carrying member of the Kodiak Island Search and Rescue team for the city of Kodiak, Alaska. (In other words, he really is the guy you want around when it all goes up in smoke.)

Gary is married and has a beautiful six year old daughter. When he’s not playing with cameras, he enjoys technical wall climbing, working out, volleyball and training for mud runs.
