Starting his company videotaping weddings and running the business out of a walk in closet in 1991. “So much has changed, back then, I was working on a Newtek Video Toaster running on a 33 MHz Commodore Amiga, and non linear editing was not available to the masses until 1995.”He further went on to say, “I have seen and used so many different technology’s and formats from S-VHS video to our current 4k RED ONE motion picture format”

Socially conscious, Del Padre is also a firm believer in doing well by doing good. Over the years, Del Padre Digital has donated tens-of-thousands of dollars in time, money and resources to support a large variety of charitable organizations.
Del Padre first set it roots in 1991 as Del Padre Video Productions, a wedding and event video company headed by Del Padre. As a young man growing up in the MTV era; Del Padre’s personal qualities and tireless work ethic were chiseled from a passion for the art of photography and an insatiable fascination with the music video’s of the time, especially the work of directors David Fincher and Mark Romanek. Del Padre studied new media and website design in 1994 and launched version 1.0 of delpadre.com over 16 years ago at the early stages of the Internet. A subtle name change evolved into Del Padre Visual Productions after Del Padre recognized and answered the emergent needs of the surrounding community to have a broad array of quality multimedia marketing services. After several years, Del Padre Visual Productions evolved into Del Padre Digital, Inc. in order to better define the growing multitude of diverse services that the company provides.
“In these 20 years, we have seen a lot of competitors come and go, but Del Padre Digital is still going strong,” says Del Padre. “The whole industry is suffering from the worldwide economic crisis” he continues, “but we are growing and expanding into new markets. We have become a truly integrated marketing agency, offering a diversified service spanning all aspects of production. The company has plans to target digital cinematography more aggressively in the coming year to the music industry offering music video production, Del Padre’s first true love.
