About Belanger Media Group

Belanger Media Group formed alongside Curtis Avison of Avison Entertainment in early 2000 to continue in the absence of SoundTrax Entertainment; a business that we worked for and learned from that closed after the owner abruptly moved out of Michigan. Curtis and I shared a business philosophy that included a commitment to punctuality, reliability and having fun! We absorbed all of the clients who were left with "no DJ" for their wedding reception or party. In the fall of 2003, I began DJ'n 3-5 nights a week in the 2nd floor nightclub at Taps Sports Bar in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. In late 2005 Ian moved to Sebring, FL. I immediately began to grow in FL by DJ'n and designing and managing all of the print media for the Hive Nightclub in Sebring, FL. Since then, I have been booked with weddings and projects all over Central Florida each weekend.

While DJ'n, by accident both Curtis and I started to fill a void at wedding receptions. Many bride and grooms were only contracting their photographer until the first dance and many important things happen until the special couple leaves. So, we started snapping photos to give to the client, and we were pretty good at it! A quarter-million photos later, and some investment in professional equipment, a second division began to emerge. My mission when snapping photos is exactly the same as DJ'n--your vision, my experience! I specialize in taking photos at events; concerts, weddings and and anything else that needs remembering.

A 'digital native' I am often called, I started designing Web pages less than five years after the Internet was born. A few years later, he attended Western Michigan University where he received his bachelors degree. I maintained work-flow for fourteen departments and projects which required various Web pages at the Division of Student Affairs. I use Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver.

I also beta test new products! Feel free to send me new stuff, and I will try it out, and tweet and write about it on Facebook.

If you need any type of work done we are located in central Florida just 90 minutes from Tampa, Orlando and West Palm Beach.
