As President of HVS Productions, Marty Zimmerman oversees the creative product of HVS, while at the same time serving as chief videographer of many of its projects.

Marty has served as principal photographer on several documentaries that have aired nationally. He has received numerous Emmy nominations citing his outstanding achievements in photography and seven projects on which he has worked have also received Emmy's.

Marty also utilizes his engineering expertise by maintaining all HVS cameras and equipment.

Marty began his career in 1976 shooting extensively with film at KPBS (PBS) in San Diego. Marty worked as a photographer at the NBC affiliate, KNSD in San Diego before moving to Salt Lake City to work with the NBC affiliate (KUTV-TV).

While at KUTV, Marty shot and edited news, feature reports and documentaries. He traveled extensively while working with the station's bureau in Washington D.C. It was during his career in Salt Lake City that Marty became accomplished at shooting video from helicopters--a move that eventually led him to earn his own commercial helicopter pilot's license.

Marty returned to San Diego and KNSD where he continued honing his camera skills, shooting news, features, investigative reports and engineering live broadcast segments from throughout San Diego.

In 1982 Marty left KCST to form his own video production company. Through HVS Productions, Marty has continued to shoot for networks and companies throughout the world. In 2005 he and HVS partnered with San Diego's Corporate Helicopters to build the cities first high definition gyro-stabilized aerial camera system, the Z-Cam. The system and Marty have been from Cabo San Lucas to Salt Lake City creating incredible HD aerial images ever since.
