Zen Cohen

Greetings! I'm a video maker, photographer, designer and visual artist. I've worked in media production for over a decade with clients ranging from visual and performing artists, non-profits, tech start-ups as well as private clients. 

I recently moved to Iowa City, IA after living in the San Francisco Bay Area for eighteen years. I teach media art, film studies and graphic design at Coe College in Cedar Rapids. 

I am available to travel anywhere for photo/video shoots as well as remote work in design and video editing. If you would like to hear more about my services and rates, feel free to send me an email: I also offer 90 minute creative/media project consultations, over Zoom.


Let's work together.
