The company was founded by freelance video journalist and award-winning news photographer Texas Reeks in early 2018 at just age 18.

Tex has had a passion for news and television since before he can remember, he came across his first live news cross when he was 10-years-old, his first video made Seven News Perth when he was just 12-years of age.

While completing work experience in multiple news rooms, such as Nine News Perth, Mandurah Mail and worked with the Sunrise team at the Seven Network in Sydney, Tex picked up numerous news writing and television production skills.
