VIDEO PRODUCER | PHOTOGRAPHER
We create videos, take photos, build websites and design graphics that move people. We're among the lucky few that get to do what we love and make a great living doing it.
Jeff Achen is owner and chief video producer/photographer at CallSign51. Jeff leads a number of highly skilled video and photo professionals on his team at CallSign51, depending on the project.
Jeff's work experience includes serving in the US Navy aboard the USS Thomas S. Gates (CG-51), getting his B.A. in Communication, then serving in Nepal as a Peace Corps Volunteer before returning to school for his M.A. in Communication. Since then he has worked in television, print and multimedia journalism and as a digital strategist learning and implementing marketing and fundraising plans.
Today, Jeff channels his creative energies and expertise into CallSign51, named for the hull designation of the ship on which he served in the Navy.
Jeff enjoys leading, managing and being part of teams on creative projects. And, he genuinely love to serve others. He has always been inclined to work for service organizations and those people and institutions dedicated to community building, peace studies and conflict management.
Jeff lives and works mainly from his home in Farmington, MN. He enjoys spending time with his wife Jenny and three children, Kaitlyn, Avery and Noah. If you're ever looking to strike up a casual conversation with him, ask him about Star Wars, Star Trek, 80s toys/movies, camera equipment, the outdoors, smooth jazz or my faith. Don't ask about politics. He promised his wife he wouldn't talk politics.

HOW CAN WE HELP?
Call signs are used by aircraft and ships, radio and TV stations, and video gamers to signal their identity. And, call signs like "Maverick," "Goose," or Luke Skywalker's "Red Five" are just plain cool.
At CallSign51, we help you signal your identity on the web and in the marketplace with the help of professional photos, video production and web design that doesn't look dated or cliché.
That doesn't mean we take ourselves too seriously. Everyone deserves a call sign.
