Our Team

Dave Martinson

Founder & President

Always having a passion for photography, Dave began his career as a news video/film photographer in Charlotte NC. After graduating with a BA in Business Administration from UNC Charlotte’s Belk College of Business in 1977, he pursued his passion with the nation’s largest portrait photography company. He served in operations, research, marketing, and advertising. In 1985 he co-founded CVS, Inc. which was a video transfer company serving a national market through Sears. Later his business partner Ed Tepera developed the very first computer generated photo-to-video montage. The company put their new invention in 45 Wal-Mart stores primarily in the southeast. It was there when he discovered the powerful emotional response people have seeing their photos come to life on their TV and has focused on this niche ever since. This business was sold in 1995 to American Studios. He bought back the assets and trademarks and started PhotoVision Inc. in April 1997. Since then Dave has guided the company through the never-ending technological changes in photography and video that have occurred, and has created new markets and products offered to groups and individuals through a variety of industries. He has been fortunate to find creative and intelligent talent, who share the same vision and are the backbone of his passion….saving and creating keepsake memories for families.

Dave enjoys his family and friends, golf, the Panthers, Hornets, and travel. He and his wife of 44 years have been blessed with two children and now have two grandchildren.

John O’Malley

VP of Group Sales

John started his sales career at PhotoVision back in January of 1999, after being in outside sales all of his life. A trip to St. Maarten in the summer of 1998 with his wife Lee and good friends Dave & Wrenn Martinson set the stage for what is now called “Group Travel Videos”.

As an avid photographer, Dave was taking pictures during their vacation. The idea of “creating a video” of their trip was brought up one day while sunning on the beaches. Martinson owned a video production business and had developed a program of using still pictures to make videos with music and special effects. They gathered their favorite 150 printed pictures, dropped in some island music, and the first Group Travel Video was created. When watching it, it was if they were back in the islands relieving their vacation all over again and it literally brought tears to their eyes. Lights were flashing with ideas as they felt this would be a perfect product for the travel industry.

In late 1998, Dave met with a local travel agency and offered to do a test for a 6th grade class traveling to DC. A few weeks later, a call from the agent confirmed their hunch as both the teacher & agent flipped when seeing the finished product. John was on his way to FL for a national sales meeting when Dave called to share the good news. He’ll never forget the call when Dave said “we have something here” and offered him a sales job. Three weeks later John joined PhotoVision. “It was without question the best move I’ve ever made” and he has never looked back. It took a few months to develop the correct formula but they still remember the response they heard from tour operators after their first travel convention saying “what a fantastic idea”. They still hear those comments today 19 years later.

Say’s John..”follow your dreams, take chances, believe in what you do and you and the people around you will be successful” John has been married for 39 years to his wife Lee and they have 3 kids, Chris, Mark & Erin and granddaughter Camille. He enjoys following The Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Hornets, and of course trips to St. Maarten.

Marisa Abate

I have always been drawn to the creative field, as I am fascinated by the technique of animated movies and the video editing in documentaries. From a young age, I was either plastered to the screen watching a Disney film or drawing characters to fill my own fantasy world in my head. I decided to pursue the creative field professionally and graduated from UNC Charlotte with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Media in 2018. I came here as an intern, and after graduation I have started my career here. My passion for animations and video editing is fun, especially in creating keepsake memories that are priceless for our customers. Outside of work, I enjoy fiber arts, reading and collecting things, such as coins and stones.

Thank you for a picture that took a lifetime to create and can be enjoyed for a lifetime more.
