Poised Imagery Media Production Company is solely owned and managed by veterans of the US Military. Each area of production has finely tuned elements that can on their own meet your needs or be incorporated together to achieve what you are seeking.


We have been in business since 1994 expanding from a consulting firm to a full service media production agency. Achieving success of each specialty before adding the next to our selection of services.


Starting with his love of photography at 8, Maverick A. Bolen was winning awards and contests by the age of 16 and was published in architectural and landscaping magazines. He became interested in putting people into his work during his time in the Army. Leaving this as a hobby until getting out of the service at 21 where he began putting images on film and selling them under the name Poised Imagery (now Poised Imagery Meaningful Photography For You) and leaving Bolen Consulting as the parent company.


While still working on photography, but not quite making a living at it, he began supplementing his income with graphic and web design in 1996. Customers would routinely ask Maverick to include models into the photos placed on their web pages. Having to request models from other agencies became a drain on his time. With a partner who already owned an agency, he joined forces adding Poised Imagery Modeling and Promotional Talent Agency to his repertoire. When his partner retired he moved his agency to the Kansas City Metro.


Working on his advanced degree in 2001, he met his now business partner and fellow Veteran Tara L. Knighton. Bringing Tara in to assist in projects from time to time they built a tight friendship while Maverick continued increasing and improving his Consulting firm.


The year 2005 brought the biggest changes to Poised Imagery when a prominent international restaurant chain hired him to produce promotional videos and do photography for their popular calendar. This experience gave Maverick the drive to work in the blooming Kansas City film industry as an actor and the link he needed into working with local directors and writers. Officially bringing Tara into the agency as the Production Manager they began working on their first major film and Poised Imagery Media Production Company and Poised Imagery Motion Picture Films was formed bringing Poised Imagery to a full service film and media company.


Tara took a totally different path to the Film industry. She spent almost fifteen years in the Marines starting as a supply person and working all the way to a financial auditor of multiple million dollar accounts and platoon Sergeant. Tara excelled at organizing, money, supplies, people and events.


In 1999 when Tara left the Marine Corps, she moved to the Kansas City metro to raise her children. Even when not technically working Tara continued to organizing events for different reasons. At the same time she began pursuing a degree in Management Computer Information Systems at a local College. After receiving her 1st degrees in MCIS in 2001 she started working on her MBA.


Tara was sitting in the new Organizational Behavior and in walked Maverick. Noticing the US Army insignia on some of his apparel began a 18 year good-hearted battle of which military service is better and a wonderful friendship.


Tara and Maverick worked together on different projects and accounts for his consulting agency utilizing her organization skills. Usually to work with a project would start with the all telling call from Maverick asking…. “ We need to meet for coffee”.
