CBA Media Group began as a partnership between myself, Craig Amos (right), and longtime friend, Craig Blackmon. CBA bears the initials of both men. When Craig Blackmon departed to pursue other business ventures, for the sake of consistency and branding, I, Craig Amos, retained the name.
As a youngster I was transferred to River Oaks Vanguard Elementary, school for the gifted and talented, and won the Rodeo Art Competition as a 4th grader open to grades K-6. Later studied fine art at Texas Southern University and commercial art at The Art Institute of Houston.
I have spent my entire adult life working in some capacity in visual communications for various large corporations and know this industry very well. As an entrepreneur, my client roster includes an impressive list of industry giants, including CenterAmerica Property Trust, the largest owner of commercial shopping centers in Houston and #13 in the nation, and Tilson Home Corporation with satellite offices throughout the state of Texas. Probably more impressive, however, are the hundreds of startups and non-profit organizations too numerous to mention.
Today, I work with a select few talented photographers and writers whose ultimate goal is perfecting the fluid exchange between your story and the humans with whom you’re trying to connect.

YOU’RE IN LUCK: WE’RE SMALL!
When you pay a big company, you’re paying for expensive advertising, salaries, commissions, etc. When you hire us, you save 30-50% of those costs. We’re paid per project, so there are no salaries or commissions, and advertising? We do our own, which must be pretty good, since you found us.
