Kim Pappas, Process, London
Within a couple of months of signing on with Production Paradise, I was contacted by Saatchi & Saatchi London for an ad campaign for one of their European clients. It was shot in location in Australia and I was hired as director and photographer. What made me decide to join was the remarkable calibre of photographers and directors showcased in Production Paradise. I could see what would be of value to prospective clients and how it would be used as a resource. Finally, a way for my work to be in front of a myriad of high-end creatives around the globe. With their many years of experience in our industry, I greatly value the company's insights and wisdom. I only wish I had signed up years ago…
Julie Renouf, Photographer, Melbourne
The diversity and the quality of your talents on your platform is rare. It’s added value with easy access to professionals in our field.
Katarina Pepichova, Calvin Klein, Amsterdam
Investing a significant amount of our marketing budget in Production Paradise paid off quickly. We've got big projects from Germany and China and requests from many international clients who found us through the Production Paradise Directory and Magazines.
Joaquín Martínez, CaixaPro, Mexico City
More visibility and more exposure = greater chances of being known and recognised. This formula does not fail. If you are a photography professional, Spotlight Awards is undoubtedly the best showcase.
Ernesto Castaldini, Wunderman Thompson, Buenos Aires
Spotlight Awards help both emerging and established photographers build their professional network on a global scale, connecting them to future opportunities. By appreciating the works of other photographers, one can also further improve their techniques at an international level. The juries have a wealth of experience and expertise from all over the world, any feedback or advice from them would surely be beneficial to photographers’ looking to find their unique voice through this universal medium.
Clara Ho, Creative Director, Grey, Hong Kong
It has been 10 years that I’m with Production Paradise. The time flies when you’re enjoying yourself! Before PP appeared on the scene I had regularly used many of the well-known print media for advertising my photography. Production Paradise absolutely saw the opportunities of taking everything online. They got it right from the start and, to my mind, are still the key player in the industry. I’ve always found the Production Paradise team to be incredibly helpful and accommodating. I often get asked by up and coming photographers if I think it is worth the investment. My answer is always yes, but with the proviso that you must be willing to stay the course and look at it as part of a long term marketing strategy. On a personal note, although I’ve never met Barbara Otero, through our many email and phone conversations, I feel like she is an old friend.
Barry Willis, Photographer, London
Through Production Paradise, you can really build and follow visual trends around the world. I’ve been using it for years.
Chiara Zennaro, Condé Nast - Glamour, Milan
There is no denying Production Paradise has been great for lead generation. We have landed some big projects as a result of our listing and the key is to simply be responsive when those inquiries come in. Customers always appreciate a fast response. And it’s a great way of staying current on other niche markets and again, in the end, it’s all about community and creating.
Rodney Evans, Central Studios, Shanghai
It’s been amazing having a global platform to get our work out there. Since joining we’ve been able to show more people that the UAE is a kickass production location and that we have the ability to produce world-class campaigns here. I can definitely say that we’ve had a few new exciting clients that have sent us briefs since joining who I don’t think would have ever heard of us without being members.
Jolianne Ray, GOOD Stills, Dubai
Production Paradise is a great platform for me to get my work out there. I sometimes don’t feature but that’s only when I’m too flat out with work to put a feature together. I always kick myself afterward as I realise I’ve missed out!
Karen Thomas, Photographer & Director, London
Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I'd book a job after being listed on Production Paradise for just one week! If this quick result is any indication, signing up with them is the best marketing decision I have made yet. Not only am I happy about booking a gig so quickly, I am also very impressed with the customer service. LA agent Scott and his team are extremely responsive, polite, and flexible. They went out of their way to make sure my listing showcased all my services and localities. I will continue to use Production Paradise's services and spread the word! Thank you Scott and team!
Raphye Alexius, 98 West Productions, Los Angeles
Having a constant presence on Production Paradise is essential if you want to be easily found by the right people. I’ve now landed two big advertising jobs by being featured in the regular Spotlight and Showcase magazines and also my Premium Listing. Google loves ProductionParadise.com! I come up first in all the searches and my site enjoys all the redirects from ProductionParadise.com.
Barry Makariou , Photographer, London
Production Paradise is such a well-respected forum for presenting your work. I keep coming back because I know it’s the best shop window out there to present my work to art buyers worldwide. I only needed one job for it to be worthwhile and it’s delivered a lot more than that.
Scott Grummett , Photographer & Director, London
I am happy to say that the very next day after THEY Produce signed up with Production Paradise, and we were launched on their site, I immediately received a call about helping produce a location shoot in Tofino, BC, for let’s just say a ‘very large fashion shoot’, for a ‘very large magazine’ publisher in New York City. When I asked the photo editor how she found my production company, she replied quite bluntly, “Oh, I only source through Production Paradise”. Nice work Production Paradise!
Gina Hole, THEY Produce, Vancouver
Participating the kind of awards, like Production Paradise’s absolutely boosts your profile. We, as creative directors and judges, can see things we might not have any chance to see otherwise, take notes and save images. The work of a photographer can be introduced to new contacts and important people in the industry, i.e their potential clients. Overall, I think this is great for all parties!
James Li, Senior CD, McCann, Shanghai
“Cara Anne Specker about Production Paradise”
Cara Anne Specker, Art Buyer - Havas Worldwide, Zurich
I have been using Production Paradise’s services for more than 5 years now and by being listed in the directory and featured in the Spotlight and Showcase magazines on a certain regular basis my online presence and marketing are strengthened and kept solid. Combining it with other online efforts and resources, Production Paradise proves as a formidable weapon.
Lyubomir Sergeev, Photographer, Sofia
I have been lucky enough to be accepted by Reload+Co agency in Sydney for my Australian based commercial work after my portfolio on Production Paradise was spotted by one of their producers. It’s funny to think I live down the street from that agency and it took an online presence and connection with Production Paradise to establish contact. I guess you never know the extent of a network until such relationships are created.
Frederic Courbet, Photographer, Sydney
Having collaborated with Production Paradise in the past, and in the light of Lisbon being more and more one of the most sought after locations for productions, I decided that Bomporto Hotels should partner up with Production Paradise, an important reference point for production companies. So far we are quite happy with the results, recently an Austrian production company booked our hotel for photo shoot through Production Paradise. We look forward to further invest into this partnership in the future.
Nicolas Roucos, Bomporto Hotels, Lisbon
Over the past 7 years we have used Production Paradise as a trusted resource to find talent, fixers and crew in places like the UK, Germany, China, Singapore, Brazil, Mexico and more. We know everyone on the directory is vetted and can handle our shoots which are normally complex and need to be to the highest standards. Not only that, PP has led to long standing relationships with international talent that we can now call friends.
Aleksandra Pollner, CAM + Partners, Los Angeles
The best part of Production Paradise is the new section Location Finder. As new members of Production Paradise, we don’t have a long track record with them yet, but we have already seen enquiries coming in for our locations which we posted on the site.
Guy Nockels, Namib Film, Windhoek
We are increasingly told by new clients that they found us though Production Paradise. It’s obviously a great way to be promoted and one that is genuinely trusted. Thank you Production Paradise!
Luke Jackson, Luke Jackson Production+Location, London
I totally use Production Paradise to find companies we want to work with.
Anna Toemp - Art Buyer, Triumph International, Munich
Production Paradise provides visibility on the SEO space and places us in front of customers at the right time.
Ivan, Red Creek, Buenos Aires
Production Paradise is an important platform for us, where we are able to get the best exposure worldwide. It is also an excellent platform to find the best service suppliers (3D artists, assistants, stylists, etc.). In addition, we use it to get inspired by other professionals within the industry.
Urs Wyss, Avocado, Zurich
So far it has been great exposure for us. So many creatives get a chance to see the work, if they find my approach appealing then via a link they can explore further and look at our website. Production Paradise is a great way for potential clients to search out and find a photographer that fits their needs.
Thomas Hart Shelby, Photographer, New York
Production Paradise has given a perfect pedestal for pro photographers and other creatives to show their work to other industries looking for creative excellence. Production Paradise members are proven experienced professionals that can deliver the goods.
Giles Christopher, Photographer, London
Production Paradise is an essential partner for us and has been since the agency started. It is still one of the biggest referral sites to our website and we are very extremely happy with the services Production Paradise has to offer and flexibility of their team.
Lucy Stephen, JSR, London
In particular I find the Spotlight Magazines really useful and helpful. They are divided into categories such as, Beauty, Food, Lifestyle etc, making it much easier to navigate and find artists in specific fields. This is why I regularly use Production Paradise when I'm looking for a photographer or artist.
Lesley Scott, Ogilvy & Mather, London
My view on advertising is that you’re not pitching for a certain job – you are keeping your name current and your work visible. I have chosen Production Paradise to help with that for many years. Production Paradise is a respected place to showcase your work. I know that the right people around the world are seeing my work.
Stephen Conroy, Photographer, London
Being a Production Paradise member really extended my exposure worldwide. They bring the creative world closer together and thanks to Production Paradise, I have new followers, emails and jobs from everywhere, especially in Portugal, Spain, England and Brazil, as my work appeals a lot in these markets.
Caesar Lima, Photographer, Los Angeles
“Jean Cazals about Production Paradise”
Jean Cazals, Food Photographer, London
Production Paradise membership definitely positions my company at the level that I need. And it is a very reliable source for all kinds of vendors and contacts around the globe.
Raul Chapa, Green is Good, Mexico City
Production Paradise is the only site that I advertise on. It has consistently reaped benefits for my company, I find it easy to navigate and a great source of knowledge.
Harriet Rosen, One Production, London
In the changing face of the digital age we’ve found Production Paradise to be an invaluable resource to promote our photographers globally.
Cathy Bennett, Vue, London
Production Paradise is such a useful tool for everybody in our industry. I think that having a “forum” where the best of the best are connected gives us all an advantage. My presence and relation with Production Paradise has helped me attract new talent and new clients and I consider it the leading source for establishing new relationships around the globe. Well done.
Kristoffer Kosloff, Filter Management, Los Angeles
Production paradise does a phenomenal job in promoting all aspects of production. In our case with still photography, our images and bio are listed among some of the industry’s best. No other listings compare to the quality of work and services that Production Paradise represents. When agencies and businesses are in need of production at the highest quality, there is no better place to look than Production Paradise.
Ryan Hill, 8183 Studio, Kansas City
Production Paradise is part of my promotion strategy, which includes direct mail and a strong social media presence. The variety of subject categories that Production Paradise promotes gives me the possibility of showing the diversity of my work to a wide variety of potential clients. I’m also starting to use Production Paradise as a resource for services; if I book a project in an unfamiliar city, I include Production Paradise in my search for support and contacts.
Peter Baiamonte , Photographer, New York
I found out about the website fairly early in our career. I’ve always believed in investment in marketing for growth; Production Paradise website offered the perfect platform to do this. Being so visual, the online gallery allows us to continually update with our newest work and locations, and the Spotlights are a great way to market certain areas of our business. It’s a marriage made in production heaven.
Marie Owen, LS Productions, Edinburgh
I’ve always included Production Paradise as one of my major research tools. Production Paradise is necessary and mandatory tool to locate and source international talents not only in art buying but also in film production. It contains some major important talents.
Cara Anne Specker, Havas Worldwide, Zurich
The obvious benefit is exposure. How much, like advertising itself, it’s nearly impossible to say for sure what affect the exposure has, but overall I’ve definitely seen a positive response. It’s not the be-all and end-all, but rather a valuable piece of the larger puzzle they call 'promotion'.
Sean Klingelhoefer, Photographer, Los Angeles
PP is great for marketing! It really complements the job of an artist and his agent, but it also opens markets in which the agent lacks presence. More than that, PP acts as an online showcase and PR tool, and increases and addresses social network presence with a clientele capacity that is hard to be found from a single agent or personal manager.
Marco Piana, Photographer & Director, New York
I would like to recommend Production Paradise as a vital and successful way of promoting and growing a freelance business. I am a fashion, wardrobe and props stylist based in London, and have received work as a result of my listing in Production Paradise. I believe it to be a viable route to gaining new clients and greater exposure.
Lisa Clor, Stylist, London
From its outset, Production Paradise has been a powerful means of communication in the industry. It’s an essential tool now as it has grown to offer exciting new services that expand my portfolio.
Alan, Alan Newnham, London
The latest Spotlight People & Lifestyle Photography issue had only been out for about a week and I had a meeting with some art buyers from a very big company regarding future work. I love what Production Paradise does.
Myles New, Photographer, London
In early 2016 I received a commissioned job for Tenneco Europe via Production Paradise. Margie Pazikas from Brussels was my AD & CD and she found me on Production Paradise and was very pleased with our cooperation.
Claus Morgenstern, Photographer, Frankfurt
I’m extremely happy that I’ve advertised with you guys. I’ve already received two job requests and this is only day one.
Dave Kennedy, Photographer, Cape Town
We work very hard to maintain and enhance the quality and relevance of our “product”, our stable of photographers. We work very hard to make our website supremely easy to use whilst being full of features. All of this however is a waste of time if we don’t get all of this hard work in front of the right people. This was true when we used to spend more time going out showing physical folios and it’s even truer now in our digital age. For us, Production Paradise makes those connections worldwide. It shows people who know us what we’re doing and it reaches out to people who don’t know us (yet), giving us the opportunity to put our work in front of them when they would otherwise remain unaware of our existence.
Horton - Stephens, Photo Agent, London
I use Production Paradise as a searching tool and rely on it as a source to look up who’s shooting still life, or who’s a great car photographer. Production Paradise is an amazing database for anyone working in the photographic or advertising industry and for me it's like an art buyer’s best friend.
Sarah Thompson, Creative Blood Agency, London
Production Paradise is a smart, efficient way of getting your work seen all over the globe. The hits one gets after a Spotlight release are great proof that people are looking at your work!
Karan Kapoor, Photographer, London
In this day and age we all profess to having a global reach but Production Paradise has truly delivered our creative production services to a worldwide audience. Whether it be animation for Austria or retouching for Romania, we are only ever a click away!
Mark Grosvenor, Smoke & Mirrors, London
Production Paradise has helped my company to grow internationally and reach a far wider audience than I could have hoped to achieve on my own. Word of mouth and reputation are of course invaluable, but everyone needs that one tool at their disposal to get people talking in the first place.
Serene Chiu, Redorfe, Singapore
Production Paradise works, it looks great and is acknowledged by clients to be the go-to source for photographers and production, especially when shooting overseas. The format is consistent and the standard of work is high. It's a great place to showcase my latest work and directs loads of traffic to my site.
Patrick Harrison, Photographer, London
In my first year with Production Paradise, and especially after my first appearance in Showcase Germany, I was booked by several international clients for some really interesting jobs. The platform is working out perfectly for me to be discovered worldwide!
Stefan Hobmaier, Photographer, Munich
Production Paradise has shown to be very useful for my work. The features and tools are fantastic, especially 'add to favorites'. The search engine is fast and gives you the perfect overview. A fine full-service one-stop-shop, I would really recommend it!
Sandra Brahm, Publicis, Hamburg
Since the beginning of MEL Y MEL we've been loyal members of Production Paradise and have made a lot of interesting new contacts in the international creative scene. Whether being searched for and found by clients, or looking for partners to work with myself, Production Paradise is the perfect international platform for networking!
Melanie Afflerbach, Executive Producer, MEL Y MEL, Zurich
I've always liked Production Paradise's simple design and clear information, so when they finally launched the Shanghai edition it was a no-brainer for me to advertise. The response has been excellent with some key accounts finding us through our listing. We get a fair amount of enquiries every month about our full range of services which have more than covered the cost of advertising.
Rodney, Central Studios, Shanghai
Production Paradise has made me visible to international professionals looking to work in my country, and as a result I've been contacted by clients who normally I'd never expect to reach. PP is a synonym for serious work proposals and high quality job requests. At the same time it is a great search engine and showcase. I'll definitely continue promoting my work through Production Paradise and will look to make use of all the tools and possibilities I can expect being a part of it.
Silvia Gerzeli, Make-up Artist, Rome
In such a competitive industry it's essential to get noticed and have the right people view your portfolio. Production Paradise provides the platform for doing this, sending your information and work to the right people. It also gives you a high SEO rating and the annual fee pays for itself after one day's work making it great value. This is why I have subscribed every year and will continue to do so.
David Handley, Photographer, London
I had a great result from Spotlight on Advertising Photography. I got a lot of visits as a result of that and I definitely want to do that again!
David Westphal, David Westphal Photography, Los Angeles
Production Paradise recently put us in touch with London based photo production company We Folk. The connection resulted in Da! Photohouse running the production service for a print advertising campaign for Star Alliance with photographer Jake Walters under Atomic Agency’s concept. Thanks to Production Paradise we have also recently been invited to pitch for an ADIDAS project by the Nurenberg based Die Zwei agency.
Damijan Skafar, DA! Photohouse
This is my second year with Production Paradise. I love the exposure my work is getting at an international level. Lots of visitors to my website come from PP and every time I’m published on one of their Spotlights I can see the spike of views on the metrics. If there is a place where your work needs to be showcased as a professional photographer in order to stand out and be seen, that is Production Paradise.
Victor Elias, Photographer, Los Angeles
My experiences with Production Paradise are very recent. After appearing in editions of both Spotlight and Showcase, I was contacted by three communications agencies - two from the UK and one from Austria. Being located near to Venice is one of our most attractive characteristics, and this is what clients often look for. As a result, we are continuously investing in Production Paradise as their way of communicating has proved very convincing and effective for us.
Giovanni Vedana, Ph Crew
We've had a fair few browsers directed from Production Paradise, which is great. Quite a few enquires from photographers too, but we tend to only represent Australasian-based artists at this stage. We thought you guys were incredibly accommodating, especially when we'd accidentally miss material deadlines (I know how annoying that it for any publisher). We will definitely be listing with PP again!
Rob, International Rescue, Auckland
Thank you Production Paradise! A good source is all you need.
Stephanie Marks, 20th Century Fox, Los Angeles
The Production Paradise directory provides a clear overview of the international photographic industry. You get comprehensive information about agents, production companies, studios and locations - and of course, photographers! Production Paradise provides a high-class selection, and furthermore in a beautiful layout. Really worthwhile!
Ulrike Jürgens, Scholz & Friends, Hamburg
I've used Production Paradise a number of times and for me it's definitely a great tool for reference, as most of what I find is modern and inspirational work that opens my eyes to what is going on creatively around the world. It's great to have that kind of overview available. At the same time, it's brilliantly practical for keeping up to date with production companies and other artists here in Prague. As an artist, it's an appealing tool to consider being featured on.
Paul Matthews, Vodafone, Prague
Production Paradise has proved an unbelievably useful tool for reaching out to my current client base and well beyond. At first my photographers weren't convinced, but now they keep asking me when the next issue is coming out as they know the exposure of our work cannot be beaten by anything else on the market. Visits to the site always rocket after we've been featured with Production Paradise.
Angela Woods, Photographers’ Agent, London
As a photographer and film-maker, it is essential in this competitive marketplace to get as many eyes as possible to take a look at your work. Within weeks of advertising on Production Paradise, requests from abroad have increased significantly, my website has received more than double the hits, and amazing feedback from all over the globe has become a normal occurrence in my inbox. Getting involved with PP was a smart decision, I wish I had done it sooner!
Alexander Hankoff, Photographer, New York
Production Paradise's Spotlight magazine is a great way of getting current projects in front of loads of people and for sure I have not only reconnected with older clients through the email news feature but have picked up new ones as well. It works!
Liz Artindale, Photographer, London
Production Paradise is our go-to tool for finding contacts when producing shoots abroad. The Directory provides extensive, reliable listings for any need: from creative agencies and equipment hire companies to hotels. We love the fact that it gives instant access to key contacts around the world and has such an easy-to-use interface. There really isn’t another website like Production Paradise. Keep up the good work!
Ksenia, Production Paris, Paris
I got over 500 visitors to my web site directly from being featured in just one edition of SHOWCASE - it has been an excellent and immediate way of raising awareness of my current projects. I'll definitely be in there again next time.
Spencer Rowell, Photographer, London
We have got more then 100 room nights after three months through Production Paradise. A single Production Team (Models, Make Up artists, Stylists, Art Director, Photographer, Production Crew etc.) generates easily 50 room nights during one Production stay of several Production days.
Miguel Ángel Puerta, Hotel Condes, Barcelona
After much persuasion by Verónica from Production Paradise, we finally decided to participate. On the very same day that we appeared online we received two requests for quotes, one of which became a commissioned job. Production Paradise has become one of the most important tools for our company to get new clients.
Guille Iriarte, Brite Productions, Latin America, Buenos Aires
The Special Edition SPOTLIGHT RENTAL STUDIOS was excellent, a great idea to keep the industry informed as to what's available here in London. Indeed, all the Production Paradise mailings are great, both informative and very well presented. We look forward to the next ones!
Plough Studios, Rental Studio, London
Although a tad sceptical at first, I was pleasantly surprised to find that visits to my website trebled within the first two weeks of launching. Needless to say, Production Paradise has proved to be a great medium through which to showcase my work, and I have received positive feedback and interest from both new and existing clients. Definitely worth doing!
Hilary Moore, Photographer, London
What I’ve noticed most since being listed on Production Paradise is that I’m contacted by possible future clients that I myself haven't contacted. Since I'm not listed in any other databases, it must be because of PP -or word of mouth! After the first Showcase I was featured in I used the forwarding service, and this immediately resulted in five jobs with new clients. Needless to say, I am very satisfied with being part of Production Paradise.
Patrick, Eclipse, Barcelona
We’ve been meaning to write for a while to comment that Pop House is a different place since publishing our ad and we are very happy with it. We recently supplied models to Women Secret and Dove thanks to Production Paradise.
Lartaun, Pop House Talent Management, Las Palmas G.C.
Communication means everything in today's globally connected world and I think Production Paradise offers the best method to stay in touch and develop my business. The fashion industry changes constantly and the only way to keep up with what is going on around the world is through the Internet. A site like productionparadise.com is therefore an outstanding way to have your work seen by thousands of people everyday. I’m excited to be working with Production Paradise and can say that they are very professional and fully dedicated to offering the best solutions to help my business grow.
Alvaro Reyes Acebal, HIGHER Model Management, Mexico City
I am really happy with Production Paradise. This past December I secured 2 jobs and had 3 enquiries into my artists. This is the first time a creative database is paying off. Thank you!
Jackie Baes, Seen Artists, Miami
Being in productionsparadise.com signified a great change in reaching clients through our website. The fact that our URL is linked with productionparadise increase hits by potential clients each time we appear in SHOWCASE. On a local level, the concept of productionparadise works much better than the European or worldwide directories, for theirs has much more quality control and is supported by the people who run it. Big thanks to Production Paradise.
Pierre Mallmann, Setup Productions, Barcelona
Production Paradise has proven to be a very helpful tool for presenting our work. As it spreads around the globe our exposure to potential clients and partners is huge. Everyone working at Production Paradise is extremely helpful and highly professional, with excellent communication with regards to what we as clients require. My personal opinion is that advertising with Production Paradise is definitely worth its price.
Pavleye, Photographer's Agent, Prague
Having a presence on Production Paradise and being in the Portrait Spotlight has been a real boost to my business. It massively increased people’s awareness of my work and has directly led to some new clients.
Kerry Harrison, Photographer, London
As one of the UK's top location and architectural photographers, I have always taken my self-promotion and advertising very seriously and have used different media throughout the years. The Production Paradise package worked beautifully for me and brought me a commission from an American production company shooting hotel interiors around the UK. This was my first call from the USA and shows that Production Paradise is working not just in the UK but around the world.
Simon Warren, Photographer, London
Entering my second year on the site, I've found everyone at Production Paradise to be responsive and pleasant to work with. The site is easy to navigate and the Showcase/Spotlight gallery layouts display my work beautifully. Most importantly, it drives noticeable traffic towards my site, with multiple weekly referral links.
Rich Begany, Photographer, New York
Before joining, I never thought Production Paradise would affect my work so much. The number of jobs I've been offered has almost doubled since my first appearance in Showcase Magazine, and continues to steadily increase. It's a wonderful platform both for clients and creatives to find the right people
Bora Sübakan, Photographer, Istanbul
From the moment my feature appeared website traffic increased dramatically, as did email enquiries. As a photographers' agent, this is exactly the type of exposure I need. I will certainly be booking another feature with Production Paradise.
Clare Fletcher, Clare Fletcher Represents, London
Like most photographers I want people to see my work. Production Paradise has been a gateway to my website for viewers around the globe. Nearly every international hit to my site is from a link on Production Paradise. With the wealth of information on Production Paradise I am impressed that reader take time to further explore the resources and artists featured.
David Lewis Taylor, Photographer, New York
Since gaining international visibility through Production Paradise, I have received requests for jobs from Switzerland, Ukraine and Russia. Also for the German market it's worth being a part of Production Paradise, as I'm frequently contacted following publication of my features.
Christoph Siegert, Christoph Siegert, Hamburg
I'm very happy with my two spots in Spotlight Sport Photography. They have generated quite a lot of traffic on my website and have gotten me in touch with potential clients that I would have had a hard time getting in touch with as an independent photographer without an agency behind me. I also got very nice feedback from a current client who had seen my photos beforehand on Production Paradise - in general I'm quite surprised how much the magazine helped push my publicity and I'm already looking forward to the next Spotlight Sport Photography!
Lars Scharl, Lars Scharl Photo, Berlin
I gained a new client within a very short time after listing my rental studio in the Frankfurt directory. I'm now looking forward to having a Spotlight feature published.
Thomas Goos, Xsight, Rent A Studio, Frankfurt
It's always hard to quantify where the work comes from, but, I have recently picked up a very big client and they got my details on... Production Paradise!
David, Photographer, London
A few days after the Spotlight Food edition in which I presented my work, I received interesting enquires that led to some good contacts - and even some concrete collaborations! I like both the presentation and the international aspect of Production Paradise and will continue to use it.
Michael Meisen, Photographer, Frankfurt
We were looking for a Brazilian car photographer and Production Paradise helped us with some great proposals. Thanks for all your help!
Christiane Anctil, The Richards Group, Dallas
Production Paradise is the most professional, efficient and informative network engine for this industry globally. It is also an invaluable self-promotional resource. If you're not in, you’re out! I experienced only positive results from joining forces with them. No other similar company has come close to what Production Paradise is offering and has accomplished.
Justin Chan, Justin Chan Represents, Shanghai
We have had the pleasure of working with Production Paradise for three years. During this time we have hosted many foreign productions in Poland. We would also like to emphasise that in our opinion, Showcase and Spotlight Magazines always look great and we are very satisfied with our cooperation.
Pawel Walicki, Warsaw Creatives, Warsaw
Production Paradise... it's the place to be! I was found by a photographer from Hamburg and we have since collaborated on a fantastic project. It's definitely worth it to be in it!
Cordula Schill, Cordula Schill Styling, Frankfurt
Being part of the Production Paradise Directory is by far the most career uplifting experience I have had in my professional life so far. I find it's the best tool for promoting myself throughout the industry and beyond.
Lyubomir Sergeev , Sergeev Studio, New York
My presence in Production Paradise is worth it - it just works and gives me international attention!
Thomas von Salomon, Photographer, Frankfurt
Being a Production Paradise member, I feel like a top player: it creates opportunities to be treasured.
Roberto Magliozzi, Photographer, Milan
This is my first year on Production Paradise, which is definitely an investment in my own advertising. You have to get people to see your stuff- art buyers, scouts, producers, and even the clients. You can’t really afford to stop connecting with people, and find yourself continuously having to say ‘Hey, have a look at my new reel!’ It's great to have the tools on Production Paradise, they help you to be seen by the right people.
Caspar Arnhold, Director & Photographer, Frankfurt
Thanks so much Production Paradise for the nice publication! The Spotlight looks great and I've already seen a big increase in traffic to my website. I'm so happy to see my work alongside some of the world's leading photographers.
Sander de Wilde, Photographer, Brussels
I like to be inspired by the work of my fellow members and to be part of an international community.
Christian Burmester, Photographer, Bremen
The world is small, our industry is small, and I like to travel the world. PP brought me to the front of the international stage.
Nir Adar, Food Stylist, New York
It has helped to draw attention to our website, so that we can better share our work and story!
Coolife, Photographer, New York
Production Paradise is undoubtedly the best tool to gain maximum visibility and find just what you need. Recently, they provided us with the contact of a Turkish production company, which led to a production. As a studio and equipment rental in Barcelona, we want to have international customers and who better than these guys to put us on the map?
Ivan Martí, Tuset Studio, Barcelona
I wanted to change my marketing plan from the same old directory and online portals that all my colleagues use, and PP was the perfect solution. For less $$s per year I reach a global audience of creatives, brands and agencies who actually subscribe to the site. They know Production Paradise is serious about vetting the talent they present. I am so ecstatic with the traffic and enquiries PP generated immediately.
Sue Barr, Photographer, New York
Car photography is such a specialized niche in the photo world and I spent a lot of time researching the various companies that promise to get your name in front of the people who matter. I have several friends in the advertising industry and know that they receive the Production Paradise emails, showcases and spotlights. It’s also nice being part of such a diverse group of photographers who advertise with Production Paradise. Everyone in the car section has such a unique style and approach that I think we’re not competing against one another and instead, complementing each other.
Ken Brown, Photographer, San Francisco
What I find the most useful about PP is worldwide exposure that it’s given me across many platforms.
Steven Noble, Illustrator, San Francisco
Listing our company on Production Paradise has opened up our horizons and increased our exposure worldwide. We offered our services to an Italian company which entailed location scouting to complete shoot services for a luxury brand & celebrity shoot. They were very happy with our work and we maintain a good friendship. Our collaboration is further opening up other mutually beneficial channels. All thanks to Production Paradise where the listings are reliable & of top quality service providers!
Nipurna Jadeja , Vanguard Films, Mumbai
The worldwide reach each photographer has is one of the most useful aspects of Production Paradise. The customer service is also very valuable. Being able to email the staff and get instant feedback on images or questions you might have is extremely useful.
Keith Barraclough, Photographer, New York
Over the course of the past few years we have invested more in online platforms to keep our name and ultimately the artists work in front of commissioners and the industry influencers. Production Paradise stands out as the most versatile source platform so we have consistently increased our presence and investment and now its a largest marketing commitment outside our own website and social platforms.
Jamie Stephen, JSR Agency, London
The Production Paradise network is vast, and it runs deep. We love being part of this community, and not just because we’ve heard countless times that this is where someone found us. What’s nice is that it works in every direction: Production Paradise is the first resource we go to when we look for new production partners, and it’s an established, reliable platform where clients, agencies, and creatives seek out talent – a win-win.

Raul Chapa, Green is Good, Mexico City
Very happy to be featured in Spotlight Magazine. On an international scale, this fantastic organisation puts creatives in touch with the creative industry's art buyers and commercial photography's commissioning professionals in the marketing and advertising world. This platform benefits the creatives and clients equally enabling a dynamic and fluid connection for people who produce and require high end work.
Adam Gault, Photographer, London
Production Paradise’s global reach is crucial to expanding the future of Tippy Canoe. We have had clients from as far as India become repeat clients due to the international influence that Production Paradise has within the industry. It’s great to be connected with the top agencies and talents of the world.
Tyler Ellithrorpe, Tippy Canoe, New York
The most important thing about the Production Paradise Spotlight Awards is that a photo award keeps the quality bar up high in our market. Nowadays I believe this is one of the most important issues in the ad industry. With the growth of digital content and media, lots of marketing professionals believe that production is not that important. They want to solve anything with a mobile camera and a couple of hundred dollars, but still expecting amazing results from it. And in real life we know that’s not exactly possible. I also truly believe that an award such as the Spotlight Awards can open many doors to all kinds of photographers. Not only the prize itself but being seen by a worldwide jury is already a great opportunity for many professionals out there.
Fabinho Cerdeira, Creative Director, Uber, Sao Paulo
Why am I always drawn to working with Production Paradise? Is it due to the professionalism and the service Production Paradise offers? Is it due to the special features and skills of the many photographers, agencies, and talents who are being represented? The good relationship to our dedicated agent from Production Paradise? Or the recommendations and offers we get from all over the world? For me, it is the combination of all these factors, that always makes the collaboration with Production Paradise a pleasurable and professional experience. I am looking forward to the upcoming projects! Simply put: Thank you for the great work!
Martina-Irene Cerny, Making Of, Vienna
Within just a week of putting our listing up, we already had a number of enquiries, higher traffic to our website and secured a major campaign. Couldn’t have gotten a better response!
Anissa Payne, NM Productions, London
Production Paradise is an amazing platform with so much talent, know-how, and inspiration. At Hooligans Magazine we only work with the best creative talents and the most outstanding brands in the kids fashion industry and it’s an amazing platform to obtain an overview of what’s going on in the business.
Natasscha Girelli, Hooligans Magazine, Copenhagen
I’m grateful that such a platform exists, not only it allows us to source talents and services for our own projects but also helped us to get new clients who would have not heard of us if it wasn't for Production Paradise's publications or directory.
Sharon Battat, Litmedia Productions, Brazil
Thanks for making such a great tool for us! Recently your website was very helpful when we were looking for a lifestyle photographer for Head & Shoulders. On Production Paradise we found and worked with a German photographer on a great shoot in Dubai. I use your site on a weekly basis when looking for new talent for a specific type of photography. I also use it as general inspiration, to see what is out there and to keep up to date.
Andrea Guimet, Saatchi & Saatchi, Dubai
After only 2 days of being listed on Production Paradise, I booked a job from that listing! It was a big agency out of San Francisco who needed a photographer to shoot in LA, Las Vegas and another city in Colorado! Production Paradise is the best! Thank you!
Ryan Forbes, Photographer, Los Angeles
The process in the digital age has changed a lot; we used to show big handmade portfolios - today almost everything is done online. Production Paradise helps promoting our photographers internationally. The site is easy to navigate and the search engine works great for us. We already had several enquiries and commissions from major agencies outside Europe. That's great. The customer service is extremely good. If we have any questions or issues, a contact person is available immediately. And because customer service is so important to us, this makes us especially happy.
Sylvia Weinmann, Avenger Photographers, Munich
I have certainly found platforms like Production Paradise useful for getting the exposure that leads to great commissions.

Production Paradise Spotlight Awards give photographers visibility, in a crowded industry.
Laurent Dailloux, Procurement Manager for Marketing Content, Nestlé Global, Paris
Thank you for the excellent service you provide! I must be sincere, over my years of membership I've secured at least 10 new clients thanks to PP. When I travel and look for production companies I only rely on your website, it's such a homogeneous community made up of people with the same professional point of view. Congratulations!
Nicola Martinengo, Soloprod, Milan
Spotlight Awards give photographers visibility. Production Paradise is a global platform followed by an increasing number of professionals. Among these, there are creatives looking for ideas and a more international vision.
Stefano Gruarin, Art buyer at Prodigious (Publicis Groupe), Milan
Production Paradise is huge for me. For instance, I shot a Chevrolet Beat brochure in India over January and the job was commissioned through an art buyer in Thailand who saw my work on Production Paradise. With the client from Singapore and the crew from India, it really was a league of nations. I also picked up my agents from India and China through Production Paradise, so it has been good to me over the years that I’ve been involved.
Darren Capp, Photographer, Sydney
I am quite aware of how difficult it is these days to get any exposure and set yourself apart from the photographer next door. Awards like Production Paradise’s offer a unique chance for professionals to hopefully get their work out there for the world to see, receive some positive feedback and some constructive criticism if that is the case. It is a platform to expand one’s network of people who can later become influential in that person’s professional life.
Cassio Cappelossa, Global Brand Identity and Merchandise, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, San Diego
Production Paradise has been a great asset for getting my work out in front of new potential clients. I booked a great job within a few short months of working with them. I would highly recommend the service for any creatives looking to expand their business.
Sally Peterson, Photographer, Los Angeles
What makes the Production Paradise Spotlight Awards different is that photographers get their work judged from the people who have the eye and nose to know what is commercially viable. It is not just a hat doffed to creativity and vision, it is also an opening of windows to new opportunities, work and ways of learning.
Shantesh Row, Chief Creative Officer, Slant Agency, Dubai
Production Paradise is a vital resource in the industry worldwide, so it makes sense for photographers to use their awards as a platform to increase their international exposure. The awards are literally delivering exceptional work to the eyes of art buyers and producers all over the world.

I use Production Paradise to stay informed about production companies and to see both the latest and earlier work of the people I am interested in. I also use Production Paradise to get inspiration for new photo looks and trends, and I really like the search tools on the website. The main categories I’m using are Car photography and People and Lifestyle photography.
Michael Kauer, Art Director - KNSK, Hamburg
Being at a turning point for our studio after some important investments, we wanted a way to increase exposure for our services and show our possibilities to a larger international audience of clientele. Doing a search for the possible channels to achieve this goal, I subscribed to Production Paradise’s Spotlight and Showcase magazines. I started to receive a very impressive overview of work by some of our colleagues in a very clear, focused and targeted way. This triggered my interest and I contacted PP to hear about their proposal. After a very clear and helpful telephone call giving me a detailed insight of the service they proposed, I decided to go all-in. And boy, was this a bullseye shot! Being a smaller-sized photo studio in Belgium, after just one month we took on the first international job for a major brand agency in London, and again, a few weeks later, we received a request from a NY brand agency. Our dedicated agent from Production Paradise contacts me proactively every few weeks to keep in touch and see where we can improve the targeted exposure, through the Spotlight and also dedicated Showcase magazines as well as via active social media coverage by Production Paradise. Working together with the specialist from Production Paradise and putting in your end of the effort to provide the required content, for which they guide and assist you, it just works!

Giorgio Mugnai, Art Buyer - Hello Lola, Barcelona
Only through my publications on Production Paradise has my latest commission for Head & Shoulders in Dubai, been possible. The Art direction team of Saatchi & Saatchi found me and my work on Production Paradise. This platform is a really great way to be present internationally.
Maik Floeder, Photographer & Director, Hamburg
Austria is a small country, and therefore its domestic creative scene isn't the largest. With Production Paradise I've found an international partner that allows me to reach beyond the Austrian border. Through Production Paradise, the world now knows about me - both me and my work get far more attention. I know a lot of creative people across all sectors who use the service. The website has a clear design and browsing through it you will find whatever you are looking for, anywhere in the world – for example, an Austrian photographer who loves travelling abroad! Production Paradise is great, and I particularly want to thank my agent, Vanessa Christmann!
Mona Lorenz, Photographer, Vienna
Since we joined Production Paradise, we've got nothing but countless enquiries, priceless advising, and top professionals promoting our work both nationally and worldwide. Thank you guys! Keep it up!

Peyman Amin, Pars Management, Munich
Well before the Internet existed, there were photographers' representative agents in the major cities and they would knock on people's doors selling your work. Production Paradise is the aftermath of this - they knock on many people's doors with a well designed email blast that reaches not only your own city, but many others around the world.
Antonio Chagin, ACH Digital Photography, Miami
Being a member of Production Paradise gives us a voice to speak to prospective new clients whilst keeping our current client base in the loop as to what we're doing. Communication is so important in this business, and the huge network that Production Paradise has makes that an easy and seamless task.
Nick Limb, Curve Digital, Nottingham
The most useful aspect of Production Paradise is that our Showcases and magazine features are being directly viewed on the screens of clients, art buyers and photographers – straight to the heart of who we want to engage with.
Chloe Cunningham, Smoke & Mirrors, London
It's my ultimate creative database, with Production Paradise I can find a specialist who can help to produce and realise my ideas, anywhere! My clients do the same and have found me here for some very interesting productions.
Martin Bauendahl, Photographer, Hamburg
Production Paradise broadens my reach to European clients and inspires me come up with a fresh body of work every couple of months. It makes me look back to the work very frequently, pull together a new look and say ''what can I show now?'' One of the clients that I recently found through Production Paradise was Volvo Construction Equipment Spirit and I have done a couple of shoots for them in Brooklyn and Panama. It was a huge project and a great client to work with.
Dan Bigelow, Photographer, New York
When running a successful photo agency, you need the right marketing tool. Production Paradise is that right marketing tool for us. I discovered Production Paradise about 15 years ago and it was the first online tool available for an Art Buyer or Producer to be able to find everything at your fingertips.
Emma Buckland, Agent Emma, Cape Town
Condé Nast London found us through productionparadise.com. They were looking for a producer as well as a location for a celebrity shoot and we offered our services. The result? They were more than happy, and will be booking us again when they come back to Vienna!
Michaela Fidanzia, f6 - The open Factory, Vienna
Production Paradise is the future of promotion and source for photographers, moving image makers and all production resources. The website is very well designed and you can easily navigate to find exactly what you're looking for. Our listing and Showcase features have led to enquiries and work from all around the world.
Jamie Stephen, Jamie Stephen Represents, London
I would genuinely say that Production Paradise is one of the best available online platforms to promote photographers and all the associated business that goes with them. The structure and design is very stylish and visually strong, while navigation is easy and the quality excellent. To say whether PP has helped me? Yes, they certainly have - that’s why I have been with them for so many years. Again, it's always difficult to know exactly what the full impact is, but when clients let you know where they've found your name, then you really know! The key is to be out there to catch the eye of potential clients. In that, Production Paradise is one of the leaders in its field.
Jean Cazals, Photographer, London
In my opinion, Production Paradise is the very best tool to showcase photography in such a good style. Personally, I've gotten in touch with many international clients and completed a number of jobs thanks to Production Paradise. Every good artist should jump on this great opportunity to have their work shown worldwide.
Francesco Majo, Photographer, Milan
As a Creative I don't really promote myself enough, so being a member of Production Paradise has helped me to showcase my work internationally and brought me enquiries and jobs worldwide.
Carlos Lumière, Photographer, London
I got to know Production Paradise through friends who were successfully using the service, and so I wanted to give it a try as well. PP gave a great boost to my career; through them I've found a number of important clients worldwide with whom I'm still in touch and continue to work for. I've collected many positive experiences through contacts with some really great professionals, and moreover the PP magazines are the best showcases for attracting international visibility.
Fabio Mercurio, Fashion Stylist, Milan
Production Paradise is a very well-known directory for companies who do shootings, and we did quite a lot with them. They not only show the location companies, but they can offer help for international shootings.
Richard Brekelmans, W Hotel, Barcelona
Production Paradise is a now a very necessary part of my marketing strategy. I have had more success with Spotlights in the last year than other more expensive forms of marketing. The website looks great and clients often tell me how it serves as a great resource for our industry. It has helped my international profile no end!
Charlie Troman, Photographer, London
Production Paradise has given me much more international exposure to the exact people I want to be in front of, Creatives in the Automotive industry, and help expose me to potential new industry makers. The digital curation of their website and consistent quality content, keep everyone on the Production Paradise site relevant and visible. Even when I miss my deadline to be featured, I still find inspiration on Production Paradise.

Production Paradise offers the best promotional solution for commercial photography studios, The Glassworks uses it as the key driver of traffic to the website and relies on it for top end introductions to the best clients worldwide.
Marcus Lyon, Founder and Creative Director, The Glassworks Agency, London
Production Paradise is been a tremendous help to promote my work especially abroad. Time speaks for itself as I have been with them for years. The website is really well done as well as the quality of the images. It’s 'the name' of the game among the promotional websites on offer.
Jean Cazals, Photographer, London
Thanks to Production Paradise I've started working with international customers from around the world. I'm based in Athens, Greece, but within a very short time I got my first job from the UK shooting for Condé Nast with Ferrari. Production Paradise really is a creative database that demands your attention.
Studio Athimaritis, Photographer, Athens
I just wanted to let you guys know how overall pleased I am with the results from my listing this past year on Production Paradise. Since my original listing last spring, I have been awarded a corporate portrait shoot from a New York client, and an industrial ad shoot from a Canadian client, estimated two industrial projects from German agencies, and had numerous clicks to my website from all over the world. A pretty decent return on investment, I would say! I don't know how this compares to others' experiences, but I'll be continuing to list with Production Paradise and will recommend it to my friends.
Dan Bigelow, Photographer, New York
The response we have received from the Production Paradise Spotlight's has been significant and we highly recommend working with their team.

Production Paradise has allowed me to reach out to clients who a few year ago were practically unreachable. As a local producer in Brazil I have now broadened my client base to various countries in Europe and North America. Just recently my company executed a production for a German car manufacturer, who found me via PP. We are also currently in the process of producing a catalogue for an American client via PP. I highly recommend it for those who are wanting to broaden their client base as well as produce abroad.

This May we were looking for a studio and wrote to Production Paradise. We have high demands for a rehearsal space, because we have a lot of special moments in our show, so it was not an easy task to do. Production Paradise was very helpful and put us in touch with a great studio in Copenhagen! Studio was exactly the place we were looking for! Everybody was so kind and helped us with every question. I want to say thank you to everybody who made our rehearsal perfect! We really appreciate this and will work with you again and again.

I use Production Paradise a lot as a resource for my work, and receive both the Spotlight and Showcase newsletters. Production Paradise is a helpful tool for Art Buyers, and personally I find Spotlight Magazine very useful. You get a well structured and nicely presented overview of each artists’ work with the first click, and with the second you jump directly to the artist’s website - instantly accessing the essential information.

Directly following our images being put up on the premium position of Production Paradise our website traffic increased by 60% with another 400 hits coming as a direct result of the Spotlight International Photographers Agents mailing. Definitely an immediate way to get the photography out to industry decision makers. Thank you.
Charlotte Morgan, Morgan Lockyer, London
I checked my Stats after the April Spotlight went out and the number of hits suddenly leapt, I saw 10 times the normal level of activity for quite a few days after. I like the concept of a virtual community, I used the directory to source a hire studio last week, it's an easy first port of call when sourcing creative services and information.

We have been promoting our agency and models through productionparadise.com for five years now, and are more than happy with the results.

I used Production Paradise's new feature to send my recent SHOWCASE feature to a list of prospects email addresses... within one day, I had two calls to see the book, and a quote to prepare. Thank you for an easy and useful little marketing tool!
Howard Kingsnorth, Photographer, London
Our listing on Production Paradise has more than paid for itself. We are so happy with the amount of attention our company has received as a result. In fact, just a couple of weeks ago we were contacted by a magazine looking for location scouting services which then turned into full service production and what looks to be a long lasting relationship. When asked where they found us they said: Production Paradise! Production Paradise is a vital tool for anyone in the industry both as a reliable resource and PR.
Sophia Gholz, SGM Productions, New York
Our showcase in Production Paradise gave us 10 times more traffic in a couple of days. This boost generated visitors to our web site and helped reach users and build brand awareness of our mobile content that we could not have gotten on our own. Many thanks to Mario and the Production Paradise Team for there successful online campaign.
Lee Corey, CoreyToons.com, New York
For us, Production Paradise isn't just another public directory. We took quite some time to choose which would be the best directory for our services. In the end we settled on Production Paradise because we liked the professional design of the site and, above all, the direct personal support of the company's staff. On top of that, Production Paradise has really worked for us. We connected with many new clients immediately after signing up and the investment has paid for itself with good job offers from a wide selection of professional partners. If you want to boost your business and connect with professionals from all over the globe, then I would personally recommend joining Production Paradise.

It has only been out for a few hours since the Photo Production Spotlight has been sent and I've already received an enquiry for a two-week job with a Singapore-based company - You guys ROCK! I also heard from a Swedish photography group for a shoot in Texas, and a German photographer for a one-day shoot in Chicago. Yahoo!

It really is a fantastic tool!

Today we have to be more versatile when it comes down to self marketing and visibility, which is why Production Paradise is an important part of my self marketing strategy. The bottom line is: If nobody knows you are alive, nobody will call you. It really is as simple as this.

My listings with Production Paradise have been fantastic for me since the first San Francisco Showcase Magazine, launched nearly 3 years ago! As a freelance Hair & Makeup artist, I have worked with international clients that found me on Showcase platforms, beautifully designed by fab team at Production Paradise. They’re a world-class global directory with a prestigious roster of professionals in film and photography…I highly recommend Production Paradise!

We reached Production Paradise thanks to good feedback from an Italian photographer.

I had immediate contact from foreign clients, something that corresponds entirely with my current goals. Thanks Sergio and Production Paradise!

Patrícia Lino, Production Services Portugal, Lisbon
I am very pleased with the amount of attention I have received from Production Paradise. My ROI from the Spotlight Magazine listing arrived shortly after it was published. I was able to book with a client as a direct result of my advertising efforts with Production Paradise. In addition, I have also seen a definite increase in website traffic. I would strongly recommend this creative partnership to any photographer looking to drive new business, and I personally look forward to many years of business to come.
Perry Smyre, Inc. Architectural Photography, Atlanta
I am an advertisng, location and transportation photographer based in Los Angeles CA, USA. I originally signed up with Production Paradise to gain some international exposure. I was somewhat skeptical. Not sure if skeptical is the right word. I guess my expectations were set on the lower side. What I realized right away was that by just being listed on PP was enough to direct traffic to my site. Far more than I originally thought. When the first Spotlight came out, I was shocked at the amount of traffic to my site. It was remarkable. The listing on the website and the Spotlights have done a lot towards increasing my international visibility. I just signed up for my 3rd year. And as a side note, I find PP useful as a resource for production services outside the US.
David Westphal, Photographer, Los Angeles
Being a Production Paradise member not only connects us to other creatives from the industry, it extends our exposure and gives our work greater opportunities to be seen by others.

My work can be displayed to a worldwide network of professionals, clients and people interested in the business. What else can you want from an Internet platform? It’s great, it’s interactive, and the more I work with it the better it gets. Our long-term relationship is steadily positive.
Nina Wriedt Melton, Photographer, Barcelona
I think that when I get feedback from followers on my social media pages, it does give me a sense of ‘I must be doing something right’ as I consider myself to be an artist and I always try to give 100% in my work. I have worked all over the world, and a lot of this has happened through clients contacting me through Production Paradise.
Laura Viana da Silva, Hair & Make Up Artist, Lisbon
This year, for the first time we decided to place our work on the PP website across both Showcase and Spotlight magazines. I can assure you that it has been a good decision, as we’ve received numerous offers in only just three months. We have picked up new clients from all over the world, and thanks to PP we are more visible than ever in the international market. Moreover, I’m very pleased with their personal attentiveness. They always make good suggestions and take good care of us. I’m sure Production Paradise is the right platform to be on!
Anna Gifre, Musaranya, Barcelona
It's very nice that we can select to feature in an edition of Spotlight made specifically for our main business, like the latest 'Services for Photography and Film', and yet still be listed in the main Directory. Another interesting tool is Vimity, which gives you the chance to be showcased on a different platform and still be linked to PP. Not to mention the fact that you have a great audience out there, full of demanding and interesting clients. We can also publicly see what others have been doing and this is a nice way to find new inspiration.

PP has definitely helped to spread the name of my company internationally, which draws attention from many sides of the industry. I am very thankful for their services.

The ability to be easily found is most useful. And we also use Production Paradise ourselves quite often to look for new clients and follow our colleagues in the field.
Dario, DVH Creative Studios, Amsterdam
Production Paradise is a professional platform in terms of production in general, but also for all kinds of shooting destinations and locations across the world. At Chicas Curacao we feel that we need and want to be part of this worldwide network. Being a member is a way to stay up-to-date with the latest campaigns, new photographers, new locations, etc. But it gives us – as a still-to-be discovered shooting destination – a great opportunity to present our company and our beautiful island to the rest of the world.
Marcia de Goede, Chicas Photo Productions, Curaçao
I use Production Paradise for my research. Obviously I am always searching for talents and Production Paradise gives me an international view of what’s going on around the globe.
Giorgio Mugnai - Art Buyer, LOLA, Barcelona
PP helps us to place ourselves in the international market and make the industry aware that we exist as an agency. We like the clear structure and we highly appreciate their professional support.
Svetlana Jakel, Kombinatrotweiss, Frankfurt
This is our first time that we go further to show our work, Production Paradise is a perfect way to spread our work and to have people all over the world that can see our work and we are very excited to be part of it. We hope in the future that we reach the international marketing and that we could collaborate with Ads all over the world, I think Gravity Cam has much to offer in the industry and we will keep working to do our best to satisfy the world market and we are glad to be in Production Paradise.
Manuel Santos, Gravity Cam, Mexico City
The only big promotion I’ve done is through PP, which has worked very well for me. Otherwise I’m a strong believer in a word of mouth and the power of that and doing your job the best you can. I try to keep a close eye on what other people in the industry do.
Linn Flammier, Norway Does Productions - NODOP, Oslo
howcase Paris keeps you always up-to-date and informed of what creatives are doing in the city – it’s interesting for the entire advertising industry, for art buying itself, to find talent – but also for people to find photo studios, casting studios like ours. We use Production Paradise when we do productions abroad… it’s great for us, but it’s also great for art buyers. (…) You look for something related to the photography and film industry – you find it on Production Paradise.
Henrik Jessen, Bellanopolis, Paris
It goes without saying — Production Paradise is an amazing global network of the industry’s best. As an Art Director I am constantly searching for new work and the artists behind it, so Production Paradise is an incredibly important platform to help both the photographers and the rest of the industry at large.
Alayna Kunitake, Ogilvy, Melbourne
“Niall Horton-Stephens about Production Paradise”
Niall Horton-Stephens, Photo Agent, London
When we decided to launch Kindly, one of the first listings we considered was Production Paradise. Our producers already had PP on their radar or had used the directory themselves. Something we apply well to our services is to use our US production network for a range of industries and successfully apply it to non-US productions. Having the US market and contacts already in shape, we felt that Production Paradise would help extend the reach to more international clients and photographers. And it’s worked!
Jennifer Kim, Kindly Productions, New York
In this highly competitive market, it is vital to get your work in front of the right people. We have found Production Paradise to be, by far, the best platform to showcase our work to agencies and art buyers around the world. We have recently had two large commissions from clients in the US and New Zealand, who contacted us after seeing our Spotlight feature on the Production Paradise website.
Mark Zawila, Photographer, London
Within 6 months of putting our work on Production Paradise we landed one of our largest accounts and had our images in campaigns shown worldwide. Productoin Paradise also stands out with the attention given to their members, they provided seamless white glove service and helped us organize the work to be showcased. Not having a rep can be a disadvantage in getting a photographer’s work shown. Production Paradise’s platform has our work submitted to the decision makers in the industry directly. Other promotion venues have not been as efficient or effective in finding new clients. Production Paradise is now considered a vital part of our photography team – they have found loyal customers in us.
Ellen McDermott, Photographer, New York
In Spotlight Awards you have judges from all over the world who will have eyes on your work. This is huge for photographers looking to make connections in all different industries. I’m always looking for new photographers to recommend to my team who bring a fresh perspective to the art form. I imagine most of the other judges have a similar mindset. Our industry is all about networking and this is a great way to do that.
Cari Spinnler, Senior Content Producer and Marketing Consultant, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Portland
It is very important to show off your work and make it visible for your potential clients. Production Paradise has been a huge help to do this and I am sure I will keep relying on Production Paradise to expose my work to the world.
Hiro K, Photographer, Tokyo
Production Paradise gets our images in front of all the right people, and that’s all you can ask of a promotional tool. If you’re doing good stuff and you put it in the Production Paradise ''window'', the phone will ring.
Matt Harris, Photographer, London
We joined Production Paradise a year ago on a quest to expand our services to clients overseas who vision filming in Israel and the Mediterranean. Over the year we've been working with Joe from Production Paradise who guided us through the process and made our subscription the gold mine it flourished to be. Through Production Paradise, in just a year, we expanded our work and doubled our overseas clientele, working with big international companies and fulfilling our goals and visions to take the company to the next level. Production Paradise definitely pushed us closer to fulfilling our ambitions and hence we are with no doubt continuing for a second year! Production Paradise is highly recommended for any company or individual in the production field!
Golan Hay Betov, Hamaagar Locations, Tel Aviv
Having been with Production Paradise for almost a decade has been definitely worthwhile. I know from my team that we have clients who found us thanks to Production Paradise. It’s also always a great resource when searching for artist management agencies, freelance photographers, stylists, make-up & hair artists, so on. It’s been a pleasure for us to collaborate with Production Paradise for all these years and I hope we have more to achieve together in the near future.
Andy Fiord, Andy Fiord Production, Saint Petersburg
In a crowded industry like ours, Production Paradise does an outstanding job bringing together and highlighting reliable services. The global reach is very useful. From the first day on I felt warmly received and treated very personally being offered services tailored to my needs. Thank you so much the great and honest support!
Anatol Gottfried, Photographer, Barcelona
I often use Production Paradise, and I find it invaluable when I'm doing a production overseas.
Sophie Chapman-Andrews - Art Buyer, McCann, London
I am currently using Spotlight Awards to find new talent!
Toru Fujii, Senior Creative Director, ADK, Tokyo
The exposure from the Spotlight and Showcase features is great – the analytics prove that it works. I’m featured amongst some really high caliber professionals, which again, gives me motivation and inspiration to keep improving and striving to take my work up another notch.
Amanda Aitken, Photographer & Director, Auckland
I always thought it looked good and had a great reach. I am thrilled to be working with Production Paradise now.
Michael Grecco:, Photographer, Los Angeles
This is the second year that Etna Productions has been listed with Production Paradise and we couldn't be happier. Production Paradise is an extremely valuable promotional tool that gets our work out to potential clients. We are a production company based on the island of Sicily and Production Paradise has made it easier for us to share the potential of Sicily with the outside world. The team is very helpful and are always happy to advise us.
Peppe D’Urso, Etna Productions, Palermo
Production Paradise is a great portal. Their reach is wide and I get enquiries from all over the world. Not all come to something but that is not what it’s all about, its exposure and letting people know you're out there so when you are right for someone they come knocking. Also it allows creatives to see what you're like and that you're someone they could work with - without drama and keeping it fun and creative.
Myles New, Photographer & Director, London
Spotlight Awards is about exposure, it ensure the best images are seen by the right people which will lead to more great work together.
Brendan Donnelly, Creative Director, M&C Saatchi, Sydney
Thanks to the Spotlight Awards we can have a sort of communication, between photographers and the creatives that hire them – it’s a meeting point for us, and I find that very interesting. For me, it will be a way to discover new photographers that I may not be able to find anywhere else. Photographers get bigger exposure, they get people to know their work, the same way Production Paradise works – they are aiming specifically at people that are potential clients, creatives, art directors – people that are constantly looking for new talent. I am always looking for new talent and I really love the fact that Spotlight Awards are looking from the perspective of the buyers, the creatives in agencies. This is a meeting between people on both sides of this industry, people that need each other and love each other!
Paula Sabater, Havas Worldwide, Barcelona
Production Paradise is a great portal for all professionals who want to find resources for photo and video productions around the globe. The fact that I can find different talents in different cities during my photo assignments is a great bonus. It makes the creative process much more intuitive and simple.
Rocco Ceselin, Photographer, Los Angeles
Often new clients introduce themselves by citing Production Paradise as their source, which creates an immediate sense of confidence. I consider us one of the longest standing clients of Production Paradise (and still kicking)!
Christian Bengsch, 7 Seas Productions, Havana
Production Paradise has been a valuable tool in attracting overseas customers to our services here in the UK.
Ian Potter, The Great British Production Company, London
Participating in Spotlight Awards is a great opportunity to potentially collaborate with a judge. Because it’s international, there are loads of global brands and those brands have their own personality and styles which will inform how they see the imagery. All in all, these awards have lots of creatives ready to see your work and you should want them to see your talent.
Luke Li, Creative Lead / Art Director, IKEA, Stockholm
Production Paradise shows your work directly to your potential clients in great quality! As a freelancer I find this tool absolutely essential - it makes you visible and helps you to position yourself in the market. I have been with Production Paradise for years and the feedback from clients is very positive. Definitely recommend it for all professionals who want to show their work worldwide! You can gain visibility and new contacts.
Susana Sánchez, Fashion & Hair Stylist, Barcelona
We love Production Paradise and find it very helpful, we often used it before being a member to source information about other creative companies and services around the world. We needed to be part of it to get the best exposure worldwide and we believe that this made the difference we were looking for.
Simona Bonelli, Frida Productions, Mexico City
We are very happy to be present in Production Paradise. We get new clients from all over the world with our listing. The team is very helpful and Paul is the perfect person to advises us. Thank you!

“Dan Bigelow about Production Paradise”
Dan Bigelow, Corporate & Industrial Photographer, New York
Production Paradise is for me both a resource and an outlet. It keeps me in touch with what is going on in the world of photography and image creation while at the same time letting me reach out to that world so that I can bring something to the party. It is an amazing time to be a creator and Production Paradise offers a showcase of what is best, brightest and most on that oh-so-seductive cutting edge.
Dan Couto, Photographer & CGI Artist, Toronto
“Sarah Thompson about Production Paradise”
Sarah Thompson, Art Buyer - Creative Blood Agency, London
We are so happy that only after 3 months of being a member of Production Paradise we connected with a big client to produce their big campaign for S/S 2018, in one of the stunning Greek islands! It was such a huge success and we are sure that this client will work with us again, not only in Greece but also in Sweden. We have had many requests so far thanks to being a member of Production Paradise and we will remain a member thanks to the fact that we get more clients and brands seeing us, and we get the amazing opportunity to expand our client list! Thank you Production Paradise!
Melina Zapris, ArtBlue Productions, Stockholm
Production Paradise is an excellent platform for both sharing your work with a global audience, as well as being constantly inspired and informed by those within the industry. For me, the Food & Drink Spotlights are particularly relevant and successful.
James Murphy, Photographer, London
I am present on Production Paradise since some years and I have had the pleasure of meeting with staff members in New York two years ago during a portfolio review. We have exchanged a lot. The team has the advantage to be present both in Europe and the United States. The quality is their primary focus. Because of Production Paradise my work is known outside Europe which allowed me to get some assignments from foreign countries. Graceful the directory, I also found easy to locate renters of studio equipment when I am outside France. I must say that I have been convinced by the highest quality of the creative people who are present on Production Paradise.
Arnaud Février, Photographer, Paris
“Julie van Damme about Production Paradise”
Julie van Damme, EuroConnection, Cape Town
I am a big fan of Production Paradise. I'm using the website for creating mood boards and to get inspiration for new photo looks in all different photography categories.

Production Paradise has been an excellent marketing resource, helping to increase exposure to brands and creatives that would have been impossible otherwise.

We believe that Production Paradise is a very high quality information platform so the benefits of being a member are more than evident.

“Richard Brekelmans about Production Paradise”
Richard Brekelmans, W Hotel, Barcelona
Production Paradise is our sales channel on the Web. Google links and the SEO efforts of competitors make it difficult for our customers to find us. PP offers the professional solution, not only in terms of search but also as a quality way to be presented. PP provides really good consultation, with pleasant contact over the phone completing the whole picture. The possibilities and reach as well as the competent advice as to how I should present my work really helped our daily business - we have seen a real increase in both national and international requests. Bluestudios and our photographers rely on the only quality addition to our own website - Production Paradise.
Dieter Sieg, Bluestudios, Hamburg
Production Paradise offers me the opportunity to show my work in a global way to a wide range of potential customers. My images reach the people who they need to reach, and it is a great tool to expand clients anywhere in the world and receive very exciting work assignments!
Alberto G. Puras, Photographer, Madrid
Production Paradise is one of the only 'consistent' publicity platforms around. I find its strength in reaching a worldwide client base is invaluable for showcasing recent work (and sometimes unseen 'not so recent' work) which then links directly to my website. Production Paradise is the only place I advertise.
Andy Seymour, Photographer, London
I've been with Production Paradise for several years. I never miss the Spotlight on Lifestyle Photography and the feedback from clients is always 100% positive.
Nick Daly, Photographer, London
Production Paradise is one of the best resources I have found to keep informed about the latest trends in advertising and to know what other creatives and competitors are doing. The Online Magazines are a true inspiration and ideal for demonstrating moods. I would recommend bookmarking and using the website to everyone who works in the advertising industry!
Tomás Caetano, Vice President Global Brand Marketing, Volvo Car Group, Stockholm
Production Paradise helps keep us in the front of people's minds in the industry. They have a consistently proactive marketing strategy and it's good to have someone else talking about us as well as ourselves!
Lisa Pritchard, LPA, London
I am thrilled with finding Production Paradise - within our first month of joining we received two new clients - now those are results I can get behind!
Traci Terrick, Poppy Creative Agency, San Francisco
Production Paradise is very useful to find artists and professional people within the advertising market and I especially like their Spotlight magazine. If I have to work in a different territory, like South Africa or Russia, I don’t have that many links and contacts, so Production Paradise is a very good database and starting point to find the right people to do a professional job.
Giorgio Mugnai, Hello-Lola, Barcelona
Production Paradise is the best resource for me in our industry! I’m looking forward to many more years working with them. It just works – it’s direct, it’s creative and I like the team behind it, and the whole concept. Most of the new contacts that I found lately are from Production Paradise!
Julie van Damme, EuroConnection, Cape Town
Production Paradise is the very best there is for promoting my services. You are always in good company and many of my clients look forward to receiving the latest Showcase or Spotlight - it's 'always a pleasure' to get the latest mail out in their inbox. After my last Showcase appearance I was approached by an Animator based in Stockholm and have since worked on three short animations, great stuff!
Barry Makariou, Photographer, London
Production Paradise has been an extremely useful tool in advertising our services and also in our search for extra expertise. A great online directory and one we refer to frequently.
Kim & Jodi, Process Photographers’ Agents, London
I am happy with my presence on Production Paradise. I gained a Dubai fashion label as a new client - they found me through Production Paradise and I am now already working for them for the second time. The first job was in Mykonos, and this year I will be going to shoot in Barcelona.
Harry Vorsteher, Photographer, Dusseldorf
I must say that over the course of the last four years or so, I’ve had the pleasure of placing my work on the Production Paradise website through various Showcases & Spotlights. I’ve found the reach of Production Paradise through their vast data base of active art directors, key agency personal and photo agents around the globe as exactly what my business needs to grow in a tough market. I’ve picked up clients in places such as China, India & the USA and I have also solidified my standing within the local market in Australia. The personalised service I've received through Production Paradise's team such as reminders to update work and some very appealing offers is just first-class. I’d challenge anyone to find a better website/blog to place their work on for maximum exposure within our industry.
Darren Capp, Photographer, Sydney
We have been advertising on Production Paradise for 8 years now and we are continuously increasing our budget. Each year we compare how many clicks and requests we get from the different resources and ads and Production Paradise is the number one in all disciplines. We notice an increase in requests whenever we appear in a Showcase or Spotlight Magazine, because our international clients receive and most importantly read them
Hans Dornseif, CONTRA Service Productions International, London
Only a couple of days after having a one-to-one meeting with Production Paradise, and going live on their site, I was approached by two major agencies, one of which offered me a brand new campaign shooting with Leo Messi! Results don't come much faster than that.
Christopher Willan, Photographer, Barcelona
Production Paradise is mainly used by creatives who are subscribed to Spotlight and Showcase Magazines. It provides a perfect combination; showing the most up-to-date photo and shooting styles, and at the same time giving a wide overview of the directions and competitive field of the client. Inspiration, I think, is very important in our business. Understanding cutting-edge creativity and seeing the work of really great photographers, great directors, that´s very important for us to know. It ensures that what we are doing is cutting-edge and has a modern look. At the same time of course you have to know your competitors, you have to know what they are doing, you need inspiration and a competitive review every day. I think Production Paradise is the perfect combination of inspiration and effectiveness, and really a tool that every ad guy should use, of course, agencies but at the same time production companies to optimise the complete process.
Philipp Bierbaum, Damn & Bierbaum, Frankfurt
We have had significant response and a job coming from our promotion on Production Paradise. Thank you so much, I am more than happy.
Maree Mitchell, Agent & Producer, Title Artist Management, Sydney
Production Paradise has proved the most valuable directory for me. During my 15 years' experience in the photo industry, I have had the opportunity to try quite a few directories (both printed and online), but the essentials offered by Production Paradise - the quality of Showcases, complete profiles, simple search functions and easy access – are incomparable to the others. Through Showcase and Spotlight I have access to an extended global network that allows me to reach the most important industry players.
Anush Amirkhanian, Avocado Artists, Moscow
I have been a well established UK agent for many years and over the years have tried all types of advertising, Production Paradise stands out from the "rest" this is the only form of advertising I do at present for the simple reason it "works"!
Sharon, Sharon Brandman Agency, London
My collaboration with Production Paradise began in May 2011 and has proved a very fruitful experience, as during this past year I have been contacted by many international photographers and foreign production crews. The precision and timing of Showcase and Spotlight magazines is perfect and provides a legitimate working tool for everyone in the industry who needs to showcase their work and be represented on an international level. I highly recommend becoming part of Production Paradise's online networks.
Valeria Orlando, Make-up Artist, Rome
Production Paradise works, it looks great and is acknowledged by clients to be the go-to source for photographers and production, especially when shooting overseas. The format is consistent and the standard of work is high. It's a great place to showcase my latest work and directs loads of traffic to my site.
Patrick Harrison, Photographer, London
I must say how grateful I am for having joined Production Paradise two years ago. I've received a number of quotes for jobs here in Sao Paulo, some of them came to life, others didn't, but as long as there is a good pace on contacting me, it will always be worth the investment.
Diego, Diego Lezama, Sao Paulo
I wanted to write about my amazing experience working with Production Paradise. I had gotten your information from an email blast I received sometime last year. While on a trip to Spain, I got a request for a bid from an advertising company for a shoot in Miami. The senior producer said the bid had to be in by the next day! I was thankful for being 8 hours ahead, but I had to get all my numbers and communicate with local hires, so I decided to go on to Production Paradise and look-up Miami. I found all the makeup artists, assistants, and locations and catering straight from the site. I communicated with every one immediately and got responses so quickly. Not only were they professional, but helpful and most important timely! Everyone that I used from the site gave me both confidence and professionalism, and that was even before I got to my shoot. I was so thankful there’s a site that is so easy to use and that those listed had clearly been vetted. It made the bid and job possible and I would recommend Production Paradise to all photographers and filmmakers needing to get staff for a shoot. Thanks Production Paradise Miami!
Ana Gibert, Photography, Los Angeles
We had a client in the studio recently who said the reason they went for D-light was because their UK-based photographer had seen our studio on Production Paradise and wanted to shoot here. I just thought I’d let you know as I was delighted to hear this!
Kenny, Studio Manager, D-light Studios, Dublin
I didn't know Production Paradise two years ago - a photographer recommended it as the best website for my company, and ultimately what photographers use to find production jobs. What I like best about Production Paradise is the nice and clean presentation and functionality to find things easily.
Dominique, Yucatan Productions, Mexico City
If you're not in, you're out. I'd rather see myself next to my competition than not at all, so Production Paradise is a no brainer for us.
Karl Crick, Karmer Setbuilding, London
I didn't hesitate to renew my subscription to Production Paradise this year, all the worthwhile competition has a listing too so that should speak volumes.
Andy Knight, Set Designer, London
Production Paradise put us in-touch with a Turkish production company and the subsequent production went very well indeed. The team was very nice and highly professional. Thank you for all your help!
Birgit, Mercedes-Benz Magazine
Production Paradise has more than paid off for us. It's obvious that many requests and subsequent jobs from abroad would have never reached us without being listed. We really love the priority listing option too!
Kristina Tulinius, AprilMay Photo Production, Berlin
When I first found out about www.productionparadise.com I realised immediately how useful this page could be for our Art buying. The website is structured very well, which makes it easy to find exactly what I need.
Julia Gaentzsch, KNSK, Hamburg
I took out my first feature with Production Paradise in time for the Toronto Showcase released in February, 2013. Within two days I had received an email from a freelance designer, working for Kijiji, who was looking for a car photographer to shoot a number of off-road vehicles for a series of ads. I also received three requests for book drop offs to agencies downtown. Production Paradise really does work, its subscription base for clients across the world is genuinely superb and in my case, it hit just the right people. It's always hard relocating ones business - I moved from the UK to Canada five years ago - but PP is a great service that adds to my own marketing. I shall continue to use them.
Nik, Nik Milner Photography, Toronto
I was commissioned to do a large advertising job by a company based in Seattle after they saw my feature on Production Paradise. I knew it would be good to advertise with PP but didn't think that work would come from so far a-field - and so quickly! I've already been commissioned again for another advertising shoot by the same company this year, so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Production Paradise.
Karen Thomas, Photographer, London
I think first and last it's that I believe that PP is the best place to be listed on this kind of production industry. It is easy and clear - straight to the point listing website that is comprised of quality, Not quantity and I like it a lot. Today we are not wasting our time on reaching a lot. We want to go to one place and feel safe to find all kind of service sections and talents at the same place. A good example of this is when I got a proposal from Vogue and they asked me where I am listed to see how solid my company is and how trustworthy we really are. I send a link to our PP profile and got the green light the same minute.
Inga Lisa Salons, ArcticON
Getting an endorsement from me is as hard as me having a day without a ‘glass’ of wine. But, I think Production Paradise is a great way of keeping in touch with the industry. My current projects are seen and I am getting those important hits on my website.
Lorentz Gullachsen, Photographer, London
It was good to see the production paradise e-mail on London agents confirming that in the time of ever increasing stock and declining budgets there are still a bunch of people operating with the same aim. I think the e-mail reminds us that all photographers and agents have to stick together and promote ourselves as much as we can at this time. This a perfect reminder as to what is going on at the moment especially to new young art directors who at this time seem to find it harder to commission interesting work because of the situation with client and management power. In some cases this may be the only way of letting agencies and art directors see what's new. Any way of promoting photography is fine by me!
David Stewart, Photographer, London
We have had a good response thanks to Production Paradise. You reach clients abroad that we don’t normally reach, some of whom have contacted us regarding location scouting. We hope we can continue working together!
Regan Watson, Medita Locations, Barcelona
Visits to my website increase the moment Showcase is released, and 95% of these visits are international.
Pau Palacios, Photographer, Barcelona
In our search for ‘alternative’ advertising, Production Paradise came below the Fuji airship in its effectiveness, but significantly above the London Underground posters. A great site with many hits to our link.
Vincent McCartney, Holborn Studios, London
Being featured in Production Paradise has seriously increased the traffic to my website, which is great, but more importantly I also know that this has turned into work - which is what it's all about!
Graham Atkins-Hughes, Photographer, London
Production Paradise is great. The website is among my favourites because it is extremely helpful when searching for talent, especially photographers.
Sabine Waltz, RTS Rieger Team, Stuttgart
I have found Production Paradise to be a good marketing service, the first time I used them i noticed an immediate increase to the visits on my website.
Jobe Lawrenson, Photographer, London
Our feature and directory listing seem to be working well; traffic has increased consistently as opposed to just a huge spike one day and then back to normal two days later. Apart from direct contact or via Google, Production Paradise is now the main way people find us and that's great as it is probably the right people. It's the first directory we have joined that has actually done all this, so I'm glad we went into the feature.
Sean Breithaupt, Studioseventyseven Photography, Dublin
Within a month of my feature appearing in Spotlight People and Lifestyle Photography, I received a request from an advertising agency in New York. They mentioned seeing my work through Production Paradise and asked for my portfolio. As a photographer based in Germany, I'm pleased to know that my work is seen by professionals in other countries thanks to your network.
Dominik Mentzos, Photographer, Frankfurt
Hamburg TAKE Agency represents international photographers throughout Europe and we constantly look for the best freelancers and new opportunities in the market. With Production Paradise we have a network that helps fulfil our needs concerning high-end photography. Additionally, we have gained requests from outside Germany thanks to Production Paradise. As a result of our strong online activity, over the past weeks we have gained many international requests that have lead to bookings for our photographers.
Simon Reinitzer, Take Agency, Hamburg
Production Paradise has increased our direct bookings into South Africa and we're also starting to receive direct requests from other countries too, which is great seeing as we're based in Cape Town. Production Paradise really is a fantastic tool to show and market your business.“
Steffi Freier, Ice Model Management, Cape Town
Two days on Showcase and already my web traffic has almost doubled! I've even been contacted by a potential client. Thanks Production Paradise!
Margaret Stepien, Photographer, Barcelona
As soon as my images and profile had been published in Spotlight magazine, my website traffic tripled. I can truly say that it has brought a lot more potential interest to my work, including being picked up and mentioned by professional bloggers from inside the industry.
Dorit Thies, Photographer, Los Angeles
I really enjoyed receiving your latest magazine today. The Stockholm Showcase looks fantastic. I usually ignore most newsletters, but yours are a highlight in this industry, especially because they show exactly what we all live for and what we want to see more of: photos, photos, photos! Plus, there are some great features and some really exciting locations.
Marc Lethenet, Leica
Thanks to the new Production Paradise marketplace I quickly sold my equipment to colleagues in Italy and Russia. It was a really easy and stress-free process, and didn't cost me anything.
Vanessa Christmann, Photographer, Hamburg
I'm so excited to have booked a new Seattle-based American client, and it's all thanks to Production Paradise!
Petra Wiebe, Stylist, Munich
I'm thrilled to know that the Production Paradise marketplace allows us to insert ads! This is fantastic and is exactly what the industry needed.
Anja Oltmanns, Art Director, Hamburg
In this industry, where respecting deadlines is essential, being able to check out locations or do a pre-casting/production through a web-address, saves a lot of time, and having a trustworthy source for these addresses is of great help. Production Paradise provides experienced advice. Not many people share their address book like this.
Filippa Lidholm, Very Style Guides
Production Paradise has become an essential way for LS Productions to market their services and gain work through this fantastic international platform. Our presence on the Production Paradise website has led to several enquires from our online portfolio and hundreds of visits to our website. The quality of clients and portfolios is an inspiration and we are proud to be associated with this unique and passionate company.
Katy, LS Productions
As a member of Production Paradise, I'm especially happy with the increasing number of visits we get directly from productionparadise.com. What's really remarkable is how long these visitors stay in our website; the average is more than four minutes. After a Spotlight is sent with one of our features, the number of clicks considerably increases.
Steffen Brünner, PX Group, Hamburg
We have had an entry on Production Paradise since the first Showcase Vienna back in 2010. It is an important platform for us to acquire jobs from international customers. The gallery is also another reason that we like Production Paradise, as it provides a beautiful way to present our latest rental equipment twice a year.
Thomas Klingenböck, Digitalkameraverleih, Vienna
I'm always happy to receive a new edition of Spotlight from Production Paradise as it's extremely helpful as an overview of the current photographic scene. I've also made contacts that have led to very successful collaborations. I recommended to a photographer that he should show his work in Spotlight, and he received enquiries amazingly fast. I look forward to the next issue!
Stefan Kinzel, Publicis, Frankfurt
After learning a recent photo shoot came through my feature in Showcase Germany, I feel confident that Production Paradise is the right platform to promote my work.
Thomas Motta, Photographer, Hamburg
Without Production Paradise, people would easily forget about us. Croatia is still an uncovered gem, bordering so many established European production destinations, yet it's only a matter of time before the country takes its place amongst the rest. To be listed on PP without a country specific directory means clients are interested to find out more, particularly in terms of the variety of locations we have to offer in Croatia. As pioneers in our local market of some 10 years, we're happy to be listed on PP as a means of bringing this experience to the international market.

For anyone working in the advertising production industry who is serious about international exposure, Production Paradise is the first and foremost port of call. I have been approached from every continent as a result of my promotion in Production Paradise Showcase and Spotlight magazines, and highly recommend them - not just as a portfolio tool, but also as a production resource for wherever you might want to consider a shoot. Keep up the good work Production Paradise!

My first feature with Production Paradise landed on the cover of September's Showcase Brazil, which makes me very glad as so many art buyers and big companies worldwide will get to know my work. It has been an amazing experience since first getting in touch with PP. The staff are very attentive and I am incredibly thankful to be associated with the network!

To be where the big international budgets are, you have to be on Production Paradise.

Being a Production Paradise member helps me keep my name and images out there and lets people find me who otherwise, maybe, wouldn’t.

Production Paradise is really great to see who’s out there when you’re flying into a new city looking for a team.
Henryk Lobaczewski, Photographer, Sydney
Production Paradise has consistently been a generous contributor of traffic to my site, as well as an excellent production resource when trying to execute a job in a foreign market. Having a list of known rental studios, equipment houses, etc saves a ton of time when assembling a shoot that’s not in one’s backyard.
Nicholas Duers, Photographer, New York
I like Production Paradise’s international network and reputation.

Production Paradise has been a useful tool to make Light Rental Canarias known in a wider, global way across the photo production industry. We've had a definite increase in visitors who also spend longer on the site, as well as more direct clients from across Europe and North America. We think Production Paradise is a useful tool and an interesting platform to access many of the professionals working in our industry. Having a fast and convenient way to access professional contact information, new work, reliable photo production companies, photographers and so on, all around the world, is a real advantage.

Having moved around a number of different countries over the last 10 years, Production Paradise has been of huge benefit to me as it means clients can find me wherever I am. The website also generates new leads/clients all the time, especially when you are in a new country and hunting for work. I have had jobs booked in places like Beijing, Tokyo, Munich and other European cities because of my listing, so I have been very happy with the service.

For the studio, our involvement with Production Paradise has been about exposure to new markets and new clients. We have received increased exposure, new connections with industry professionals, and sound advice on marketing. Curating new portfolios for the different projects we have done with Production Paradise has been a great opportunity for us to re-examine our marketing portfolios and examine the markets in which we are advertising.

Production Paradise is a very trendy and at the same time very useful directory to all those who seek varied and accredited companies. PP is also an excellent guarantee for those who have to work outside of their country of origin. Production Paradise offers an impeccable service by presenting the companies it represents in the best possible way, and with such great style!
Silvia Brusati, Lupetta 5 & BelowTheLine, Milan
To be part of an international community of creatives and production people is the most useful element of membership for me. I recently had a shoot in Los Angeles with an agency that focuses mainly on the Hispanic market. The agency worked with an art buyer and producer who had just moved from London and somehow has managed to reach me through her connection with Production Paradise. I love that it has become such a global marketplace and production community. PP is also a great research tool to find production support anywhere in the world.
Vegar Abelsnes, Photographer, Oslo
Production Paradise has proved to be a revolutionary tool for our agency - right from identifying talented visual artists, to understanding key logistics for international productions. The refined content and the quality of members are a definite plus on this network as compared with competitors.PP has been instrumental for us in signing contracts with some of our key visual artists whom we represent/manage, and we also have had a handful of good international queries coming through the network. The additional benefit of creative network VIMITY has been another fantastic tool for our business! We look forward to associating with PP in a more planned manner to further position our brand nationally and internationally.

I have enjoyed being connected to creatives whose work I deeply admire and also the wealth of traffic I’ve seen. Sometimes, it’s nice to have a platform where briefs from the other side of the planet can reach you.
Courtney Dailey, Photographer, Los Angeles
Production Paradise helps me to project my work. Then it’s seen around the world, and people call you from different countries. The website is very useful – the way it’s done, the dynamic of it. You can find anything you want – that’s what makes Production Paradise good. I use it to get clients, to get promoted, to get my name around.
