Chevron Richmond CA,with mcgarrybowen and Richard Schultz

Another adventure with Mr. Schultz and the always amazing to be with Jamie Appelbaum.

This time however, the Team at PPP departed early to reach out to the community of real businesses in the Richmond CA area and interview, video and photograph all sorts of different types of people for this unique project.

Always a pleasure to work with Richard Schulz and this was no exception, the complete team was amazing and we had lots of great moments on this shoot.


Jaguar with Alex Howe

We took to the roads of the North East with Alex Howe and the team from FPCreative out of London to create images for Jaguar. Mick Breitenstein, one of our Producers helped manage the team on the road. He traveled with Alex’s team and along with Ray Forbes of Boston, kept track of some crazy logistics, weather and locations.

RIM with Bill Gallery

Nice to hear from the home country now and then. When RIM Canada called and Gavyn asked us to pull together a lifestyle shoot in the Tri State area, we were more than happen to put our team to work on creating lots of great images for them.

Again, both Mick, Gylaine and even my Partner Scott in LA jumped in with logistical support to pull off another flawless production from Planet PrePro.

Bill Gallery was just the nicest guy to work with and really captured some great imagery for BlackBerry.

New York, Atlantic City & Maine


Sometimes we experience “Cosmic Irony” on shoots.  This one was one of those times.

The location in Maine was Cadillac Mountain Road.

New York, Atlantic City, and Maine provided great locations for this latest shoot with Jan Steinhilber and Fallon.

TARGET – Margaret Lampert

Margaret Lampert asked us to produce a TARGET shoot for her in the suburbs of NJ.

Lots of fun with the kids in a school for two days.

As usual, Margaret was great to work with and the the kids just loved her.

CHASE with mcgarrybowen and Rob Howard

This was our first time working with Rob Howard, turns out he is a fellow Canadian and super nice guy.

Best part of this production was not really the shoot, but being able to hang with the Creative Director Melissa Evans at the opening night game with the SF Giants. It was an amazing night and there’s nothing like sitting 2 rows behind the home team dugout. Cold beers, hotdogs and a great game.

This was my first time working with Travis the AB at mcgarrybowen, really great guy.

The shoot of course was fun thanks to all the great personalities on set.

Melissa, you ROCK girl!

Chopper (Travelers Insurance)


The location we used for this shoot was perfect, the owners of the house were incredible. Sometimes you meet people on location that you feel like you’ve known before.

Then there was the complete professionalism of the animal handlers from Studio Animal Services and the “Star” (Chopper) who hit his mark every time.

The photo crew arrived and went to work to get the shot done on time and on budget.

The crew from Fallon feel like old friends and John Offenbach did it again (that’s why Fallon keeps coming back).

How can a producer ask for more?

Chevron Pittsburgh with mcgarrybowen

We traveled to Pittsburgh with mcgarrybowen and the always amazing Jamie Applebaum to spend 4 days shooting in various communities. This was our first project with the very talented Richard Schultz and we became fast friends. Nothing like working with true professionals. Of course it did not hurt to have an incredible creative Director, Melissa Evans, with us.

Pfizer – Euro RSCG and Margaret Lampert

Feb finds the NY Planet PrePro Team working around the clock on a crazy Pfizer job with Margaret Lampert. I think we had to shoot 2 billion shots in 5 days with video as well. Matthew Turley also joined the team to work on post production while on the set of this print and video shoot.

Homewood Suites in Vancouver with Doug Menuez

Doug Menuez and Publicis traveled  to Canada to shoot alongside a TV Production on a soundstage in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Patti Zarkin from Publicis who we have worked with forever and admire tremendously, asked us to produce this print campaign for Homewood Suites. Of course Vancouver is my hometown, and it was nice to see family after the shoot.
