Miriam Kreinin Souccar, staff writer for Crain’s NY Business, writes wonderfully informative articles about the business side of the entertainment industry. This summer she reached out to talk with me about my niche business working with locations that want their moment in any one of the more than 60 shows that are currently filming in New York. We all know that it’s an $8.7 billion business that employs over 350,000 people who edit, build sets, provide vintage cars, cater to the crews, sell lumber…and provide locations! You name it, the reach of film and TV production is long.
…the real hotshots are the film crews that create magic on TV and in film.
So we talked together about my business, and when they said “Photography” I ran to a makeup artist to make sure I looked stunning. I also let the photographer, Buck Ennis, make the decision about where to do the shoot. He chose First Presbyterian Church, and relaxed me during the shoot by talking about food–one of my favorite topics. Along with filming!
