I had the good fortune to work with Catherine on a large pharmaceutical shoot in Paris. Both my rep and I found her to be extremely accessible, fair, honest and thorough... and she brought a healthy dose of positive energy to the project which is always so appreciated. She was a real treat to work with, and I look forward to collaborating with her again. Thanks Catherine! ~Eric Schmidt, Photographer
Here’s one of the best kept secrets in the South…Cat Schramm is a production goddess and rock star. Is it that she’s covered me on some of my biggest client shoots from NYC and LA? Yes!! And the agency people love her after! There is no greater testimony than that. Where else do you find someone willing to work all hours of the day and night, keeps everyone in giggles, knows your favorite snack, can make a $6 budget feel like $10 and proudly bombard you with dog photo’s of furchild Kizzy. Her crew genuinely loves her and will pull out stops to deliver…which is why I love her too. ~Scott Montgomery, Photographer/Director
Cat and I have worked together on many projects of varying levels of difficulty. She is always composed, always ahead of me in preventing problems before they become problems, is creative in her own right, often adding to decisions I'm making that only make things better. I could not recommend anyone more than I do her. On top of everything she is a warm human being and great to hang out with. You will never do wrong by having her involved in your production. ~Michael Back @ Flying Frog Media Photographer / Director
Catherine was our key production coordinator throughout two big shoots for us building a library of photography for the inaugural campaign coming out of our brand new ad agency. At every step of the way, she made sure everything was nailed down . . . on our side and on the production side. Each of the shoots had a lot of moving parts -- multiple locations, lot of casting, lot of wardrobe, lot of everything -- and it was tremendous to see how well it all went. We credit Catherine for a big chunk of that great experience.
~Mark Lantz, Creative Director Factory Detroit
I worked with Catherine on several national print and integrated media productions where the Clients had global marketing and advertising requirements. Her international and national experience allows her to work seamlessly with major market agencies and big crews. She understands and values the complexity of my own wardrobe department.Catherine is an outstanding producer who thinks out-of-the-box, a go-getter, and a no-nonsense person with a positive attitude.
~Elie Serraino, Stylist
Truly, one of the most proficient, accomplished photography producers I've EVER worked with during my 25+ years of working in the advertising/marketing industry.
~Susann Hodges, Producer
Catherine is a dedicated producer. I've worked with her in-house and as an independent vendor and can attest to her enthusiasm and professionalism as both a producer and rep. She is fiercely detail-oriented and organized, two of the most important skills required to execute successful productions.
~Natalie Ogura, Stylist
Wearing many behind-the-scenes hats, I gained insight that balances the challenges & goals of each individual commercial or creative entity that I represent. My passion for a smooth production starts with the artists & talent who have been skillfully guided through a personal promotion campaign getting them through that win & production. Whether promoting an artist or artistic effort, generating bids & treatments, creative consulting, or sourcing photographers & directors for agencies & clients, I know that directing the blood flow towards the good of the creative whole is at the heartbeat of longevity & success
