Boutique hotels, beach-side villas, island nature parks or alternatively, frozen lakes, log cabins, snowy trails — they are all locations serviced throughout 2009-2010 by Montreal Photography Production.
Beauchemin d’Eze, the umbrella company for Montreal Photography Production; Montreal Locations Scouts; Montreal Photographers; Dominican Republic Locations Scouts, in business since 1984, provides Canadian and international clients with turn-key locations for film, TV commercials, video and still photo “shoots”.
According to Michelle d’Eze, the company’s CEO, “Over the long winter months, the demand for sun destinations is very high. In the Caribbean, the days are longer, and the natural light is ideal for fashion shoots and other outdoor scenarios. That is why we deploy separate teams of professionals: some in the Caribbean and the others to service projects requiring typical winter settings in Quebec.”
The dual-front operation has paid off for the company. To date, it has worked on more than 50 projects including, TV reality shows, catalogues, magazine features, films, video and TV commercials.
The firm offers an extensive range of support services that can be booked individually or as a complete package. These include location scouting, set managing/coordinating, requisitioning and processing of permits, casting, photography, studios rentals, equipment rentals, accommodations, catering, transportation (automobiles, boats, helicopters, Winnebago rentals) and all other production needs. Moreover, the company handles all the “nitty-gritty” tasks that are so time-consuming and bothersome for a producer working abroad – – tasks such as customs, work permits and on-site logistics.
The company is headed by Michelle d’Eze who has more than 25 years experience in multimedia and Serge Beauchemin, an award-winning photographer/photo editor. The Montreal-based team is widely known and highly regarded for exceptional expertise in advertising and editorial as well as in film, television and video production .
In just the last two years, the firm has quadrupled its business volume, with contracts from international clients including Oxelo for Decathlon ( France); W Magazine (Celine Dion photo shoot), Volkswagen (Routan), The DDB Worldwide Advertising Group (Tourism Canada), CQ Magazine (Tourism Montreal) Elle Magazine (USA and Europe), Grice, Ready-to-wear,Geneva; Young and Rubicam Paris (Kiabi), Garraud-Paris, Oscar de la Renta, Esperanza for Fleisher Film , Telecom for CNN, Mitsubishi, Bikini Village and other clients of the same caliber.
“Adds Michelle d’Eze, “Our Caribbean office gives us the ability to offer our budget-conscious clients considerable savings on accommodations, transportation and support staff. Furthermore, after three years on the ground, we know our way around permitting, customs and all the little nuances of interacting with local suppliers. In a nutshell, we deliver an international standard of service while at the same time, enabling our clients to benefit from the scenery and relaxed atmosphere of one of the great vacation destinations of the world.”
