Brite Productions Latin America Buenos Aires photo production
Brite Productions believes clients are the best qualified to describe its work and dedication:
"When it comes to planning and conducting a photo shoot in Argentina, there is only one company who you should look to for help and guidance. In this industry, it is unusual to find a group of such kind, professional, and passionate individuals. They continuously went above and beyond the call of duty and, as a result, the shoot was a tremendous success. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Brite Productions Argentina and hope to work with them again in the near future".
Kim Quicksilver, Account Manager, JWT New York.
"From initial contact in the UK to shooting on the ground in Argentina, it was a pleasure to work with Brite Productions. The communications and planning pre shoot were very thorough and installed huge confidence before arrival. Brite's local knowledge was spot on. The locations were perfect and the professionalism with which Guille operated was first class. The company's care and attention enabled us to get on with our job without any hassle. The “whatever you want” attitude throughout our time in Argentina was amazing, and we came in under budget! I wouldn’t hesitate to shoot again with these guys and couldn’t recommend them highly enough".
Jeremy Baxter, Creative Manager, Fat Face London.
