USA: Location Scout USA

Ricardo Capdepont has been scouting since 1996 and has a passion for travel and detail. Fortunate to have worked in 32 States of the Union, as well as Canada, Argentina and Chile, Ricardo was born in Argentina and educated at Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara, California.

Based in California, which has the largest variety of locations and some of the best weather in the country, he specialises in a combination of good photographic composition, clear understanding of client needs, and a sound knowledge of production logistics.

With a unique scouting system, files are posted daily to the company's website. The system is designed to allow for virtually an unlimited amount of files, while keeping them organised and easily searchable by shot or layout. Art director, photographer and all people collaborating on a job are able to add comments, turn files on or off, thus allowing other team members to follow the process without being limited by different time zones.

Clients include American Express, Audi, Apple, Cadillac, Camel, Canon, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dunlop, Goodyear, Honda, Hyundai, Kodak, Lexus, L.L. Bean, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Progressive Insurance, Subaru, Toyota, Victory, Volvo, VW, The US Coast Guard, and many others.
