Welcome to our debut issue of Showcase California, brought to you by Production Paradise. This issue features some of the leading creatives and companies working out of Los Angeles, San Francisco and other cities from the Golden State.

More creative professionals and facilities for photographic and film production are available in our Los Angeles Photo and Film directories and San Francisco Photo and Film directories.

Brands and publications including Mazda, Camelbak, ESPN Magazine, Corvette, Toyota, among others, have trusted these professionals with their latest advertising campaigns and editorial shoots.

Be sure to catch our recommended events:

  • The Fahey/Klein gallery presents a selection of photographs from the queen of female sensuality, photographer Ellen von Unwerth. In her exhibition, 'Bombshell', the works on display revel in von Unwerth’s experimentation with archetypes and stereotypes that result in images that are spontaneous, playful, and alive. Until 29th April.
  • The San Francisco International Film Festival (SFFILM Festival), the longest-running film festival in the Americas, features a range of marquee premieres, international competitions, compelling documentaries, short and mid-length films, live music performances, and dazzling red carpet events. From 13th to 23rd April.
