Melanie Trombley Chicago photo production

Melanie Trombley has been working as a producer in Chicago for over seven years. She accidentally entered the commercial photography industry in 1996, building sets in the midst of a tour break as merchandising coordinator for the band Sebadoh.

Realising photography was better matched to her frenetic pace than the Graphic Design degree she was pursuing, she switched gears to focus on all aspects of behind the camera work. From casting and prop buying, figuring out how to air freight in 1000 square yards of sod from California to Chicago for a Sears lawnmower shoot, to planning domestic and international shoots for clients like Abbott Labs, CDW and National Geographic, Melanie can handle the details for any size production with grace and aplomb - on time and under budget.

Recent clients include NutraSweet, County of DuPage Hospital and Follets.
