Arpen Productions founder Rebecca Schatten’s love of photography drew her to production early in life. After graduating college she began her professional career in NYC managing one of the most prestigious still life photography studios in the city. Over the next decade she produced, cast, prop styled, set built and fetched coffee for some of the biggest clients in the industry. After coming to the realization that the NYC dating pool was in need of some serious chlorine, she moved out to L.A. to start her own production company, get married, win some awards and have 2 awesome kids. Rebecca has made a name for herself in both NYC and L.A. as an award winning producer and mentor, having produced some of the most prominent national and international photo shoots for clients such as American Express, Coca-Cola, GAP, HP, Marriott, Merck, Nike, Delta and Cisco, just to name a few. And according to her kids, she makes the best banana pancakes….EVER!
