Picture This has been in business since 1984. Its founders included the current President and CEO, Perry Loveridge. Not only is he an executive, but Perry is also the primary event consultant, producer, director of photography, and strategist. The current COO/CMO is Sari Loveridge, who joined the company in 1990. At the time, Sari came on board as Marketing Director and Production Coordinator. Picture This has grown by leaps and bounds throughout the years, which means it has had to relocate 5 times, and add facilities. As of right now, Picture This has three facilities in and around Portland. The main building of Picture This boasts 3000 square feet of sound and production space. Across the street is where the company houses its rental video production equipment, along with a space for post-production work. The third facility is a large 5000 square foot complex that is used for office space and for storing live event production equipment.

There were no other Production Services companies in Oregon and possibly the Pacific Northwest when Picture This started out. We filled a specific niche that was not being filled by anyone else. That niche was providing top-quality equipment, crew, rentals, an event services. Most production companies aim to have a small number of large clients. Picture This, however, went at things a little differently. We wanted to be diverse and flexible. Not only could we have those big clients, but we also focused on hiring the best crew staff and providing the highest quality professional equipment. Since we started, many others have entered the industry trying to mimic our success, but many have failed. We simply have the best staff and the best inventory, bar none.

These all need dedicated experts as directors of photography and audio engineers. They may also require makeup services and assistants. For these types of productions, we can provide top-quality cameras with state of the art lenses, lighting, and audio equipment. If the production is particularly large, we have grip vans and trucks for use as well.

We also have a wide range of available lenses, such as the Canon HJ40X10B Wide Angle Lens, the Canon Cine-Servo 17-120mm Zoom Lens, and the Canon CNE Primes Series. We always talk to our clients to fully understand their needs so that we can make the best recommendation for cameras and lenses to get the results they want. Not only that, but we coordinate and prepare the equipment, and provide monitors, tripods, and other accessories as needed.
Right now, being on the cutting edge means that we are providing a Fiber Optic Multi-Camera Switch System before anyone else. We have Sony Panasonic AK-HC3800 cameras and the production engineers who can get the most out of the equipment.
