Winslow Studios Inc.
I have used Stan Kotecki religiously as a location photographer on heavy industry accounts. His ability to capture numerous superb images during a single shot is still mystifying. His dedication and persistence to attaining the images you request is a rare quality among commercial photographers. I have seen Stan actually lean over a ladle of molten metal while equipment was physically melting to add some drama to a steelmaking process.
His images actually help explain complex manufacturing processes in an understandable and pleasing way. Also, much like fashion photographers work their professional models, Stan has the unique ability to put the working man at ease in front of the camera so he can capture the realism of the situation. That’s a rare quality that pays off for the client.
Arrow Electronics, Inc.
Stan Kotecki has been Arrow Electronics’ photographer of choice for the past nine years. A truly unique relationship where Arrow has relied on Stan’s photographic abilities. Stan has done photo shoots around the world to capturing the Arrow’s offices and its customers. The real value of working with Stan is the fact that he sees what most of us overlook. He can capture the essence of a situation, or a facility, or a product, or a person with minimal or absolutely no supervision. He provides us with a bank of shots hat can be archived and used year after year in project after project. And lastly, Stan is great to work with.
Charley Rucks Production Services
A large part of my responsibility as an event producer stage manager is to put the right people in the right place in a production to achieve the best results for my client. When it comes to still photographers, my first choice is always Stan Kotecki.
The types of projects that I have for still photographers range from high quality product photography to location factory shots to corporate executive portraits to public relations photography to event documentation and candids. There are very few photographers that have the breadth of experience to allow them to deal successfully with the wide variety of assignments that I have. Stan not only only has that experience, but the quality of the work that he produces, his demeanor with clients and his absolutely unrelenting quest for perfection in his work puts Stan in a class by himself.
A producer is only as good as the people that he or she puts into place to carry out the different facets of a production. There’s only one choice when it comes to still photography, Stan Kotecki.
