Colleen, the management company founded by agent, coach and business development consultant Colleen Dolan Vinetz, has signed cinematographer John “Ping” Pingry to the agency’s roster for exclusive commercial representation.
During the past three years, Ping has served as DP on a number of diverse projects, working with such renowned commercial directors as Rob Cohen, Tom Dey (Centrum,) Chace Strickland (Dutch Boy, California Tourism,) Morgan Lawley (American Girl Dolls,) Sam Jones (McDonalds,) Lance Anderson (Salt Sunglasses) and Jim Krantz (Ralph Lauren Fashion Week Video,) among many others.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Ping and to help plan the next phase of his career,” Dolan Vinetz said. “I truly believe that he is positioned to break through to top level commercial work. The look and feel of his work is totally accessible, a beautiful combination of both classic and modern photography. He has a proven background in filmmaking for both features and commercials, and has established incredible relationships throughout the business. His work during the past 15 years has certainly helped position him as a Director of Photography with solid expertise.”
Pingry said, “I signed with Colleen because I was seeking a smaller, more intimate, agency that had similar sensibilities to mine. She and I had a great connection immediately – we connected on many levels. I wanted a manager who not only represents quality people, but who also really loves what they do. Colleen hit all the marks. She was the ideal choice to help me further expand my blossoming DP career.”
