In this months CineForge Community Spotlight we feature one of the most versatile, talented, and generous creative’s in the valley, Rachel Gipson, co-owner of Surrealsister Photography and manager / promoter of the legendary Painted Tiger Studios in Glendale, Arizona.
Rachel has served as casting director, behind-the-scenes photographer, location scout, wardrobe manager, co-producer and all-around promoter of the valley arts while working alongside CineForge on numerous shoots over the last few years.
Rachel’s endless positivity and generosity of spirit has been evidenced by many when it comes to connecting and networking filmmakers, photographers, bands and creative’s throughout the valley. This characteristic and her numerous contributions to the arts scene has earned her a sterling reputation as an invaluable lynch-pin within the community.
Rachel also regularly serves as a VIP event/concert photographer, regularly capturing the likes of Alice Cooper (and the Cooper family) and high-profile acts, while also providing her talents for special events and charities. Her behind-the-scenes snaps have captured priceless memories on set in recent years, which we realize would otherwise have been lost to the ages. For her creative eye, boundless support, and perpetually upbeat attitude – CineForge thanks and honors her.
