Paata Stanley is a wonderful rep, he not only looks out for his clients but his artists as well. He truly has both interests at heart. He makes a great effort that all the details are tight and organized, making the job that much more enjoyable. I look forward to being represented by Paata for a very long time.
I've only been a client of Paata Stanley Management for a short while. As a new photographer there were certain things about the business side that I just did not know. Paata was no more than an email, text or phone call away - to which at all times he responded instantaneously I might add. It showed me how dependable he was and how dedicated he is to his clients. The first project I did for him was so easy to deal with, no discussing prices with the client, follow up or any type of administrative work was involved. All I had to do was show and shoot. And just as with everything else, he moved fast to make sure that I was compensated as per whatever the agreed upon rate was. In this business, everyone wants their Jerry McGuire. I think I've found mine early in Paata Stanley

I have had the occasion to work with Paata Stanley for myself as an artist, and in referring appropriate candidates from my art world to work with him for their art (photography, music, etc.). He is articulate about what he does, what he can do for a particular client, and never over extends his reach. he has proven forthright, serious, professional, knowledgeable and fair. i would recommend him to all aspiring artists to get greater visibility and to grow with an agent who takes a serious personal interest in his client's success.

I am a photographer François Bonneau (bonneaufoto.com) plus 15 years. I specialize in photographing people. I met last January Paata Stanley (Paata Stanley Management) through a friend. At that time I showed my photos of work and he recognized my talent as an photographer. A few days later he called and emailed to request a photographer for the AP (Association Press, New York) and since mid-January I'm with AP February, I needed to extend my visa (0-1) I called Paata to ask if he wanted to support me as an photographer, he accepted and wrote a letter on my abilities as a photographer. We met only a few weeks ago, and each time I call, email, text him he makes time to always available or return calls or e-mails quickly. Paata thanks for your support, your greatness, responsibility
Paata Stanley Management provided a location for my award-winning television show 12-Steps To Recovery. It was a location that was pivotal in an episode and Paata Stanley received an associate producer credit for it. He was extremely professional and hospital with the cast and crew and as the director/producer, I will not hesitate to enlist his services again.
I've had the privilege to work on several teams with Paata Stanley. His leadership and reliability are hallmarks of his character and key indicators of his proven industry success.
