Tom Petrie


Founder of all things Dog and not dead yet. Tom has grown Bad Dog from a pup to a well-respected leader in production and the cat’s patoot among rental companies. (btw, that’s a good thing)

With the goal of providing clients with solid motion images and the terrific customer service, Tom founded Bad Dog Pictures in 1993. With storytelling roots in the news biz, Petrie has built a solid reputation as a solid shooter in the business.

Bad Dog has been known to keep a keen eye on developing technology and has been a leader in bringing new gear and techniques to the table. Bring Tom an idea; he can figure out the rig.

An award-winning, master craftsman, Tom is widely considered to be one of the best for composition and lighting. Many of the industry’s top producers rely on Tom because they know he always gets a beautiful shot.

Henry Abler

Digital Imaging Technician

We’d put this guy’s camera and data skills up against any one. Henry’s client commitment for a job well done is unsurpassed and his technical chops are to be envied. Rumor has it he was a hooligan in high school.

Dan Desloge

Camera Operator

Dan is Bad Dog’s utility player. Grip, check! Audio, check! Jib Operator, check! You could say specialties are his specialty. Throw Dan in your game and watch him hit a homerun.

Tracey Park-Brown

Production Manager

A producer’s producer! Tracey leaves no stone unturned in getting your project up and at ’em. Tracey came to Bad Dog from Chicago as a production company producer and talent agent. Her commitment to make sure your project goes off without a hitch and on budget is impeccable. Just don’t ask Tracey to go camping.

Anne Crabtree

Production Coordinator

Production coordinator – Client pleaser – Bad Dog’s go to girl. Anne will track down crew, book gear, look after your project and fine tune your production details all the way down to the last M&M on the craft services table. On weekends, she goes by Gloria.

Kelsey Cissna


Not your average beancounter, Kelsey brings grace and an artistic flair to our accounting crew. She’s an undercover Excel geek (competition winner!) and makes beautiful journals/calendars that can be found in her extensive moleskin library. Kelsey expects everyone to be audit they can be.
