world photography organisation

What an absolute honor and pleasure it was to speak at the World Photography Organisation’s first US Festival held at Left Space Studios in San Francisco. I was asked to participate on a panel presentation and discussion about Marketing & Commercializing alongside photographers RJ Muna, Elliott Erwitt, Brian Smith, and marketing director Rhiannon MacFadyen.

The panel was expertly moderated by photo editor Scott Thode. While my focus was espousing the keys to a successful, long-term photographer/agent relationship as well as the strategy for marketing a multi-faceted photographer like RJ Muna, each panel member shared his or her unique perspective on the topic. It was great fun and I look forward to the next opportunity (London, Shanghai, Sao Paulo…?)

frito lay shoot

We had a fantastically collaborative photo shoot for Frito Lay last week. Michael Lamotte was selected to shoot the Portfolio ad campaign for Goodby Silverstein & Partners, and when in the 11th hour they added some lifestyle kid shots, Margaret Lampert agreed to fly in from Boston to contribute her expertise! With amazing food styling by Stephanie Greenleigh, great prop and wardrobe styling by Hiroshi, adorable kids from Blackwell Files, perfect sets by Scene 2, great clients from Frito and a really fun creative team from Goodby, it just doesn’t get any better than this! Cool studio shots compliments of Bruce James, shots of Margaret compliments of my iPhone.
