The Lounge: Adam Amengual

July 11, 2010

When I selected Jaime and Grant for my Year in the Life Project last fall, Adam Amengual was on the shortlist. Getting ready to relocate to LA from New York, I liked a lot of Adam’s work and was curious about the idea of following his move. In the end, though I decided to keep [...]

It looks like this: Truthfully, I’m not sure I’m down with it but I like Andrew a lot- What’s the Jackanory? is an inspiration, and a marvel [...]

As anyone who’s worked with me knows, good production is something I value heavily. Here in town, I love working with Courtney Boyd of Pulp Rosetta- she and I share the same roots- both of us having produced full time for Tom Feiler in the past. But my recent trip to Vancouver brought me in [...]

The Lounge: Alternatives to Stock

April 13, 2010

Continuing on the stock-photography discussions of last week, I thought it might be interesting to look at a few shooters who are really owning a style that lends itself to custom image libraries.

Guest blogger tonight: Leila Courey is the Senior Art Buyer at Leo Burnett Toronto and just finished judging the PDN Photo Annual.
