Out-of-office

27Jul09

I will be out of town this week for business so I may not be able to post, I’ll definitely be back to posting the following week.


I got to know Ty Cole back in the summer of 2007. I was working on an award show project and I needed someone who would be willing to help us out with a “down & dirty” shoot. In advertising we’re often asked to get someone who’s looking for a chance to build their portfolio […]


I received an email this week from Leslie Simitch who is EVP of Trunk Archive. Trunk Archive is a fairly new image licensing company that represents the archives of photographers such as Terry Richardson, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Pamela Hanson, Raymond Meier, Brigitte Lacombe, Martien Mulder, Francois Halard, amongst many others.

Jonathan from Vault49 stopped by the agency today to show me what they’ve been up to. Vault49 is a boutique design, illustration and photography studio from London that’s been based in NYC for the last few years. I worked with Vault49 back in 2006 when it was the 2-person shop of founders John Glasgow and […]

For my 2nd installment of the Rep office tour series I took a trip to the Eastside to Stockland Martel. For this trip I decided to stay off the office furniture and be a respectable Art Producer. Stockland Martel represents the heavy hitters of our business. I always work with the same Rep, Kathryn Tyrrel […]


I took the M out to Williamsburg last night to see Martien Mulder’s “FROM BLUE TO BLUE” opening. I’ve always been a fan of Martien’s work and her show at Capricious Space is beautifully edited. Capricious Space is proud to present FROM BLUE TO BLUE, a selection of images extracted from 10 years of personal work […]


I took a quick spin through Dana Miller’s “Free Fall” show opening at the Broadway Gallery this evening. Dana is a NYC based photographer and she had her first solo show at the Jen Bekman Gallery in 2004. Dana has also been featured on Jen’s 20×200 and there are still some editions available of her geese.


I realized recently after visiting 2 Rep offices that it’s not something I’ve ever done. As Art Producers we have Reps come to our offices and host portfolio shows, we go out to lunch with Reps, we see Reps at industry events, we e-mail Reps and we talk to Reps on the phone a lot […]
