James Grady

November 14, 2017

I first worked with James Grady at Kor Group, and have admired his vision for years. He’s recently taken an academic position at BU College of Fine Arts and wanted new portraits that connected design thinking with his teaching position. Riffing off reference images that ranged from warm family moments to high-key b&w renditions by Giacommetti, Chuck Close, and others, we captured his thoughtful, down-to-earth attitude in a multi-dimensional shoot.

Jen Welter

October 10, 2017

Jen Welter is a force of nature – and to be fair, more than force is necessary to break through the glass ceiling that she now floats over: Jen was the first female to coach in the NFL. We were set to task with taking this larger-than-life personality and crafting a book cover image that speaks to her tremendous power, that also captures her savvy, smarts and feminine side: a delicate balance. Wrestling with a perfect outdoor location and curve-ball New England weather, we brought the outside in via professional grade turf and a bench from far-flung states. We learned about various features of pro turf, and what it means to be benched with a streamlined production team in our cozy Brookline Village studio. The session was very much an athletic match in a physical, emotional & mental arena, art-directed by Alex Camlin. To learn more, pick up a copy of Play Big – lessons in being limitless from the first woman to coach in the NFL. See what it was like Behind the Lens at an ASMP exhibit – opening and panel discussion October 18th.

Blue Heron

September 28, 2017

It’s hard to believe it’s been a decade since this early music vocal ensemble connected with us for their first CD project, and we’ve been wrangling these lively performers ever since. Blue Heron has been hailed by Alex Ross in The New Yorker for the ‘expressive intensity of its interpretations’, which we well understand from a visual perspective. See how this collective has evolved over the years, and what it looks like to capture their spirit.

Herzog & Schindler

August 22, 2017

Manon Herzog and Teri Schindler approached us to craft environmental portraits that support their identity as brand strategists, design thinkers and media specialists. Reflecting the clean, sophisticated lines of their website, their individual portraits now convey their warmth, experience and a personal dynamic that fits into their strategic approach. Style support through Rachael Berkowitz at Anchor Artists.

Feldman Land Surveyors

July 18, 2017

Feldman Land Surveyors keep up with the times – as their field evolves, the company invests not only in education, technology and equipment, but also in their online presence. We worked with them to convey their value and position within New England and the Greater Boston area through capturing scenes from a day-in-the-life at their new location in Boston and out in the field.
