Once again, myself, Steven Aramini from Bauserman Group and David Taylor from the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows got together and worked on the clubs annual stills campaign and video. It’s always a pleasure with these guys.
One of the perks of working for an amazing modern art museum is the fact you get to meet amazing artists. In the past I’ve had the pleasure of working with artists such as Edward Burtynsky, Leo Villareal and Newton and Helen Mayer Harrison. A few weeks ago I was able to document Franklin Evan’s installation of his exhibition time paths at the Nevada Museum of Art. Franklin graduated from Bishop Manogue High School in Reno but went on to live and work in New York. The exhibition took over a week to install and was an amazing process to witness. You can see an interview with him here at The Brooklyn Rail Magazine with some of the images we did.
I have been involved with Project GO! for a few years now helping as much as I can with whatever I can. Only this year have I been able to go on one of the river trips they do and understand more about the project. This was my takeaway from the day but you can find out more about the project and how to help here at their website www.projectgo.org
I had an awesome opportunity to head over to San Francisco last month to work with design legend Yves Béhar for the design issue of the FT Magazine in London. Aside from his work with Herman Miler, Prada and countless other brands, his industrial design and brand management firm Fuseproject has quite possibly one of the most awesome headquarters I have ever seen. 3 story barn door entrance, stained concrete floors, 1700sf gallery space and that’s just the visitor area. Awesome.
Special thanks to Aisha Zia for bringing me in on this one and congrats for becoming a permanent fixture to the FT team!
After a bit of nervousness and a lot of surprise, I was very very excited to find out a couple weeks ago that I had been chosen as one of the Directors to be included in SHOOT Magazine’s 11th Annual New Directors Showcase. After being encouraged by my good friend and colleague Marc Nannini to enter the competition I was truly shocked to be included in a list of such accomplished work!
You can see the entire list of Directors here .
BIG thank you you to SHOOT Magazine for this exciting opportunity.
Once again I got to work with the awesome team over at Noble Studios and Tahoe South on their winter marketing campaign. We had a very hectic schedule trying to squeeze in skiing, snow boarding, shopping, snowshoeing, sleigh riding and a few other winter activities – all before we lost our snow! Luckily we managed to not only keep the snow but get a gorgeous 8″ of powder the night before we did our main ski day at Sierra at Tahoe resort. And while I will never complain about getting to work outside on a beautiful clear day with fresh snow and clean air, due to the crazy schedule I didn’t even get to do any skiing.
We won’t release the winter video until next season but in the meantime here’s a sample…
As is usual for this time of year we recently held the AAF Reno ADDY awards ceremony. And like last year I managed to get another Gold ADDY with the Boys and Girls Club for their 2012 marketing video as well the TV spots I did for the Discovery Museum. And to top it off, the summer campaign video I did for Tahoe South also brought home a silver ADDY.
Many thanks to all the clients who gave me the opportunity to be part of your teams last year. Looking forward to more creative work this year!
As the lucky recipient of the 2011 ADDY Awards Best of Show, I was given the opportunity to work on the 2012 ADDY Awards ad campaign. The theme this year was Hollywood so we decided to take some of our local creatives and pair them with their Hollywood alter egos. Thanks to some patient talent, creative costume shopping and an amazing make-up artist we managed to create some great images and have a real laugh as we went along.
Extra special thanks to Nikki Becker for her above and beyond work on the hair and make up on this shoot.
So after a year of to-ing and fro-ing about how to go about doing my new site I finally managed to make a decision and get moving. Those who know me can attest I have a problem deciding which pizza I want so the fact I took over a year to make my mind up is no big surprise. The new site technically is miles head of the last few sites (all of which I had built myself). Clean, minimal, easy to navigate, flash, html5, iPad folio, user buildable PDF’s, HUGE images and big thumbnails – not much more you could ask for. If not for my wife going to Hawaii for 10 days with my 3 month old daughter I may not have had the time to sit in the studio for 10 straight days editing pictures and getting the new site up and running.
I will also be bringing in a photo editor and marketing specialist to help me with my 2013 marketing plan of attack. I had forgotten how nice it is to have an experienced team behind you helping make tough decisions, offering honest answers but giving experienced solutions.
It’s going to be a very exciting 2013!
Once again this year we got to work with the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows to produce their 2013 donor video. This is always a great job working with a fantastic organization. Thanks to everyone that helped produce this and most importantly the kids!
