Amy Salzman – Art Buyer – ChatterCorner August 2010

For my latest article on PhotoServe’s Surveillance section, we switched things up and I interviewed my pal Amy Salzman, former Art Buyer with McCann Erickson and now Senior Art Producer for William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, which is part of the McCann World Group. Amy has also taken part in several of my creative panel discussions and has always been a lot of fun to work with, so check out the article for some inside insights by clicking on this link: Amy Salzman July2010

ChatterArtists August 2010

aaContinuing on with our theme of “humor” this month we are showcasing photographers who shoot surprise, surprise, imagery that is humorous! And by this I don’t mean photographers that shoot a funny image once in a while, I mean these are photographers whose humor is an integral part of their work and is woven either blatantly or subtly throughout their imagery. So go on, have a good chuckle!

Michael Sahadi

First up is a client of mine from Philadelphia, Michael Sahadi. I really enjoyed working with him because he was very keen to refine his imagery down into one single portfolio that reflected his specific style of environmental portraiture, and I think we accomplished that. This is a recent image from him that is a hilarious portrait of two dentists. I cracked up when I saw it, and I loved the subject line he chose for the e-mail promotion, which was,

“Just say ahhhh…”

ChatterLog July 2010

Greetings everyone, and welcome to the July ChatterBulletin, and to the season of Summer, which began officially on June 21st, the day of the Summer Solstice. The word “Solstice” literally means, “the Sun stands still.” And so it is, on June 21st, the Sun, having reached its highest point in the sky, pauses before continuing on his journey towards the Autumnal Equinox, followed by the Winter Solstice, during which time we will lose one minute of light each day. But that’s a long way off, so let’s stick with the present and this month’s theme, which is Motherhood & Family.

ChatterArtists July 2010 – maternity/family – Koren Reyes

Continuing on with the theme of “family” this month we are showcasing photographers who shoot maternity and family portraiture, with an emphasis on the bond between mother and child.

Koren Reyes

First up is a client of mine from a couple of years ago, photographer Koren Reyes, who has taken the “maternity” genre and primarily (although not exclusively) focused her business on that. You can imagine how wonderful it is for the mothers-to-be to have such beautiful and artistic images to remember their pregnancies by, (especially when the kid reaches the “terrible twos” and is driving her crazy!) and this image is no exception.
