Spencer Lowell at The Chemosphere with Benedict Taschen and The Hollywood Reporter

Of course when there is a house that I am dying to go see the shoot comes up when I am out of town. I sure wish I had been here for this one but I was not – sigh – so the house stays on the list of need to see!

But Spencer’s photographs of his visit with Mr. Taschen and John Lautner’s Chemosphere, one of the most famous houses in Los Angeles and the world for that matter, are so good I was very happy to look at the shoot and see all the wonderful details and hear his story and our favorite photo editor Audrey Landreth’s stories about their visit that day.

Here are a few of the images and to learn more about this house read here

Patrik Giardino – The US Army for McCann Worldwide

After a long wait Patrik’s campaign finally came out this Fall and we showed the ads a few weeks ago and today we are showing some more of the work to show you the breadth of what Patrik can do – so many different photographs were needed for this client – some controlled, some reportage, some on a stand alone photography day and some along side the broadcast shoot.

To see more of Patriks work take a look at his website here

Frank Ockenfels 3 – Fifty Shades of Grey

TBT – Last Thursday our lunch at AXE!

Last Thursday I cohosted with Jen Jenkins of Giant Artists, Deb Schwartz of DS Reps, and Jodi Rappaport/The Rappaport Agency – my fellow agents and dear friends and colleagues – a lunch for Los Angeles art buyers and print producers.

It was a wonderful get together at one of our favorite restaurants AXE. Amazing food, great conversations and a chance to put the faces to the names and voices of our business. New friends and old friends, it was wonderful to take some time and get to know the people we talk to and email on a regular basis.

And also a way to acknowledge all that these people do for us in their roles at the agencies often with out much fun and a lot of stress and it was a nice way to kick off the holiday season and make out business a little more human.

Thank you to my lovely co-hosts and to all that came and we all have decided that this is going to be an annual event!!

Sam Jones – Vanity Fair the January 2015 Bradley Cooper cover!

We are so excited about Sam’s new cover story in Vanity Fair.

The elephant in the room is a total classic and yes it was a real elephant and this really happened……amazing!!

I hear the interview is great – some holiday reading perhaps? And I am hoping to get to NYC during the run of The Elephant Man to see his performance of one of the most unique characters ever seen on film and or on the stage.
