We are thrilled with the addition of renowned photographer and director Michael Grecco to our roster. Known internationally for his award-winning, high-concept imagery – you’ll recognize his signature dramatic lighting in his celebrity portraits as well as in advertising and editorial assignments that take him all over the globe. Grecco is a celebrated speaker on creativity, photography, and his signature lighting and directorial techniques. As a Hasselblad Master he also travels the world as an expert instructor for workshops. Michael is based in LA and has been featured in dozens of magazines and has appeared on Extra and KNBC News. With all the awards and accolades you might expect a bit of a “personality”; you’ll be happy to know that is not the case. Although Michael is very comfortable amidst celebrity and fame, he is great to work with – funny, approachable, and flexible when it comes to everything except the quality of the final visuals he delivers to his client.

One of my favorite shows this season is Nashville. I was thrilled to see 3 of Brian’s images on air last night (January 16). Brian shot the images in Big Bend, Texas. If you’re a fan of the show, you’ll notice the shots are used in Deacon Claybourne’s (Charles Esten) hotel room, set in Texas, as set decoration – prints on the wall. The series won Most Exciting New Series at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards 2012, and has been nominated for many top awards in the industry. ”Nashville”/Wednesdays/9pm Central Standard Time/ABC.

I’m in love with Terry’s new website… Stop whatever you are doing now and take a quick peek: http://terryvine.com The site is simple; that’s what’s so great about it. Easy navigation, large images, clean design. Within 60 seconds you can tell this is an award-winning lifestyle photographer. What you might not be able to tell is that not everything is shot in natural light. A lot of his work is lit with traditional studio lighting, but he’s such a master at it, you can’t tell. And although those of us in the industry love high production value on a shoot, in some of Terry’s work, it’s a realistic enough setting that you can’t tell what all has gone into it – all the behind-the-scenes crew, days of prep, etc. Terry has been very busy – look for new work to show up here soon.

This is one of my favorite ads Michael shot this year… Chocolate Cake being a preferred dessert of mine. Actually, it’s a food group all by itself at my house. You’ve probably seen this ad if you’ve been looking at recipes for this time of year. Shot for Swans Down. We had a great time in the studio with all the baking going on during the shoot.

On April 4, The “International Day for Mine Awareness” took place worldwide as part of the Lend Your Leg campaign. People worldwide were invited to roll up a pant leg in honor of the victims of these devices.
Last year, in Colombia, a small group of citizens rolled up their pant leg in a symbolic gesture of solidarity with landmine survivors across the globe that have lost limbs to this deadly device. What began as a grassroots campaign to raise awareness of this ongoing humanitarian crisis, called “Roll it up, lend your leg” spread via social media and gained support from celebrities, NGO’s and government officials. This year, private companies unveiled billboards of their logos “rolled up” in support of the cause while students, teachers, workers and professionals rolled up their pant leg in what became a national phenomenon to declare to the world, NO MORE LANDMINES!
The “Lend Your Leg” campaign by BBDO Proximity won a Silver Lion this year at the Cannes Advertising Festival. To see more of the images Fernando shot for the campaign, visit his blog: http://decillisphoto.tumblr.com/

Terry recently completed a shoot featuring Mother Friendly Worksites. Scheduling shoot days around feeding times, naps and diaper changes for the talent was a bit challenging; as soon as everything was set – wardrobe, mom’s hair & make-up, composition, light - it was feeding time. Terry and his crew photographed 8 moms with their new babies in a home setting, and 19 moms in the workplace where breastfeeding is respected. In 5 days they shot at 10 different locations in 2 cities – Austin and San Antonio – including a Whole Foods Market, 2 different corporate offices, an advertising agency, an insurance agency, a cafe, and 2 homes.
