Dan Goldberg shoots for Silk

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

This fall, Emissary Artist Dan Goldberg teamed up with Leo Burnett for a couple days in studio to shoot for Silk. In addition to Dan’s excellent lighting and photography, the effects of the shoot came together with the help of the model maker and art director to construct the almond and leaf character. 16 cartons of milk later, we’re impressed the little guy stood up to the challenge!

Thanks to the talented team of art directors at Leo Burnett, Denison Kusano & Kate Sullivan, for such a great shoot. Beautiful work, Dan!

Michael Clinard on This is the What

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Check out this great Q&A with Michael Clinard! He spoke with Kate Osba of the website This is the What about his creative process and the differences in how he approaches conceptual and business shoots. Although they’re different, as Michael states, “I find there’s a common theme running throughout both styles: a re-imagined or elevated take on the everyday world.”

We agree with Kate – it’s incredibly interesting to hear about the journey of the evolution of each project. A big thanks to Michael for sharing his process! Check out the rest of Michael’s work on his website.

Andrew Reilly | Michelob Ultra

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Talk about California Dreamin’ on a winter’s day!

Below are some of the beautiful images that Emissary Artist Andrew Reilly captured for Palm + Havas for their Michelob Ultra campaign. Andrew and crew traveled to Vancouver, Whistler, Malibu and ended in LA, shooting alongside the broadcast production so the team really had to manage their time to get the most out of the locations and talent – sometimes getting only 10-15 minutes before they broke down for another shot. We’d argue that you would never be able to tell the shots were rushed – the final images are absolutely beautiful!

Check out some behind the scenes shots and finished images below. And a big shout out to Lindsay Tyler (Palm + Havas’ art producer) and the entire Palm + Havas team for working tirelessly to assist in ensuring Andrew and team got what they needed for each shot. You can see the full sized images and the rest of Andrew’s new work right here.

This campaign is also featured on the Workbook today!

Emiliano Granado | One Tough Mudder

Monday, January 27th, 2014

It takes a certain someone to push themselves to run a marathon… and then it takes another type of person entirely to add flames, barbed wire and a tank of frigid water to the mix. Last fall, Emiliano Granado accompanied Lizzie Widdicombe of The New Yorker to a Tough Mudder competition in New Jersey;  Widdicombe’s article details her experience as a spectator and then participant of a Tough Mudder event. The images below are just a few that EG shot of the competition. Clearly, this isn’t an event for the faint of heart but as Emiliano noted, the spirit of camaraderie really comes through. See the rest of the images from EG’s time at the Tough Mudder and other new work right here.
