Michael Clinard | Adweek

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Memorial Day is coming up and that usually means burgers and brats… but as this week’s Adweek details, Americans are throwing more chicken into the mix, too. Michael Clinard shot the images for the cover and the story within, detailing the rise of chicken’s fast food popularity. From a bun of two breaded chicken breasts to a Cajun-inspired chicken makeover, never has a subject matter been so delectable!

Check out the story and some outtakes below. Take a look at Michael’s site for more great work from his recent projects. Great work, Michael!

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.

Michael Clinard | BAMF (Bad Ass Mother Figure) Turns 103!

Friday, January 10th, 2014

A triple digit birthday calls for one heck of a celebration!

A few years ago our Emissary Artist, Michael Clinard, photographed Hilda Evelyn Kottman for a cover story in Seattle Weekly. This year she turned 103 and to celebrate, she and her grandson dedicated an afternoon to gambling, all-you-can-eat crab, and tattoos! Her birthday celebration became an all out internet sensation after the images were posted on Reddit and included in the section, “Ask Me Anything,” and has since been featured on various websites such as the Daily Mail and many others.

One of the main images being used is a stunning shot of Evelyn sitting proud amidst her impressive pickling collection, taken by Michael after their Seattle Weekly shoot. We think Michael did a beautiful job of capturing her carefree attitude and love that her story has brought a smile to so many people around the world. Imagine what birthday #104 will bring!
