Dallas & Design

I was selected to be part of an Art Direction & Commercial Photography seminar in Dallas led by Jack Sprague, Professor of Communication Design at the University of North Texas

Here are a few of the locations we hit:
The Campbell Agency
Dieste Harmel & Partners
Scott Harben's studio
Geoff Kern's Studio
Greg Booth + Associates
Splashlight Studios Dallas

What a rockin' opportunity to meet the DFW professional community and see where they work: modelling agencies, photo studios, and ad agencies. Of particular note, our visit to Dieste showed us the inner workings of one of the United States' best hispanic ad agencies that also does excellent general market work. Here's some footage of their work:

Gatorade Skyscraper
Pine Sol Clean House
and Bud's FFDD:

The seminar was a series of exciting & informative visits, but also included our own photoshoots for a larger advertising project. One of my favorites is the photograph pictured below (model: Kristen). It was taken at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas - the theater is in Mockingbird Station, very near Urban Taco.

This last shot of Kristen was taken at the home of the organizer, Jack.

Here's a BIG thanks to all of the businesses and individuals who gave of their time to help young professionals.
