Ted Catanzaro Rides Again

January 28 2016

How do you best promote yourself after 1. you’ve been around for awhile, and 2. you’re known as being part of a duo that shoots together, and now you are creating images solo. Good question. 

Our client Ted Catanzaro of Ted and Debbie worked with us on a digging down, rebranding project to help him get to know his own particular attributes.  and to shoot, edit, build a website and develop marketing materials that fully reflect where he is now in his career. One of the results is this fabulous, imitation wood grain, handmade feeling promo, reflective of Ted’s homegrown, funky, point-of-view. It was just cited by aphotoeditor.com as one of the best photographer promos of 2015

Proof that growing, developing and taking ourselves on in new ways can have award-winning results. We’re proud of you, Ted!

Models Who Do More: The Hyphenates Photo Shoot, including Lunchbox Fund founder Topaz Page-Green

September 27 2013

Awhile ago, I was thinking about models, those beautiful people blessed with extraordinary genes, some of whom are committed to projects and work that is much bigger and profound than you would think. My trend nose must have been twitching, as this was a bit before a few of the major fashion magazines published stories in this vein.

Anyway, I contacted my wondrous friend, photographer Matthew Jordan Smith, who is a committed humanitarian himself, to see if he would like to work on a fashion shoot that I called The Hyphenates, about models who had other active lives beyond the camera, both creative andphilanthropic.

One of the special people we photographed was Topaz Page-Green, a stunning model from South Africa who started The Lunchbox Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing daily meals for at-risk school children in township and rural areas of South Africa, a country where 65% of all children live in poverty. This month, she was featured in American Vogue's all-important September issue. The article talked about the interesting philanthropic model she has created, and the event she is organizing for foodies in NY, where you can photograph your meal at participating restaurants, tag the restaurant, and voila! the restaurant gives a donation to the fund. It’s a clever use of the photos we all take on a daily basis, and all for a good cause.

In honor of Topaz (in Pucci) and Jihae (in Rick Owens), who was long the face of Eileen Fisher, and who is a rocking chanteuse, and Gulia, an ER nurse who continues to work in front of the camera (cleverly outfitted in Harajuku Girls Red Cross T-shirt)), I'd like to share this wonderful fashion portfolio of The Hyphenates--models who do more.

Enjoy, and do more! As I tell all my clients, go forth with your dreams and put them into action. That’s how you satisfy yourself, and also build your brand.
