    Matt Roth is a Baltimore-based editorial and commercial photographer with a penchant for capturing the mildly absurd side of everyday life. We worked together on creating a print portfolio that he could show at portfolio reviews in New York City. I’m loving the mix of portraits and documentary work, and how Matt’s sense of comedic timing pulls it all together.

    I had the pleasure of collaborating with Nashville-based commercial and editorial photographer Kristina Krug. Kristina’s work is all about people.

The hard working team of designers, editors and photographers create a unique product highlighting all the best events in town. This year we also produced a Houston and Portland, Oregon calendar.

    Buff Strickland is an Austin-based lifestyle photographer with a great talent for creating upbeat, bright and natural-feeling images. Her work is sought after by editorial and commercial clients who want to tell stories and highlight products in a genuine, yet aspirational, way. Buff and I worked together to create a new print portfolio edit of her work. The book was made by Scott Mullenberg of Mullenberg Design Studio. Buff showed the new book at the Texas Photo Roundup portfolio reviews, and received great feedback from the art buyers and photo editors in attendance.

    I had the pleasure of working with Philadelphia-based fine art and editorial photographer Katrina d’Autremont on her new print book. The book was custom designed and built by Marianne Dages. Katrina’s work has an understated and personal sensibility, and creating an edit that captured that was an inspiring process. We melded her personal work with her editorial work in a way that speaks to both worlds without diluting either area’s strengths.

The mothership of the week is the PhotoPlus Expo at the Javits convention center, with other events happening around the same time to capitalize on having so many photographers in town at once. Every night there are parties and book signing and openings. Aside from all seeing old friends and meeting new creatives and photographers, I spent most of my time during the day doing portfolio reviews at the PDN/Palm Springs Portfolio Review. This was probably my 15th organized review event and I thought it’d be helpful …
