christine alicino's In Stereo

Photographer Christine Alicino in partnership with long-time commercial collaborative partner Art Director Ursula Brookbank of Nordstrom, present a show of In Stereo, a two-year-long photo and video project begun on the lunar new year. In the first year, Christine and Ursula, living on different coasts, each took one photo a day on their mobile phones. The photos were sent at the end of each day with no knowledge of the other's subject or image. For year two, Christine and Ursula each took one video each week with the same parameters. The images and videos were not discussed or written about until they met up at the end of each year.
"There seems to be a synchronicity occurring when both images are viewed side by side, they some how depend on and inform each other while conveying a sense of times passage," adds Christine.
The show opens tonight, February 23rd at 8pm at the Echo Park Film Center.

chicago roadshow

I don't think words will quite do justice to describe the incredible week I had showing portfolios with 4 of my photographers, but stay tuned as there will be more about the Chicago Roadshow in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here is a group portrait taken on the streets of Chicago by Matthew Turley, but art directed by everyone; Jamie Kripke, Margaret Lampert and Jim Salzano (looking here like the lead singer of our band).

15th annual rep lunch

We celebrated our 15th annual Rep Lunch at Tyler Florence's Wayfare Tavern on December 15th. This is such a coveted tradition, we all look forward to it every year. A bit delayed, but here are some photos from the day.

margaret lampert shoots for CBR

Margaret Lampert just finished a week of shooting stills and motion in Tucson, Arizona and San Francisco for the Cord Blood Registry. With the fabulous Jenny Bullock at the helm, a stellar crew was assembled and not a detail was left untended.  When you add a great creative team and wonderful client to the mix, it was in Margaret's words "a charmed week".  Many thanks to everyone who helped make it such a success and thank you to our terrific DP Courtney Perkins who also snapped these photos of Margaret in action!

My local run of portfolio showing continued this week with Eleven.  I had a great turnout, and I'm sure it had nothing to do with the killer donuts...  George was particularly fond of the maple glazed bacon apple variety.

For me, showing the portfolios at Goodby is like getting together with a group of really good friends I haven't seen in a while.  We just pick up where we left off - trading updates, laughs and stories.  It certainly doesn't feel like lucky we all are to have this community.

christine alicino for lastacaft

What a wonderful shoot Christine Alicino had this week.  It was actually a continuation of a project we shot last year.  Great creatives and great client on top of a stellar crew.  Thank you to Jenny at Jennifer Bullock Productions for keeping everything running so smoothly, Mark Gordon from G~10 Capture for digital tech and post production, and Brynn Doering for amazing hair and make-up styling.  And big thanks to Chris, Taryn and Shannon for the opportunity!
