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.

margaret lampert for fisher price

In early May, Bill Gastinger Art Producer from Y&R New York called to consider Margaret Lampert for an important ad campaign for their client, Fisher Price.  We spoke at length about the goals of the agency with this campaign - to move the brand in a new direction, as the client had previously tended towards a more controlled look, studio environments and highly stylized photography.  The centerpiece of this new direction was looser, more organic, location driven real photography, and I knew from the start that this was a campaign made for Margaret.  We successfully bid and won the job and had a wonderful experience both with Lesley Esan, the Art Director and Bill Gastinger, the Art Producer, as well as a great support crew through Lockbox Productions.  The ads are breaking now, we will share a few with you here.

jamie kripke's '40'

This is a fabulous post by Jamie Kripke, detailing his conflict with whether or not to accept a dream job that interfered with his plans to celebrate his 40th birthday with his family. Beautifully articulated Jamie and yes, I think you made the right decision too. Read the original post here.

The irony on what I am about to post is not lost on me. While innocently posting about my great dinner with 1) my fabulous food photographer, 2) his equally food savvy wife, 3) our highly acclaimed food stylist, 4) our gastronomic Del Monte client, 5) our wonderful designer and 6) totally together account exec…yes, I realize I am about to post food photos. Please take the photos in the spirit in which they were meant. What a fantastic evening at Skool; thank you Michael, Joyce, Stephanie, Trinity, Stephanie and Gail!

When I was in Boston a few weeks ago, there were some last minute changes that resulted in my having to re-schedule my appointment at Mechanica. I first met Libby DeLana about 15 years ago at Mullen, and with the help of certain social media sites and Libby's love of Northern California, have stayed connected with her. When it became clear I wouldn't be able to make the trek to Newburyport on that trip, I was VERY disappointed. In the most generous gesture, Margaret Lampert offered to host the show after my departure, which she did today. Margaret did a fantastic job, bringing lovely breakfast treats from Flour, and when an Art Director had a question about Matthew Turley's work that she couldn't answer, Margaret called Matthew and put him on the phone with the Art Director. Thank you Margaret, you can pinch-hit for me anytime!

A few weeks ago I made a long overdue trip to Boston. Showing the portfolios is always my favorite, but I was especially anticipating this one because it meant I would be able to spend some time with my Boston-based photographer, Margaret Lampert. Despite the unseasonably rainy weather, we made the rounds with visits to Mullen, Full Contact, Connelly Partners, Digitas and Arnold and stops in between at Margaret's wonderfully situated office on Newbury Street. I often brag about the incredible camaraderie amongst my group of photographers, and it was yet again exemplified on this trip. While I was expecting Margaret to accompany me to all of my shows as a guest, what I did not anticipate, was the way in which she took on the role of co-host. Repeatedly I would be on one side of the room engaged in conversation and I would look over to see Margaret showing and espousing the talents of one of my other photographers work. The evenings were as fun-filled as the appointment days, as I saw old friends from college, had dinner with my good friend from San Francsico, Steven Mietelski and was even treated by Margaret and her friends to a waterfront concert by Florence + the Machine. Thank you Margaret for making the trip so special!
