mechanica









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!

boston

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!
