our people:

Ah, summer. For many industries, this time of year is traditionally a time to ease back and take things slow and simple. Lucky for them. In the print and creative industries, we keep chugging along—oftentimes at breakneck speed—taking our clients’ down time and turning it into an opportunity to come up with bigger and better ideas, work on marketing projects for ourselves and our businesses, and updating our systems and processes with the latest innovations in technology. One of those innovations, in fact, is in color—something so simple yet so powerful in graphic design and print. For the latest innovations from color authority Pantone, check out “True Colors” on page 20, where you’ll learn about such things as color matching, color psychology and a hidden color gem in Brussels. Also showing their “true colors” are this year’s top ADDY winners. In “Best of the ADDYs” on page 12 , get a look at some of the best and brightest campaigns from Salt Lake to San Diego—and everywhere in between.

The FSC/SFI Sham

Story: Sabine Lenz

Or is it? Get the lowdown on eco-certification.

T

his is a sham.” Cynthia was up in arms. “A friend told me that there actually might not be any FSC-certified pulp in the FSC-certified paper that I buy. Then what about recycled pulp and what is all this talk about auditing? How can I trust anybody anymore?” Okay, I never said eco-certification was easy, but Cynthia’s friend definitely didn’t do the best job at explaining the ins and outs. FSC, and SFI for that matter, both certify forests to ensure they are managed in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. Their respective labels provide you and me with the assurance that the paper products we’re purchasing come from forests managed to conserve biodiversity and support local communities.

Where does the pulp come from?

As we agree on this, we can also agree on the fact that the FSC/ SFI pulp has to come from certified forests. The certification of the forest as such is the part you and I can easily understand. An independent auditor (both SFI and FSC work with third-party auditing companies) goes out to the forest that wants to be certified and makes sure it fulfills all the criteria required by the certification model. This doesn’t just include visiting the actual forest, but also includes aspects like making sure the forest workers are skilled, ensuring that no pesticides are used in managing the forest or that no genetically modified trees are planted. The standards are extensive. Once the trees are ripe (fully grown), they are harvested and brought to a certified pulp mill. Keep in mind that there are only around 40 FSC-certified pulp mills in North America producing somewhere between one and three million tons of certified pulp. Some of these mills produce their own paper from this pulp, but many paper mills in North America are non-integrated, meaning they don’t make their own pulp. Non-integrated mills buy their FSC-certified pulp from those certified pulp mills on a contractual or first-come, first-serve basis.

How is the pulp handled?

If we all wanted to buy 100 percent certified papers tomorrow, there just would not be enough pulp available to keep up with the demand. So, the most common logos we see today are those of “mixed sources” or papers that contain a certain percentage of certified pulp. The original idea—and a logical one at that—was to ask the

6

process

summer 2010

mills to ensure that the certified pulp was stored separately from the rest of the mill’s pulp and was used in the papermaking process separately. But if you’ve ever been at a paper mill, this poses quite a challenge. For one, a paper machines run 24/7 (except the yearly downtime for maintenance), so asking a mill to stop and start the machine to make certified paper is an economic impediment.

Volume sharing

Over the years, in an attempt to make the production of certified papers economically viable, FSC and SFI have adopted a “volume credit” system. A confusing term to be sure. I prefer “average percentage.” Let me explain with an example. A mill produces 100 tons of paper a year. It buys 10 percent of the pulp needed from a certified pulp mill. In order to not have to interrupt its workflow, the mill and certifying body agree that this 10 percent can be called out on specific paper lines the mill produces. In our case, theoretically 100 percent of the mill’s paper could be called out as 10 percent FSC /SFI certified. Let’s take it one step further and say the mill wants to offer a specific paper line with a higher certified percentage to its customers. For instance, Brand XYZ is 20 percent certified. Now, the mill can only label 50 percent of the papers it produces as 20 percent certified.

The audit

The certifying body keeps a close eye on its mill clients and conducts yearly audits, which include lots of paperwork including checking invoices for certified pulp received to ensure that a mill doesn’t market or claim to have more certified papers than the percentage of certified pulp that it purchased allows it to claim. This again is to assure you and me that we get what we pay for. Does this mean that theoretically the specific paper you and I buy does not contain the full 30 percent FSC / SFI pulp it claims? Sorry, but yes. And by the way, the same “average percentage” principle applies to the recycled content claims made by pulp and/or paper manufacturers. The bottom line is that we are “paying” for the overall efforts a mill makes to be sustainable and offer certified papers, thus providing our forest managers the incentive to certify, while staying economically viable.

Being a Good Boss Simple tips on being the boss you want to be

B

Story: nate sachs

eing a good boss today is harder than ever—and more important. Here are things every business owner can do to become the kind of boss they need to be.

I will always do what I tell my employees I’m going to do. I will not use common sense. I will use imagination. I will forget the past, not think about the future and focus on the present. I will always show my employees respect when I communicate with them. I have to help the people around me become more productive. I will make myself seen in the workplace. I will be positive and always tell the truth. I will accept the limitations of my employees. I will not let a client or customer be rude to an employee. I will hire for character and train for skill. I will never compromise integrity. I will make sure that my employees know the role they play. I will not be indifferent. I will respect my employees’ private space. I will treat my employees like a team not just like staff. I need to make a life as well as a living. I will take responsibility for my mistakes. I will always make my employees’ futures better than their pasts. BIO: nate sachs is the founder and owner of Scottsdale-based Blueprints for Tomorrow, a business advisory firm.

Points of Hue

Colors to use (and avoid) when looking to achieve specific results Story: Christine Hansen

D

on’t worry, the fashion police won’t come looking for you if you don’t choose the perfect colors for your next direct mail campaign. But your customers may not either. Colors aren’t as clear-cut as words, but there is a loose meaning for most. And while color usage isn’t an exact science, hues definitely can influence the outcome of a direct mail campaign, says Cynthia Cornell, color researcher with Color Communications Inc. So when choosing, be conscious of the message you want to convey and how you want customers to perceive your products. Blue-based reds (such as raspberry) are associated with more expensive products. Stick with yellow-based reds (like tomato red, which is imagined as less expensive) if you’re looking to downplay a high price. Use orange to play up affordability. Yellow is the first color the eye sees, and when used with dark colors for high contrast (e.g., black type on a yellow background), it becomes more powerful and more easily read. Choose green to convey possibility and hope.

10

process

summer 2010

Blue connotes confidence and safety, making it a great choice for financial and medical institution matters. Purple is especially hot right now, but it’s typically used with high fashion, sports teams or sweet treats (e.g., chocolates or perfume) rather than direct marketing. Black conveys a strong sense of power Add sheen or matte to black and it becomes more powerful. White (especially when presented on tone) implies sophistication and formality—but also a high-end price point. Source: Color Communications Inc.

true story: Michelle Jacoby Photography: Pantone

Calling all graphic designers! hue-ge innovations will color you happy.

W

hen it comes to design, graphic designers are all about pushing the creative envelope with bells and whistles that will get their work noticed. Yet, as much as we love cool visuals and fancy treatments, the real key to successful design can be pinpointed to something as simple as color. Yes, color. It’s the seemingly little things that can make a project sink or swim. Fortunately, color authority Pantone offers a whole slew of new innovations in color systems and matching, making it the graphic designer’s best friend. Here’s a look.

Wait, There’s More Taking the Pantone Matching System to a new level is the Pantone Plus Series. Released this year, the updated program gives designers and printers a whole slew of new features and capabilities, include the chromatic arrangement of colors, an expanded palette of spot colors, new premium metallics and a broader range of neons. “Pantone Plus takes what designers and printers know and love about the Pantone Matching System and supercharges it with a host of new features, colors and digital tools,” says Ron Potesky, senior vice president and general manager of Pantone. “The Plus Series provides designers with greater freedom for selecting, specifying and matching color.” Other new features include Pantone Color Manager software for updating Pantone colors in design applications, such as Adobe, Quark and Corel; ColorChecker lighting indicator that aids in finding proper lighting conditions for color evaluation; and ColorChecker Primer for digital photography image color correction. In addition, books in the Plus Series are printed on text-weight paper that meet FSC certification standards.

Color on the Go

Match Maker It’s the eternal question in the design world: Will the real color please stand up? Many graphic designers—and printers for that matter—struggle with the disparity between colors on the computer screen and on the printed piece. Imagine the logo you designed look deep blue on your client’s letterhead, blue-green on his business cards and light blue on his envelopes. Who wants to pull the plug on an entire print run just to color correct? It’s enough to make you shudder. Enter the Pantone Matching System, a standardized color matching system that ensures the accuracy of color between the screen and the printed product. The system features chip books that help designers see how colors look on paper, as well as swatch guides filled with the colors of the Pantone library. Since Pantone colors are distinguished by a specific numbering system, the color is standard across board. However, the same color may look different on different types of stock. Because of this, the numbering system is enhanced by a suffix system that indicates the type of paper used. For instance, “C” refers to coated; “U” refers to uncoated; and “M” refers to matte.

Because creatives can’t usually sit still for too long, the Pantone Plus Series offers an application designed specifically for their iPhones. The myPANTONE™ iPhone® application gives designers the ability to capture, create and share Pantone color palettes wherever they go. Just released is the myPANTONE X-Ref iPhone application, which gives designers the ability to match a color with one in the Pantone color libraries.


Q&A: Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute

Is conceptualizing and developing colors for graphic design and print different than it is for fashion and home? If so, how and why? My specialty is the psychology of color and I believe that is what always plays to people’s emotions, no matter what the context. That is, red is going to excite and stimulate, no matter where and how it is used. Obviously, there are other factors that play into print and graphics, such as the importance of visibility in print that may not matter in intimate surroundings such as the home.

 Do people/consumers react to colors in such things as ads, billboards, brochures, packaging, etc. differently than they do in clothing and interiors? Again, the inherent psychological messages are always present for each color family. For example, a picture of delicious mango ice cream on a printed page or in the packaging stimulates the appetite. That same appeal would hold true in the color of the dining room walls.

 When choosing colors for a designed piece, what is the one thing graphic designers need to remember? What is the intended message and does the selection of color(s) best reflect that message? This is not about personal likes and dislikes, but what the best selection is for the intended usage. Pantone Color Institute Considered the mecca for all things color, the Pantone Color Institute is a color research and information center that shares its expertise with professionals in fashion, interior design, graphic arts, advertising and film, among others. Through the institute, the company studies how color influences human thought processes and emotions, giving industry professionals and creatives an understanding of how to use color more effectively.

in living color

With Pantone setting the standard in colors for fashion, cosmetics and interiors, the global color authority has now ventured into the hotel business with the recent opening of—ready for this?—the Pantone Hotel. Located in Brussels—steps from Avenue Louise, the renowned shopping and business district that is a muse to modern-day designers—the 59-room boutique hotel is at once chic, colorful and comfortable. Designed by Belgian interior designer Michel Penneman and Belgian architect Olivier Hannaert, each of the hotel’s seven floors are awash in different color palettes to complement guests’ emotions with distinctive hues. In the guest rooms, white walls and bedding provide a clean canvas for saturated splashes of vibrant color, while photographs by Belgian photographer Victor Levy that include a spectrum of vibrant Pantone colors create a unique ambiance in each room. In the mood for blue-toned room? Or how about one with relaxing green hues? Whatever color you crave, you can choose a setting that complements your mood through color, thanks to seven distinct Pantone color palattes the rooms are patterned after. “Paris has the Champs Elysées, Barcelona has the Ramblas and New York City has Fifth Avenue,” says Lisa Herbert, executive vice president at Pantone. “On Avenue Louise…Pantone is right at home in the heart of this vibrant city center, having long been synonymous with color and design in all walks of life, from high fashion and interior design to corporate branding.” Rooms and packages can be booked by visiting pantonehotel.com.

prisma graphic: taking marketing integration to a new level photography: Chris loomis

Prisma's dokshop is transforming the way company brands like W Hotels, University of Phoenix and Petsmart manage their marketing efforts

I

t all started 30 years ago, when Prisma Graphic began as a small Phoenix-based boutique print shop that catered to the imaginations of advertising and creative agencies throughout the Southwest. In 2000, Bob Anderson took ownership of the company, which had 30 employees and approximately $1 million in sales. Fast forward to 2010 and the company has grown exponentially to 130 employees housed in an 82,000-squarefoot facility. Oh, and it just posted over $24 million in sales.

There should be no surprise that Prisma Graphic has experienced massive growth over its history, particularly under the leadership of Anderson, who has maintained the company’s commitment to innovation, increased its focus on the needs of its clients, and developed a business model geared towards constant change. Anderson and his team have transformed Prisma from a traditional commercial printer into a marketing supply chain provider, offering a host of products and services for their clients to efficiently operate in today’s competitive markets.

Print

Recognizing the need for clients to create and execute consistent branded marketing campaigns, while maintaining costs and maximizing returns, Prisma offers traditional and variable print, along with digital distributions that best promote their clients’ overall business growth. “I was recently asked to print and mail 350,000 16-page stitched catalogs—an order most printers would accept with no questions asked. After learning more about past response, I suggested we e-blast the 20 percent who have traditionally responded

You can imagine the look of surprise from the client,” says Anderson. “I’m proud to say we are a very different kind of partner.” In 2001, Prisma developed an online product called dokshop, which is utilized by almost 200 of its current clients. According to Tim Bateman, Prisma’s vice president of sales, dokshop provides clients an easy way to control their brand, print or fulfill on-demand, build custom HTML or PDF files for electronic distribution, cost account, manage inventory and deliver marketing assets worldwide. Leading the industry in innovation, Prisma Graphic plans to build upon its existing products and services, using new technologies and online capabilities that

summer 2010

better support its clients’ marketing objectives. Prisma envisions a future of providing highly targeted acquisition lists and using a mix of media to deliver content based on consumer preference. These programs will include online data collection sites with full database management and complete reporting capabilities, ultimately helping clients build brand loyalty.

Services

While the company’s roots are as a leading commercial printer, customer-voted No. 1 in Ranking Arizona for the past three years, Prisma Graphic has greatly expanded its service offering over the last decade. Through dokshop, the company currently manages close to 200 B2B online storefronts,

supporting 40,000 worldwide users and takes roughly 6,400 line-item orders per month. Orders range from traditional print and fulfillment, to one-to-one products (mailers, HTML and advertisements) to third-party, “just-in-time” products through a national network of print providers. A good example can be illustrated through Prisma’s long-standing relationship with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., who own, operate or franchise thousands of hotels including Aloft, St. Regis and W Hotel brands, to name a few. Prisma’s dokshop system provides corporate marketing with an easy way to post and manage current front office, in-room and marketing materials for the individual properties to utilize. This

process allows corporate to control their global brands, while each location can localize the message and receive materials much faster and more economically than in a traditional model. The system also provides complete transparency for corporate accounting to monitor spending all the way down to any product by location.

Technology

"The dokshop system, which started as a simple business card ordering site nine years ago, is now the foundation of our service offering and will continue to evolve to support our clients," says Rob Steele, Prisma's marketing and e-commerce director. “ Technology has become so important Prisma now has almost as many programmers as pressman.”

“ Technology has become so important Prisma now has almost as many programmers as pressman.” Due to the success of dokshop, Prisma recently created and launched a web-to-print site called Print Power to fulfill the needs of the design community. Print Power is an easy-touse solution ideal for small- to medium-sized print projects requiring “designer-quality” for competitive online prices. Although the website is fairly new, Prisma is committed to developing the site completely based on client input and product demand.

Beyond Print

Prisma Graphic embraces all the latest promotional technologies, working closely with clients to create programs that satisfy their marketing needs, regardless if print is included. In fact, almost 35 percent of their business today is outside of traditional print and they expect the trend to continue as more and more integrated services are added. Prisma currently works with Big Idea Marketing Inc., a creative agency based in Southern California. Big Idea develops national marketing campaigns for a number of multi-chain, fast-casual restaurants like Lone Star Steakhouse and Marie Callendar’s. They enlist the technology of Prisma’s dokshop to deliver those campaigns. Every individual restaurant owner or franchisee has 24/7 online access to pre-approved templates to customize and promote business on a local level. Whether they are in need of a small print run for a local promotion, a variable electronic file to e-blast out, the creation of custom barcode products to measure a customer loyalty program, or simple inventory management, fulfillment and distribution, dokshop does it all. With most companies closely examining every marketing dollar they spend, Prisma believes it must continue to develop solutions that demonstrate the highest return-on-investment. “Diversifying our service not only allows our business to grow,” explains Bateman, “it allows us to best serve the needs of our clients.” CONTACT: Prisma Graphic 602.243.5777 + prismagraphic.com

q&a

fluid studio It's all about hustle and flow at this Salt Lake City marketing firm

Tell us about Fluid Studio. How did the firm get started? What’s the story behind the name?

In 1998, Fluid Studio started out as an in-house design and marketing firm specializing only in  print collateral. Originally called Pixel Point Create, we had one client, one manager and three artists. In less than four years, we became our own company called Fluid Studio, quadrupled our staff, increased our client roster and  outgrew two office locations. All of that has given us a unique perspective. And because we’ve had to face many of the same challenges as our clients,  we approach marketing problems with a much different perspective than  most agencies.

What is the company culture and philosophy? Who are the people?

Our job is quite simple, really. Get our clients noticed. There are several ways to do this, but we prefer to outthink the competition rather than outspend them. So we create Big

summer 2010

Ideas that will have Maximum Impact for our clients’ brand. We also believe that big thinking doesn’t have to come with big egos. Unlike many big agencies, we pride ourselves on being easy to work with. We treat each client relationship as a business partnership and encourage involvement at each step of the process. We have talented group of professionals that know how to create Big Ideas. Currently, we have six designers, two account executives, an office manager and the president of the company.  Everyone is heavily involved in the agency’s day-to-day operations and creative development.

When it comes to generating great ideas, what fuels the creative process? What do you and your team draw your inspiration from?

At Fluid, we have creative inspiration activities twice a month as well as an off-site activity once a month. Each employee is assigned a day for the activity. We’ve gone to the Museum of Natural History, visited horticultural gardens, gone rock climbing and many

fluid studio team


other activities. The creative activities occur during our staff meetings. We’ve etched glasses, screen printed T-shirts, painted wood blocks, made Valentine cards and much more. At one time, we also had a year in which, each month, a designer created a T-shirt about Fluid with complete freedom on the design. This served as a great creative outlet for designers.

Your work is very visual. How much emphasis do you place on having the image, rather than the words, convey the message?

Each project has it’s own problems and solutions. Of course visual emphasis is very important whether is be photography, illustration or type. We place equal importance on what application would convey the message best and use creative copy often when it is suitable for the goals of the project. Good examples of this would be the illustration we created for Bonneville and the creative headline for the UDHI billboard.

What has been the most memorable or challenging project you’ve worked on?

Our work for the Gallivan Center is always the most memorable because we’re representing unique events where we get to be very creative. The Salt Lake Classic 5K/10K and volleyball event in particular stands out because we not only designed the events posters, brochures, T-shirts and race medals, but everyone in the office participated in running either the 5K or 10K race. This was very memorable as we collaborated together and all had involvement in every detail of the project, including participating in the end result.

PRSA/IABC/AMA Happy Hour

Folks from the local chapters of PRSA, IABC and AMA met up on April 7 at Frashers in Scottsdale to talk shop, life and network. A great time was had by all—especially when social media superstar Scott Monty of Ford Motor Company surprised the group with an appearance. In town to visit family, he saw all the buzz for the event on Twitter and had to see what all the fuss was about.

#buzzcation

On April 15, more than 60 members of the local communications community joined the local chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences at Portland’s in downtown Phoenix to raise funds for the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications as part of a #buzzcation event. Invented by local public relations practitioner Yvette Roeder in 2009, #buzzcation began as a fun way for communications practitioners to network. However, over the past several months, the happy hours have been enhanced with a fundraising element by partnerships with local nonprofits and other organizations. This event raised more than $700 for the Cronkite Scholarship program.

Jeffrey Hayzlett Event

On May 5, nearly 130 people came out for the Jeffrey Hayzlett presentation “The Mirror Test.” Presented by BMA Colorado, Printing Industries of Colorado and NDAC, attendees were treated to a very special and amazingly animated production that showcased the turnaround at Eastman Kodak, and gave insight into creative thinking, which demonstrated that sometimes, the answers to our everyday business challenges are often simple and easy. Attendees also received a copy of Hayzlett’s new book, “The Mirror Test,” which he signed for those who wished, courtesy of Vision Graphics. His book is fast moving up the bestseller list on Amazon.com. “We were very fortunate to have Jeffrey come to Denver and even more fortunate to be able to combine the efforts of this event with 2 fine organizations,” says Sandi Neuman, president of the Printing Industries of Colorado. “Working with Marilee Yorchak and Lorelle Burke was an absolute pleasure and made this event very successful.” photography: Bryce Boyerav

Regional News: the local update

Remembering Dave Neuman On May 17, longtime printer and owner of Viking Litho Dave Neuman lost his battle with cancer. Dave’s former wife Sandi Neuman, president and CEO of the Printing Industries of Arizona and Colorado, remembers his life and career.

O

n May 17, Kayti and I said goodbye to Dave after losing his battle with cancer. And it was a short battle having been diagnosed in early March. Those who knew Dave knew he was a complicated individual. Humble and fiercely loyal, he rarely let anyone completely see what was on the inside. That singular exception was reserved for our cherished daughter, Kaytlin. His “spare time” was spent helping to make sets for her theater troupe, donating his time (and printing) to her school, hauling Kayti and her girlfriends to horse shows, teaching her how to hitch and haul her own trailer, watching all their favorite movies together—the gorier, the better—spending summers in Minnesota with his dad, and of course, the annual trip to Disneyland, which signified the beginning of a new school year. There were few things that made him more proud than being her father, but his skill with a printing press was right up there. He was a craftsman, a master of his domain, and took very seriously the process of putting ink to substrate. He often said that if he could feed it through the press, he could make ink stick to it.

And a number of people learned that, in fact, he could. Honorably discharged from the Marines in 1967, he learned his craft at Paul Foss Printing in Minneapolis. In 1973, he moved to Phoenix and was hired as a pressman at Imperial Litho where many a career was born…and many, many friendships. Along the way, he earned a pilot’s license, learned to ski and scuba, and was quite the carpenter and DIY guy. He had a tool for everything and needed every one of them…. and heaven help the person who messed with them! And, man, did he love muscle cars. Some of you may remember the Hurst Olds he had, one of only 526 made. He rebuilt a number of cars over the years, and of course had a whole different set of tools for that! How does one sum up a life? Over a span of 27 years, I came to know him as a friend, husband, business partner, father, ex-husband and ultimately his caregiver. And in the end, he was clear that there were no regrets. He accepted what fate had delivered to him, saddened only by the thought of saying goodbye to his beloved daughter way earlier than he had planned. So many in the community have expressed their surprise and sadness at the news of his passing and we are grateful for all the kind words and support. He would have hated the fuss over this, but he also would have appreciated the kindnesses bestowed on Kayti and me. Services were held at Fort Snelling in Minneapolis on June 3 with friends and family present. A memorial college fund has been established at Wells Fargo Bank. Contributions can be made to the Kaytlin Neuman Education Fund at any Wells Fargo Location.

Denver photographer Mark Stevens recently opened his latest exhibit, “In Celebration of Dance,” at the Cherry Creek Art District. After working with dancers from across the United States and Canada, Stevens has put together a stunning display of photographs that capture the strength in a “sport” not often thought of as anything other than graceful. One piece garnering lots of attention is “Really,” featuring a guest artist with the Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Company. Seemingly horizontal on his toes, the dancer is in the process of standing up. Stevens created a dent in the wall and made the image black and white. The exhibit is on display through June from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. For information, visit mstevensphoto.com.

10 Questions Joe Hancock, Photographer

What’s your philosophy when it comes to photography?

Keep it simple. This may not seem like the case in some of our more complex productions, but no matter how technically difficult a photograph becomes, ultimately my goal is the same: to tell a story as quickly and clearly as possible.

If you weren’t shooting, you’d be...

Probably writing. I guess I’ve always been drawn to storytelling. The challenge with telling a story photographically is that you only have a split second to do so.

What has been your favorite project and why?

It’s always difficult to name a favorite. Each job has unique challenges. One particular assignment involved creating a scene in which a woman appears to be bathing in a bathtub filled with motor oil. We ended up using pancake syrup as a substitute for the oil. It was fun, but I’d like to think that my favorite project is yet to come.

 ho or what influences W your work?

Everything around me. Recently, while on a family vacation, my 12-year-old daughter stuck her point-and-shoot camera up to the hotel room door viewer and took a photo of the ocean through the viewer. I never would have considered it. That curiosity was refreshing to me.

Whose photography do you most admire and why?

There are many. But like other photographers before me, I would certainly have to name Richard Avedon. I admire his honesty.

The content of a person’s refrigerator says a lot about them. What’s in yours?

Ice cold, Grey Goose Vodka.

In your professional life, what is the one thing you cannot live without?

My 44” printer. In the digital age, we’ve lost touch with how beautiful large prints are. We deliver on disc or via FTP and everyone experiences photography on computer screens. I’ve recently been making prints again and it’s a great feeling to work with something so tangible.

What’s your idea of a perfect day?

Any day spent with sand between your toes.

What’s your guilty pleasure? Bacon. What’s on your iPod? We have an “open mind” policy at

the studio. We’ll listen to anything at least once. Talk about a wide spectrum. If you saw the artist list, you’d think I have multiple personalities—and musically, I guess it’s true. I’ve got old Johnny Cash to more obscure Architecture in Helsinki. Blind Pilot, Teddy Bears, MGMT and, if we’re all in the mood, Girl Talk. However, without fail, nothing gets the clients dancing like the play list titled: 100% Disco.
