Agency Rush

Nicki from Agency Rush popped in to see us today with some really lovely work from their team. They have a new signing Giordano Poloni whose work I really love; really clean and great lines and light. (below)
I am also always surprised with the charm of Kate Jenkins work, the time and effort that must go into her work and then to have such sweet outcomes (below too).

Saddington Baynes

Yesterday we had Lisa and Adam from Saddington Baynes come in to see us at Albion and show their stuff.
They have a pretty remarkable vehicle for presenting their work. They have developed an App (available on the App Store here) which is programed to activate when it recognises various images within their book (which they have created).
It really caught the creative's attention and they were really interested in the work Saddington had done - from CG, to photographic and digital. Really interesting work. Check them out if you have a minute, below is their showreel:

Image Brief

This is a really interesting company Image Brief, launched in Australia 10 months ago.
Photographers only make public shots which they have selected/sold and the rest just sit dormant on their computers, this site is where photographers sign up, select genre of photography and can sell their images on request.
We, as image buyers, go to the site, put in a description of the image they want, how much we want to pay (from $200), and when we need the image by. A note is generated to all the photographers who specialise in that genre and they all submit images which they already have which may fit the brief. Then we select the image. As we have already entered a cost this is the cost of the image.
You can also brief a specific image if you want. I probably would not use this bit but I can see it could be useful for some people.
Beats using image libraries (unless you really only have budget for £10 images!)
