PHOTO ART DIRECTION involves orchestrating a team of artists and technicians to make powerful images. As an art director, I strategize, storyboard, manage budgets, and build teams. But most importantly, I develop the creative direction that guides the feeling and creates purpose. Ultimately, I empower my team to do what they do best, which is make great photographs!
I have served as an art director in the worlds of publishing, music, fashion, and technology. When I first began working in Microsoft’s Corporate Marketing department, they were paying usage rights to an ad agency for a handful of photos each year. When I came on board, I carved out a budget and position as the photo art director for the company’s worldwide marketing activities.
My work as an art director is truly an expression of my passion. It incorporates my attention to detail, my ability to organize, and my strengths as a creative lead.
