Now that the dust has settled…the Easter egg to end all Easter eggs. TWD DPS BTS in three parts…Part 1, The Forest. It was a beautiful afternoon in the forest on the property of Raleigh Studios in Senoia, Georgia last June. This is where we THOUGHT we were going to be doing our WALKING DEAD group shot the next day and except for the chiggers (that’s a real thing) and the ticks (also a real thing, Eric found three on various parts of his anatomy) we were in great shape. Then Cindy showed up. Tropical Storm Cindy. And Cindy dumped rain all over the greater Atlanta area and it became a torrential downpour on our shoot day…so we were forced inside. Knowing that the rain was coming, we did all kinds of background plates of the banquet table in the forest, with and without the crew standing in, so that we could see how the daylight was falling. We measured and we analyzed and we chin stroked and we head scratched. And then we tore everything down and rebuilt it on a sound stage…Lighting by the Atlanta Rough Riders, @chrispinel, @d.j.ashley and @jacedowns.

Now that the dust has settled…the Easter egg to end all Easter eggs. TWD DPS BTS in three parts…Part 2, The Sound Stage. So…we brought the forest indoors. We bounced two heads into the muslin we hung behind the set and we bounced two heads into the 12x silk we placed over the set and we brought those two soft boxes back to add a little front fill and we had the AMAZEBALLS art department dress the front of the set to look like it was in the forest. At left is the set up for all the cover shots and the always calm, always amiable Eric Vlasic, the greatest digital tech to ever open Capture One. Behind the 4x floppy at right sits Shiva.

Now that the dust has settled…the Easter egg to end all Easter eggs. TWD DPS BTS in three parts…Part 3, The Result. Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner? While Norman spills champagne and Melissa spoon-feeds Norman and Lauren looks longingly at Danai and Andrew, Shiva is ready to pounce. Two frames, a left and a right, a forest and a studio, blended seamlessly by @amgiemariehayes, como siempre. Thank you, Tropical Storm Cindy, for pushing us out of the forest and into the trees.

PART 1: Let them eat cake! Where to begin!?! We’ll begin with the just-released cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly, celebrating the 100th Episode of THE WALKING DEAD. Tonight’s hot white is a back-lit hot white. That’s a 12x silk at left with two umbrellas behind it. To the right, that’s an unskinned @elinchrom_ltd Octobank and an @profotusa XL umbrella (with a baffle) as fill directly behind me. On this set there were doubles, triples, singles and a 5-shot…and a thousand variations of each! And this was the EASY set!

Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ “The Latino List” goes on view at the San Antonio Museum of Art in Texas

“The Latino List,” an exhibition of 31 large-scale portraits of notable members of the Latino community by famed photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, opened October 6 at the San Antonio Museum of Art in Texas and will be on view through December 31.

Comedian John Leguizamo, actress America Ferrara, former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Henry Cisneros, golfer Chi-Chi Rodriguez, and rapper Pitbull are among the subjects Timothy chose to photograph for the series, which spans entertainers, writers, politicians, athletes, and scholars.

“There’s not one of us in the room who hasn’t been affected by someone in this series,” William Keyse Rudolph, chief curator and American art curator for the museum, told San Antonio magazine in a feature on the exhibition.

“It’s a delicate balance of professionals, a balance of men and women and of nationalities,” Timothy told the magazine.

Rare 1986 Matthew Rolston portrait of Madonna from his new book, “Hollywood Royale,” commands top price at benefit auction in Los Angeles

Earlier this month at a glamorous benefit auction for PHOTO17: The AIDS Monument hosted by Paddle8 in Los Angeles, art collectors were presented with the first opportunity to buy a portrait featured in Matthew Rolston‘s upcoming monograph and exhibition, Hollywood Royale: Out of the School of Los Angeles.

The piece in question was an extremely rare 1986 portrait of Madonna as film idol Marlene Dietrich, an image that Rolston had printed at monumental scale. Madonna as Marlene had the highest reserve and sold for the highest price of the evening—$14,000.

The enthusiastic response is a sure sign that demand for this body of work—which will go on view this month at Berlin’s Camera Work Galerie and in March 2018, just in time for the Academy Awards, at Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles—will be high.

 

Madonna as Marlene, Los Angeles, 1986, by Matthew Rolston. This striking portrait of the pop icon starts the book Hollywood Royale off with a bang, appearing as the first image after the introductions.

 

“We put Matthew last in the live bidding because he had that highest reserve. So I thought, we’ll end on a high note,” says Bobby Heller of OPUS Reps, who organized the auction. “His image was placed as you entered the main room, facing the VIP section, and it was big. A lot of people were taking selfies in front of it.”

 

A selfie that Abdi Nazemian, associate producer of the critically acclaimed new film Call Me by Your Name, took in front of Rolston’s image at the auction.

 

Proceeds from the auction will support the creation of STORIES: The AIDS Monument in the City of West Hollywood. Fittingly, the buyer was David Cooley, founder and CEO of the Abbey, perhaps the best-known and longest-running gay bar/restaurant in LA. Cooley has long been a tireless supporter of the LGBTQ community. He cofounded Gay & Lesbian Elder Housing and hosts an annual Christmas in September event and toy drive for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He has also hosts an annual Oscars viewing party that over the years has raised nearly $2 million for AIDS Project Los Angeles.

Among the covetable works on offer at the auction, which featured a performance by Rufus Wainwright, were prints by Dennis Hooper, Jim Marshall, Ed Ruscha, and Ellen von Unwerth. Adding to the allure of Rolston’s Madonna as Marlene was the fact that it is a unique print, not part of any edition. Accompanying the piece was a personalized copy of Hollywood Royale.

“Matthew personally selected it considering the crowd,” notes Heller. “He was confident that this would be a top-selling piece.”

Sending this piece to a new home! Matthew selected a rare 1986 image of Madonna to donate to the Paddle8 #PHOTO17 auction, which will benefit the ⠀ West Hollywood AIDS Monument. All of us at the studio are proud to support this event, with 100% of the auction proceeds going towards building the AIDS Monument, which will memorialize the 650,000 Americans we lost to AIDS and honor the caregivers and activists who continue the fight to end HIV/AIDS. ⠀ ⠀ – -⠀ ⠀ @the_aids_memorial @theaidsmonument @fineartsolutions #aidsmonument #aids #paddle8 #photo17 #westhollywoodaidsmonument #aidsmemorial #blackandwhitephotography #madonna #matthewrolston #artforacause ⠀ ⠀ – -⠀ ⠀ URL: https://paddle8.com/auction/photo-17/⠀

Brinson+Banks on shooting bright, poppy lifestyle and still-life images and animated GIFs for Moet

Moët recently commissioned Brinson+Banks for a campaign encompassing stills and motion, all of it in the photo duo’s distinct colorful style.

“We’ve done shoots for Moët’s social channels four times now since last winter. This latest one was shot in Palm Springs (in 118 degrees!), a Santa Monica photo studio, up in the mountains of Idyllwild, and even our own dining room,” explain Brinson+Banks.

“For each series we created, we were given color palettes and loose themes (like summer or autumn) along with a dozen or so bottles of delicious Champagne! For the most recent, we had the directive to create motion content that captured the steps of adding three cubes of ice to their Moët Ice collection. The creative freedom really let us play with motion in ways we haven’t for a brand before and we really had fun, especially thinking of ways to play with graphic shapes and color along with stop motion.”

Below, some of the highlights…
