Hard to believe it's already the end of May! We certainly are not sad to say goodbye to our winter coats and boots and whip out the white pants and summer dresses! It's time for summer people!
And since summer is here, it also means LeBook NY Connections is coming up! We are really excited to announce that JMI will once again be participating in LeBook this year! For those of you who don't know about LeBook or the Connections event, here is the low down (courtesy of www.lebook.com):
LeBook is the world's first and only trade publication for the Beauty, Design, Entertainment, Publishing, Advertising and Fashion industries. It's become an esssential communication tool for advertising agencies, press and fashion brands! In 2005 LeBook launched CONNECTIONS, a custom-made tradeshow for the creative community. At CONNECTIONS, an international network of creative talent and decision-makers gather under the LeBook lable to form a new, living, breathing pulse of what's going on in the world of trendsetting image-making.
Will you be attending LeBook?! We hope so! Be sure to come say hello if you're there! The event is by registration only so please register here
Hope you have a great holiday weekend!
We are excited to announce another exhibition of Hugh Stewart's work in Sydney! To celebrate the arrival of Canon Professional Services, Sun Studios Australia is hosting a bunch of events, including an exhibition of 50 of Hugh Stewart's Portraits! See below for more information!
James Merrell has done it again! Earlier this year he ventured to the elegant and regal countryside of Wales and the cover and feature story at the home of Austrian Countess Elisabeth Eltz and her designer husband Mark Gillette. It's no surprise that James was shot the cover for the "Best of Britain" issue of Traditional Home! The house is characterized as, "effortlessly elegant" which is beautifully captured in James' images, if we do say so.
Take a peek below to see the cover as well as the article!
Mikkel Vang's latest story for Elle Decor has all the makings for an afternoon of lounging: a sunny field and more outdoor chair options than any back yard could need! With the long weekend coming up, we hope you're planning some time to sit back, relax, and flip through Mikkel's beautiful story in this month's issue!
Well, it's Friday and GORGEOUS out. Weather for the weekend is looking pretty good according to our sources...are you gonna do something outdoors? If so, you should check out the article in the June issue of Parents Magazine all about safeguarding kids from harsh summer sun! Amy Postle headed down to Miami to shoot for Parents and had a blast doing so! Adorable shots and an informative article all in one! Check out the article to learn a thing or two about protecting your childs precious skin!
Be sure to lather up and enjoy the weekend!
TV talkshow personality Wendy Williams agreed to participate in a "makeunder" of epic proportion! Wendy and her regular hair and makeup crew were quite skeptical of the makeunder team and what it all meant claiming that what makeunder means to XOJane is vastly different than what it meant to them. Ultimately surrendering to the team, everyone got down to business. Here is one of the "madeunder" shots:
Wendy stepped out of her comfort zone and into some comfy clothes and opened up to the XOJane team. After seeing her "madeunder" and learning some interesting new facts and quirky insights (ex: that regular Tobasco sauce is not "hot" enough for her so she keeps a special bottle with her) we gained a serious new affinity for the "big hair" star.
It seems like Mother Nature and Father Time decided to skip spring and go straight to summer this year. And we're not complaining, especially after seeing Marcus Nilsson's cover story for the June issue of Martha Stewart Living. Nothing kicks off summer like fresh-picked berries! (Or fresh-bought from the local green market for us city-dwellers.) Marcus Nilsson traveled up to Martha Stewart's estate to photograph her beautiful garden full of seasonal fruit, and the treats you can make with them. That chiffon cake with strawberries and cream looks perfect for a Memorial Day BBQ!
And he sailed off through night and day
and in and out of weeks
and almost over a year
to where the wild things are.
For this weeks Photo Phriday, we found it necessary to honor the genius that is Maurice Sendak. Saddened by the news of his passing earlier this week, much of the world spent time reflecting upon and recalling memories of reading his beautiful (sometimes considered controversial) storybooks. Most of us know him for Where the Wild Things Are but he had an extensive portfolio of work beyond that including a book published last year.
If you aren't familiar with his work, clicking through these slideshows which include portraits, illustrations and images representing Sendak's life will help you see the true visionary that he was. Slideshows (linked below) courtesy of The Guardian and Talking Points Memo.
While it isn't the happiest Photo Phriday, we hope you have a great weekend and a very Happy Mother's Day!
The cliche is to serve your mom breakfast in bed for Mother's Day. Breakout from the "norm" and do something really special for Mom! Forget the eggs and bacon and take the recipes from the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen and their adorable "Mother's Day Tea" brunch feature! She will absolutely love these creative and cute springtime recipes shot by Marcus Nilsson.
Happy Mother's Day!
The PDN Photo Annual 2012 winners have been announced and this year's Photo Annual issue is now avaliable! We wanted to wish a huge congratulations to Frank Herholdt who won the Stock Photography award for his image "Gymnast In the Forest". Shot in a forest outside of Cape Town South Africa, Frank played the role of both photographer and art director.
Frank says that he was inspired by early morning exersise for this particular shot and was excited to share that the model was a "genuine gymnast" that a local production company found. Frank also shared that the shoot took only a few hours because he had spent time at the location the day before checking the light, timing of the sun and rigging the ropes.
Congratulations Frank on this award!
