It’s no small feat to capture beautiful portrait shots, but our Emissary Artist Walter Smith nails it every time. As Walter told us, “This was a really fun project. The clients and agency really enjoyed the shoot and it was one of the most productive shoots I had this fall. It really helps when the subjects are open to my suggestions – some needed no suggestions at all!”
We’re incredibly proud and excited to announce that Emissary Artist, Laura Flippen, was just named to PDN’s 30 for 2014. Each year PDN curates a list of 30 new and emerging photographers to watch – this year there were over 300 photographers from around the world nominated by art buyers, photo editors, art directors, educators and fellow photographers.
As if we needed any more inspiration for shedding our heavy winter bedding – Laura Flippen’s recent work for Target’s Threshold brand is here!
With the line’s focus on personality, exceptional quality and outstanding design, it’s no wonder that she loves collaborating with the Target team on each of these projects.

It’s the Year of the Horse, and a wooden horse at that. This horse optimistically pushes forward, so it’s supposed to be a good year for escaping ruts especially regarding managing finances and hardships. It’s also giving and supportive so look forward to finding exceptional kindness in others. This beast of burden possesses a special brand of compassion and protectiveness. It will have your back on the road ahead, which holds the promise of generosity and fortune. So cast out any fears of this year’s journey, grab your spurs, and mount up, it should be a hell of a ride!
This fall, Emissary Artist Dan Goldberg teamed up with Leo Burnett for a couple days in studio to shoot for Silk. In addition to Dan’s excellent lighting and photography, the effects of the shoot came together with the help of the model maker and art director to construct the almond and leaf character. 16 cartons of milk later, we’re impressed the little guy stood up to the challenge!
Thanks to the talented team of art directors at Leo Burnett, Denison Kusano & Kate Sullivan, for such a great shoot. Beautiful work, Dan!
Michael and his team always deliver some fun stuff, and this was no exception. Check out the final images below as well as an original brainstorming sketch, behind the scenes, and Michael in a ghost costume…boo! Way to go, Michael!
