Claxton Represents is now BETTER THAN EVER!!!

While I had great success as a traditional rep, that wasn't satisfying all of my business and personal goals.  I really like to get my hands dirty and get involved in more ways than one, so I'm super happy to announce that we now include photo editing, production and art direction services!  I've expanded the services we offer and changed the roster to an artist management structure so I can focus on more of what I love to better serve the photo community. Check out the new website at www.claxtonrepresents.com.  I LOVE feedback if you've got it, critiques are welcome.  Please forward the site along to anyone who may be interested!

I appreciate your time and we look forward to working with you, cheers to all of our continued success! - Sarah Claxton

Attic Fire for Freed-Hardman University / ESA

Attic Fire recently traveled to Tennessee to photograph Freed-Hardeman University, a college in Henderson.  They were commissioned to photograph the Hope Barber Shull Academic Resource Center which expanded an existing 1 story building into a much larger building that is 2 stories on one end and 1 story on the other end.  The architect was Wendell Brown and the interior designer was Kearra Barkley from ESa.  Fantastic job, everyone!

To Each His Own Place, a personal project by Eric Prine

Eric Prine has been working on a series of environmental portraits that consist of "real" people in their most comfortable places.  This series has resulted in great new work for Eric, but not only that, it's expanded his portfolio and his shooting style as well.  While Eric is more widely for his landscape work, he also loves and is often hired to photograph, people.  

It's so important as artists to stretch our minds and expand our way of thinking, so that we don't get stuck in habits.  Personal projects are a great way to broaden our horizons and our skill sets, and to continue growing and learning in our field.

We want to shoot your next campaign!

Attic Fire at The Barnes Foundation

Located in Philadelphia in the art museum district, The Barnes Foundation is an american educational art and horticultural institution.  Designed by Architects Tod Williams and Bille Tsien this building houses a notable collection of original Van Gogh's, Matisse's and Picasso's along with many more famous works of art.  The Barnes has quite a scandalous history which has been documented in the movie "The Art of the Steal", we recommend it!  And for everyone at the DNC this week we recommend swinging by, it's quite a different museum experience.

Eric Prine for National Education Association

Eric Prine recently traveled to DC for this commercial shoot for the National Education Association.  The images are of real educators in their own classrooms at an elementary school in the DC suburbs.  I was lucky to accompany him as producer, and we had a blast photographing 15 people over a hectic 2 days.

To see more from this shoot, check out Eric's BLOG.

You can find Eric's portfolio at www.ericprine.com and on Workbook.

Seth Lowe, 52 Portraits Project

Seth Lowe has been working on a 52 portraits project and we wanted to share some of his awesome images!  This personal project is great for so many reasons....being able to set aside time to play with lighting, working on a long-term project, etc.  We love it because it shows Seth's studio abilities and really highlights how he connects with his subjects.  We'd love to hear what you think!  

New Services & TBT from the Archives!

We're expanding Claxton Represents and offering some new services, including photo editing, production and art direction!  Sarah Claxton was a photo editor for a national magazine and had some great times producing, art directing and editing some covers.  Here's a fun throwback from the archives:
