Recap: Face-to-Face Los Angeles 2015

Face-to-Face was held on November 4 at the Hotel Casa del Mar in Santa Monica. This event brought together 50 photographers and 22 hand-picked creatives, art directors and producers from the major Los Angeles agencies. Face-to-Face is an intimate portfolio review and cocktail party that gives AtEdge photographers and their representatives an exclusive opportunity to connect with top creatives. During these events, photographers and creatives/producers are matched up for private, one-on-one meetings based on the relevancy of the work they are doing.

Face-to-face is a chance for busy creatives to get to know some very innovative photographers in a relaxed, comfortable environment, away from their busy work day. Held several times during the year, Face-to-Face is just one of the ways that AtEdge connects top-echelon photographers with the world’s most active and influential art directors.

We are very excited to continue hosting and expanding this successful series of events for our advertisers. Please Contact Elizabeth Owen, Vice-President of AtEdge, if you are interested in future Face-to-Face events.
