Recap: Creative Magic Happens at AtEdge Face-To-Face NYC

What an amazing Face-to-Face event on May 11th at the elegant 20th-floor penthouse at 230 FIFTH in New York. What happens when you bring an exclusive group of 28 agency producers & creatives together with 60 talented AtEdge photographers? Let’s just say there was a lot of excitement in that room.

Twice a year at Face-to-Face, AtEdge photographers  present their work in private, one-on-one meetings to hand-picked creatives that have the need and budgets to hire the highest caliber talent. It’s an opportunity for busy creatives to link up with groundbreaking photographers in a tranquil and casual environment, complete with sumptuous hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

We’re overwhelmed with the success of this year’s event and thrilled to continue this series that has become so important to our industry. Face-to-Face events are held twice a year — each spring in New York, and in alternate cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Minneapolis and London in the fall.

Making new connections and revitalizing old relationships is what Face-to-Face is all about. Please contact Elizabeth Owen, President of AtEdge, if you are interested in attending a future Face-to-Face.

Erik Almas for Høie of Scandinavia

Erik Almas just wrapped up a beautiful shoot in the picturesque country of Norway.

A collaboration with advertising agency HK , the goal was to create “spaces to dream within” for Norwegian bedding company Høie of Scandinavia.

From Erik’s blog:

For us it was textures. Having our models wander through tall grass, being enveloped in low laying fog. This we hoped would create intimacy in an airy and dreamy setting while still making sure the images came across Scandinavian in nature and feel.

Here are some of the gorgeous images, along with an awesome behind-the-scenes video. Enjoy!
