Lisa Predko‘s recent collaboration with Trixie Mattel found her creating visuals for Trixie’s new country album, Two Birds. Lisa perfectly executed the album artwork concept, which was inspired by country albums from the 60s & 70s.
The last Face-to-Face event of 2016 recently took place two months ago at The Marquette Hotel’s Windows at Minnesota, the newly renovated banquet space on top of the tallest skyscraper in Minnesota. AtEdge photographers used this occasion to present their portfolios to a group of 20 hand-picked creatives, art directors, and producers from all the top Minneapolis ad agencies.
Face-to-Face events are held twice a year— each spring in New York, and in alternate cities like Minneapolis, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco & London in the fall. The events provide 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.
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.

“Creatives & buyers get so bombarded by emails, etc., so having an in-person event that goes beyond the usual ‘Check out our latest work…’ really helps us appreciate both the photography and the person behind it.”
Eric Husband, Creative Director, Solve
“I always find the Face to Face events to be one of my more important marketing tools. They get me in front of creatives that I might not have otherwise connected with otherwise. The quality of the events are always top-notch and I know I’ll only be meeting with the highest caliber art buyers/creative directors.”
Dana Hursey, Photographer
“Loved the range and talent that came through. It was wonderful meeting the person behind the photographs. Learning about the process and the back story really helps you remember and appreciate it more.”
Puja Shah, Associate Creative Director, Carmichael Lynch
“AtEdge creates the perfect environment for meeting creatives. It is always a thrilling and exciting night and extremely rewarding to watch creatives go nuts over your work.”
Bonnie Holland, Photographer
“I loved how well orchestrated the evening was. The break in the middle came at the right time and gave everyone an opportunity to engage in conversation with attendees they were not paired with. I have a much greater appreciation for the work when I understand the photographer’s background and personality.”
Natasha Nikolia, Senior Integrated Media Producer, Target
“I loved that the photographers I met with had work that was relevant to the clients I work with.”
Lisa Crawford, Creative Producer, KNOCK

I think it’s pretty clear I want to spend ALL of my holidays with my favorite muse, Trixie Mattel!!!:) I’m not sure if you have heard, but Trixie has moved to Hollywood to become an even bigger star!!! In honor of the move, our latest shoot was inspired by vintage movie star promotional photographs combined with a little bit of creepy bunny to help celebrate the holiday! Also, just for the record, rabbits are known to be herbivores and no baby chicks were harmed in the making of these photographs!
