In what is hopefully becoming a grand tradition, current and new members of the Creative Hall of Fame gathered on January 22, 2013 for the Second Edition of my Official Portrait as once again The One Club held its annual induction ceremony at New York’s Gotham Hall. Featured in the image above are (seated left to right) Cliff Freeman, Paula Green, Ed McCabe, and new inductee W+K's Jim Riswold. Standing LtoR are W+K's David Kennedy and Dan Wieden; this year inductee into the Educator Hall of Fame Richard Wilde; George Lois, new inductee Steve "1984" Hayden; 2012 inductee Joe Pytka; and Ralph Ammirati and with former partner in one of the industry's great '80's shops & new inductee Martin ("The Ultimate Driving Machine") Puris. It was an honor to be in the room with these Icons of Advertising, let alone photograph them.
First week in May: it's the annual Creative Week Festival in New York City. In honor of the 2012 iteration, I'll be posting a collection of some of my favorite "Creative" Portraits. These photos feature some of the top creatives in advertising as cast in roles of some "classical" creative stereotypes -- all in good fun, of course. First up, Kevin Roddy, Chairman/CCO at Publicis & Hal Riney in the role of "Dark Genius".
Paper or Plastic?! Window or Aisle?? Paper or plastic?! Aisle or Window?! Tuesday's Creative Week portrait features the great Hal Curtis of Wieden & Kennedy as he duels with the Inner Voices that haunt all creative minds . . .
It's Wednesday of Creative Week. We are right in the middle of it. Which way will the scales tip? Susan Credle, Chief Creative Officer of Leo Burnett USA plays the part of Creative Justice.

, Managing Director of The Gate Worldwide
, first approached me about creating executive portraits of his agency team six years ago. Technologically speaking, it was so long ago, that the first set was done using my Hasselblad and film! Practically every year since we’ve teamed up to get portraits of new members of the agency though by now it’s all pro-digital of course and the equipment has gotten so much lighter and more portable we simply set up a studio in the agency conference room. And this year, it was finally time to get a new one of Beau himself.
The One Club
held their annual Hall of Fame
induction ceremony at New York’s Gotham Hall and quite the induction it was. The late Steve Jobs
was the first client ever to honored for his contributions to advertising and Lee Clow
accepted on his behalf with some great stories as well as probably that rare chance to experience the great “The Crazy Ones” ad with Job himself doing the voice over. Joe Pytkta
, he (in)famous director noted for his work on Perrier, Nike (think Michael Jordan), with the Beatles and too many other incredible commercials to mention, was inducted; as well as legendary copywriter Paula Green
(Avis: We Try Harder). Additionally, Rob Lawton
was there as the first ever teacher to be inducted. In keep with tradition, many previous inductees, the greats of advertising were there.
It made for a VERY memorable -- if somewhat pressured -- formal portrait session.
