Clint Clemens' work in advertising photography has consistently won numerous awards, including Andys, Clios, and an overall first in the Kelleys.
His photographs have been featured in many magazines including Communication Arts (cover), Lurzer's Archive Magazine, Graphis, Photographis, Applied Arts.
In the course of his work, he travels many thousands of miles each year, shooting and interpreting the world as he sees it. His passion is cars and sports, and literally anything that moves. His account list over the last several years includes: Jaguar, DHL, Coke, Toyota, Prada, Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, Volkswagen, Specialized Bikes, The North Face, Asics, New Balance, Bell Helmets, Harley-Davidson, Chris Craft, Jeep Chrysler, NetJets, Nokia, Men’s Journal, Wrangler Jeans, Buell Motorcycles, Indian Motorcycles.
1980: From the start of his career in advertising, Clemens found stimulation in developing tools that push the bounds of visual imagery. Working with his observations of contrast control and how it applies to reflective surfaces, Clemens created the first automotive light bank, which was featured in a cover story by America Photo magazine (1980). The prestigious Communication Arts Magazine ran a cover (1981) of his image demonstrating liquid light on cars. Following both publications, versions of this idea became the norm in automotive lighting.
1980: At the same time, Clemens was experimenting with different ways to convey motion in automotive imagery. Working with a friend who is a Hollywood stuntman, Clemens pioneered the use of long arm camera mounts (“rigs”) firmly attached to a moving vehicle. The process was kept secret for several years as Clemens pushed the bounds of the new look until Stern Magazine (Germany, 1988) published photographs of Clemens shooting an assignment for Porsche. Once known, the process became ubiquitous in car photography world wide.
2002: Computer generated imagery was in its infancy. Clemens knew from experience the cost and difficulty of taking a car to location. Through self education and research, Clemens developed a deep understanding of CGI. In the course of his research, he developed and patented two processes for HDR capture, which is essential to CGI rendering. The result of several years of development was the first photo realistic portfolio of images presented to automotive advertising agencies in America. He has been a featured speaker at CGI conferences hosted by Spheron and Stern Magazine.
In April 2013, Clemens was asked to solve a particularly difficult photographic problem while on assignment for Jaguar in Shanghai. Borrowing from what he had learned in cgi and a lifetime of shooting cars, Clemens recently developed a completely new technique for the photographing of cars on location, without requiring the cars to be available. The process is completely non-cgi, but requires a deep understanding of lighting. Jaguar has commissioned a full library based on this process. Their entire 2013-14 worldwide advertising campaign and all of their literature features imagery done by Clemens. Seeding of the library began in June 2013 with shooting on location in the UK, Switzerland, Italy, and Dubai. The process is unique and never before attempted. The final imagery is indistinguishable from the highest standards of automotive photography.
Clemens has also created a unique body of ultra high resolution images to preserve the cultural heritage of the Tibetan people. These images are part of a project under the direction of Thomas Laird and are on permanent exhibit at the Rubin Museum in New York City.
Widely recognized as a highly successful photographer in a very competitive field, Clemens is often invited to speak at photography seminars about the future direction of the business of photography and it’s future in the digital age. June 2013, Clemens participated in a mini-TED conference hosted by its founder Richard Saul Wurman.

Quite simply put,
Mark Reigelman is a genius.
He bears this burden with the grace
And sophistication not often seen in
Someone so young, talented, and so
very handsome. His genius is exceeded
Only by his modesty and kind benevolence.
Those who know Mark are blessed, and
Those who don't can only hope for
Such good fortune.

ATHAPAINTS is an ongoing color study by New York-based artist, Attie James. It is the culmination of a life experienced through fragmented images meticulously collected, sorted and mood-boarded for constant inspiration. The work aims to dignify thoughts, fears and emotion through layered hues and textures. In each frame, the work distilled the sensory experience of place and time - disorienting the viewer with all-encompassing colors that in turn create a saturated dimension all their own. As a whole, the collection pulses with emotion and tells its own vibrant story.

“At once composed and formless, I owe an obvious debt to the Fauvists’ supremacy of color over form, an aesthetic approach in harmony—or is it tension?—within these structurally informed compositions. My background in architecture is evident is my compositions. Their controlled fluidity is an intentional effort to create something at once structured and formless, but also allowing the process to happen by chance. My works are about being synchronized in time and space. My intent is to allow my work to act as a vessel to receive a conscious awareness of these subconscious events of daily life, which embodies one’s abnormal physical and psychological stages.”
My work represents awkwardly beautiful fantasy worlds. Nature is a subtle, understated condition in my work. I have always been interested in creating works that asks the viewer to participate in the dialogue and or interaction between objects and their environment.
I collect things that have a nostalgic or dreamlike feel that would represent an oeuvre of spirited work that inhibit thought, and early nostalgia electricity with painterly qualities and color over direct representation and realistic values. As I work my way through each layer, the older, beginning layers start to fade away and allow them work their way into the foreground of the composition. Based on my experimental qualities, I choose how the material and its physical presence can rely on another material to do something peculiar and sometimes obscure, to create a language of it’s own. By deconstructing these elements and putting them back together in a pure yet raw fashion, I am able to find a repetitive process that engages the viewer and makes you question your senses, which is the source of matter and the space in which we exist. (through our senses is why we choose to live this physical existence) The overlapping of these materials is also way to collect memories or revert back to lost moments, dreams, or childhood.
Adam Zaff first fell in love with the medium of photography 12 years ago, during a film photography course in high school. That course proved to be vital in his understanding of the medium, and extremely beneficial when he soon transitioned to digital. While at Fordham University in New York, he continued his studies and has not put down the camera since.
Whether shooting events in his native city of Los Angeles, or traveling the world, he almost always have a camera at his side. His unique perspective, coupled with his dedication and skill, have helped him create striking images which transport the viewer, no matter their background.
