We are proud and pleased to announce the launch of Pix Management!
Pix is the love child of founder and principal, Janice Baker and her husband (and somewhat silent partner,) John Baker. Together, they bring over 40 years of experience and expertise in the worlds of advertising, fashion, art, beauty, media and publishing. He knows everyone in the advertising and media worlds and she holds her own in the fashion world... Forever the champion of artistic talent, Janice has played on all sides of the creative field. From artist, to client to manager and team player, Janice has worked on staff as a photo art director/photo editor/art director at Victoria's Secret, Jones Apparel Group, Gap, Liz Claiborne and J.Crew and has had the pleasure of collaborating with some of the fashion world's top talent. Her fine art education and 15+ years of experience in the corporate world make her a natural to manage the careers of her very talented (and really nice) stable of artists whom she is proud to represent.
This is the beginning of a good thing. We hope you will join us in our new venture. Here is some recent news from our artists...and please stay tuned for much more.
Shaina Fishman was recently featured in an article in The New York Post!
She has also recently wrapped up her 4th annual charity calendar which she shoots for The Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City, NJ. The 4th annual Liberty Tails Calendar features dogs and cats that have been rescued and placed in homes by the Liberty Humane Society. Each month highlights a heart-warming adoption story and a distinctive photograph that brings out the beauty and personality of the former shelter animal turned loving family pet. Representing the goals of the Liberty Humane Society to recuperate and place abandoned animals in loving homes, the animals photographed are Liberty Humane Society “graduates” that have since been adopted.
Kevin Shapiro recently did hair and make-up for videos for Cyndi Lauper's website, True Colors Give a Damn Campaign, which aims to put and end to hate and intolerance.
Guillermo de Zamacona is currently basking in the afterglow of a two year whirlwind that is his Project Monarch, a gorgeous fashion- inspired collection of photography which aims to draw attention to an environmentally devastated part of the Mexican mountains where 300 million monarchs live and breed. What Guillermo also discovered on his shoot was that, like the monarch, the people of that area in Mexico also were in trouble. His work brings this plight to the forefront and his images are spellbinding. A true work of passion and beauty that should not be missed.
Guillermo's show, which had it's debut at Milk Gallery in New York City, also traveled to Mexico City's Fizz Gallery, where it virtually sold out! Project Monarch will also travel to London's Scream Gallery in January 2011. Articles were featured in Vanity Fair, The New York Times and Interview Magazine.
Amy Fronczkiewicz is awaiting the build of her new studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Stay tuned for news on her new space that she's hoping to occupy in early 2011!
