Photo Stylist / Designer
Ethan Allen Global, Inc., Danbury CT
My role is to execute projects for advertising and editorial photography, specific to magazine, print, television, web and social media. I design and style specific room environments to achieve a desired projection: collaborate with our in-house merchants; select upholstery, casegoods, fabrics, accessories; work with lead carpenter on set architecture and design; choose appropriate props; work with assigned photographer to capture all required imagery, discuss angles, lighting, etc; work with hired talent on commercial production and print shoots. All photography and commercials are shot at our photo studio or on-location.
Aside from my creative responsibilities, I manage and maintain files for photography projects, attend meetings with merchants, keep up with merchandise production and delivery status and troubleshoot issues, acting as liaison between departments ; I select and edit images for our corporate Pinterest account; I am involved in scouting locations and in television audio/video content and editing, collaborating with our Video Editor.
