Ed Varites
I partnered up with John in 2001, the rest is history as they say. My background is marketing with short stints in both the advertising and film industries. The last 15 years have been amazing, our business brings us to amazing places and I truly love meeting and collaborating with new people. Our artists are our passion and our family. I love this business, no day is the same. We still get excited when new projects come in and we can connect our photographers and directors with the perfect client. It's not easy, by any means, but it feels great when it works. I'm excited for what the future brings: careers developing, new media, motion, digital, and of course beautiful new work.

When I'm not doing all this, I have 2 other loves:

The New York Football Giants

My dog

John Kenney
John attended the Parson’s School of Design and quickly became immersed in the world of photography. He has spent his entire career guiding and supporting talented artists: both photographers and directors to successfully translate their work into the commercial world. Many have gone on to receive some of the highest awards in the industry and have worked for clients such as Nike, Apple, Coca Cola, IBM, Verizon, Under Armor, Sony and with agencies such as Wieden & Kennedy, Ogilvy, BBDO, Publicis, Droga5, Deutsch, New York Times, Pentagram and NBC just to name a few!

John is passionate about contributing to artists and has shared his experience and knowledge of the photography industry as a guest panelist and lecturer before the APA NY, APA LA, ASMP and SPAR.  He is currently a judge at the International Photo Awards - The Lucie.  John has also contributed to many artists as a reviewer at the Palm Springs and New York Photo Festivals, as well as New York Photo Works.

John enjoys doing his own fine art photography and is in the process of putting a book together that will display his photography, taken over the course of his career.

"My partnership with Ed has enabled me to make a much bigger contribution-----much appreciation for that!"
