3 years ago I knew 2 people that worked at the eComm retailer Gilt Group. As of this month I know a dozen.
Years ago photographers shot catalog for weeks on end. In fact this trend of shooting in studios were other catalog shoots were going on is how many of us met other assistants and networked with other photographers; which in turn led to more jobs with varied clientele. eComm has pretty much replaced this long catalog shoots except for a few instances. Check out this video from Bloomberg TV about Gilt Group. A makeup artist friend of mine Kim Weber shows up in it a few times.

Earlier this week, the story of a 19-year-old model’s face-to-jizz encounter with the human version of a white windowless van Terry Richardson went viral and it was one of the many horror stories from women who had to scrub their skin with a Chore Boy after shooting with Lady CaCa’s homeboy.

You know your brand is in trouble when there is a petition against you on Change.org and another page on Face Book.
The link to this Change.org petition found it's way into my inbox this afternoon. It appears to have been started late last year which begs the question why have so few people participated thus far.
Those of us working in the commercial photo industry have all heard the stories about Terry R. over the years. We have had tales of excess described over lunch during photo shoots, or in some cases had first hand experiences that reveal in graphic detail his exploits.
