E Pluribus Magic

‘Santas’ by the amazing Ashton Worthington – part of his ENTHUSIAST project and a tribute to the magic of the holiday season.  From Ashton:

1200 miles, 6 states, 9 Santas.

As part of my ongoing ENTHUSIAST project photographing portraits of people involved in cosplay, historical reenactment, LARP, etc, I’ve spent the beginning of December traveling up and down the East Coast shooting Santas (my new favorite sentence). I find it beautiful how people come together from vastly disparate backgrounds, form communities, and become like family and find a place they can be their sincere selves. There isn’t an ouce of irony or joke-ness about these Santas – they live for this. They truly understand what they represent to children and how deep an effect they can have on their lives, and take that responsibility incredibly seriously. I BELIEVE.

See more of the project at enthusiast.ashtonography.com and on Instagram at @ashtonography

And from all of us at k2creative:  Happy Holidays. Stay Jolly.

This is K2

Posted in Agency News, Uncategorized by K2Creative on April 11, 2018

Oh you know, just reminiscing about the start of K2 Creative and all the things that brought us here…  thought it’d be fun to add us to our blog!

little know facts about our agency

  • K2 was cofounded by Kristy Caruso and Katie Ryan. The concept for the agency (keep things simple, work hard, no divas) came about while the two were on a road trip, on a night they were freezing and electricity was scarce. They had nothing else to do – but talk about the future.
  • K2 began 2009 in the midst of the economic breakdown. Why? Well…why not?
  • Katie likes popcorn more than food.
  • Kristy likes to sing. Badly. All the time.
  • K2’s motto came to be long before the agency. The company sticks by it and will do so as they continue to grow. SAVE THE DRAMA FOR YOUR MAMA. Because really, who needs it?
