New, Sexy, and Gritty: Light & Denim, by Daniel Rosenthal

Posted in Agency News by K2Creative on August 26, 2015

Photographer Daniel Rosenthal is on fire.  Check out his latest shoot below.  HOT.  From Daniel:

“My aim for ‘Light and Denim’ was to shoot something unapologetic. Something with skin & expression & movement, & I feel like it’s one of those rare shoots that comes out pretty much as I had envisioned.

We’re ecstatic to announce that Barbara’s new show is opening this weekend at Bau – Xi Gallery in Toronto. The show will be hanging until November 29th and cannot be missed, especially if you are in the area.

If you are looking for some inspiration before we head into the chilly months ahead or simply want some thing visual to swoon over check out Barbara Cole’s latest show Meditations. It is no secret that I’d personally love to cover my apartment walls with all of her images, such beautiful pieces of art!

Happy almost October. It is hard to imagine that Summer is over when it was 80s  and sunshine last weekend in NYC. k2 creative Mgmt has been busy introducing our new photographer, Daniel Rosenthal (seriously check out his work already!) the feedback has been amazing!

The artists have been busy shooting in just about every edge of the world: Barbara Cole preparing for her new show (Bau-Xi Gallery) November 15th in Toronto, Lou Bopp shooting up and down the South for a new project, Ashton Worthington just returned from Afghanistan working on a personal project, Daniel Rosenthal covering New York Fashion Week and Joshua Scott on location.
The scheduling has been fun needless to say and we’re ready to bring on the Fall. We’ll be posted our new campaigns once launched over October and November on Facebook and twitter – follow us.

In the meantime we’ve decided to give a little taste from BTS (behind the scene) shoots this past month that k2 creative artists have been working on. Not to mention we’ve saved the best for last! #danielRosenthal #shootininskivves #timessquare #noshame

Before They Were Rockstars : Daniel Rosenthal

Daniel RosenthalWe’re thrilled to write our newest Before They Were Rockstars, all about our new photographer, Daniel Rosenthal. Generally, we like to categorize our photographers. Lifestyle, still life, blah blah. But we can’t define Daniel. Is he fashion? Sure. The work is sexy and edgy. Is it beauty? Portraits? Lifestyle? Yeah – sometimes. Daniel shoots people in their rawest form, capturing poignant, beautiful moments. And when he’s not doing that, he’s photographing children. His kids work might as well hang in a gallery. It’s gorgeous. And to top all that off, he’s a humble, down to earth kind of guy. You’ve got to meet him, and you’ve got to see the work for yourself. Check it out on our site, with more work going up soon!  And scroll down below to see some imagery of young Daniel.

Now, without further ado, we proudly present Daniel Rosenthal.

Where are you from Originally?

Emmett, Idaho! Home of the Cherry Festival, Aaron Paul, and an outlandishly high obesity rate.

What did you intend to down when you “grew up”?
Be a zoologist and professional football player and have children and a wife by the time I was 27. Instead I am a 32 year old single fashion photographer in NYC. The ideals of children are comically (and fortunately) under informed!

What were you like as a teen? Do you see reflections of your teen self in your adult life?
As a teen, I would say I was reserved. Calculated. Cautious. Thoughtful. As an adult, I have intentionally preserved certain aspects of all this “seriousness”, but chosen to throw in a bit of spontaneity, laughter, and what I’d call a “measured recklessness”. I’ve learned that life is too short and unpredictable not to at least seek to be present in every moment – good or bad – and accept the challenge of beneficial risk as it presents itself. I moved to New York in the dead of winter with no job, no friends, $800, and a place to crash on Staten Island for a month BECAUSE I saw an opportunity for growth and my intuition told me it was the right thing to do. To continue to say “yes” to living life fully and with as much courage as I can muster is the cornerstone of my adult life.

What was your first job ever?
My dad was a contractor and my mom always had odd jobs growing up. When I was 10, she had a paper route in the country. On Sundays at 4am, I would sit in the back of our bronco with my sister and roll papers and put them in clear plastic sleeves. The smell of the paper and the movement of the car made me sick. Every. Single. Time.

Through my teenage years I worked construction with my dad, and when I was 17 my mom started an ice cream and sandwich shop called The Double Dip in Emmett. It was honestly delicious. I still crave those sandwiches. So fresh, packed with vegetables and roast beef and some mustard and vinegar. Mm… perfection. I worked there through my senior year of high school and then through my first year of college, I served tables at the olive garden.

I had to pay for school myself, but I was determined to still have adventures. After my freshman year, I went to Alaska and worked 2 full time jobs in anchorage. I served tables at a marriot in the morning and then I was a turn down maid in the evening at the Cook Hotel. It was just me and 20 Philippine. They were fantastic. The next summer I worked 4 jobs in Jackson hole (shipping manager at a gart sports, construction, busser at the mangy moose, server at the calico). The fall semester of my junior year I spent in Hawaii where I learned to surf and read entire books in barnes and nobles so I didn’t actually have to buy them. I think I actually read the entire harry potter series there.

The next summer I stayed in Boise to take some summer classes and worked as a bike technician. After senior year, I went to sitka, AK to work on a fishing boat. I worked 14 hour days for weeks on end. I learned that I could be seasick AND haul in an anchor at the same time. I caught a six foot blue shark on a ten foot rope. I was so tired at times that I could sleep sitting up in the rain on an ice chest in the back of a 30 foot boat while it went full speed across a choppy ocean. I got to hold a puffin and I’m FASCINATED by ling cod. I saw a man catch a 120lb halibut on salmon gear. That’s like winning the tour de france on a tricycle.

What is the biggest trouble you got yourself into?
As vanilla as it sounds, I’m not sure I’ve ever been in any real trouble. I had a bit of a rambunctious stage my senior year of high school and I got called to the office a few times but that’s about it.

What was your first job in the photo business?
I think the first gig I ever booked was a wedding in a park in Emmett, ID for $200 in 2007. Interestingly enough, I will be photographing their first child in October!

How did you get into photography? What is it that kept you here?
I got into photography at the end of my senior year of college. It fascinated me. it was the first thing in my life that truly held my attention for an extended period of time. There’s no “conquering” or arrival, only progression. With every shoot I do, I can see how it can be better and I feel a hope and a sense of adventure in it. I always wonder what “will be”. What beauty will I get to be a part of in the future?

What is your dream project in this business?
I think my dream project would be shooting Daniel Craig for the cover of Vanity Fair.

If you could do anything else, what would it be?
Honestly, I can’t picture myself doing anything else just yet. I do have a dream, though, of owning a surf shop on a tropical island and living a very quiet, slow, relational life. Or maybe back in Idaho when I have a family. But for now, and for some time from now, this is where I want to be and what I want to be doing.

K2 Creative has a new website

Posted in Agency News by K2Creative on October 29, 2013

We’re ecstatic to launch our new website – a bit of a “face lift” for K2 Creative Management. For us, it has been a long time coming.  We’ve talked about this new site for over a year after having one hell of a time with our first site.  We’ve learned that a website is organic, and will continue to change and grow.

We’d go an inch to get things going (dang coding) and then we’d switch gears into being accountants, agents, producers and our own assistants as we got busy throughout the last year. Don’t get me wrong – we’re not complaining one bit. It has been an amazing year and we’ve been waiting anxiously to show off all the new work from the K2 Creative artists. They’ve been… well, BUSY to say the least.

The artists have been working on launching books and gallery showings from Canada to the South. We’ve worked with some great clients in the past year including Oral B, Manpower, Intel, Essence, John Frieda, Comcast, Jim Beam, Men’s Health, TechnoMarine, Conair, W Hotels, Coty and Gillette to name a few.

We hope you dig the new work as much as we do!
