Re: Who on earth is responsible for Annie Liebowit

Yes, um..... Box was doing pretty much all her work, but, that may have changed. I heard that she was not too happy about the puff piece/promo article in The New Yorker about Box/Pascal that told the layman that her pictures are heavily composited and retouched, so maybe there was a falling out. Also, her finances are crumbling in public - as mentioned above, she just pawned the rights to all her work for a large sum http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/24/ar...%20shop&st=cse and is being sued by a lighting company and someone else, so maybe Pascal is waiting for a check, too.
I just looked at a book of hers that was supposed to tell me how she did things http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/14/bo...ibovitz&st=cse , and there was no mention at all about retouching, so, hey, screw her. Not only does she show us no respect, but, I'll bet, she gets it for free or cheap. Jumped the Shark, indeed.

Re: Who on earth is responsible for Annie Liebowit

"I'll bet, she gets it for free or cheap" tell me about it, Ive had some incredible piss take offers for work from Photographers in the last few weeks. To some of them its apparently just button pushing that they are paying for. As always, its a bad idea for them to get too distant from the people who craft their work, this is why some of them seem to have absolutely no idea of the physical work involved. This attitude will hopefully have consequences in the end. Most people who are coming through now are doing their OWN post, or at least trying to - at least with this generation they have some clue.

I suspect an eager assistant, of which she has a never ending supply, who said, "hey, I know photoshop!".

Or maybe things are so bad, she's sitting there with Scott Kelby's "Easy tricks for Photoshop 5" herself right now. That would explain a few things

Actually, I did once in an e-mail, out of frustration and rage. He ignored me.

we should open a poll about it and send him the link.. at least for the sake of his wife; it's just a matter of time before she does something, leaving a note behind: Dear Scott, I couldnt take another joke.

Oh no, sir, check out his "credits" in various places. His wife is cheering him on as VP or something. It's a comedy team!
