  • Get to Know: Scott Horne

    Going back to the theme of ‘how to become a prop stylist,’ Scott Horne is another textbook example of the right path to prop styling.  Scott got his foot in the door by initially assisting Big Leo alum Cindy DiPrima (among others).  He quickly learned the ropes, and when we had way more calls than […]

    This week, Mary and Maria will be over at NYCFotoworks, doing portfolio reviews.  Telling it like it is.  Pulling no punches.  Straight shooting.  If you want a smile and a bunch of compliments, then you should go somewhere else.  If you’re looking for honest constructive criticism, look no further!  Either way, stop by and say […]

  • Q&A with James Worrell

    Over at MagCloud, James Worrell has a new interview up; it’s all about his approach to promos and getting his ideas out into the wild.  While we certainly do a lot of digital here at Big Leo, we always always try to emphasize printed work.  That’s the funny paradox of our time – when everyone […]
