Get inside the mind of veteran Clio award-winning photographer and retoucher Rick Wahlstrom.

“I then mentioned they would not believe the amount of stupid people that thought I actually got an elephant on a bike, and the conference call suddenly went silent. I broke the silence asking, ‘Did I just call someone stupid?’”

The Renewal Workshop is eliminating apparel waste by incentivizing brands and retailers to enter the closed-loop economy: no more lost dollars from landfilling jackets with broken zippers.

See how their no-waste mindset extends to product photography, and how they built a photo studio on an Indiegogo budget.

“E-com and product photography are often overlooked, but never unnoticed by consumers… If brands invest just a little bit in great e-commerce studio photography, invest just a little bit in great lifestyle photography and good talent, there’s no reason that a startup can’t look like a $100 million brand.”

Mark Tesi, former Global Creative Director for Reef and Roxy, shares his philosophy on creative direction and fashion photography for brands big and small, in our latest In Focus interview.

We are always looking to improve how we run our business, and that includes how we measure staff engagement. Like many companies, we used to give our staff a long, tedious, once-a-year survey to find out how they felt about their experience working for us. But we are an innovative company, and a once-a-year-survey just wasn’t a proactive or innovative approach.

To solve this, we developed our “How R U” (HRU) survey, a daily survey that asks our staff to reflect on how they felt during their shift, as well as a chance to provide direct written commentary to our Human Resource staff about ways we can improve. We have created an entire set of SOP’s on handling staff reporting that they are unhappy at work (which includes optional face-to-face consultation with HR), we have empirical data on the overall sentiment our staff holds towards our workplace, and we are using staff input to make improvements to how we run our business.

Yearly engagement surveys are an antiquated approach to empowering employees, so we implemented a daily flash survey.

We asked our talented staff to send us their best photography that they felt captured the beauty of their respective cities, and they did not disappoint! Check out their images and hear the inspiration for the images from the photographers themselves.
