Kris Kachikis, Los Angeles
Credits include many music videos (Elvis Costello, Eminem, Sean Lennon) and commercials for such clients as Levis, Pepsi, MasterCard and Motorola. Kachikis is known for his use of natural light photography.
His last film, Sundance Film Festival entry American Son for director Neil Abramson, starring Nick Cannon, Tom Sizemore and Melonie Diaz, inspired “a deserved salute to cinematographer Kris Kachikis’ sharp scopings” from The Hollywood Reporter’s Duane Byrge.
Among his film and documentary work are Chocolate Tour, directed by Spike Jonze and Steely Dan in Concert.
Kachikis graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1990 with a degree in Radio, Television and Film and English-Creative Writing. He is represented in Los Angeles by Dattner Dispoto and Associates.See examples of his work at: http://kachikis.com/index.html#cat-commercials
Adam Hinton, London
Hinton received a basic SLR camera from his dad at age 12 and in his words “became fascinated with a new way of looking at the world and the ability to record things of importance to me. It was a way of marking out my world.”
At age 18, he bought professional level equipment and launched a career that also honors his interest in politics.
“Studying photojournalism in the ‘80s enabled me to articulate my feelings, beliefs and values into a visual medium that I could communicate to others. I would take photos at all the demonstrations I went to: anti-apartheid, anti-nuclear, the miners’ strike and the picket lines at Wapping. I hoped, and still do, that my images could portray something of the way we live today, how each action has a reaction, that nothing is without cause or response.”
Hinton’s recent work includes a Nike 2012 Campaign working for Wieden + Kennedy; a San Miguel, Spain, shoot for Saatchi & Saatchi, and Ladies Day at Ascot. His clients include British Airways, BBC, BMW, Coca–Cola, and Sony. In 2011, exhibits of his work included IPA Best in Show, Splashlight Studios, New York; Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art, Turku, Finland; Sony World Photography Awards 2011, Somerset House, London, and Voices for the Alternative Congress House, Trades Union Congress, London. He is represented by Wyatt-Clarke & Jones, London.
