I just put a few more tearsheets up on my site in the tearsheets gallery including my first published piece in Germany. Go check it out.
I was just informed this afternoon that my Garden and Gun cover from last summer was selected as Cover of the Year by MAGS (magazine association of the southeast). A pretty good way to start the weekend if I don’t say so myself…
Im in the middle of a multi day shoot spread over a few weeks and its turning out pretty awesome so far. Once I can divulge details, i will complete with images and polaroids (yes, actually shooting polaroids commercially…).
I finally feel like I have enough good, published work to warrant a tearsheets gallery so, I made one today. Go to http://www.hollisbennett.com and look to the bottom left and there will be a link to a new gallery. I have a bunch more that need to go up but they first need to go to print so, I figure this will be a constantly updated process.
I just received an email letting me know that Garden and Gun, the southern lifestyle magazine I shoot for, has just cleaned up in the awards department.
First and foremost, they have won the National Magazine Award for General excellence in the Food/Travel/Design category beating out the likes of Conde’ Nast Traveller, Martha Stewart Living and Saveur, all of whom have much larger budgets.
G/G also received a James Beard award and numerous awards at the MAGS (Magazine Association of the South).
So, here’s to making more and better work!
