There has been a lot of chatter this month about CP&B. This article from Ad Age “A Tale of Two Crispins” talks a lot about the agency and how they became the agency of the decade! I had my own experiences with them back in the late 90′s while I lived in Miami. I shot the 3 head guys Jeff Hicks, Chuck Porter and Alex Bogusky at their offices. I also shot one of their AD/CW teams for an all star teamwork story but can’t find those images. They are buried deep in the archives, still on slide film! I also shot Alex at his home once. Being in Miami then, they were the big name, the only agency really that mattered. I shot a spec gig for them once, for And1. I would have loved to have kept working with them as they were on the cusp of blowing up. It was a very exciting time.
We shot this photo in their offices. I’m guessing it was 1998 or 1999. It was a fun shot and we did a few other crazy things, but I always loved this shot best.
