3 Big Announcements at The Sartorialist

I have been really busy this summer and a lot of those efforts are now big announcements.

1. I have signed a contract with CondeNet allowing them to handle ad sales for my blog.

I have lasted two years with no ads but Condenet is a great partner (an industry leader) that will be able to deliver advertisers that work within the spirit of this blog. I resisted ads for two years because i didn’t want to do Google ads or have to hunt for ads myself which would have taken me away form my top priority if shooting on the street. This money will help me with more self-funded trips to places like South America, more of Northern Europe and Asia (just to name a few). Also it will allow me to hire someone that can keep up on computer-based projects like “The Shopping Guide” and “The SartoriaList” while I ,again, can fully focus on shooting. NetaPorter.com will be the first advertiser starting on or about Sept. 6th.

2. I have signed with Jed Root which is one of the top international agencies for fashion photographers, stylist. hair and make-up etc.
I am really excited to be in the same agencies as established star photographers such as Michael Thompson, Diego Uchitel, Koto Bolofo.
Up to now I have paid the bills with a mix of special projects and editorials which have been very time consuming. Now working with the team at Jed Root I will be able to work on editorials and ads that fit my style and schedule while leaving the paperwork, etc to the team so I can continue to shoot.

3. I will also be working with Danziger Projects to handle print sales and exhibits. Again, I am super excited to be in such an elite group of artists. Chuck Close is amazing and I am honored to be in his company. I have been working on prints lately and if you like the quality of the images on the blog then you will love the print quality because it is even better.

I have two or three other projects still in work that I might be able to announce soon.

I just want to thank everyone for their support over the last two years. When i started The Sartorialist I thought it would be fun to put up photos for people to look at but I had not really thought that we would create such a great space to communicate our inspirations, thoughts, and dreams.

    I have been a reader and anonymous poster for a year and a half. I’m really grateful for the style topics you have raised, especially the ones that arise spontaneously, when you capture a look that surprises people. I love watching hundreds of people approve of a sartorialist one would never see in a magazine. On that note your blog is so current and inspiring that I rarely buy fashion magazines any more. To get back to the topic of this post, it has been really exciting to watch you form a career around something you love and do well. I look forward to your broadcasts from new places. Bravo, Sartorialist, bravo!

    Scott:
    Many congratulations and I, too, would encourage you to think about a book. Oft times during a day, we will take a break and look at what you have posted and it always sparks a good discussion. Sometimes about composition, sometimes about characters (our favorites are the senior men!), sometimes about age, sometimes about the influence of place on style-or indeed, style on place! Lots of good chapters there.

    You and your readers have inspired me to “take another look around” and truly see on many a day. Hope all of these wonderful new opportunities do not cause you to forget to be blissful as you “follow your bliss”.

    Hi Sart:

    At the risk of sounding trite, I find it inspiring that you found a way to “succeed” by doing something that you loved. Also, the thing that really separates your blog from the pack is the complete absence of snarkiness. It’s quite the opposite actually: You come across as a guy who loves fashion — and also likes people. I hope your Conde affiliation doesn’t compromise your voice or exuberance.

    A Fan

    This should tell you that by trusting your eye for beauty and style, you’ll have the world at your feet. Can’t wait to see this next level!

    Well sorry but I don’t wanna write my comment in english…

    Te felicito por todo el trabajo que has hecho hasta ahora, todo este tiempo has marcado la pauta para iniciar un moviemiento en internet sobre la moda urbana alrrededor del mundo y has dejado un registro increiblemente estetico para futuras referencias y para todo aquel que este involucrado en el mundo de la moda.
    La verdad has sido inspiracion para todos aquellos fotografos que sueñan con trabajar en casas de moda o simplemente expresar su talento, yo me cuento como uno de ellos por que gracias a tu blog decidi darme una vuelta por Nueva York el pasado mes de abril y gracias a tu blog he empezado a hacer algo de styling y fotografia para una revista en mi ciudad ( claro que no es nada comparado con tu trabajo).
    Me da gusto saber que quieres visitar sudamerica, aunque no exista la cultura de la moda y el consumo tanto como en los paises del primer mundo, pero estoy seguro que captaras con tu lente a muchos personajes con estilo.
    Me despido deseandote la mejor suerte del universo y al mismo tiempo disculparme por escribir mi comentario en otro idioma.
    Un abrazo!

    The fact that you followed your heart and continue to do so is such a wonderful example. I am thrilled it has paid off. You are truly a worldwide success story. You remind me of the poem by e.e. cummings: “To be nobody but your self, in a world which is working, night and day, to make you, just like everybody else, means to fight the greatest battle there is to fight, and never stop fighting” Great job Scott!

    I can hardly wait!
    You’ve been my favorite blog since I discovered you almost 2 years ago when I was 16.
    Your blog, and later your section in GQ, has made me realize how much I love fashion and has done more to develop my sense of fashion and style than other medium I’ve encountered… I’m glad you’ll be expanding and that you have done it without compromising the quality I have come to expect when I check your blog every day.

    Your site is uncluttered and inspirational on so many levels it is impossible to fault.

    Well done and congratulations on your new developments.

    I definitely suggest you sign on with a publisher and print a book or two with just photos and comments from previous years.
    you can even make a series.
    you’d make it super big! i know i would absolutely love to own a book of my favorite photographer’s work.

    congratulations sart, you totally deserve it. Working on this for the past 2 years shows so much commitment and passion. I only hope that your newfound commercialism does not impede that passion, or restrict the enormous scope of style and beauty you showcase. I think that’s what makes your site unique, the fact that it’s not just glamourous model types, or partying fashionistas, and I sincerely hope this new path will only help you grow further.

    Congratulations! When you said you will be able to travel more, i couldn’t help thinking you really should come to Helsinki sometimes, for example when visiting Stockholm as well. It’s a small city, but individuality can be found more and more often. Especially at small clubs like La Perse etc. Shops like Daniel Palillo’s Wunder, ivana Helsinki, Myymälä2 etc. make it possible to create so many different styles here as well!

You must come to my city in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! I wouldn’t say it was the biggest fashion hub but it’s fun to see how people dress up to their limits. There are Muslims here too who have a great sense of style!

    After commenting once before, I had another thought… People who dresses with flair are almost presenting themselves as mobile works or art. Your subjects spend time on grooming and bear the expense of maintaining a stylish wardrobe, which they graciously exhibit to the public, at no charge. Until now, you have been a collaborator, contributing your camera skills on a pro bono publico basis. By accepting sponsors, you will be turning a profit on the freely-given artistic expression of others.

    I am delighted that your hard work and excellent skills have earned you a job with top agency. You will now be fairly compensated for working with models who are also compensated and did not provide their own clothes. Congratulations! You deserve every penny!

    Sart, should you ever consider a redesign of the site,

    could you consider a separate pop-up window for the large versions of the photos? That way, one could read the comments side-by-side with the photo.

    (I sort of cheat now by simultaneously running two windows for your site. It works, but requires a little juggling!)
